“We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis” writes Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post. This crisis has profound consequences – on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness.
Sleep plays a role in almost every aspect of health, including weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, cognitive decline, and chronic and acute pain.
What causes chronic sleep disorders, how does it affect our lives, and what can we do about them? During this course, Andrew Gaeddert will discuss difficulty falling asleep, waking up frequently, insomnia, snoring, and integrative approaches to sleep apnea. He will also explore problems with insomnia medications such as Ambien, Lunesta and Benedryl. Andrew will also discuss the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. He will offer a range of recommendations and tips from leading scientists on how we can get better, more restorative sleep, and harness its incredible power. Acupuncture, nutrition, and Chinese herbs will be reviewed and considered. Practitioners attending this webinar will be able to transform the health of their families and patients by incorporating the tools and strategies offered.
