A pioneer in the field of sleep medicine shows women how to solve their sleep problems.

Do you toss and turn at night? Do you wake up repeatedly at all hours? Do you fall asleep in the daytime when you don't want to? These could be symptoms of a sleep disorder that may make you irritable and exhausted and could endanger your health.

Sleep disorders among women are common, but until recently they were largely misunderstood or misdiagnosed by the medical establishment. With Can't Sleep, Can't Say Awake, Meir Kryger, M.D., a leader in sleep disorder research and treatment, breaks through the mystery to show you why your sleep is unsatisfying or unpredictable, what the causes might be, and -- best of all -- what you can do to fix them. You'll discover:

  • What healthy sleep is and how much you should be getting every night
  • Sleep problems unique to women, including those related to menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause
  • How family, psychological conditions, and the 24/7 world can cause sleep problems
  • How to combat specific disorders such as sleep apnea and insomnia that may be causing your symptoms
  • Guidance to the help and resources available in Canada you need to get treatment

The journey to a good night's sleep begins with the right information. With the help of Dr. Kryger, you can begin that journey and achieve the nightly rest you need for a healthier and happier life.
