Description

From the Jacket

This book is a self-help guide for people with sleeping problems. It tells what they themselves can do to eliminate their problems in sleeping. Difficulty in sleeping is not something that must be passively accepted. Just as it is possible to learn to remain awake under special circumstances, it is possible to learn to sleep well again. Dr. Langen, Director of the Clinic and Polyclinic for Psychotherapy at the University Clinic of Mainz, bases his self-help program on these new medical findings.

Step 1: The reader becomes familiar with how the sleep-wakefulness mechanism functions, learns the workings of man’s biological clock, and the significance of dreams to sleep.

Step 2: Professor Langen explains how people with sleeping problems can liberate themselves from sleep medications in order to regain the ability to sleep.

Step 3: Various kinds of sleep disturbances, their causes, and treatments are clearly described in detail. By making a record of sleep habits and analyzing it, the patient finds out exactly which type of sleeper he is and can then initiate a planned program of treatment.

Back of the Book

We need to rest in order to restore energy to our bodies, particularly to the brain and nervous system. Sleep helps us do this. Some of the sleep problems people face are dreaming, nightmares, sleepwalking, snoring and insomnia. People deprived of sleep lose energy, become quick-tempered, lose concentration and make mistakes.

Being aware of these problems is the first step towards, therapy. Just as it is possible to learn to remain awake, it is possible to sleep well again.

This book helps you to recognize and solve your sleep problems.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
