DALLAS, TX, March 15, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- A new book, Beyond a Glass of Milk and a Hot Bath: Advanced Sleep Solutions for People with Chronic Insomnia, by medical researcher and bestselling author Connie Strasheim, is based on the premise that conventional sleep solutions are inadequate for those with chronic health challenges because they don't address the root cause of insomnia. Correspondingly, the book addresses ten common causes of insomnia, particularly in those with neurological illness, and provides specific solutions for each one.
Among the factors that cause insomnia, according to Ms. Strasheim, are:
- Electromagnetic pollution
- High histamine and inflammation
- Neurotransmitter imbalances
- Hormonal imbalances
- Stress and emotional trauma
- Physical pain and chronic infections
- Sleep medication abuse
- Poor sleep hygiene
Ms. Strasheim provides solutions for each one of these problems, which range from free, hands-on manual therapies, to nutritional supplements and more expensive brain wave therapy devices. Among the tools described are:
- Devices for lowering electromagnetic fields in the sleep environment, such as Graham-Stetzer filters
- Natural, non-toxic and prescription remedies for lowering histamine and inflammation
- Nutrients, amino acids and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for balancing the hormones and neurotransmitters
- Cognitive therapies that address the emotional and spiritual causes of insomnia
- Strategies for proper sleep hygiene
- Homeopathic and botanical remedies
- Brain wave-modulating devices
In addition, Ms. Strasheim provides insights on how to wean off of benzodiazepine drugs and other sleep medications, and shares suggestions to help readers determine which tools are most appropriate for them, based on their specific health challenges, and how to put together a protocol that best meets their needs.
Beyond a Glass of Milk and a Hot Bath was inspired by Ms. Strasheim's near decade-long battle with insomnia and chronic Lyme disease. She discovered through her healing journey that the more traditional tools and treatments for insomnia, such as melatonin or sleep medication, were not enough to restore her sleep, and were also inadequate for addressing the unique challenges of those with neurological illness.
At just 120 pages, Beyond a Glass of Milk and a Hot Bath is short but succinct, and provides a strong introduction to a variety of sleep solutions that readers can learn about and research further on their own.
