Course description

Every living organism on the planet needs sleep. Sleep is an integral component of human health, and a sufficient amount of good quality restful sleep is essential to prevent illness and to cultivate health in order to nourish life and longevity. In modern society the rates of insomnia and use of sleep medication have increased substantially over the years. Multiple research studies show that the current pandemic has and is severely disrupting sleep in more than fifty percent of the general population.
Desire to sleep and not being unable to is one of the most frustrating experiences in our modern existence. Chronic insomnia (defined as having difficulty sleeping several times a week for several months) can really disrupt a person’s life and wellbeing. This lack of rest puts a damper over a person’s everyday mood affecting quality of life and often turns sleep into a chore that a person dreads instead of a relief and opportunity to rest and recover.
The empirical knowledge gained through more than 2000 years of TCM to promote healthy sleep can now be explained, understood and supported by modern sleep research. Please join us for this free webinar to discover the 20 most important lifestyle and sleep hygiene tips to help your patient's achieve sufficient sleep that is both peaceful and restorative
