SHUT UP and sleep

Coming soon

Praise

Disturbed sleep affects large numbers of adults and children. The causes are still poorly recognized despite the heavy toll they take on the daily life of individuals. This very well done book, written by an exceptionally knowledgeable sleep specialist who deals with these problems daily, brings easily understood information to those ailing from such syndromes. It is a highly recommended reading.

Dr. Rama brings the sleep sufferer to an enlightened state of self-reflection that may have taken years, if ever, to accomplish alone.

Is it possible to tell by just looking at someone - the proportions of the face, the angles of the jaw, and the width of the smile - whether or not that person can sleep? Surprisingly, the answer is yes.

Synopsis

“SHUT UP and sleep” is a unique, non-fiction, health book based on the premise that breathing is the foundation of sleep. With symptoms told through stories, fables, poems, dialogue, imagery, and letters, the book takes the reader on a journey toward better sleep. Readers will emotionally resonate with the symptoms while organically learning complex medical, surgical, and dental information. A checklist connects the seemingly disparate symptoms and also serves as a template for the reader to share with their physician.

Out of every ten people on Earth, eight partially breathe through their mouth. The lessons in the book can benefit the sleep and health of these individuals. With all due respect, now shut up and read.
