Say Goodbye to Insomnia – The highly Effective 5 Week, Drug-free Plan.

Sleep shouldn't be a struggle, but for a third of the population the nightly pattern of tossing, turning and that gnawing frustration is a regular occurrence. The Sleep Book's revolutionary five week plan now means that this will be a thing of the past.

Using a blend of mindfulness and new Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques, Dr. Guy shares his unique five week plan to cure your problems whether it's a few restless nights or a lifetime of insomnia. Most people who have trouble sleeping invest a huge amount of time, effort and money into fixing the problem.

Dr. Guy has discovered the secret lies not in what you do, but what you learn not to do. . . . as the more frustrated you become with sleeplessness the further sleep is pushed away. Dr. Guy's pioneering methods at The Sleep School clinic have been an unprecedented success.

By popular demand, his highly effective and 100% natural insomnia remedy is now here in this book. Say goodbye to the vicious cycle of sleepless nights by retraining your brain to sleep. Sleep well and restore the quality of life you deserve – for good.

Good book

The overall message is a good one: behave like a normal sleeper and break out from your before-bed routines. For me not doing anything therefore became the goal. So I have a few mixed feelings about this. Some activities are relaxing and prepare your brain to relax, creating a reflex. Also, check with your neurologist if your insomnia is in any way related to your body/nervous system, rather the uncontrollable thoughts at night. For me, it turned out I do not have a proper positioning of the spine - which in turn affects my blood flow to the brain and my ability to fully relax before sleep.

Start with this book. Then join the Sleep School.

Acceptance and Commitment is working for me. I love the Sleep School meditations that accompany the app. Dr. Meadows voice will put you in a trance.
The app requires you to join the Sleep School for one year and costs about $40. Well worth it to me!

Cured my long term insomnia

I have tried everything imaginable to cure my insomnia and was very skeptic that this book and it’s general premise of simply changing how I think about my problem could ‘cure’ me. I combined listening to it with the Sleep School App and I’m only a week into the 30 day course and I am absolutely gob smacked - after a couple of years of being unable to sleep without medication and other props I am sleeping totally normally. It feels like a miracle!

Life changing

After a bout of very severe insomnia this book gave me my life back. It works, but you have to persevere and trust, and it’s not fun or pretty to start with. But wow, it really is worth it, and it’s changed how I deal with all worrying situations so my nights and even my days are better now! Thank you Dr Guy!!

This book helped save my life.

I've had insomnia on and off since childhood - mostly on. It worsened over the past decade, and became severe after I had my first child nearly 3 years ago. I was also suffering with undiagnosed postnatal anxiety, and had developed a full blown panic disorder around the idea of not sleeping each night. It was the worst time of my life. Before I read this book, I had begun seeking therapeutic and pharmacological treatment for anxiety, and whilst this was definitely helping, my panic-driven insomnia persisted. Literally no medication was strong enough to knock me out when I was having those panic attacks, but practising the strategies presented in this book worked. I had some really dark days, and honestly wondered if I could keep living if so much of my daily energy was going to be absorbed by the fear of insomnia. t seems crazy now! But I'll never forget. I'm writing this review nine months on from listening to the book, and I'm still free from panic attacks and sleeping well most nights. I can even get back to sleep when my toddler wakes me up! I admittedly still take antidepressants which definitely help manage my anxiety, but I wouldn't be where I am today (rested and well) without this book. THANK YOU.
