Présentation de l'éditeur

An enlightened approach to insomnia, depressed mood, fatigue, and other sleep-related problems of everyday life, harnessing the power of light therapy to reset the natural clock.

Sleep problems and depressed mood often go hand in hand, forming a frustrating cycle. Michael Terman, Ph.D., has devoted his career to studying the brain functions that feed these disorders. In Reset Your Inner Clock, Terman and Ian McMahan, Ph.D., reveal the heart of his findings, a powerful program that recalibrates our internal clocks—our exquisitely designed, natural sensitivity to the timing and brightness of light exposure. These delicate mechanisms are often decimated by the modern demands of a 24/7 lifestyle.

Beginning with a questionnaire that pinpoints the problem areas, Terman helps readers decipher when their natural internal night begins and ends. The treatment process can then start, incorporating the power of natural light and, when necessary, supplemental light therapy. His approach has brought relief to thousands of sleep sufferers, as well as those burdened by bipolar disorder, seasonal affective disorder, depression, sleep disorders due to around-the-clock work schedules, and other impediments to vibrant health. For the first time, his findings are now available for a general audience, sharing the essential elements of chronobiology in clear, authoritative, scientifically grounded chapters that are easy to apply to a variety of situations.

As a practicing psychiatrist for over 35 years I found this book to be probably the most interesting that I have read. It has given me a new way of looking at an important new treatment modality to use in treating probably the majority of patients who walk through my door. Most of my patients have depression, sleep disturbance, mood disturbance, attentional issues, tiredness and fatigue. All these issues are addressed in this book in a very understandable yet scientific manner.

50 years ago psychoanalysis was the treatment of choice in psychiatry, followed by the current interest in psychopharmacology. After reading this book I have begun to realize that one can achieve with chronotherapy not only as much as one can achieve by treating with antidepressant medications, sleeping pills and stimulant medications but far more without resorting to medications all of which have potential side effects, some of these side effects potentially very serious.

Psychotropic medications effect various neurotransmitter systems in the brain in an attempt to normalize brain function. Chronotherapy does the same but in a far more natural manner, helping to normalize brain function caused by our unhealthy lifestyles. We are essentially living in a dark world, even though we are not nocturnal animals. Living in this indoor dark world and not getting sunlight, and even when we do get that light, it is not at the correct time of the day.

A relatively new branch of medicine “lifestyle medicine” (American College of lifestyle medicine) has attempted to place the focus in medical treatment away from drugs as a treatment of first choice towards healthy lifestyle. As an example instead of first treating high blood pressure or high cholesterol with medication, lifestyle medicine attempts to correct the problem with healthy nutrition and exercise. Chronotherapy does the same in attempting to correct unhealthy sleep and wake cycles and thus in most cases obviate the need for medications such as sleeping pills that can be harmful and addicting.

What is fascinating is the discussion of how all life form, both plants and animals have inner clocks that have to be constantly reset by sunlight. Any good gardener knows that their plants need certain optimal conditions, the right light, the right moisture and the right nutrients. A good doctor should of course know the same thing that their patient needs healthy nutrition, adequate exercise and, after reading this volume will also understand that they need adequate and healthy sunlight.

This book and its companion volume chronotherapy of affective disorders was an absolute eye-opener to me as I realize that these simple but scientifically proven methods can maintain health and restore health to those whose bodies and brains have been damaged by unhealthy lifestyle.

This is not “alternative medicine” but where mainstream should be focusing more attention. It is unfortunate that the medical profession has placed such an emphasis on medication as treatment of first choice. Medication most certainly has a place in treatment and the authors of this book are certainly not anti-medication but a good knowledge of physiology, biochemistry and neuroscience allows medical professionals to use that knowledge to choose appropriate safe treatments.

I would strongly advise physicians in all fields to read this book. Of course the individual as the owner of their own body and responsible for their own health would find this book fascinating. The potential of how chronotherapy could be utilized to understand many other diseases, not only sleep and psychiatric conditions, but conditions involving endocrine dysregulation and other medical problems is fascinating.

Thank you Drs. Terman and McMahan for this wonderful book

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insightful information and easy to read. 7 mars 2014

As a health provider I believe this book will benefit anyone who has some kind of sleep issues. You could have SAD (seasonal affective disorder) or even a mood disorder, this book has plenty of insightful information for both cases but also for the non-related ones (pregnancy, adolescense, late years, night shifts, and so on). The fact that there is scientific evidence that other alternative methods (proven of course) work instead of using sleeping drugs is amazing, even if you don't want to try light therapy by yourself they explain about some other inexpensive things you can do/use to regulate your sleep. So, yes this book is for everyone, the advanced and the beginners, and will benefit just anyone I'm sure.

This is just a book long ad for a product the author thought he'd have on the market soon after publishing. It still isn't out. While there is some useful info you can get free elsewhere.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 31 août 2014
Par Susan Henderson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I was disappointed in this book. It was recommended by a reviewer and it didn't offer any insights that aren't commonly known. Melatonin (which doesn't work long-term for everyone), good bedtime habits (if you have insomnia, you already know what these are) and matching your sleep schedule closer to your destination time as a jet-lag deterrent. Reads like a textbook in some parts. This seems more suited to be read by a peer of the author, not the general public.
