This is the definitive work on how sleep works -- and doesn't work. It explains how we've evolved our sleep cycles into a big mess by not honoring them. From the invention of artificial lights, man's natural sleep cycles have been in increasing jeopardy until today we are so far removed from treating our bodies the way they were created to be cared for that it's no wonder we're all tired.
Written from an anthropological perspective, this book will give you the tools you need to bring your lifestyle into harmony with what your body needs to get a good night's sleep.
This book is also listed in the nutrition section, but since our bodies are complicated creations, it gives important information on healing our sleep, which is vital to hormonal balance and true holistic health. Every system in our bodies is connected to every other system and they all affect each other. The way we eat and treat our bodies affects our sleep; and our sleep affects our hormones and everything else. There is a substantial chapter on sleep which gives further specifics about how nutrients and hormones affect our sleep and how to heal that relationship.
