Although Cure His Sleep

According to Dr. Sylvie Royant-Parola, neurobiologist and psychiatrist, a specialist in sleep disorders, sleep can be learned in many cases. This is the theme of his book "How to go back to sleep by himself"

Sleep well lets see life in pink. Unfortunately sleep disorders affect many of us. How many people regularly suffer?

Dr. Sylvie Royant Parola: Sleep disorders are common. If we confine ourselves to sleep disorders and chronic disabling conditions, 10% of the population suffers from insomnia troublesome in everyday life and 5% complained of abnormal sleepiness. It always amazes me is tolerance to the symptoms that characterize these patients. They are reluctant to visit because they often do not realize that there are diseases behind these symptoms, and therefore treatment options.

Can you clarify what are the three most common errors that you encounter in consultation?

Dr PRS: The first mistake is to lie without sleep. This is much more common than people think. If you do a little survey around you by asking: “why will you sleep?”, You’ll be surprised at the answers. Most people say, “because it’s time”, “I need my eight hours sleep (or another time!)”, “I feel tired”. Very rarely do you hear “because I’m sleepy.” Yet it is fundamental not to bed only when sleepy. The second mistake is not to arrange a time to relax, a “lock decompression” before bedtime. We can not spend all of a sudden a sustained activity in sleep. The mechanisms of arousal must be put on hold to allow the triggering mechanisms of sleep. We must therefore learn to stop and look for quiet activities, not scary, not related to the occupation or the worries of the moment. Finally, we must abandon the idea that to bed earlier will catch up on sleep we lost. The insomniac spends a lot of time in bed. Especially when lying down often before, especially not to sleep, but “to rest” with the secret hope that sleep will win surreptitiously, without him ever noticing. It does not work, on the contrary!
