About this website
“Self-Help for Insomnia” is sponsored by Meditation for Health, a medical clinic in Toronto, Canada. We developed this self-help approach for our many patients with chronic insomnia & sleep deprivation. Our clinic encourages drug-free alternative treatment for insomnia whenever medically possible.

You can read Chapters 1-7 of Better Sleep Tips at this site. This is our clinic’s self-help workbook for people who have trouble sleeping. We hope you find these 7 pages of insomnia information useful.

You can also purchase our clinic’s sleep meditation CD at this site. If you buy the sleep meditation CD, we send you a copy of Better Sleep Tips too. This way, you can read the final chapters 8-20 to learn more about insomnia self-help, especially the simple meditation techniques that help our patients when they can’t sleep.
