Can a drug-free cure for insomnia actually work better than prescribed drugs? Dr. Gregg D. Jacobs marshals compelling evidence that it can. An astounding 100% of patients using his program reported sleep improvement, and 75% became normal sleepers. Insomniacs fell asleep faster using his program than they did when using sleeping pills. What’s more, their improved sleep was maintained or enhanced, even at long-term follow-ups. This book offers a safe, natural, and highly effective means of conquering insomnia without drugs.
