Dr. Amen’s Digital Course for Insomnia

Can’t sleep? Tossing and turning all night? Staring at the ceiling? You could be one of about 50-70 million Americans who experience some type of sleep disorder. Insomnia is the most common, affecting almost one-third of our population. 

Sleep issues are also disproportionately high in those who have mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and bipolar disorder. Statistics like these are alarming, because getting adequate sleep is crucial for the health of the entire body, including the brain. And a large number of Americans are falling short. 

Many people assume they simply have to struggle through their sleep issues, but that’s not the case. Today, there is help available through evidence-based, natural insomnia therapies that can promote a good night’s rest. 

Even better, this health-saving information is now available in a format that can be absorbed anytime and anywhere, thanks to Dr. Daniel Amen’s Overcoming Insomnia course

This proven, on-demand course is hosted by Dr. Shane Creado, a board-certified psychiatrist and sleep medicine physician at Amen Clinics who was personally trained by Dr. Amen. The course takes you through everything you to know about insomnia—and how to overcome it.

Who Can Benefit from This Online Insomnia Course?

If you’re one of the millions of Americans struggling with insomnia, this online mental health course can be a game-changer for your health. That’s because insomnia can lead to a long list of related conditions, as well as daily obstacles that get in the way of living your most productive life. 

Have you found yourself struggling with any of the following symptoms?

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness or desire for daytime naps
  • Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep at night
  • Snoring, teeth grinding, or interrupted breathing during sleep
  • Restless legs syndrome or other restless movements during sleep
  • Headaches upon waking
  • Frequent nightmares

If so, you may be experiencing a sleep disorder such as insomnia—and it’s affecting your health. In the short term, issues like irritability, anger, difficulty concentrating, impulsive behavior, or brain fog may occur. But, without treatment, sleep problems like insomnia can lead to a higher risk for many additional conditions, including:

  • Cognitive and memory problems
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Panic attacks
  • Relationship problems
  • Suicidal thoughts and behaviors
  • Traumatic brain injury/concussion

Yes, everyone tosses and turns through a bad night of sleep on occasion. But if you’re frequently unable to get the required 7-8 hours of sleep each night, you’ll face a higher risk of mental health disorders, obesity, diabetes, compromised immune system functioning, cardiovascular issues, and more. 

Because the brain cleanses itself overnight, it requires this “downtime” to perform various key functions. Your brain and body are actually hard at work while you sleep! With the natural remedies for insomnia outlined in this course, you’ll be able to reap those necessary benefits more consistently.

Self-Paced Study for Easy Learning

One of the most appealing aspects of the Overcoming Insomnia course is the ability for viewers to learn at their own pace, whether at home or on the go. 

The programming includes 20 videos, each packed with a wealth of information—but in bite-size, easy-to-understand pieces for easy learning. And, due to the replayable format, you can review each module as many times as needed to fully absorb the information.

To provide critical background information, the first few videos offer general education about sleep and its functions. Lesson 1 introduces the sleep series as a whole, while the second video lesson delves into the entire sleep process. 

You’ll learn how sleep happens and its stages, as well as what regulates your sleep (including the circadian drive and the homeostatic sleep drive, also called the sleep debt drive). 

In this online sleep course, you’ll also discover: 

  • The many dangers of disrupted sleep
  • Details about insomnia—what it is, how it happens, and what influences it 
  • Common sleep disorders and how they’re associated with insomnia

This basic information will create a solid foundation, so that you’re well-prepared to learn about life-changing insomnia remedies in the remainder of the modules.

Exploring Natural Remedies for Insomnia

Lesson 6 of Overcoming Insomnia takes a crucial step toward healing, thanks to its comprehensive sleep evaluation. You’ll get several downloadable resources and assessments you can complete in the comfort of your own home. The evaluation uses rating scales to measure factors like sleepiness, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, sleep apnea, and the multitude of factors that can impact your sleep. 

In Lessons 7 and 8, it’s time to share some anti-insomnia tactics. You’ll learn how to create better outcomes, goal strategies, and what techniques may help. Specifically, you’ll discover the power of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), including its efficacy and potential safety concerns.

If you’re struggling with insomnia, you’re probably wondering what’s behind it—and how it can be overcome. In Lesson 9, you’ll learn how various substances affect sleep, including alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and other medications. 

This course also covers:

  • Thinking patterns that may disrupt sleep
  • Factors that can interrupt sleep, like chronic pain and menopause 
  • Sleep hygiene strategies
  • Natural supplements that can help

In other words, no matter what influences are behind your insomnia, chances are, you’ll find solutions designed to help you address your problematic sleep patterns.

Creating Lasting Change in Your Sleep Habits

In the last 3 lessons of this 20-part series, Dr. Shane Creado outlines the process of change and how to be more motivated to implement changes to your sleep. Then you’ll learn about maintaining gains and preventing future insomnia. 

Finally, you’ll get answers to frequently asked questions and a summary of everything you’ve learned to help the information stick.
