Everyone who's head-injured knows that sleeping falls somewhere between difficult to manage and impossible. Because a head trauma often involves the reticular activating system (the part of the brain responsible for sleep and waking cycles) the body becomes easily confused when the person is attempting to relax. Sleep is often the function that suffers when there is a body/brain injury.

This show will be hosted and the guest will be Dorrin Rosenfeld, DC. She will discuss why the body needs to relax, why it cannot sometimes, and various solutions (and tricks) to help convince the brain to slow down and rest. These tricks are tried and true by one head-injury patient, who's had time (over 30 years) to explore different strategies and patterns to induce sleep. 

This show will focus on what is sleep, why we need it, how to achieve it, and the benefits we can expect from it.
