Your guide, Dr. Eleanor Stein, has 30 years of personal and professional experience with these difficult to treat biomedical diseases.

As I slowly integrated the sleep recommendations, I have been able to enjoy better, more consistent rest and deeper sleep. It’s still a work in process, but my sleep has definitely improved.
