Awareness of sleep-related health problems including sleep apnea has become much more mainstream, which is great news for both patients and practitioners. There’s been a surge of excellent content and sleep resources aimed at getting the message about sleep health out there, so much so that it can be difficult to find out exactly what you need to know to address sleep-related issues.
So I decided to make a short list that covers some of the most informative information about sleep health, ranging from books to podcasts.
If you, or someone in your family suffers from any kind of sleep-related condition, or if you’ve got any concerns, I’d urge you to speak to your doctor or dentist to get a clear diagnosis. Or you can of course always get in touch with me. I’d be happy to have a chat and help guide you through the process of finding the right doctor, and asking the right questions.
Regardless of where you are in your journey to better sleep, these sleep resources are a great way to increase your understanding about sleep in general, and exactly how important good sleep is.

I’m a big fan of a book called The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox by Dr. Mark Burhenne DDS. In fact, I include a copy of this book in the treatment kit for every student who takes one of my MyoMentor training programs.
In addition to the book, there are a number of good articles on his site:
