    Insomnia can be caused by psychiatric and medical conditions, unhealthy sleep habits, specific substances, and/or certain biological factors. Recently, researchers have begun to think about insomnia as a problem of your brain being unable to stop being awake (your brain has a sleep cycle and a wake cycle—when one is turned on the other is turned off—insomnia can be a problem with either part of this cycle: too much wake drive or too little sleep drive). It's important to first understand what could be causing your sleep difficulties. 
    Medical Causes of Insomnia 
    There are many medical conditions (some mild and others more serious) that can lead to insomnia. In some cases, a medical condition itself causes insomnia, while in other cases, symptoms of the condition cause discomfort that can make it difficult for a person to sleep. 
    Examples of medical conditions that can cause insomnia are:Nasal/sinus allergiesGastrointestinal problems such as refluxEndocrine problems such as hyperthyroidismArthritisAsthmaNeurological conditions such as Parkinson's diseaseChronic painLow back pain 
    Medications such as those taken for the common cold and nasal allergies, high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid disease, birth control, asthma, and depression can also cause insomnia. 
    In addition, insomnia may be a symptom of underlying sleep disorders. For example, restless legs syndrome—a neurological condition in which a person has an uncomfortable sensation of needing to move his or her legs—can lead to insomnia. Patients with restless legs syndrome typically experience worse symptoms in the later part of the day, during periods of inactivity, and in the transition from wake to sleep, which means that falling asleep and staying asleep can be difficult. An estimated 10 percent of the population has restless legs syndrome. 
    Sleep apnea is another sleep disorder linked to insomnia. With sleep apnea, a person's airway becomes partially or completely obstructed during sleep, leading to pauses in breathing and a drop in oxygen levels. This causes a person to wake up briefly but repeatedly throughout the night. People with sleep apnea sometimes report experiencing insomnia.

    When you’re living with an eating disorder, things can feel confusing. Sometimes it’s hard to separate yourself from the eating disorder.

    -How eating disorders distort your thoughts 
    -How eating disorders keep you off-balance with your emotions 
    -How to break the eating disorder cycle and live your values 
    Editorial Reviews: 
    “Recover Your Perspective is written by someone who has done just that––and then some. Janean is able to present the essentials of recovery with the heart-felt compassion of someone who has traveled into the depths of an eating disorder and found her way out, and also with the comprehensive understanding of a highly skilled psychologist and certified eating disorder specialist. While it is chock full of the necessary steps and practical skills essential for recovery, it is also infused with hope, humor, a little bit of sass, and a profound understanding of the recovery journey ––from the inside out. This book is truly a gift to anyone seeking recovery and freedom.” – Anita Johnston, Ph.D., CEDS, Author, Eating in the Light of the Moon
