Understanding "How do I Sleep Better" | Dr. Vyga Kaufmann | TEDxBoulder

  • Опубликовано: 22 окт 2015
  • Have we all thought that we could sleep better? Can we solve sleep? Dr. Vyga Kaufmann discusses just what sleep disorders are and what tools you have to sleep better tonight. Hint: no square screens anywhere near your bed.
    When Vyga Kaufmann, PhD thinks about a night of quality sleep she envisions Ivan Pavlov comfortably reclined in a freight train gliding down a mountain under a moonlit sky. As a clinical psychologist with 20 years of professional experience in mental health care and a relentless curiosity about how and why we sleep she has applied her expertise to promoting awareness about the ways that seemingly benign behaviors can impact overall quality of sleep. Kaufmann is a founding partner of Summit Behavioral Sleep Medicine, part-time instructor in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at CU Boulder, hiker of Mt. Sanitas, and mother of an energetic and inquisitive 4-year old daughter.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

    Actually deep sleep is not a lack of consciousness but consciousness without objects.

    This was a waste of 11 minutes. No new information and there is a lot more to sleep than what is in this video. Very basic

    CBTI sounds like a way of asking insurances for more money and putting symptoms under the rug like going with rX drugs

    I almost gave up treating the dreadful insomnia I`ve experienced for two years. But ever since I followed this sleep program “bamwoko press” (Google it), my sleeping problem was gone and sleeping in my bed just felt good. This is product you should not miss. I was the biggest skeptic but now I am the number one believer.

    I`ve been an insomnia patient for more than a decade. After using this sleep program “bamwoko press” (Google it) for one week, I was able to attain eight hours rest every single night. I did not even have to complete the plan just to get enough rest again. My insomnia is eventually gone thanks to this program.

    What has actually helped me: When your mind won't shut up, White Chestnut flower essence, 4 drops in small amount of water. If you worry too much about loved ones, add Red Chestnut flower essence. When stress is making you altogether too wound up and overwrought to sleep, Pantothenic Acid (B5) 500 mg a half hour before bed time. A doctor recommended this, said it would sedate me and then my body would flush what it didn't need, no side effects. Pantothenic Acid also revolutionized the life of a friend, it worked so well for her. She overcame depression. Vervain flower essence helps one not go around overwrought, which affects our ability to sleep. (If you are very sensitive and highly intuitive, you might also try Chestnut Bud flower essence for coping better.) Flower essences are not sedating and can be taken day or night for better functioning. Eventually a sleep study proved that I was stopping breathing 16 times a night, disturbing my sleep - not waking me but causing huge fatigue. If you snore and have fatigue, I would go to a sleep doctor - they can send home a device you can wear to test you now, you don't have to stay overnight for the sleep test. My CPAP isn't sexy, but a good night's sleep night after night is priceless - I function better on all levels!

      How does this differ from using drugs? Marijuana, for example? It does help me sleep, but it's hard to find it here because it is still illegal to sell it.

    Doctors don't have much to offer - we know that drugs impair sleep quality and often don't work. In the UK CBT is advocated as first line treatment - but it is expensive and we don't have enough practitioners. Online CBT may help. And as one of the comments points out, it may only be a solution for anxiety linked insomnia. We are working on prompting the brain to follow good sleep patterns by using extremely low power electrical prompts - Zeez Sleep Pebble. Please check us out. Especially researchers.

    Absolutely useless. CBT does appear somewhat effective for anxiety, which could help a bit with insomnia. It could also potentially treat sleep anxiety (i.e. anxiety about insomnia). However, why would this be sufficient? What about people who are resistant to placebo? What about cost? Isn't this rather condescending and dismissive?
    I'm a big fan of drugs. However, the common sleep drugs impair sleep quality. I'm currently interested in hydroxyzine 100-200mg per night, as it should improve sleep quality. I haven't tried it yet, but hope to soon. It is an unscheduled legend drug and an antihistamine, so I imagine it's not hard to get upon request.

    Oh "if you have insomnia maybe you should get it checked out". I did just that and instead of the doctor trying to understand my sleeping disorder, they only wanted to prescribe prescriptions. Once that I told the doctor I wasn't interested in prescriptions he basically told me he couldn't help me.

    sounds more like a sales person. also removing symptoms is a poor goal for health treatment.

      Great Video clip! Forgive me for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you researched - Millawdon Impulsive Wish Trick (search on google)? It is a good one off product for getting rid of insomnia without the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my friend Sam after many years got great success with it.

      The point of the talk is stop using band-aid solutions. Getting a genuine good night's sleep requires a holistic approach that often means making lifestyle changes. CBTi can help you navigate that.

      Exactly. This talk was so bogus. 10 minutes of build up and then "I can't diagnose you with a treatment unless I meet you, but eat healthy and exercise in the meantime."

    This is the same tired advice we've heard in every article written about sleep. And no, CBT-I should not be the first line of defense with insomnia. It should be trying to evaluate the physical reasons in the body that is preventing you from sleeping well.
