Right Sleep

Dr. Gominak’s Right Sleep Course

I had the pleasure of meeting neurologist Dr. Gominak MD in person last month who is offering a right sleep course next month. She has a rich insight into how to heal symptoms of Parkinson’s and other diseases by improving sleep. It is fascinating perspective that, in my opinion, has a great deal of merit. Her workshop below is open to clinicians and laypersons.

Below is the announcement she gave me permission to post here.

Dr. Gominak is proud to announce …

My next RightSleep® course , called Take Back the Night will be held February 24-25, 2018

at the beautiful Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix, AZ.

I run these only a few times a year, so if you’ve been curious and you’d love to finally heal your family’s’ sleep, now is a great time to join us.

You’ll learn a cutting-edge approach to healing sleep in a luxurious setting, and mix your business trip with beauty and play.

Who is this for?
RightSleep® is appropriate for educated laypersons who want to learn about sleep in more detail.  You are not required to have any formal training in sleep, but you are required to do all of the prerequisite reading and get yourself up to speed on the specific science that we will cover during the course. I will provide additional reading material for all non-clinicians who wish to attend. 

This event is for you, if:

  • You are ready to permanently fix your family’s sleep problems instead of patching them
  • You want to get to the root problem that causes insomnia, chronic fatigue, and sleep apnea!

Sleep Disorder with Parkinson’s

I have been dealing with Parkinson’s for 2 years. Last December right after Christmas I took a nap at the kitchen table and my family could not wake me up. They said I slept for 15 minutes. They called EMT. This has been going on at least once a month or twice sometimes.

I was admitted in the hospital twice but no one cannot find the cause.  Please help.  My wife is losing her mind.  




What a challenge you and your family are currently encountering!  Your sixty-four thousand dollar question is:

Why in the world is this strange thing happening to you?

The leading question I would ask you to consider is:

What has changed recently in your life?

Have you begun any new medications? Has there been unusual stress in your life? The answer to this question – whatever it might be – may suggest a reason why this is now happening to you.

At a minimum I suggest you carefully review the side effects of any and all medications you currently take. The symptom you describe sounds to me like a possible side effect of a medication. If this turns out to be true, you can explore substitute medications in consultation with your doctor or entertain another solution to address the symptom that the medication was intended to address.

Perhaps the sleep problem is not due to the side effects of medications. What then? You have already had two extensive check ups at the hospital with no resolution and no insight into what is happening here. I suggest that it is now time to consider other alternatives.

One possible diagnostic option is to take advantage of the Free Happy Hour offered by Sound Health Options. Every two weeks, Sharry Edwards offers free diagnostic services using Bioacoustic voice profiling. I suspect the underlying source of the imbalance could be identified with a Bioacoustic analysis of your voice and set you on a course of recovery to the relief of  you and your entire family.

Another alternative is to attend the Parkinsons Recovery Summit in Cincinnati this summer. Parkinsons Recovery is convening the 2012 Parkinsons Recovery Summit June 22 and 23 which will assemble practitioners from many different modalities. You might well succeed in finding a solution to the problem by consulting with one of the health care practitioners who will provide consultations at the Summit.

My guess is that you are deficient in one or more substance the body needs to maintain balance. Once you know the source of the imbalance, you can help your body come back into balance through diet and taking the specific supplements your body needs right now.
