New York Times: "How an insomnia therapy can help with other illnesses" by Austin frakt

"What should doctors address first, insomnia or the co-occurring condition? How about both at the same time? A new study suggests that a therapy that improves sleep also reduces symptoms of other illnesses that often disrupt it.

...according to Jade Wu...For those who are both chronically tired and chronically sick, the route to additional relief of both may be through the mind."

journal of the American medical association - internal medicine: "Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia comorbid with psychiatric and medical conditions: a meta-analysis" by jade Wu, phd

"Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia is efficacious for improving insomnia symptoms and sleep parameters for patients with comorbid insomnia. A small to medium positive effect was found across comorbid outcomes, with larger effects on psychiatric conditions compared with medical conditions. Large-scale studies with more rigorous designs to reduce detection and performance bias are needed to improve the quality of the evidence."
