Dr. Darley has a dynamic and interactive style that emphasizes motivating participants to take charge of their sleep and health. She is adept at answering questions and giving attendees the real-life solutions and strategies needed to implement improvements. Dr. Darley’s interest in founding Naturopathic Sleep Medicine arises from the belief that since sleep is so basic and essential to health, it makes sense to use the most natural, least invasive therapies to help people obtain the sleep they need.
Dr. Darley is a pioneering internationally recognized expert in the use of natural, behavioral and lifestyle medicine for the treatment of sleep disorders. Dr. Darley founded the Institute of Naturopathic Sleep Medicine to fill the need for natural, less invasive solutions to a common problem–poor sleep.
The Institute teaches sleep health to employees at corporations and agencies, offers online sleep courses, and provides patient care based on natural treatments. “My philosophy is that sleep is essential to our health and wellbeing. Every person deserves a good night’s rest.” Naturopathic Sleep Medicine is a developing field of medicine which is distinct from that provided at allopathic sleep centers. Naturopathic Sleep Medicine joins together the knowledge of physiological sleep processes with the treatment principles of naturopathic medicine.
Dr. Darley is playing an active part in the development of the field of Naturopathic Sleep Medicine through her original research on naturopathic treatments for sleep and specialist training for other doctors.
