About Dr. Roger Washington
A Stanford Medical School graduate and Academy of Family Physicians Fellow, Roger W. Washington, M.D. has answered the question, “Doctor, Why Am I Sick?” for 30 years. In his first book, “Lack of Sufficient SLEEP MATTERS,” Dr. Washington decodes the root cause of illness he discovered in California’s Silicon Valley, where sacrificing sleep is the norm. Son of a nurse and hospital attendant, and a father to teenagers Jared and Maya, Dr. Washington chose the all-encompassing medical training of a family practitioner to become a more effective healer as well as to realize his passion for teaching the principles of illness prevention.

For 30 years, Roger W. Washington, MD has studied why people get sick when they do. It turns out the cause of sickness is rather simple. In Lack of Sufficient SLEEP MATTERS: Decode The Root Cause of Your Illness, Dr. Washington gives readers the tools to understand: a simple algebraic equation that predicts your chances of becoming ill, why sickness often occurs after “stressful” circumstances and how lack of sufficient sleep (LOSS) is the cause of diseases such as migraines, IBS, PMS, fibromyalgia, and neuropathy. Dr Washinston also delves into how the onset of diabetes, which is supposedly genetic and environmental, could be delayed or even prevented with proper sleep patterns.
