Holistic Health: Lame Story Alert! NYTimes Sleep Story Fails Women

The health editor in me hates this!  Today’s New York Times features a story about sleep–a crucial part of overall wellness and wellbeing–on the fashion pages.  Even worse:  It gives the story zero medical context.  Why not just say that women’s sleep problems are all in their heads?

I’d like to see a NYTimes worthy story that discusses the biochemical and hormonal changes related to perimenopause that contribute to sleep issues in women –not just a sensational “society won’t let us rest” lament.

Note to Pamela Paul and the Times editors:  You can do better than this.
