About this site
Ask Doctor Jad is a website run by me, Doctor Jad (MBBS, MRCP). Who'd have thought?
I'm a hospital doctor who studied in the United Kingdom and I'm currently working in Internal Medicine. This involves diagnosing and managing conditions involving most of our organs and systems.
During this journey, I've had a few brushes with insomnia myself, so I know what sort of impact the inability to sleep can have on your life. Thankfully, my training equipped me with the tools to come up with evidence-based strategies to make my sleepless nights a thing of the past.
I understand that not everyone has been so lucky and quite a few have come across dodgy products and services on the internet, ranging from those that simply don't work to scams and downright dangerous suggestions.
So, that's what this website is for. To share some of the things I've learned along the way, in the hope that others might benefit from them.
How this website works
Ask Doctor Jad uses affiliate links to the promoted products. This means that I may earn a small commission on any sales, at no extra cost to you. However, the only recommended products here are the ones I have personally chosen, with a robust evidence base behind them. I will never promote any product with pure financial motivation. My priority is and always will be to provide accurate, unbiased medical information to the professional standard expected of a doctor, so that my readers can make fully informed decisions themselves.
Please note that this website is primarily aimed for a US audience. Medical guidelines may differ between countries and over time, which is another reason why this resource does not aim to and will never replace engagement with your local healthcare service.
