Former Navy SEAL, medical doctor and sleep medicine specialist Dr. Kirk Parsley is our interview guest today in Episode 883 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America's biggest problem.
Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team, why he bases his lifestyle philosophy for wellness on evolutionary principles, how most chronic health problems of today are completely unnatural and unnecessary, the indelible connection between sleep and hormones, and a whole lot more! You'll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!
