Sleep is such a critically important subject of discussion in the context of healthy living that we address it early and often here on this podcast. Thus, we’ve had fabulous guests like Shawn Stevenson, T.S. Wiley, Dr. Terry Brown, and others articulating the benefits of getting quality sleep. We had former Navy SEAL, medical doctor, and sleep specialist Dr. Kirk Parsley from DocParsley.com on the show back in Episode 883 in October 2014 and now he’s back today to gab a little more with Jimmy about sleep, fasting, ketosis, Navy SEAL challenges, his Sleep Cocktail (soon-to-be called Sleep Remedy) supplement, and a lot more. This was an awesome conversation about a wide range of health topics that you’ll certainly find interesting. ENJOY!

While most of us have done a great job dialing in our diet and even our fitness levels to exactly what works for us, there’s a major blind spot in a good number of health journeys that can unravel and sabotage even the best of nutritional health plans. That topic is sleep and combined with stress these are a nasty one-two punch death knell to any and every healthy lifestyle. This is something a St. Louis, Missouri-based health podcaster from The Model Health Show and corporate wellness coach named Shawn Stevenson (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with Shawn in Episode 915) understands abundantly well. He recognized how critically important this issue of sleep is in the success or failure of his clients by noticing consistent patterns that lead to compromised sleep. Now he’s put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled Sleep Smarter: 21 Essential Strategies to Sleep Your Way to A Better Body, Better Health, and Bigger Success. Listen in as Jimmy and Shawn dive deeply into what it takes to get some great ZZZ’s at night for better health.

Most people who get into the health community tend to find their way to improved nutrition and lifestyle choices as a direct result of some physical ailment they or someone they love have personally experienced. And that certainly describes bestselling author and podcaster Shawn Stevenson who was told by conventional medicine in his early twenties that there was nothing they could do about what was described as an “incurable” spinal condition known as degenerative disc disease. This didn’t sit well with Shawn and that began him on his own search for self-discovery about what was happening to his body and health which helped him heal his body and ignite within him a love and desire to help others.

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 and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, 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!
