Ep 41: Doc Parsley Returns! Sleep, Adrenal Fatigue, and Why Your Hypothalamus Gives You Man Boobs

"Your diet is directly related to your ability to sleep." - Dr. Kirk Parsley

Dr. Kirk Parsley (@docparsley) is back! He’s our first return guest and I wanted to have him back on the show because I, and many of you, had so many questions for him after his last appearance in episode 10.

If you’re just diving into fixing your sleep hygiene, give episode 10 a listen first. This is almost a “part 2” kind of episode. We skip the basics we covered in episode 10 and dive head first into the complicated and confusing worlds of sleep, metabolic syndrome, low testosterone, metabolism during night shift and many other topics.

Get a pen and paper ready because it moves fast!

Doc also gives his perspective on how he and other physicians really aren’t “healthcare providers,” but really just “disease care providers.”

If you haven’t heard of Doc Parsley, well, that’s on you. Parsley is a former U.S. Navy SEAL, and after his active time in the teams, served as the physician for the west coast teams. Navy SEAL AND physician – he knows something about not getting much sleep.
