There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.

I have been promising this important podcast covering the value of sleep.

Without sleep we lack the energy, clarity, and creativity to truly thrive and excel in life.

Do you lack energy or struggle with low libido, unbalanced hormones, weight gain, poor mental focus or memory problems???

Are you an aspiring athlete wanting to make performance gains or minimize injury?

One thought on “Sleep, Energy, and Human Performance

  1. I’m a dentist in calallen, a neighbor and have been enjoying your podcast thoroughly.

    I’ve been studying sleep as well and how it relates to the TMJ system, oral cavity and airway.

    Just like you I had minimal sleep training in dental school…it was essentially a 1 hr lecture on the topic of obstructive sleep apnea but it was just the treatment!

    I’ve since learned so much and would to discuss how the tongue, nose and jaws affect airway and also how chronic inflammation and periodontal disease relate to sleep and overall health.
