028: Dr. Michael Grandner: The Sleep Doctor
"Sleep, nutrition, and exercise are three legs on the same stool. If you're not sleeping well, it's like trying to sit on a two-legged stool."
Dr. Michael Grandner is the Director of the Sleep and Health Research Program and an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.
He’s published hundreds of articles relating to sleep and health and you’ve seen him on every major news platform such as ABC, CNN, FOX, and the BBC.
His research focuses on how sleep and sleep-related behaviors are related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, neurocognitive functioning, mental health, and longevity.
In this episode, Dr. Grandner breaks down the causes of sleep disturbances and sleep apnea and discusses effective alternatives to the overly-prescribed CPAP machines.
How effective is CBD in treating sleep disorders? Well, we get into all of it.
Dr. Grandner gives three great resources that you can turn to immediately for help if you're experiencing any of these sleep disorders. I'll put them in the episode show notes over at themindunset.com. Support the show
