Welcome to the Hormone Prescription Podcast.

(01:02): Hi everybody. Welcome back to the Hormone Prescription Podcast with Dr. Kyrin. Thank you so much for joining me today, we are talking about one of my favorite topics, what I call the nectar of life sleep. Are you getting enough? Everybody's worrying about do they have enough money? Do they have enough time? All you really need to worry about is, are you getting enough sleep? And then everything else will fall into place because it really is something you, you can't eat your way into good health without good sleep. You can't take a supplement exercise won't replace it. There's nothing that replaces sleep, but so many of us aren't getting enough. We have an epidemic of insomnia, particularly among women over 40. Why? Because of hormone imbalances. So my guest today, Devin Burke, is gonna come and shed some light on this topic. He's kind of a sleep maro, if you will, and he talks about you can't master what you don't measure.

(02:02): So we're gonna talk about how that applies to sleep. He's gonna teach you about what a bed buffer is and the 3 21 sleep protocol and a whole bunch of other things. You're really gonna enjoy this. He is lovely to speak with and listen to. And really I want you to start with thinking about this thought that he offered. How well you sleep dictates your entire next day. How will you sleep is dictated by how you start your day. So it's how you start anything. It's how you finish and sleep is at the beginning and end of every day. It's the bookend and it will make your life wonderful and your health prosperous and nourishing, or it will make you miserable as some of you can attest to. I know I personally went through all kinds of sleep phases during my unwellness phase. I went through the insomnia phase.

(03:01): Some nights I couldn't sleep at all, and then I went through the sleep 16 hours a day phase. So whatever phase you're in, we've got some answers for you. So I'll tell you a little bit about Devon and then we will get started. So, Devon is an international and TEDx speaker. He's the best selling author of the Sleep Advantage, the founder of Sleep Science Academy, and one of the top health and sleep coaches in the world.

(03:35): For having me. So,

(03:36): So I am super excited to talk about one of my favorite topics sleep because I call it the nectar of life. And if you don't have good sleep, you're just not gonna be healthy or happy and you're not <laugh>, you're not gonna really live your life to the fullest. So I think it's super important. I think we underestimate it. I think that most women over 40 are not getting enough sleep. I know some women tell me, I'll sleep when I die. I don't need to sleep now. And so it's this whole process of re-education. So let's start, you're, you're a sleep expert and let's start with the most important thing. Why is sleep so important?
