Dr. Kirk Parsley’s story begins at 17 years old when he joined the Navy SEALs right out of high school. He spent the next decade of his life with no choice but to live at the peak of physical and mental performance. For most people, serving in one of the world’s most elite special forces would be enough of an accomplishment, but not for “Doc.”
After serving with the SEALs, he entered medical school at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences (USUHS). Doc graduated in 2004, a year after the birth of his third child. He interned in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Balboa Naval Hospital San Diego in 2005 and subsequently completed a Navy residency in Hyperbarics and Diving Medicine in 2006. After all those years of living on the edge, Doc realized the most underused and underrated tool in his arsenal was a good night’s sleep.
From 2009 to 2013, Doc served as an Undersea Medical Officer at Naval Special Warfare Group One. While there, he led development and supervised the group’s first Sports Medicine Rehabilitation center. Doc saw firsthand the effect that low sleep and high stress had on the young SEALs who were under his care, men who he realized looked a whole lot like himself just a few years before. It was during this time he began to develop the all-natural Sleep Remedy that is now the supplement of choice for Navy SEALs, pro athletes, C-level executives, and thousands of others.
