180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

This week we welcome to the show author, speaker, comedian and internet Youtube sensation Dr. Michael Breus. He is a Clinical Psychologist and both a Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine and a Fellow of The American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He was one of the youngest people to have passed the Board at age 31 and, with a specialty in Sleep Disorders, is one of only 163 psychologists in the world with his credentials and distinction. Dr. Breus is on the clinical advisory board of The Dr. Oz Show and appears regularly on the show (>30 times in 4 years).

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • Why is sleep so important and what happens if we don’t achieve quality sleep?
  • How can we hack our jet lag?
  • What supplements can we use to help us sleep?
  • How can we improve our home environment for sleep?
  • We were intrigued by your book - The Power Of When. Can you explain a little about the book.

 And this week, our awesome guest is Dr Michael Breus, also known as, “The Sleep Doctor.” Now, I have to say, I loved this episode. His enthusiasm and knowledge for this topic was amazing. Now, we’ve covered sleep a few times on the podcast before, but again, there was so many nuggets of wisdom to come out of this and the way I thought about sleep and my own personal sleep and how we apply it. And obviously, we know how passionate Stu is about sleep as well. And it was just great and I have no doubt you’re gonna love it.

[00:01:30] He covered things from jet lag to circadian rhythms to what we can do and hacks and tips and all sorts of stuff. And it was awesome. And if you aren’t familiar with his work, Dr Michael Breus is a clinical psychologist, and both a diplomat of the American Board of Sleep Medicine, and a fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He has a specialty in sleep disorders and is only 1 of 163 psychologists in the world with these credentials and distinctions. He also appears as a clinical advisory board of the Dr Oz show, and appears on the show on a regular basis. So yes, he knows what he’s talking about.

[00:03:00] Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cook as always. Good morning, Stuart.


Good morning, Guy.


And our awesome guest today is Dr Michael Breus. Michael, welcome to the show.

Dr. Breus

Thanks for having me, Guy and Stuart. I really appreciate it. It’s gonna be a lot of fun.


Yeah, it’s gonna be fantastic. Stu’s a kid in a candy shop as always with this topic. So we’ll see what happens. But the question I always ask everyone on the show when they come on, Michael, is if a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Dr. Breus

I would tell them that I teach people how to be better in bed.
