Kirk Parsley

Dr. Kirk Parsley served as the Undersea Medical Officer at Naval Special Warfare Group One (NSWG-1) from June 2009-Jan 2013. While there he developed and supervised the group’s first sports medicine rehabilitation center. He is a former SEAL (BUD/s class 164), and a graduate of the military’s medical school in Bethesda, Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences (USUHS) in 2004. His internship was in Obstetrics and Gynecology, at Balboa Naval Hospital in 2005. He then completed a Navy residency in Hyperbarics and Diving Medicine in 2006.

Doctor Parsley served as Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine, and has been a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine since 2006. He is certified in hormonal modulation (Age-Management Medicine) and has worked as a consultant for the Life-Wellness Institute, in San Diego. Doctor Parsley has lectured extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is currently completing a book on sleep optimization.

His philosophy for wellness is that we all need to live more closely to the way we have evolved as a species, in order to optimize our health and get the most out of our bodies and lives. He believes that many diseases and disorders that have come to be considered “typical” in modern society are unnecessary complications of living in a toxic environment, eating foods we are not designed to digest, excessive stress, and poor sleeping habits. His passion is to help his patients live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals.

Dr. Parsley spends as much of his spare time as possible with his wife Cindy, and his three beautiful children. He has been a competitive athlete his entire life, and enjoys nearly all outdoor activities and sports. However, his current fitness routine revolves around Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
