Dr. Virginia Gurley: Circadian Rhythm Synchrony & Wellness on Holy Hormones Honey! December 17

Dr. Gurley’s interview on the importance of living with circadian rhythms for optimal health wellness is now posted. This is very important information and should be shared.  Dr. Gurley and I both agree that the importance of circadian rhythm synchrony is the ‘missing link’ in health care.

Circadian Rhythm Synchrony Provides New Models for Wellness

Join Leslie Carol Botha, and guest Virginia Gurley, MD, MPH, founder and president of the AuraViva Clinic in Boulder, CO on Holy Hormones Honey! Monday December 17, 2012. on KRFC FM. Dr. Gurley will be addressing the importance of circadian rhythm synchrony for optimum health and wellness – including hormone balancing.

Virginia has 25 years of healthcare experience spanning obstetrics and gynecology, preventive medicine, public health, biomedical and health services research, clinical operations, healthcare finance, product development and healthcare IT. Nearly 15 of those years have been spent in physician executive positions within organizations such as Henry Ford Health System, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Colorado Access, McKesson Health Solutions and Healthways.

Virginia’s expertise and passions overlap within the realms of access to care, healthcare sustainability, circadian rhythm physiology, emergent dynamics and disruptive innovation.

In 2009, she combined her experience and passions to launch AuraViva based in Boulder, Colorado. AuraViva is dedicated to increasing the accessibility and effectiveness of health promotion through integrating wireless biosensors and mobile applications with circadian rhythm analytics and feedback for consumers and healthcare professionals.

Dr. Gurley received her BA from Reed College and her MD (alpha omega alpha) from University of California, Davis, School of Medicine. She completed her internship in Obstetrics and Gynecology at George Washington University and both her MPH (alpha omega delta) and Preventive Medicine and Public Health residency at Johns Hopkins University.


Synchronize the timing of your daily activities for optimum health and wellness

Sunlight and temperature cycles regulate the timing and effectiveness of basic behaviors such as sleep, physical stamina, cognitive performance, alertness and appetite – organizing each of these behaviors into a circadian rhythm. These same cycles also regulate and coordinate the circadian rhythm of less apparent functions such as metabolic rate, blood pressure, heart rate variability, cell division, cellular longevity, immune function and hormonal balance. The evidence for the critical role of physiological circadian synchronization based on sunlight and temperature cycles is growing rapidly. This same evidence is also revealing relationships between loss of physiological synchronization and many of the chronic diseases afflicting contemporary life.
