This episode is brought to you by Pendulum and InsideTracker.The word “metabolism” gets tossed around quite a bit, usually in the context of weight loss. It’s important to realize that our metabolic health is so much more than that—it’s the way our 37 trillion cells create energy so that we can do all the things we want to do in life, big and small. With that in mind, it’s pretty alarming to note that nine of the 10 leading causes of death in the US are directly caused or worsened by poor blood sugar control and declines in other metabolic markers. Chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and more are all linked in one way or another to various metabolic dysfunctions. On today’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Casey Means to talk about the best ways to dial in our metabolic health and take back control of how we feel and how we age. Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and Cofounder of the metabolic health company Levels, an associate editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a lecturer at Stanford University. In this episode we dive into: -Optimal triglyceride levels and understanding the triglyceride/LDL ratio-Optimal fasting insulin levels-Optimal HA1C levelsListen to the full episode here.For more on Dr. Casey Means, follow her on Instagram @drcaseyskitchen and @levels, Twitter @drcaseyskitchen and @levels, and through her website, levelshealth.com.This episode is brought to you by Pendulum and InsideTracker.Pendulum is the first company to figure out how to harness the amazing benefits of Akkermansia in a probiotic capsule.

This episode is brought to you by Birch Living and Vivobarefoot.A calorie is a calorie, right? Wrong. This myth that refuses to die keeps people from getting and staying healthy, as well as losing weight and keeping it off.The current thinking is as long as we burn more calories than we consume, we will lose weight. But thinking that losing weight is all about energy balance or calories in/calories out vastly oversimplifies the truth. To make matters worse, the food industry and government agencies perpetuate this lie and actually rely on you believing it to stay afloat. On today’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Robert Lustig to talk about why calories aren’t the full story when it comes to weight loss, the real dangers of eating too much sugar, and how to take better care of our metabolic health.Dr. Lustig is a neuroendocrinologist with expertise in metabolism, obesity, and nutrition. He’s the Emeritus Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology and a member of the Institute for Health Policy Studies at UCSF. He is also one of the leaders of the current “anti-sugar” movement that is changing the food industry, in part through his game-changing books. His latest work is Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine. In this episode we dive into: -The calorie myth -The connection between fructose and metabolic disease-The biggest sources of fructose in our diet -The four substrates in our food supply that damage mitochondria Listen to the full episode here.For more on Dr. Robert Lustig, follow him on Facebook @drrobertlustig, Twitter @robertlustigmd, YouTube @robertlustig, and through his website, robertlustig.com.

This episode is brought to you by Cozy Earth and Pendulum.A lot of people have fear around meditation. They don’t want to sit alone with their thoughts, and many times people give up because they feel like they can’t turn off their minds. But meditation isn’t actually about what happens while you sit with your eyes closed, and it’s not about turning off your mind. It’s about mind-full-ness—the noticing of the ebb and flow of your thoughts—and the benefits you get throughout the rest of your day.Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with our friend Light Watkins to talk about overcoming fear around meditation, creating space from our critical thought patterns, and getting intentional about our values, time, and relationships. Light has been operating in the meditation space since 1998, first as a practitioner, then as an apprentice to his Vedic Meditation teacher, and finally as a teacher himself. Prior to the pandemic, he was traveling the world from a single backpack and giving talks on happiness, mindfulness, inspiration, and meditation, as well as leading popular meditation trainings and retreats.In this episode, we dive into:   -Breaking through hypercritical self-talk (1:11)-Why our mind is so active at night (12:32)-Light’s minimalist approach to social media (20:06)-Why self-discipline is about honesty (35:17)-How to tap into your inner guidance (37:18) -The importance of inner work when it comes to relationships (45:31)-How to cultivate happiness (1:07:15)-Light’s approach to meditation (1:11:51)-Spiritual minimalism (1:25:45)Also mentioned in this episode:-The Inner Gym: A 30-Day Workout for Strengthening Happiness-Knowing Where to Look: 108 Daily Doses of Inspiration-The Happiness Insiders For more on Light Watkins, follow him on Instagram @lightwatkins, Twitter @lightwatkins, and through his website, lightwatkins.com.

This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and Vivobarefoot.Uric acid is a central player in metabolic mayhem. Despite its long association with gout and kidney stones, it’s involved in so much more—especially our metabolic disease epidemic.There are three things that raise our levels of uric acid: purines, alcohol, and fructose. The latter is the biggest challenge, due to its overwhelming presence in our Standard American Diet. That doesn’t mean all fruit is bad or even that all alcohol and purine-rich foods have the same effect. Like all parts of health and nutrition, there are nuances we need to consider to create optimal health.Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks about uric acid, the role it plays in turning on, or off, our body’s fat-storage switch, and how getting it under control can significantly reduce our risk of chronic disease.In this episode, we dive into:  -The link between uric acid and metabolic dysfunction-Why our metabolic switch is always turned on-Hidden sources of fructose in our diets-How uric acid levels can tell us a lot about our cardiometabolic health Also mentioned in this episode:-Try This: How To Turn Off Your Fat-Storage Switch-The Latest Science on How to Turn Your Body’s Fat-Storage Switch Off with Dr. Richard Johnson-​​Nature Wants Us to Be Fat: The Surprising Science Behind Why We Gain Weight and How We Can Prevent—and Reverse—It-Try This: Smoothie Recipes That Won’t Spike Your Blood Sugar-Calculate Your Fructose Intake -Drop Acid: The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid―The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health-UASure Uric Acid Meter This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and Vivobarefoot.Right now, ButcherBox is offering new members a great deal.

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers and Pendulum.Our food supply is dramatically less nutrient-rich than it has ever been, and it’s taking a toll on our health. A shocking 99 percent of Americans are nutrient deficient, including over 90 percent who are deficient in omega-3 fats and 50 percent who are deficient in magnesium. Add to that chronic stress and a heavily processed diet, and it’s a recipe for nutrient deficiency disaster.Today, we’re sharing a Masterclass episode with Dhru and Dr. Hyman, all about supplements, how to use them effectively, and the top supplements for longevity.

Sit for one hour less per day—just one hour less! This is something anyone can do.I know that doesn’t sound like much, but according to a recent study, reducing sedentary time by just one hour per day can have remarkable benefits for your metabolic health.Our modern-day sedentary lifestyle puts us at risk for blood sugar imbalances, weight gain, and chronic disease.

This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Pendulum.Most of us do not recognize the degree to which digestive problems can wreak havoc in the entire body, leading to allergies, arthritis, autoimmune disease, rashes, acne, chronic fatigue, mood disorders, autism, dementia, cancer, and more. So having a healthy gut means more than simply being free of annoyances like bloating or heartburn; it is absolutely central to your health. Your gut is connected to everything that happens in your body. That is why Functional Medicine almost always starts helping people treat chronic health problems by fixing their gut.Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks to Dr. Elroy Vojdani about why the gut is so heavily involved in immune regulation, how leaky gut (also known as intestinal permeability) happens, and what to do about it. Dr. Vojdani is the founder of Re-genera Medical, a boutique Functional Medicine practice in Los Angeles, California, and the author of When Food Bites Back: Taking Control of Autoimmune Disease. Dr. V began his career as an interventional radiologist, diagnosing and treating complex, late-stage cancers, and other extremely debilitating diseases. Today, he continues in his father’s footsteps–pioneering to find answers to medical conditions that go undiagnosed and untreated. In this episode, we dive into:  -The top ailments where leaky gut is part of the equation (3:15)-The connection between leaky gut and brain health (11:17)-What can create the onset of leaky gut besides food (22:30)-How antibiotics impact the gut (32:34)-How food additives can aggravate leaky gut (41:21)-The top foods that can cause leaky gut (50:05)-Why autoimmune conditions are more common in women (53:33)-At-home tests for leaky gut (1:05:24)-The five most common foods that people will develop antibodies to (1:10:11)-How to heal a leaky gut (1:19:00)For more on Dr. Elroy Vojdani, follow him on Instagram @regeneramedical, Facebook @regeneramedical, Twitter @regeneramedical, YouTube @elroyvojdani, and through his website, regeneramedical.com.

This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Vivobarefoot.Are you a fan of morning routines but have trouble staying consistent with them? If your answer is “YES!” this episode is for you!Here’s the thing about morning routines: how you start your morning often sets the tone for the rest of your day. When we jump straight into our social media feed, the news, or the priorities of others, our day gets hijacked right from the start, leaving us feeling unrooted, ungrounded, scattered, unfocused, and uninspired.Most of us know this to be true, yet so often I hear from my community that the most common reason they can’t stick to a morning routine is that they feel they don’t have enough time.Setting aside just five minutes (yes, five minutes) to nourish your mind and body in the morning is enough to transition into the day feeling calm, relaxed, and ready for whatever comes your way.Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru shares an ultra-easy framework for morning routines that his dear friend, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, created so that anyone can implement it, stick to it, and maybe even look forward to it every morning. Also mentioned in this episode:-Try This: A Five-Minute Morning Routine That Anyone Can Do-Happy Mind, Happy Life: The New Science of Mental Well-Being-Dr. Chatterjee’s morning routineFor more on Dhru Purohit, follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, Facebook @dhruxpurohit, Twitter @dhrupurohit, YouTube @dhrupurohit, and TikTok @dhru.purohit.

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers and InsideTracker.Traditionally, advocates of nutrition for health maintain that with the right diet, medicine isn’t necessary—in other words, food is superior to medicine. Traditional advocates of medicine, by contrast, believe nutrition takes a back seat to medicine, which is all-powerful. A growing body of data says both sides are wrong and that food and medicine can work together harmoniously, each enhancing the value of the other.Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks with Dr. William Li about how food has the ability to combat and prevent things like cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, and illness. They also discuss how certain foods can positively impact the effectiveness of medicine.Dr. Li is a world-renowned physician, scientist, speaker, and author of Eat to Beat Disease—The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself. He is best known for leading the Angiogenesis Foundation. His groundbreaking work has had an impact on more than 70 diseases, including cancer, diabetes, blindness, heart disease, and obesity. His TED Talk, Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?, has garnered more than 11 million views, and he has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, Martha Stewart Live, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and Voice of America.In this episode, we dive into: -Grand slammer foods that light up our five health defense systems (2:48)-Longevity and DNA protection (13:51)-How to slow down the aging process (17:51)-How to maximize the benefits of consuming coffee (21:44)-How food and medicine can work together (27:16)-The key to successful immunotherapy cancer treatment (40:10)-Foods that help our body produce nitric oxide (45:16)-What is causing the most damage to our vascular health (50:26)-The importance of food sequencing (54:11)-The benefits of eating seasonal produce (1:07:50)For more on Dr. William Li, follow him on Instagram @drwilliamli, Facebook @drwilliamli, Twitter @drwilliamli, YouTube @drwilliamli, and through his website, drwilliamli.com.

Didn't want to text you but leaving a comment instead. Enjoyed this content a lot, made a lot of sense, I could relate to it a lot and it helps me look at how I'm doing things, and how I can move myself forward. Being hard on ourselves every day is one area that resonated most, but I can use/work with the other tips also. Thanks!

Thank you so much for most insightful podcast,first time listener to your podcast which was forwarded by a friend. Presentation on science behind the yoga beautiful connections on how The Practice can change your body on a cellular level. As a Yoga teacher and a Family medicine provider i most definitely interweave both. I did my research and I studied ( and continue to study)along with taking a 200hour class. We all start from somewhere the key is to continue to grow while learning. "I can only bring someone as far as I have gone," Love it! Ericajane

I recently asked my Dr to check my hormone levels and, sure enough, everything came back "normal." how does this explain the crazy fatigue I've been experiencing the past year? how do we find drs that specialize in holistic medicine and would health insurance even cover something like that? I have no idea to whom I'm asking these questions, lol, just thinking out loud I suppose.

First episode I'm listening to from this podcast. Diggin' it! But what's up with the interviewer's mic? The echo makes it a bit hard to understand.
