How to Let Go of Self-Criticism | This episode is brought to you by BLUblox and InsideTracker.It’s often easier to show kindness and compassion to a friend or loved one than it is to ourselves. Many of us grow up thinking that being hard on ourselves is the way to success—but an inner voice wired for self-criticism actually holds us back from living fulfilled and joyful lives. In this week’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Andrea Pennington and Dr. Kristin Neff to talk about where self-criticism comes from and the biggest hurdles that stop people from loving themselves Dr. Andrea Pennington is an integrative physician, acupuncturist, meditation teacher, #1 international bestselling author, and TEDx speaker. With her extensive medical expertise and training in trauma recovery combined with her experience in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, Dr. Pennington helps people build resilience, reclaim vitality, and thrive despite the inevitable trauma and drama life brings. Dr. Kristin Neff is an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, and a pioneer in the field of self-compassion research. In addition to writing numerous academic articles and book chapters on the topic, she is author of the book Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself. Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Andrea Pennington here: https://lnk.to/DrAndreaPennington/ Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Kristin Neff here: https://lnk.to/KristinNeff/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

Our calling in life might end up being completely different than what we expected—it might even challenge our previous beliefs.  The concept of reincarnation elicits skepticism in many people.

Most of us try to ignore tough feelings, by pushing them deep down inside or looking for a distraction that makes us feel temporarily better. When we disconnect from these feelings, we move away from confidence, health, and our desired pursuits, ultimately undermining our ability to fully realize our ambitions.On this week’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Joan Rosenberg, a cutting-edge psychologist, innovative thinker, and trainer. She is a two-time TEDx speaker, and the bestselling author of 90 Seconds to a Life you Love: How to Master Your Difficult Feelings to Cultivate Lasting Confidence, Resilience and Authenticity. Dr. Rosenberg shares the eight most influential feelings that people need to work through if they want to find success. All of them are common, everyday reactions to things not turning out the way we want. Our desire to avoid these feelings leads to unresolved issues; Dr. Rosenberg explains why that is so dangerous and how even just 90 seconds of sitting in discomfort can entirely change our capacity to cope. Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Joan Rosenberg here: https://lnk.to/DrJoanRosenberg/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

Did you know that 76% of deathbed regrets come down to one thing: living life according to someone else’s vision. We’re often pressured to pursue dreams that aren’t actually ours. The expectation to become a lawyer, doctor, to follow in the family’s business—or a number of other things—can take us on a path purely focused on making other people happier than ourselves. In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Ben Nemtin and Chase Jarvis about how to live a life without regrets, and how we can design our lives to fulfill our own dreams through the power of creativity, without getting stuck in the rut of only pleasing the people we love. Ben Nemtin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? and a star of MTV’s highest rated show ever on iTunes and Amazon called The Buried Life. As the co-founder of The Buried Life movement, Ben’s message of radical possibility has been featured on The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, FOX, and NBC News. President Obama called Ben and The Buried Life “inspiration for a new generation” and Oprah declared their mission “truly inspiring.”  Chase Jarvis is an award-winning artist, entrepreneur, and one of the most influential photographers of the past decade. He has created campaigns for Apple, Nike, Red Bull and others, was a contributor to the Pulitzer-winning New York Times story Snowfall, and earned an Emmy nomination for his documentary Portrait of a City. He also created Best Camera–the first photo app to share images to social networks, and is the Founder of CreativeLive, where more than 10 million students learn photography, video, design, music, and business from the world’s top creators and entrepreneurs.  Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Ben Nemtin here: https://lnk.to/BenNemtin/ Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Chase Jarvis here: https://lnk.to/ChaseJarvis/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

If you’re looking for a way to explore the concept of meaning, how it relates to culture, religion, politics, history, sexuality, dissatisfaction, and so much more, this podcast is for you.  We’re currently experiencing a crisis of meaning. People and groups are divided, each convinced their way of thinking and their beliefs are the “right” ones. We have a hard time letting multiple things be true at the same time, when in reality they are but all of our realities are different. We get weighed down by the complexities of information overload and experience grief in the process. Since most of us run from bad feelings or simply don’t know how to address them, we go into denial and look for an escape. We end up with more anxiety, more depression, and poorer relationships.  But this isn’t an unstoppable progression. Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks to Jamie Wheal about why it’s so hard to make sense of the world right now and what we can do to help ourselves expand our understanding. They discuss the five key drivers that give us the tools to wake up, grow up, and show up for ourselves. They also talk about how we move from broken to whole, and how we cure isolation with connection. Jamie is the author of the global bestseller and Pulitzer Prize-nominated Stealing Fire: How Silicon Valley, Navy SEALs and Maverick Scientists are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work. Jamie is an expert in peak performance and leadership, specializing in neuroanthropology––the intersection of culture, biology, and psychology—and the founder of the Flow Genome Project, an international organization dedicated to the research and training of ultimate human performance.  In this episode, we dive into: -Why we are in a crisis of meaning (3:12)-The current culture wars (34:35) -The apocalypse we find ourselves in (1:03:30) -The three things that help us deal with life better (1:06:20)-How to be inclusive (1:08:59)-Alchemy and personal transformation (1:36:44)-Why sexuality can be a powerful gateway into higher consciousness (1:37:43)-Orgasms as a treatment for depression (2:00:51) -How music connects us (2:19:52)-How to get out of our own way and create greater connection (2:54:30)Also mentioned in this episode:-The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk - https://www.amazon.com/Body-Keeps-Score-Healing-Trauma/dp/0143127748-Love Drugs: The Chemical Future of Relationships by Brian Earp and Julian Savulescu  - https://www.amazon.com/Love-Drugs-Chemical-Future-Relationships/dp/0804798192-This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession by Daniel Levitin - https://www.amazon.com/This-Your-Brain-Music-Obsession/dp/0452288525For more on Jamie Wheal you can follow him on Instagram @flowgenome, on Facebook @jamiewhealpage, on Twitter @flowgenome, and through his website https://www.flowgenomeproject.com/.

It’s part of the human condition to run away from pain. Most of us have habits that we acquired as a way to cope with painful childhood experiences or traumas, which unfortunately don’t serve us as adults. These habits can manifest as addiction in a wide variety of forms, from substance abuse to overworking. In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Omid Naim and Dr. Gabor Maté about why society is so sick, and what is contributing to the epidemic of mental health disorders and chronic health conditions.  Dr. Omid Naim is the founder of Hope Integrative Psychiatry, a multi-modal approach for whole person transformation and healing. He also founded the non-profit, La Maida Project, which designs new models for families, communities, and organizations to become ecosystems of optimal health and well-being based on our innate human nature.  Dr. Gabor Maté is a retired physician who, after 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience, worked for over a decade in Vancouver’s Downtown EastSide with patients challenged by drug addiction and mental illness. Dr. Maté is the bestselling author of four books published in twenty-five languages, and is an internationally renowned speaker highly sought after for his expertise on addiction, trauma, childhood development, and the relationship of stress and illness.  Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Omid Naim here: https://lnk.to/DrOmidNaim2/ Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Gabor Maté here: https://lnk.to/DrGaborMate/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

If we want to continue learning how to optimize health, we have to stay open to new information that might contradict previous research, even if it questions the status quo. Fluoride and dental health are great examples of this process. Fluoride gained support due to an observation one man made many years ago, which has progressed into many cities fluoridating their water and most dentists singing its praises. But over the years the research on fluoride has greatly evolved, to the point that we can now see large differences in how it works topically versus internally, and identify risks that come with consumption. Today’s guest on The Dhru Purohit Podcast spent much of his time as a new dentist and new parent grappling with whether it was a good idea to give fluoride to his kids. Dr. Mark Burhenne is a functional dentist, and  the author of the #1 Amazon bestseller The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox. He has appeared in Dr. Hyman's Sleep Masterclass, the oral microbiome docuseries Gateway to Health, NPR, and many more. Dhru and Dr. Burhenne talk about the emerging research that supports connections between fluoride and IQ changes, neurotoxicity, arthritis, osteosarcomas, and changes in metabolism, among other concerns. Dr. Burhenne explains how fluoride works in the body, and why using it topically is very different than consuming it. They also talk about the root cause of cavities—it’s not a deficiency in fluoride, but the sugary and starchy foods making up the Standard American Diet, an altered oral microbiome, and mouth breathing.In this episode, we dive into: -What made Dr. Burhenne first question fluoride (3:24) -Why fluoride is added to our water (8:52) -Conventional dentistry and fluoride use (14:22) -Studies that show why we need to rethink adding fluoride to our water (21:47) -The EPA Federal lawsuit that could limit fluoride in drinking water (24:25) -The effects of fluoride on the brain (31:42) -How we get fluoride in water (35:29) -Why fluoride in toothpaste doesn’t really work (37:59) -How to choose a water filter (50:18) -Dr. Burhenne’s toothpaste recommendations (56:36) -What actually creates cavities and healthy teeth (1:05:02) -What we can learn from modern hunter-gatherers when it comes to dental health (1:11:22) Also mentioned in this episode:-The EPA Federal lawsuit that could limit fluoride in drinking water - https://www.ewg.org/news-insights/news/federal-lawsuit-could-limit-fluoride-drinking-water-Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6-12 Years of Age in Mexico - https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/28937959/-The Association Between Maternal Fluoride Exposure During Pregnancy and IQ Scores in Offspring in Canada - https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapediatrics/fullarticle/2748634-Fluoride Action Network - http://fluoridealert.org/-ZeroWater Filter - https://zerowater.com/-RiseWell Toothpaste - https://risewell.com/-Boka Oral Care - https://www.boka.com/-The Secret to Better Sleep?

Eighty thousand toxic chemicals have been released into our environment since the dawn of the industrial revolution, yet very few have been tested for their long-term impact on human health.  From the polluted air we breathe, to the food additives we consume, untested skin products that we lather on, and vast chemical soups that bombard us daily, most people agree that our environment is making us sick.In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Aly Cohen and Carey Gillam about the effects of environmental toxins on the brain and other organ systems; the health hazards of glyphosate, one of the most widely used herbicides; and practical strategies for keeping toxins out of our homes. Dr. Aly Cohen is a rheumatologist, integrative medicine specialist, and environmental health expert. She is also the author of Integrative Environmental Medicine, and Non-Toxic: A Guide to Living Healthy in a Chemical World.Carey Gillam is a veteran investigative journalist with more than 25 years of experience. She currently works as a Research Director for the non-profit US Right to Know, and as a columnist for The Guardian. She is the author of Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer and the Corruption of Science, and her recently published book, The Monsanto Papers: Deadly Secrets, Corporate Corruption, and One Man’s Search for Justice. Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Aly Cohen here: https://lnk.to/DrAlyCohen/ Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Carey Gillam here: https://lnk.to/CareyGillam/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

Our culture puts a lot of emphasis on blame when it comes to being overweight. People are villainized for being lazy or unaware of the “right” way. But there is no one right way to lose weight, and when we take steps to improve our overall wellness, weight loss comes as an added bonus. Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks to our good friend Dr. Rangan Chatterjee about creating a customized weight loss plan and digging into the real reasons we struggle with weight (hint: it’s not a lack of willpower). Dr. Chatterjee is regarded as one of the most influential medical doctors in the UK and wantsto change how medicine will be practiced for years to come.

Each of Dr. Chatterjee’s four books have been Sunday Times bestsellers including his latest, Feel Great, Lose Weight, which was just published in the US and Canada.In this episode, we dive into: -Getting off the blame game when it comes to weight loss (4:32) -Why what you eat might not be the most important thing when it comes to weight loss (24:14)-Eating behavior and stress response (29:44)-The connection between trauma and obesity (31:24)-Why we continue to eat foods that we know are sabotaging our efforts, despite our best intentions (38:06) -The Freedom Exercise to overcome cravings (43:26) -Foods that are hijacking our ability to make good decisions (49:21)-Why weight loss is not about willpower (52:51)-How food is engineered to be addictive (55:51) -How sleep impacts our eating habits (1:00:33) For more on Dr. Chatterjee you can follow him on Instagram @drchatterjee, on Facebook @drchatterjee, on Twitter @drchatterjeeuk, on YouTube @drranganchatterjee, and through his website https://drchatterjee.com/.

It can be all too easy to take the body for granted, especially those functions that we don’t absolutely have to think about in order to survive. Breathing is one of those things, but it deserves more attention than most of us give it. In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with James Nestor and Dr. Louis Ignarro about the forgotten power of breathing, why breath is the anchor for all systems in the body, and how we can tap into it to dramatically improve how we feel.James Nestor is an author and journalist who has written for Scientific American, Outside, The New York Times, and more. His latest book, Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, explores how the human species has lost the ability to breathe properly—and how to get it back. Dr. Louis Ignarro is a medical research scientist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his breakthrough discovery of nitric oxide, and how it positively impacts health and longevity. Nitric oxide is currently being utilized all over by hospitals and universities as possible treatment for COVID-19. Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with James Nestor here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/JamesNestor/ Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Louis Ignarro here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/DrLouisIgnarro/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

Does it feel like your life is too busy, your days are too short, and you're feeling overworked, overstressed, and overtired? Chances are you’ve asked your doctor for help, only to be told that it’s because of your age, or your workload, or, worse, that it’s just “normal.” If so, you’re not alone. Women in particular are suffering from an epidemic of fatigue and burnout. So many women feel alone in their inability to manage all of their personal and professional demands. Many assume their fatigue is just a normal and inevitable part of life, but it’s not normal at all. On today’s episode of The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru speaks with Dr. Amy Shah, a double board-certified medical doctor and wellness expert specializing in allergy, immunology, hormones, and gut health.

She lives in Phoenix, AZ, loves being active and is married with two children. Her first book, I'm So Effing Tired was just released.In this episode, we dive into: -The car accident that changed Dr. Shah’s life (8:40)-The army inside our body and the role nutrition plays when it comes to burnout (18:59) -Fasting with our circadian rhythm (28:42) -The importance of getting sunlight first thing in the morning (33:03) -The most important change Dr. Shah made in her diet (35:31)-The 4S’s for creating healthy meals (43:11) -How to optimize our biological rhythms (54:48) -How to create a morning and evening routine to sync with our circadian rhythm (1:02:30) -Setting boundaries and not feeling guilty about it (1:16:19)-Why fasting is different for women and the right way to do it (1:27:18)For more on Dr. Shah you can follow her on Instagram @FastingMD, on Facebook @AmyShahMD, on Twitter @AmyShahMD, and through her website https://amymdwellness.com/.

Today’s fast-paced world has disrupted the circadian rhythm of millions resulting in poor immune health, increased risk for type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, cancer, obesity, depression, and so much more.On today’s episode of The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru shares his personal step-by-step sleep protocol that has helped him transform his sleep. In this episode we dive into:-Mindset and setting an intention for sleep before your day even begins (6:02)-Getting sunlight early in the morning (7:08)-The biggest disruptors when it comes to getting quality sleep (9:38)-Creating an evening routine and wind down ritual (26:19)-Supplements to support sleep (31:23)-Splurge items for sleep (42:10) Also mentioned in this episode:-Dr. Mark Hyman’s Sleep Masterclass - https://courses.drhyman.com/sleep-course-own-Oura Ring - https://ouraring.com/-Broken Brain Podcast Episode #194: Could This Simple Hack Reduce Anxiety and Panic Attacks?

At one point or another, most of us have felt broken. We may feel like there is just something inherently wrong with us, that being different is bad, or that we’re not understood or fully seen by our families. Though it may be hard to believe, we’re not broken, wrong, or bad. We’re us! And this is part of being human. These thoughts and feelings stem from so many places, especially childhood experiences and family dynamics. Today on The Broken Brain Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. Nicole LePera to explore what it means to cultivate self-compassion, access consciousness, and define boundaries so we can feel safe in our own emotions. Dr. LePera was trained in clinical psychology at Cornell University and the New School for Social Research. She also studied at the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis. As a clinical psychologist in private practice, Dr. LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy. Wanting more for her patients—and for herself—she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical, and spiritual health that equips people with the tools necessary to heal themselves. She is the creator of the #SelfHealers movement where people from around the world are joining together in community to take healing into their own hands. Her first book, How to Do the Work, was just released.In this episode, we dive into: -Dr. LePera’s personal experience with anxiety and childhood trauma (6:15) -Dr. LePera’s "dark night of the soul moment” (10:24) -How holistic psychology is different from traditional psychology (13:23)-How a lack of recognition of our past can create dysregulation (16:37)-Why our past has a strong grip on us (18:10) -Understanding that physical and psychological symptoms are messages, not lifelong diagnoses that can only be managed (19:26) -The importance of cultivating self-compassion for ourselves (27:31)-What consciousness means and how to access it (30:16) -How to heal your inner child through reparenting (42:53) -How to set boundaries (47:37) For more on Dr. LePera you can follow her on Instagram @The.Holistic.Psychologist, on Facebook @The.Holistic.Psychologist, on YouTube @TheHolisticPsychologist, and through her website https://yourholisticpsychologist.com/.

What you choose to put on your plate is one of the most important health interventions you can make. Food not only affects our likelihood of disease, but it can lengthen our lives, change our mood, and even affect the expression of our DNA. By approaching disease with a holistic perspective, of which food is a vital part, we can tackle the root causes of disease and truly live well.In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dale Pinnock, Josh Gitalis, and Dr. Rupy Aujla about why eating healthy can be so confusing, how to separate studies from fact and fiction, and practical tips for eating your way to better health. Dale Pinnock is a celebrity nutritionist and chef. He has an undergraduate degree in Human Nutrition, a Postgraduate Degree in Nutritional Medicine, and a lifetime in the kitchen. He is the bestselling author of 14 books, a regular face on UK Television, and he co-hosts the hit show, Eat Shop Save on ITV. Josh Gitalis is a Clinical Nutritionist and Functional Medicine Practitioner, and runs a Toronto-based private practice, with a worldwide client base. He is a recognized expert in integrative healthcare, merging the best of Functional Medicine and integrative therapeutics. As a leader in his field, Josh has taught Clinical Nutrition for several natural health colleges and runs the Functional Nutrition Certification Program. He is the first Canadian nutritionist to become an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner. Dr. Rupy Aujla is an NHS medical doctor and founder of The Doctor’s Kitchen, a project to inspire patients about the beauty of food and medicinal effects of eating well. Dr. Rupy is the founder of Culinary Medicine, a nonprofit organization which aims to teach doctors and medical students the foundations of nutrition, as well as teaching them how to cook. He is also the author of two bestselling cookbooks The Doctor’s Kitchen and his latest book, Eat to Beat Illness. Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dale Pinnock here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/DalePinnock/ Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Josh Gitalis here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/JoshGitalis/ Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Rupy Aujla here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/DrRupyAujla2/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

Depression and anxiety disorders are rising, affecting more than fifty-eight million people in the United States alone. Many rely on therapy and medications to alleviate symptoms but often this is not enough. The latest scientific advances in neuroscience and nutrition, along with our understanding of the mind-gut connection, have proven that how and what we eat greatly affects how we feel physically, cognitively, and emotionally. On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks to Dr. Drew Ramsey, a psychiatrist, author, farmer, and founder of the Brain Food Clinic in New York City, offering treatment and consultation for depression, anxiety and emotional wellness concerns. He is the author of three books, most recently the award-winning cookbook Eat Complete: The 21 Nutrients that Fuel Brain Power, Boost Weight Loss and Transform Your Health. He lives with his wife and two children in New York City and on their 127-acre organic farm in rural Indiana.  Dhru and Dr. Ramsey dive into the twelve most important nutrients for brain health and some of the most insightful studies to back them up. We often hear about omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D for mood imbalances, so you may be surprised to learn that iron, zinc, choline, and vitamin A are a few others that are crucial. Dr. Ramsey explains the mechanisms behind these essential nutrients and which foods we can find them in. In this episode, we dive into:-Dr. Ramsey’s struggle with anxiety and depression (2:29)-Why iron is important for brain health (13:51) -The importance of omega-3 fats for brain health and tips for incorporating more seafood into your diet (18:07) -Antidepressant Food Scale (AFS) (25:21)-The top food categories to beat depression and anxiety (29:15)-Kale controversy (35:22)-The importance of having variety in your diet (43:54)-The connection between metabolic health and mental health (48:39)-The benefits of choline and vitamin A for brain health (51:05) -How COVID has exacerbated the climbing rates of anxiety and depression (58:50) For more on Dr. Ramsey you can follow him on Instagram @drewramseymd, on Facebook @drewramseymd, on Twitter @drewramseymd, and through his website drewramseymd.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!

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.
