This episode is brought to you by Vivobarefoot and AquaTru. Chronic pain impacts millions of people, and yet traditional methods focus solely on pain management, failing to address the root cause of the pain.

This episode is brought to you by Butcher Box and Lifeforce.We know that environmental toxins in our air and water can cause chronic disease. Mold is one of those deadly toxins, and exposure can cause symptoms that can’t be explained by traditional testing or by doctors who are unfamiliar with how symptoms may present themselves. Those suffering exposure can often feel hopeless and unsupported.In addition, there is often no accountability for the experts or individuals who either intentionally or negligently caused the mold exposure. Today’s guest hopes to change that. Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with attorney Kristina Baehr about her family's personal experience with toxic mold and their journey to seek justice for the emotional, medical, and financial damages they suffered. Kristina shared what she learned about their symptoms, how her home had become a toxic bubble, and the lack of accountability on each party involved in the home building and inspection process. Kristina also shares why she started her law firm and made it her mission to help individuals suffering from exposure to environmental toxins, and discusses the facts of the Red Hill case in Hawaii, where military families were exposed to water contaminated with jet fuel.   Kristina Baehr is a national trial lawyer representing sick people against the companies that made them sick. She founded Just Well Law to help clients recover financially to rebuild their health and lives. Kristina is also a former Assistant US Attorney and represented the United States in civil actions, including catastrophic personal injury. In this episode, Dhru and Kristina dive into (audio version / Apple Subscriber version):The epidemic of chronic disease caused by water and mold and the cover-up efforts (3:54 / 3:54) What Kristina and her family learned about mold (6:47 / 6:47) How Kristina’s house became toxic, causing her family symptoms and permanent damage (12:21 / 13:27) Accountability through the legal process (20:44 / 18:20) Status quo, conspiracy, and lack of accountability (22:00 / 19:46) The verdict in Kristina’s family’s case (29:14 / 27:00) The team that helped Kristina discover her diagnosis (42:30 / 40:02)Kristina’s commitment to paying it forward and starting Just Well law (47:40 / 44:44)The symptoms families in Hawaii faced after ingesting jet fuel (51:44 / 48:57)Why the government chose to protect itself rather than protecting military families (54:30 / 51:50)Lack of responsibility and passing the buck in the Red Hill matter (57:44 / 54:53)Kristina’s practice and the types of cases she focuses on (1:04:40 / 1:02:03) For more on Kristina, you can follow her on Instagram @justwelllaw, and through her website https://www.well.law/.Right now, new members of ButcherBox receive New York Strip steaks for a year PLUS $20 off your first order.

I listen to your podcast while I’m preparing meals for my work week and just wanted to let you know how inspiring this podcast and how good it makes me feel about the food I’m making. It makes being questioned by my fast food eating coworkers about what I’m eating worth it.

OMG, hearing Meghan tell her story is so much like mine... I've had a complete 180 in my health and went through similar experiences with doctors. I had to fix myself and I did! Thanks for the great podcast!

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!

Absolutely love this podcast series! I learn so much from different professionals in different areas on my drive to school every single day. Dhru is an exceptional host and conversationalist, keeps you interested throughout the entire interview.
