This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Pendulum.Autoimmune diseases are an increasing issue in our country, with over 80 million Americans dealing with some form or another. Type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto’s, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, colitis, and Crohn’s disease are just some of the more than 70 identified forms of autoimmunity that leave people feeling sick, lost, and powerless.  Conventional treatment for autoimmune conditions gives little hope to those who are suffering because conventional medicine treats these diseases as lifelong illnesses that often require medication to manage symptoms. Through the lens of Functional Medicine, though, we’re able to see things differently; we’re able to see there are many underlying factors that contribute to autoimmune disease that can vary from person to person even for the same disease.Food, of course, plays a huge role in how our immune system functions. I’m not talking about “immune-boosting” foods to avoid a cold; I’m talking about the molecular makeup of foods that can exacerbate your condition due to the immune response they elicit. I’m also talking about anti-inflammatory foods that provide the right nutritional ingredients for healing. On today’s mini-episode, Dhru has a fascinating talk with Dr. Elroy Vojdani about leveraging food choices on an extremely personalized level to treat autoimmunity. Dr. Vojdani is the founder of Regenera Medical, a boutique Functional Medicine practice in Los Angeles, California. He has coauthored over 20 articles in the scientific literature and continues to play an integral role in research related to autoimmune, neurodegenerative, and autoinflammatory conditions. He is also the author of When Food Bites Back: Taking Control of Autoimmune Disease.In this episode we dive into: -Why there is an explosion of autoimmune disease-The connection between food and autoimmune diseases-Foods that damage the gut lining-Modern wheat vs. native wheat-The three stages of autoimmunity-How to prevent and treat autoimmune conditions Listen to the full episode here.For more on Dr. Vojdani, visit his website, regeneramedical.com, and get his book, When Food Bites Back, here. This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Pendulum.InsideTracker provides detailed nutrition and lifestyle guidance based on your individual needs.

This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and Cozy Earth.Over 300 million people around the world experience depression. For the last half-century, the dominant explanation for depression has centered on serotonin. The basic idea is that low levels of brain serotonin or serotonin activity lead to symptoms of depression. But in the last several decades, a number of researchers have challenged the idea that serotonin plays a principal role, or even a major role, in depression. So, if it’s not a serotonin issue, what is it?Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru and Dr. Austin Perlmutter talk about why serotonin may not explain depression, but research on other brain pathways may provide answers such as neuroplasticity, our hormones, metabolic health, gut health, and the immune connection to the brain. They also discuss how there is a lot we can do through our lifestyle choices to help prevent and even manage depression.Dr. Perlmutter is a board-certified internal medicine physician and expert on how environmental influences affect our mental and brain health. He is a coauthor of the New York Times and international bestseller Brain Wash, which he wrote with his father Dr. David Perlmutter, and he hosts the Get The STUCK Out podcast. He currently serves as the Senior Director of Science and Clinical Innovation at Big Bold Health, where he is running an IRB-approved pilot trial exploring the effects of polyphenols on epigenetic expression. In this episode, we dive into:  -The top drivers of depression (1:42)-The connection between neuroinflammation and depression (9:30)-How our immune system influences our brain function (11:49)-What governs our brain state and how we make decisions (16:04)-The top causes of inflammation (17:31)-How exposure to particulate matter impacts our brain function (36:21)-The top foods for brain health (44:15) -Why depression is not a serotonin issue (50:37)-Myths about serotonin (56:47) -What you can do to improve your brain health (1:16:22)Also mentioned in this episode: -Dr. Mark Hyman’s Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat Pancake RecipeFor more on Dr. Perlmutter, follow him on Instagram @draustinperlmutter, Facebook @draustinnperlmutter, and through his website austinperlmutter.com. This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and Cozy Earth.ButcherBox has a variety of different boxes, and you can choose your box and frequency.

This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and AquaTru.Root canals have become ubiquitous—almost 60 million are performed each year in the United States. “You need a root canal‟ is now almost as common as hearing “you need a filling.” It is the only treatment protocol available to retain a tooth that is diseased. Yet just how safe are root canals? And what is the science behind there being a nontoxic alternative to tooth extractions?On today’s mini-episode, Dhru and Dr. Rouzita Rashtian dive deep into the topic of root canals. They discuss what a root canal treatment involves, why you might end up needing one, and alternative treatment options. Dr. Rashtian is a biological dentist and surgeon. She practices utilizing modern health as a platform in helping patients understand the relationship between their mouth and overall health.

She uses minimally invasive techniques to preserve healthy tooth structure and incorporates laser technology and ozone therapy. She holds a SMART certification license through the prestigious International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. She is also a member of the Holistic Dental Association and the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists and Biomimetic Dentistry.In this episode we dive into: -What is a root canal?-The four factors to avoid a root canal-Why root canals can be problematic-What you should look out for if you've had a root canal-Options for tooth replacement Listen to the full episode here.For more on Dr. Rashtian, follow her on Instagram @SerenityDentalCenter, Facebook @SerenityDentalCenter, and through her website, serenitydentalcenter.com.This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and AquaTru.InsideTracker provides detailed nutrition and lifestyle guidance based on your individual needs.

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers and WHOOP.Our friendships and relationships are an integral part of who we are and how we evolve. Even though we don’t need each other to survive anymore, we do need each other to thrive. All of the best things in life come from connection, community, and relationships. So how do we make and keep friends in an era of distraction, burnout, and chaos, especially in a society that often prizes romantic love at the expense of other relationships?Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks to Dr. Marisa G. Franco about how friendships are the most influential thing on our health, success, and happiness.

This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and InsideTracker. We often think the mind is a creation of the brain or that the mind and the brain are one and the same. But when the brain is offline for a number of reasons, like illness or injury, the mind can sometimes still be very active.On today’s episode of The Dhru Purohit Podcast, we are re-sharing my interview with Dr. Bruce Greyson about this phenomenon in the context of near-death experiences, or NDEs. Dr. Greyson shares some of the most dramatic first-person accounts of near-death experiences from his book After. We discuss how NDEs reveal a lot about dying and what might come after, but they also reveal just as much about life and living, the value of compassion and our interconnectedness with one another, and what makes life meaningful and fulfilling. We also talk about how NDEs can help transform the fear of dying that pervades our culture.Dr. Greyson is a professor emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the UVA School of Medicine. He was a cofounder and president of the International Association for Near-Death Studies. His award-winning research led him to become a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and to be invited by the Dalai Lama to participate in a dialogue between Western scientists and Buddhist monks in India. His book, After, is the culmination of almost half a century of scientific research.In this episode, we dive into:  -Dr. Greyson’s first experience with a patient who had a near-death experience (8:00)-A near-death experience story from Dr. Greyson’s book (18:57)-What near-death experiences tell us about the mind-body connection (22:34)-The parallels between psychedelic experiences and near-death experiences (32:03)-The misconceptions around near-death experiences (37:56)-How near-death experiences reduce the fear of death (42:05)-How to get the benefits of a near-death experience without actually having one (44:52)-The history of near-death experiences (49:58)-Reincarnation beliefs among near-death experiencers (52:20)-How near-death experiences change people’s lives (1:04:43)For more on Dr. Greyson, follow him on Instagram @BruceGreysonMD, Facebook @BruceGreysonMD, Twitter @BruceGreyson, and through his website, brucegreyson.com.

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/HDL 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.

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.
