In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Omid Naim and Dr...

episode 205: #205: We Got it Wrong When it Comes to Weight Loss with Dr. Rangan Chatterjee

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...



How to Use Your Breath To Heal Your Body and Mind (Minisode #30)

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...



episode 204: #204: How to Get Your Energy Back TODAY with Dr. Amy Shah

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...

episode 202: #202: Setting Boundaries for Better Brain and Emotional Health with Dr. Nicole LePera

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...
