    Breaking Free of Our Brain’s Negativity Bias to Create a Better Future with Ari Wallach

    This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers and WHOOP.
    Many of the problems we face today, from climate change to work anxiety, are the result of short-term thinking. We are constantly bombarded by notifications and “breaking news” that overwhelm our central nervous systems, forcing us to react in the moment and ultimately disconnecting us from what truly matters. But there is a solution. 
    Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks to Ari Wallach about how we face challenges that require us to think beyond our individual life spans to the impact we have on future generations. They discuss how we can become the ancestors the future needs through an applied mindset Ari calls Longpath that implements shifts in thinking, decision-making, and behavior that move our society and species toward future-consciousness. 
    Ari Wallach is a futurist and social systems strategist. He is the founder and Executive Director of Longpath Labs, an initiative focused on bringing long-term thinking and coordinated behavior to the individual, organizational, and societal realms in order to ensure humanity flourishes on an ecologically thriving planet Earth for centuries to come. 
    In this episode, we dive into: 
     
    -Why we’re so driven by short-term behavior and thinking (2:05)
    -How short-term thinking gets us into trouble (4:10)
    -What is driving our short-term thinking (7:27)
    -The principles of the Longpath perspective (15:10)
    -How the world is getting better, not worse (20:30)
    -Why we’re hardwired for negativity bias and how to move past it (30:55)
    -Transgenerational empathy (42:19)
    -Why it’s important to start with the past when creating change (54:15)
    -Dhru’s gratitude practice (1:05:46)

    Uncovering The Root Causes of Alzheimer’s and What You Can Do to Prevent It with Dr. Dale Bredesen

    This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Birch Living.
    Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most significant global health threats we face today. It is an ailment that, as our population ages, is forecasted to become a worldwide epidemic. Mainstream medicine would have us believe that it can’t be prevented, is untreatable, and is progressive, with most patients not surviving beyond 3–11 years post-diagnosis. But that is all being challenged by the work of Dr. Dale Bredesen. 
    On today’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Bredesen to discuss his groundbreaking work that can give hope and many more years of a happy, healthy life to millions of people. 
    Dr. Bredesen is internationally recognized as an expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The End of Alzheimer's, The End of Alzheimer's Program, and his latest book, The First Survivors of Alzheimer's: How Patients Recovered Life and Hope in Their Own Words. He has held faculty positions at UC San Francisco, UCLA, and the University of California San Diego. He directed the Program on Aging at the Burnham Institute before coming to the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in 1998 as its founding president and CEO. He is currently a professor at UCLA.
    In this episode we dive into:
     
    -Evidence that early Alzheimer's can be reversed
    -What actually drives neurodegeneration
    -Insults in the brain that contribute to Alzheimer's
    -Red flags to pay attention to when it comes to cognitive decline
    -Cognoscopy test for cognitive decline

    How to Prevent and Treat Autoimmune Conditions Using The Power of Food with Dr. Elroy Vojdani

    How to Prevent and Treat Autoimmune Conditions Using The Power of Food with Dr. Elroy Vojdani

    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
