    The True Root Cause of Chronic Pain and How To Manage it Using the Latest Science with Dr. Howard Schubiner

    The True Root Cause of Chronic Pain and How To Manage it Using the Latest Science with Dr. Howard Schubiner

    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. Today’s guest is here to share a groundbreaking approach to treating pain, revealing that the brain creates pain as a signal of an underlying emotional issue that needs to be addressed, and treatment can be achieved by rewiring our brains. 
    Today, on The Dhru Purohit Show, Dhru sits down with Dr. Howard Schubiner to discuss why chronic pain is more prevalent and how it is connected to our brains. Dr. Schubiner explains why the current approach to pain management is flawed and why Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy has been clinically proven to be more effective in treating chronic pain compared to traditional forms of treatment. He also explores how adverse childhood experiences can trigger chronic pain later in life and how we can rewire our brains, ultimately changing our response to pain.
    Dr. Howard Schubiner is an internist, pediatrician, and the Mind-Body Medicine Center director at Ascension Providence Hospital in Southfield, Michigan. He is a clinical professor at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and has authored more than 100 publications in scientific journals and books, including three books, Unlearn Your Pain.

    There is so much conflicting and outdated advice on weight loss and calories in and out. Although some of this advice may initially lead to weight loss, it does not always result in long-term weight loss, sustainable habits, and overall health. Today’s guest is here to break down the research, myths, and advice to help us navigate what actually works in the realm of weight loss and what can be disregarded. 
    Today on The Dhru Purohit Show, Dhru sits down with Dr. Morgan Nolte to discuss why weight gain and insulin resistance have become more prevalent and what we can do to change our relationship with insulin and ultimately maintain ideal weight. 
    Dr. Morgan Nolte is a board-certified clinical specialist in geriatric physical therapy. She recognized a need for preventative education and care that focuses on reversing risk factors instead of just treating symptoms. That led her to focus on developing online courses and coaching programs that help adults reverse insulin resistance for long-term weight loss and disease prevention.

Happy of London ,

Thoughtful, kind yet provocative

Wonderful episode with Dr. Alexander Batthyány exploring what for many of us is the ultimate taboo of talking about death, the near dying and how to be graceful when caring for those nearing their passing.

I don’t usually write podcast reviews but the intelligent questions and gentility of the conversation is a compelling listen.

Thank you Dhru and Alexander 🙏
