The biggest misconception when it comes to tooth decay is that it’s an infection of harmful bacteria, in large part from eating sugar, but it’s not.

They discuss how tooth decay is a condition we can prevent, and how we have the ability to heal cavities and reverse tooth decay in certain circumstances. They also talk about Dr. Lin’s protocol for reversing tooth decay.In this episode, we dive into:-What contributes to tooth decay (8:07)-The specific nutrients we are missing in our diet that are contributing to tooth decay (16:25)-How to reverse tooth decay (24:30)-The importance of vitamin D for our dental health (27:01)-How gut health impacts oral health (30:40)-Why mouthwash isn’t a good solution for avoiding tooth decay and holistic alternatives (35:35)-The issue with fluoride (38:57)-How mouth breathing leads to tooth decay (42:52)-The connection between Alzheimer’s disease and gum disease (48:03)-Dr. Lin’s protocol for reversing tooth decay (54:03)-Where listeners can learn more about Dr. Steven Lin (1:07:36)For more on Dr. Steven Lin you can follow him on Instagram @DrStevenLin, on Facebook @DrStevenLin, on Twitter @DrStevenLin, and through his website https://www.drstevenlin.com.

#171: All Things Covid: Vitamin D, Masks and More with Chris Kresser

Season 1, Ep. 171
All Things Covid: Vitamin D, Masks and More with Chris KresserAs humans, we often fall into black and white thinking. It can be easy to let the constant waterfall of media information and social snippets wash over us without stopping to think of the full context. In this age of COVID-19, though, it’s more important than ever to pause and look at what the science really has to say.When we slip into confirmation bias and seek out answers that solidify what we already believe, we lose the ability to think critically. Now, more than ever, is the time to change that so we can overcome this pandemic. That’s exactly what Dhru and Chris Kresser talk about on this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast.Chris Kresser is the CEO of Kresser Institute for Functional & Evolutionary Medicine, the co-director of the California Center for Functional Medicine, the creator of ChrisKresser.com, and the New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Cure. He is known for his in-depth research uncovering myths and misconceptions in modern medicine and providing natural health solutions with proven results. Chris was named one of the 100 most influential people in health and fitness by Greatist.com, and his blog is one of the top-ranked natural health websites in the world. He recently launched Kresser Institute, an organization dedicated to reinventing healthcare and reversing chronic disease by training healthcare practitioners in Functional and Evolutionary Medicine.In this episode, Dhru and Chris jump into an open conversation about the most pressing COVID topics and what the latest research is showing. Starting with vitamin D, they look at some dramatic results of several studies, with the takeaway being that a majority of COVID patients have been found to have vitamin D deficiency, and those who are vitamin D deficient have higher inflammatory markers and a higher risk of death. They discuss the science behind mask wearing and why it’s a helpful piece of stopping the spread of coronavirus, but only one piece.They also talk about the latest findings of the vaccine trials and what we know, and don’t know.In this episode, we dive into:-Vitamin D levels among asymptomatic and critically ill COVID-19 patients and the correlation with inflammatory markers (12:56)-Randomized control trial of vitamin D (17:26)-Vitamin D testing and supplement recommendations (32:40)-Why masks are getting so much attention when the data is nuanced (35:28)-The research on COVID-19 and masks (46:06)-COVID-19 vaccine—what we know and what we don’t know (1:08:14)-Concerns around the safety of a vaccine when it’s developed so quickly (1:15:37)-Oxford AstraZeneca phase III vaccine trial and how it differs from Pfizer and Moderna vaccine trials (1:30:42)-Rapid at home COVID testing (1:41:01)-What you can do today to take control of your health (1:49:03)For more on Chris Kresser, be sure to follow him on Instagram @chriskresser, on Facebook @chriskresserlac, on Twitter @chriskresser, on YouTube @chriskresser, and through his website https://chriskresser.com.

The Most Common Underlying Causes of Acne (Minisode #16)

Our skin is a reflection of what’s going on with our health beneath the surface. Acne and other skin problems are signals that something is off in our body. Conventional medicine deals with symptoms, so their solutions for acne include lathering on potions and lotions, popping and pricking pimples, and taking antibiotics or strong liver-damaging medications. There’s got to be another way, right?Fortunately, there is with Functional Medicine, which addresses the problem’s root cause. From this lens, we can understand that numerous factors contribute to acne, including nutrition, stress, toxicity, inflammation and hormonal and gut imbalances. That’s actually good news because it empowers us to make dietary and lifestyle changes that reverse acne and improve our overall health without the adverse side effects of pharmaceuticals and other invasive procedures.In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Robin Berzin about the most common underlying causes of acne, and the connection between gut health and skin issues. We discuss why conventional acne treatments don’t actually work, and often end up doing more harm. We also talk about how the cosmetics we use on our skin can increase inflammation which inturn leads to acne, and the best skincare routine and products for someone suffering with acne.Dr. Robin Berzin is the founder and CEO of Parsley Health. A Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Robin completed medical school at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, and trained in Internal Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. She has also trained in Functional Medicine with the Institute for Functional Medicine, where she is an advisor on digital technology. In 2011 she co-founded the physician communication app Cureatr and subsequently has advised numerous startups in the healthcare space. Robin founded Parsley Health in order to make whole-body, transformative medicine accessible to everyone through better services and smart technology. When she is not at Parsley, you can find her at home in Brooklyn, upstate with her husband, son and two rescue dogs, or at her favorite vinyasa yoga class.Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Robin Berzin here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/DrRobinBerzin/For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

#170: How Out of Control Blood Sugar Can Cause Belly Fat, Brain Fog, and Chronic Disease

Season 1, Ep. 170
Most of us hear the term “metabolic health” and think it only applies to our ability to burn food and manage our weight. And while those are certainly big pieces of metabolic health, it also impacts everything from our cardiovascular health to cognition, mood, infertility, and so much more.That’s because our metabolism is actually our body’s ability to create energy and this happens all over the body. If our energy production in the brain is hindered, we could have memory loss; if it’s not functioning properly in muscle cells, we may see chronic pain—and the list goes on. On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, Dr. Casey Means, sits down with Dhru to explain how we can use continuous blood glucose monitoring to dramatically improve our health in all of these ways and beyond.Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder of metabolic health company Levels, and Associate Editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention. Her mission is to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tech-enabled tools that can inform smart, personalized, and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices.Dr. Means has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur Magazine, The Hill, Metabolism, Endocrine Today, Endocrine Web, Well + Good, and Dr. Michael Greger’s (author of How to Not Die) video series. She is an award-winning biomedical researcher, with past research positions at the NIH, Stanford School of Medicine, and NYU.In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Means dive deep into the concept of continuous blood glucose monitoring, something Dr. Means is pioneering to make more accessible to the masses, and how we can use that data to truly personalize our diet and lifestyle for optimal health. They discuss how our diet and lifestyle have fundamentally changed in a way that greatly impacts how we regulate blood sugar, and how it’s wreaking havoc on our metabolic health. They also talk about how there is no perfect diet for everyone, and even healthy foods like sweet potatoes may cause a blood sugar spike in one person but be fine for someone else. Seeing this information in real-time lets us make better decisions with immediate pay off for how we feel, as well as long-term protection against chronic disease.In this episode, we dive into:-How metabolic health impacts overall health (3:08)-Healthy foods that could be throwing your blood sugar out of control (15:22)-How a continuous glucose monitor can help you personalize your diet and optimize your health (20:07)-Dhru’s experience using a continuous glucose monitor (24:18)-Why continuously spiking your glucose doesn’t allow you to burn fat (27:56)-How to personalize your diet with a continuous glucose monitor (35:58)-Why a high carbohydrate meal in the evening impacts your sleep (41:10)-The keto diet and metabolic flexibility (54:16)-COVID-19 and metabolic disorder (59:54)-How listeners can sign up for Levels (1:08:35)For more on Dr. Casey Means you can follow her on Instagram @drcaseyskitchen and @levels, on Twitter @levels, and through her website https://www.levelshealth.com/.

3 Tips on Supercharging Your Morning Routine (Minisode #15)

How do you start your day? Do you jolt awake at the sound of your alarm, or do you mindfully ease into the morning with a healthy meal, exercise, and setting goals for what you plan to accomplish?Your morning can set the tone for your entire day. It can mean the difference between a productive day or a sluggish one, having a powerful ripple effect on your mood, happiness and focus. If you leave your day to chance, you'll likely get sidetracked by distractions, other people's priorities, and find yourself consumed with stress.In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks Dr. Rangan Chatterjee about the importance of a morning routine, and how it can help you be more productive in every aspect of your life. Dr. Chatterjee also shares the three core elements of his morning routine, which includes mindfulness, movement, and mindset practices.Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is regarded as one of the most influential medical doctors in the UK and hosts the most listened to health podcast in the UK and Europe, Feel Better, Live More. His first three books have all been #1 Sunday Times bestsellers and his latest book, Feel Better in 5, shows people how to transform their health in just 5 minutes. It has been a smash hit in the UK, selling almost 100,000 copies in just 7 months, and has just been published in the United States. Professor BJ Fogg, the world’s leading expert in human behavior, calls this book, “one of the best habit change programs he has seen—deceptively simple but remarkably effective.” Dr. Chatterjee regularly appears on BBC News and Television and has been featured in numerous international publications including The New York Times, Forbes, The Guardian, and Vogue, and his TED talk, How To Make Disease Disappear, has been viewed almost 3 million times.Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Rangan Chatterjee here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/DrRanganChatterjee/For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

#169: The New Science of Why We Get Cancer with Dr. Jason Fung

Season 1, Ep. 169
Our understanding of cancer is slowly undergoing a revolution, allowing for the development of more effective treatments. For the first time ever, the death rate from cancer is showing a steady decline, but the “War on Cancer” has hardly been won.On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks to Dr. Jason Fung, a physician, author, and researcher. His groundbreaking science-based books about diabetes and obesity, The Diabetes Code, The Obesity Code, and The Complete Guide to Fasting have sold over one million copies and challenged the conventional wisdom that diabetics should be treated with insulin. Dr. Fung is also the co-founder of The Fasting Method, a program to help people lose weight and reverse Type 2 Diabetes naturally with fasting. His work on fasting has been cited by CNN, Time, The Atlantic, Forbes, The Toronto Star, and many other media outlets. His latest book, The Cancer Code: A Revolutionary New Understanding of a Medical Mystery, was just released.In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Fung talk about a revolutionary new understanding of cancer—what it is, how it manifests, and why it is so challenging to treat. They discuss the seed and soil analogy of cancer, and how the seed of cancer may exist in all of us, but the power to change the soil is in our hands. They also talk about how hyperinsulinemia may enable the development of cancer, and how we can build a soil that offers cancer a hostile environment as opposed to a fertile one.In this episode, we dive into:-What is cancer (4:09)-Cancer Paradigm 1.0: Excessive Growth of Cells (7:42)-Cancer Paradigm 2.0: Genetic Disease (15:36)-The cost of cancer drugs (28:50)-Cancer Paradigm 3.0: An Evolutionary Process (34:27)-The seed and soil analogy of cancer (53:58)-The biggest drivers of cancer (57:17)-What feeds cancer cells (1:00:45)-How chemotherapy targets cancer cells (1:02:57)-What you can do today to minimize your risk of cancer (1:10:31)-The importance of getting your blood sugar under control (1:14:38)-Where listeners can learn more about Dr. Jason Fung (1:20:26)For more on Dr. Jason Fung you can follow him on Instagram @DrJasonFung, on Twitter @DrJasonFung, and through his website https://thefastingmethod.com/.

#168: How to Get Better at Trusting Your Gut Intuition

Season 1, Ep. 168
Welcome to The Big Idea of the Week!On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru Purohit talks to us about how to trust our gut and get better at listening to our intuition.He shares three big ideas on this topic:(1) Practice listening - our intuition doesn’t just speak to us in life’s big events, it speaks to us in life’s small events too. Listening to our intuition in life’s little moments will help us get better at hearing our intuition in life’s bigger moments.(2) Meditate - meditation is one of the ultimate life hacks. If you find yourself struggling to implement a regular meditation practice, try walking. It gets you into nature, and is great for giving you a change in perspective.(3) Find the fear or allow - when people say, “I’m so confused, I don’t know what I want,” it typically means one of two things: (1) “I don’t know what I want, but I feel I should know,” or (2) “I do know what I want, but I’m afraid of the consequences of my decision.”If you don’t know what you want, breathe and slow down. The answer always comes if you are willing to be silent long enough to hear it, and allow things to unfold. A lot of growth happens when we become comfortable being uncomfortable.If you do know what you want, but are afraid of the consequences of your decision, address the fear. Write your fears down on paper—be clear about them, don’t hide from them. Give a name and a face to the monster that is holding you back. Monsters are never as scary as they seem when we can see what they really look like.Most people who say they are confused actually do know what they want, but for some reason they are scared. Scared of making the wrong choice, scared of losing love, scared of failing. Being scared is a great thing, it shows you that you care. But when we stop because we’re scared, we don’t learn the lesson that we were meant to learn.For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.
