2 Big Ideas to Help You End and Overcome Confusion

Welcome to Big Idea Tuesday!On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru Purohit shares two big ideas to help you end and overcome confusion.There is a difference between confusion and not knowing. Not knowing the answer to a question doesn’t mean you’re confused, it just means you don’t know. Confusion is not knowing, but needing to know. The “needing” changes everything; the needing is where the anxiety and stress comes from.When people say, “I’m so confused, I don’t know what I want,” they are really saying one of two things:1) “I don’t know what I want, but I feel I should know,” or2) “I do know what I want, but I’m afraid of the consequences of my decision.”If you don’t know what you want, take a breath and slow down. The answer always comes if you are willing to be silent enough to hear it, and allow things to unfold. If you do know what you want, but are afraid of the consequences of your decision, address the fear by writing your fears down on paper. For ...

#94: Unlock Your Hormonal Advantage by Harnessing the Power of Your Infradian Rhythm with Alisa Vitti

Women have an important biological rhythm they experience every month that affects productivity, weight, sex drive, energy, and mood. It’s essential to stay aware of, but it has been widely ignored by medical, nutritional, and fitness research. Women often diet, deprive, and cram as much as possible into their day, striving to accomplish impossible to-do lists. I see so many of them scheduling their lives based on a 24-hour time cycle, ignoring the intuitive time their bodies naturally keep: a monthly cycle with four hormonal phases. Understanding these offers some incredible advantages.On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Alisa Vitti, a pioneer of female biohacking, and a women’s hormone and functional nutrition expert. She is the bestselling author of WomanCode, and her new book, In the FLO is already a bestseller. She is the creator of the Cycle Syncing Method— a diet, fitness, and lifestyle program that is based on women’s biological rhythms for optimal health, fitness, and productivity.In this episode, Dhru and Alisa talk about how we are overlooking a second biological rhythm that only women in their reproductive years have called the infradian rhythm. This is just as important for women to take care as their circadian rhythm in their reproductive years, because it affects six key systems of the body. They discuss how mainstream health plans, self-care routines, fitness regimens, and time management schedules, and even the power morning concept are all founded on a system that only optimizes male biology and leaves out the specialized and cyclical needs of women. They also talk about how to work with each phase of your cycle to support your hormones, unlock peak creativity and performance, and avoid burnout.In this episode, we dive into:-Alisa’s origin story and how she healed her PCOS (3:34)-Why women in their reproductive years are left out of clinical research (12:04)-The infradian rhythm and how it affects six key systems of a woman’s body (21:42)-Why intermittent fasting is not optimal for women in their reproductive years (24:34)-Why doing the same workout throughout your cycle negatively impacts your hormones (26:10)-How to biohack your testosterone (29:35)-How a female’s brain changes throughout the month and what it means (33:19)-The Cycle Syncing Method that Alisa created (37:22)-The four phases of a women’s cycle (46:23)-How birth control really impacts your hormones (1:09:22)-Where to learn more about Alisa Vitti (1:18:17)For more on Alisa Vitti, be sure to follow her on Instagram @floliving and @alisa.vitti, on Facebook @floliving, and on Twitter @floliving.

#93: Energy: The Missing Link to Heal Your Body and Mind with Dr. John Amaral

We live in a hyper-connected world, but more people are more disconnected than ever before. Why? It’s easier than ever to get out of sync with the natural rhythms of our energy and spend the majority of life in a fight-or-flight state. It’s partly because of technology and screen time and because of a lack of integrated movement throughout the day. It’s largely because people just don’t know how to connect and find flow—that optimal state of being where we are one with our body and the universe and where we feel and perform at our very best.On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. John Amaral, a chiropractor, author and educator who has worked behind-the-scenes helping A-List celebrities, entrepreneurs, athletes, influencers and thought-leaders elevate their energy so that they feel and perform their best. Dr. Amaral helps his clients self-heal physical injuries, reduce stress, anxiety and depression, and stay in the energetic flow amidst the challenges of...

#91: Fascia: The Hidden Key to Reducing Pain, Releasing Stress, and Changing The Shape of Your Body with Lauren Roxburgh

Chances are your body feels some form of stress every day, whether it's inflammation, bloating, tension, discomfort, anxiety, or pain during sex. We're constantly distracted by ailments we can't quite seem to fix.Body alignment expert Lauren Roxburgh believes that all of these problems can be solved by first unlocking the foundation of your mental and physical health: the pelvic floor. Located at the root of our pelvis, it determines how firm our core is, how we handle stress, and how much energy reaches the rest of our body. Without addressing the health of our pelvic floor, we are all missing out on a powerful key component of our overall physical, emotional, and spiritual health.On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Lauren Roxburgh, an international author, speaker, educator and corporate presenter, frequently dubbed “The Body Whisperer." Lauren is a board certified Structural Integration practitioner with a degree in nutrition and exercise physiology.She is the go-to writer and expert on all things fascia, alignment, and movement medicine, and regularly works with Hollywood's A-List along with some of the greatest athletes and orthopedic surgeons on the planet. Named the "Body Alignment Pro" by Vogue, Lauren has also been listed as one of the 16 Women in Wellness to Watch in 2019 by Chalkboard Magazine. She's also the founder of the Aligned Tribe Community, the virtual Aligned Life Studio and the creator of the signature Aligned Healing Tools.In this episode, Dhru and Lauren talk about how the pain we feel in certain areas of our bodies—for example, our jaw or shoulders—is actually rooted somewhere else in the body like the diaphragm or the pelvic floor. They discuss the common ways our bodies become misaligned and how we can identify these problem areas. They also talk about some indicators that pain is related to emotional stagnation and how that energy connects to our physical experience.In this episode, we dive into:-Why we should reframe the way we view pain in our body (4:09)-What is fascia and why is it important (8:47)-Why TMJ might actually be an issue with your pelvic floor (12:27)-How trauma lives in our connective tissues (16:09)-The 5 power centers in our body and how they affect our energy and all aspects of our life (19:45)-Tools to deal with modern day stress (54:48)-Foods that are beneficial for your fascia (1:03:05)-The root cause of painful sex and what you can do about it (1:06:45)-How to find love and acceptance for our body (1:11:12)-Where to learn more about Lauren Roxburgh (1:14:27)-Lauren’s book recommendations (1:20:47)For more on Lauren Roxburgh, be sure to follow her on Instagram @loroxburgh.

#90: The Science of Movement: How to Use Exercise to Defeat Depression, Anxiety, and Loneliness with Dr. Kelly McGonigal

The most common explanation for why exercise makes us happy is far too simplistic. The psychological effects of movement cannot be reduced to an endorphin rush. Physical activity influences many other brain chemicals, including those that give you energy, alleviate worry, and help you bond with others. It reduces inflammation in the brain, which over time can protect against depression, anxiety, and loneliness. Regular exercise also remodels thephysical structure of your brain to make you more receptive to joy and social connection. These neurological changes rival those observed in the most cutting-edge treatments for both depression and addiction.On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Kelly McGonigal, a health psychologist who specializes in understanding the mind-body connection. She is the bestselling author of The Willpower Instinct and The Upside of Stress. Her latest book, The Joy of Movement, explores why physical exercise is a powerful antidote to th...
