episode 79: Trupti Gokani, MD on how to calm your brain
by eating & sleeping at the right times
Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old scientific approach to health and wellness. It’s a unique approach that takes a hard look at the root cause of our problems instead of prescribing a pill to chase away pain or discomfort.
I’ve invited Dr. Trupti Gokani, a board-certified neurologist who blends Western medicine and Eastern philosophy, to share practical Ayurvedic tips on how to harmonize with your true nature so you can keep your body and brain healthy and energized to do the work you need to do.
about Dr. Trupti Gokani:
An award-winning, board-certified neurologist, Trupti Gokani, MD has dedicated her life to developing a unique blend of modern medicine and ancient philosophy. By melding these approaches, she’s become a highly sought-after speaker and health coach sharing holistic wellness strategies with larger-than-life media personalities like Dr. Oz, global pharmaceutical giants like Teva, and individuals with a wide range of symptoms, from debilitating migraines to chronic fatigue.
She’s best known by those in Chicago’s North Shore for her revolutionary integrative approach to treating headache pain, and other neuropsychiatric disorders, using a blended East meets West model. The Zira Mind & Body Clinic’s patients, along with her coaching clients, swear by her unique methodology focused on healing the head by identifying the disconnect between the mind and the body. When not in the clinic, Dr. Gokani dedicates her insights to speaking and media engagements aiming to help Americans understand the “purpose” of their pain and how to heal themselves through a deeper appreciation of the mind-body-spirit connection.
Dr. Gokani earned her medical degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she also completed her training in neurology, was Chief Resident, and pursued additional post-doctoral training and certification as a Master Clinical Psychopharmacologist.
