Episode 58

Eat to Beat Illness

With Dr. Rupy Aujla

What you choose to put on your plate is one of the most important health interventions you can make. Food not only affects our likelihood of disease, but it can lengthen our lives, change our mood, and even affect the expression of our DNA. By approaching disease with a holistic perspective, of which food is a vital part, we can tackle the root causes of disease and truly live well.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Rupy Aujla, an NHS medical doctor and founder of The Doctor’s Kitchen, a project to inspire patients about the beauty of food and medicinal effects of eating well. Dr. Rupy is the founder of Culinary Medicine, a nonprofit organization which aims to teach doctors and medical students the foundations of nutrition as well as teaching them how to cook. He is also the author of two bestselling cookbooks The Doctor’s Kitchen and his latest book, Eat to Beat Illness.

In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Rupy talk about how our bodies can better fight off illness through eating well. They discuss how we can eat to reduce the risk of brain disease, cardiovascular problems, inflammation imbalance, poor immunity, and even reduce the chances of cancer. They also talk about how we can heal our bodies through simple lifestyle changes including exercise, stress reduction, sleeping well, and finding purpose in our lives.

I know you’ll love this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast as much as I did.
