Our Westernized diet and lifestyle work against us at every turn. With record-breaking rates of chronic illness overloading the healthcare system, we need to prioritize health by giving individuals the right tools, resources, and education so they can feel empowered to make healthier choices.
This week on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with his friend Dr. Rupy Aujla to discuss the top underrated and overrated areas of wellness, common roadblocks that get in the way of healthy eating, and why education is crucial to making positive change. They also dive into why a lack of clinical research on diet and lifestyle deters food policy changes and why we need to change our environment to make healthy choices the default option.
