    Truly Love This Podcast
    I listen to so many health podcasts and I have to say, I am the most impressed with the content on the broken brain podcast. Dhru is an amazing host and always has wonderful guests that are up to date with the current research. I love that this podcast is focused on the brain and goes into both diet, lifestyle and spiritual topics. I also enjoy Dhru’s insightful solo episodes. Bonus, he has a very grounding and calm way of communicating. So all around an absolute, valuable pleasure. Thank you Dhru

    Excellent podcast and host A+

    Please stop w the political scene
    I’ve listened to this podcast for some time and have enjoyed the different guests. I don’t need a lecture from Laurie santos about blm. There is no proof that the Floyd murder was racial. It was police brutality but I’ve yet to see proof that it was racial. More whites are killed at the hands of officers than blacks. More police are killed at the hands of Americans than blacks or whites. Stop with the racial dialogue. How are the poor white appalachian hillbillies faring? This is not always a black and white issue. It has lots to do w ses. No one told 70% of black men and women to raise their children in fatherless homes. Education is key! But who is not for charter schools. Democrats!

    Providing the roadmap to our best selves
    I love and appreciate this podcast so much. If you’re looking for some direction in owning your life in a more empowered and fun way... start here! If you’re hearing that calling but feel stuck and in your own way... start here! There’s just so much useful guidance from Dhru and his extraordinary guests. Dhru is a really wonderful interviewer and asks the important questions that resonate with me and I expect with most people. I always feel so empowered and ready to face my life with more clarity after listening in!
    Too long.

    Favorite podcast!
    Love your show and the focus on neuroplasticity! Would love to hear you interview Becky Curtis from Take Courage Coaching. She was in a rollover years ago and lives with central nerve pain yet started a coaching business for people who live with chronic pain. Very inspiring!
  • AlesitaPoresita
    Top podcast to empower yourself!
    I start my days listening to Dhru and all his unique guests. Empowering, well produced, smart questions, always something new to learn or refresh, he is truly amazing! You can’t miss it!
  • Vintage French
    A worthy investment of my time
    Although absorbing information via hearing is my weakest way of learning, Dhru’s guests and podcast never fail to captivate me (so thanks for helping me build that muscle!). His growth-mindset oriented topics are exactly the content that lights me up. He is a well-prepared interviewer and I also enjoy picking up on the subtext of mutual respect that he has for his guests, and they for him. My only point of frustration: I can’t find the show notes! I use Apple & have looked everywhere that I can think of.

    Incredible Insight and information
    This podcast is so fantastic. Every episode is so good I often listen several times. It is truly knowledge for the mind, body, and soul.
  • sabina rosebud
    Super knowledgeable and helps get thru long drives
    I live in LA and usually have a pretty back work commute and the Broken Brain podcast definitely helps. I’m also pretty into nutrition and eating healthy. I enjoy Dhru’s perspective and temperament and he really does interview some impressive guests!
  • JoshCrist
    Empowering, insightful and actionable! 🔥
    Whether you’re already deep into your journey of authentic health and wellness, or just getting started organizing your life around what matters most - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Dhru does an incredible job leading conversations that cover the entire range of mental, emotional, spiritual and cultural challenges we all face learning to live a life we’re proud of - from leaders who've actually walked the path. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!
  • High Plains Boomer
    Good info but uses f/word
    I sometimes listen with my mom and we both feel uncomfortable. When you first started, it was quite clean. I know you’re edgy and hip, but not everyone is, and you are close to losing some listeners due to the language. Information is superb, changed how I manage my health.
  • tia texada
    Excellent podcast!!!!!
    This podcast is so inspiring and fantastic. The topics are so interesting and i always learn so much and able to apply this knowledge. I have really been inspired Snd its helped me through a lot of decisions and understanding.
  • jenlerma
    This podcast brings so much inspiration, motivation, and a sense of meaning to my life. I started listening in January 2020 and it’s made a positive impact on my life. It’s become a big part of my weekly self-care and significantly upped the quality of my consumption of material- less social media, more meaningful learning. I recommend it to all my friends.

    Dhru- These podcasts are AMAZING! Please don’t stop.. so grateful! You are changing my world and I’m sharing with everyone! Thank you!
  • hate bad language
    Loose the f word
    I love your podcast but it would be much better if you lost rhe vulgar language. It’s offensive.
    Authentic, informative, real.
    When I see a new Broken Brain podcast, it’s the first one I listen too. I finish these podcasts with so many golden nuggets of truth!! I share them all the time because I want others to receive the same value from them that I do! Dhru had a 30 minute call with my college-aged son who resonated with his podcasts. Dhru was so kind, honest, and extremely helpful. And he even sent my son a book!!! Dhru goes above and beyond and we are forever grateful for the wisdom, insight, and value he brings to others. Keep going strong, Dhru!! You’re making a difference in people’s lives.
  • AnneMarieUF
    My favorite podcast
    I follow so many health podcasts but Dhru’s is my favorite by far. He’s such a genuine person, brings on the best guests, and has definitely made a positive impact on my life. Keep doing what you’re doing Dhru! 🙌🏼😊

    Episode 94 - hormones
    I am incredibly interested in this topic for many reasons. I am a 43 year old woman with 3 daughters - 16, 13, & 10. I started my cycles at 10 years old as have my oldest 2 daughters. 5 kids later and a no -hormonal IUD, I still have my cycles but they have started to get closer together, like every 22-24 days start to finish. I have had some success using “seed cycling” to lengthen them back to 26-28 days though not consistently. In this interview, you bring up intermittent fasting and I had a few things to say on this point. First... I hope in the not too distant future, we can have some standardized language around this term. To me, a lot of what people are doing is either meal spacing or time restricted eating not true intermittent fasting. And for me personally as a Muslim woman, this term is very specific: twice weekly (M/Th) fasting from sunrise to sunset on all weeks except the week of your period, so maybe 6 days monthly. I have been doing this 3 years now during which time I have maintained a body weight around 112 (BMI around 19) and not lost my periods. I also consistently eat a lower carb/sugar, medium (healthy) fat diet with plenty of fruits & vegetables. I walk daily, have good energy, & good mental clarity. Why do I bring this up? Because I have only heard one speaker (wish I could remember who) talk about using me starting Muslim women as a cohort to study fasting. I think there’s a lot to study here and this group certainly offers a huge opportunity for those studies.

    Dhru - this recent podcast was such a deep dive into bio hacking hormones. As women and with a young daughter such valuable information to have on hand. She is as powerful as the hormones. It was a fantastic podcast. I am an avid reader / listener. Your podcast is my go to place to select the next read. Thank you - Purnima Hernandez

    Why we are lonely
    This was timely I have recently been doing some healing work to help use my voice more to help strengthen relationships. Dhru does a wonderful job in relaying how to strengthen relationships by creating community. I paused and one or two names came to mind of individuals that I want to connect with and get to know better. Thanks Dhru for the work you do !
  • Clarisse Gomez

    My North Star
    I feel so lucky to have access to such sound and evidence based health information. It’s a part of my health education and often leads to many spin off’s as I start following the guest’s work and/or read their books. Congratulations Dru, you always seem to have great chemistry with the guests, making them feel comfortable and asking the right questions. You’re compassionate and authentic. Just when I think you’re too good to be true, you throw in an f bomb and I’m reminded of how relatable you are. Please keep doing what you’re doing.

    Best if all functional health podcasts
    I am subscribed to several functional health podcasts and this one is the best. There is no ego, no sales pitch and super high quality guests. Thank you!
  • Missy Miss Rae
    Helpful insights, upbeat tone and real
    I stumbled upon this podcast as referred by another. It’s been helpful in teaching me and bringing awareness about my health, brain, body and their integration! Sometimes the length of the podcasts can cause me to pause to see if I’m ready to commit to listening to a long episode, but other than that, all thumbs up!

    Very hopeful. Please send to all branches of our government. MEO’s space

    Fantastic And So Informative
    Love this show Dr P. Thank you for doing what you do! Your episodes are GREAT and they truly move me. Thank you for giving me a place to go and to learn so much from a place I know I can trust. Love your podcasts.
  • AwesomeElaine
    Amazingly useful information in every episode!
    I just finished listening to episode #84 - Dr. Ronish Sinha - and am pretty blown away. He makes linkages between blood labs and precursors to insulin resistance, etc.; focuses on constitutional differences between cultures and how insulin resistance varies accordingly, and so much more - presented in a very understandable and meaningful way. And I completely agree with others' opinions about Dhru's interview style - he is always well-prepared, pulls meaningful details from each person interviewed, isn't focused on hearing himself talk (like many other interviewers!). Even if a speaker or the subject doesn't seem of great interest to me, after I listen, I am amazed at how much I have learned! THANK YOU DHRU!!!
  • Ms B6
    Should have written this a long time ago...
    Dhru’s interviewing skills are incredible. He knows how to open space for his interviewees to be vulnerable. Asking the right questions and not interrupting them. His guests are not only knowledgeable insightful but their tips are easy to integrate into our daily lives. So many nuggets in every show. I listened to episode #86 no less than 10x. No joke! I know it’s going to forever change how I interact with my challenging 8 year-old, this changing our relationship.
  • Therandilynn
    Great education for your commute
    We love this podcast. Dhru is a gifted interviewer! And it’s one of the things about the podcast that makes it so enjoyable and not just informative. He can really connect and pull such intimate details from the background stories that as a listener we also feel connected and part of the conversation. My husband and I listen on road trips in the car. It passes the time wisely. We can learn about different health topics in a short period of time. Dhru always brings the conversation back to the importance of community and family. This also keeps us in check and reminds us not to have fantasies of murdering each other during travel stress! Haha
  • K Kow
    Great podcast !
    Love the content. But microphones need to be turned up while recording. Can be very difficult to hear. Just FYI.

    Open your brain and let these experts share their knowledge. You will learn something that you can apply. Mr. Purohit does an excellent job drawing out useful information from the guest. Keep up the great work! This is consistently the best investment of my time!
  • Everythingpeaceful
    A priceless gift
    Just a huge thank you- I am beyond grateful for your work. This podcast is helping me change the things I learn that I need to change and ALSO helping empower me by confirming the things that I am doing right! Every episode is a priceless gift. You are so amazing at what you do and how you do it. The ripple effect of your work is changing the world by empowering everyone you reach to change the world in their unique way. Keep shining your light, more power to you Dhru!!
  • Xfit mommy
    Real talk!
    I am a weekly listener and enjoy the content. Even the episodes that may not initially pique my interest, generally introduce me to something I have not thought of before. Although I have read some negative comments on the profanity that occasionally shows up. I not only do not mind but find when it is used it in the midst of a conversation and used in a genuine way.

    Dhru and the Broken Brain Podcast
    I LOVE this Podcast! Dhru you are an incredible host, fun to listen to, and ask the most insighful questions as if you are in our heads! I love the ease and fun that you have while interviewing each guest/BFF! Its important information that I drink up and love to share with our own Curry Girls Kitchen community! It completely reinforces that there are so many ways to heal our bodies and not to give up! You, and Dr. Mark Hyman are leading the way sharing the personal stories and knowledge of so many incredible health care professionals! It brings us GREAT HOPE knowing there are answers to so many health mysteries today because of the non-stop perseverance of you and all who you bring onto your show. My heart is so grateful! We are voracious learners and the content on this podcast is not only life changing and stellar, but exemplary! Thank you for everything you are doing! Its making a huge difference in the world of health and wellness!!! With great love! Peggy

    I want to share this except you won’t let me
    I really want to share this information with many people I know, but I belong to a subculture that flinches at foul language. In the circles I visit most, it gives a sense of degrading both the speaker and hearer, and makes the speaker less credible. You might consider thinking about the meaning of your words before you use them. Thank you for sharing the good you have learned, it is making a difference.

    Dr. John Kelly #63 Must listen Addiction research
    If you only listen to one show on Addiction, this is the one. Dr. Kelly reviews research-based information that sets the record straight to guide clinical support and policy reform. This will correct and update your beliefs and ideas on addiction.
  • aewinton
    Subtle, steady, life-changing
    I do not write many reviews, however, I felt compelled to in this case because of the incredible difference this podcast is making in mine and my family’s lives. The content is fascinating and easy to listen to while I cook, walk or drive, and I find that the small and often simple tips (backed by science) and knowledge that I pick up are leading to gradual but very impactful changes in my reading list, daily spiritual practises, habits, sleep, exercise and diet. In short, I love the content and Dhru has come to feel like a trusted friend in my household. It will continue to be my #1, even as I go back and re-listen over and over again. Thanks highly to the team that puts this together and all the educated guests that come on to share their knowledge and experiences!

    So good!
    I am loving this podcast. I am a psychologist and with each episode I am learning more and integrating something new into my practice. The content is both interesting and accessible. I cannot say enough good things about this podcast and how useful it has been to me both personally and professionally.
