Offering new hope to the 36 million Americans suffering from migraines: Dr. Trupti Gokani introduces The Mysterious Mind: How to Use Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science to Heal Your Headaches and Reclaim Your Health.
If you’ve had a headache lately, you’re not alone. An estimated 36 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches. But if misery loves company, what it loves even more is a solution to the suffering. To give the public her unique insights about what causes headache pain and how to prevent and heal it, board-certified neurologist Dr. Trupti Gokani has written a practical book that seeks to crack the code on the mysterious mind and how it’s connected to other systems in the body, like the gut, the adrenals and the liver.
The Mysterious Mind: How to Use Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science to Heal Your Headaches and Reclaim Your Health has been amassing 5-star reviews from headache sufferers and even from fellow neurologists. The book has been called “a must-have … for every migraine sufferer,” “a great resource for natural healing,” and “a roadmap to good health.”
When most people hear the word “disease,” they think of something deadly, uncontrollable and swift ― like cancer. But we're facing an epidemic of “dis-ease” ― of Americans simply feeling unwell and unable to embrace the lives they want to lead. They’re tired, overweight and inflamed. They’re dealing with ongoing digestive issues, they aren't sleeping well, and many are suffering from debilitating headaches.
Dr. Gokani explains: “People say, ‘I just don’t feel healthy.’ They look in the mirror and wonder what happened to the vibrant person they were in their teens, 20s or 30s. They want to get back to that level of health, but they don’t know how.” According to Dr. Gokani, getting back to that “healthy you” requires understanding your natural state. Once you know what a balanced self looks like, you can identify the symptoms of imbalance and make changes to reverse the trajectory of poor health. In ancient Ayurvedic medicine, or Ayurveda (a science that dates back more than 5,000 years), these natural states are called Doshas. We are born with one or more Doshas that dominate our nature. There are three types: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. “Understanding your unique Dosha is the key to your health. Living a life in balance with your Dosha will alleviate many symptoms, such as headaches, mood issues, sleep disturbances, digestive issues and more. It’s really that simple,” says Dr. Gokani.
The Mysterious Mind tackles these questions, and more:
Why do I get HEADACHES and how can I prevent them?
Is it normal to be CONSTIPATED all the time?
Isn't there something I can do to cure my ACHING JOINTS?
Why can't I get my MOODS in balance?
What would it take for me to not feel so STRESSED OUT all the time?
Isn't there something I can do about my INSOMNIA?
Are there certain foods or ways to prepare my foods to help BALANCE my mind and body?
The Mysterious Mind has already begun to change and improve the lives of its readers, who are taking to social media with their stories and are writing book reviews in praise of its impact on their health. Rana Mafee, MD, goes a step further, suggesting that Dr. Gokani’s insights might also change how other physicians treat headache pain, characterizing Dr. Gokani as a professional who has “ingenuity, creativity, bravery, and a pioneering personality to pave the way to changing the culture in the neurology community to bring about more effective treatments.”
The Mysterious Mind is an accessible 178-page book written directly to the average person. It contains relatable stories, quizzes and checklists. The book helps readers interpret lab results that other doctors have called “normal,” and explains which herbals and nutrients are most beneficial for the brain and which medications are preferred (if medications are necessary). Because the book offers recommendations that are mindful of a patient’s Dosha, the approach is personalized enough to avoid “cookie-cutter” treatments, but is broad enough to be meaningful to any reader. Inside the book is a special offer for a free download of Dr. Gokani’s dietary handbook and recipes.
“Everyone deserves a chance to reclaim their life and live pain free. Everyone deserves answers to why they suffer and what they can do about it. Many believe these questions would go unanswered forever. That is simply not the case,” says Dr. Gokani.
The Mysterious Mind is now available in trade paperback and Kindle editions from Amazon, where it was ranked #5 among pain management books. The book was also released last week on iTunes.
