Dr Deepak Ravindran is no stranger to the demands of being a specialist. So, understanding that time is precious and conversations can change lives – this disruptive and upstreamist doctor wants to shake things up!

 

Podcasts are a good solution for swamped professionals to stay up-to-date on industry happenings and even learn a thing or two about shifts in science, ground-breaking procedures and how we can do things differently. In this collection of stories and interviews, we will debunk the medical myths, trigger content that matters and speak to the innovators behind the future of medicine.

Longcovid – How to beat Brain Fog Part 2 with Dr Sabina Brennan

Welcome to the second part of this 2 part episode where I speak to Dr Sabina Brennan. a clinical psychologist, neuroscientist, fellow podcaster and best selling author of the book on how to beat Brain Fog.

As we know, Brain fog and congitive dysfunction is one of the most common sysmptoms noted in Longcovid. Treatments are still emerging and I thought it would be a fascinating and hugely useful to hear from a researcher and scientist and someone with lived exeperience herself on how to overcome brain Fog. Dr. Brennan discusses the reasons for brain fog, the present causes and the treatment option available and why we must pay attention.

In this episode, we delive deeper into how her 4 week program can really help with brain fog reduction in a careful evidence based manner. There are no quick fixes here however Sabina shows that done properly, there can be lasting recovery from something as complex as brain fog.

Longcovid – How to beat Brain Fog Part 1 with Dr Sabina Brennan

It has been a hugely gratifying  and humbling experience to get the chance to set up the Longcovid Service for Berkshire and work with a great team from primary and community care. It has been 7 months now and we are still learning everyday about the condition of Longcovid and how it seems to affeect multiple systems. Right now we continue to  offer them support, a listening ear, appropriate testing and treatments where available in a  trauma informed manner.

In this episode, I speak to Dr Sabina Brennan. a clinical psychologist, neuroscientist, fellow podcaster and best selling author of the book on how to beat Brain Fog. 

As we know, Brain fog and congitive dysfunction is one of the most common sysmptoms noted in Longcovid. Treatments are still emerging and I thought it would be a fascianting and hugely useful idea to hear it from a researcher and scientist and someone with lived exeperience herself on how to overcome this.

This is a cracking epsidoe and in fact I had to break it up into 2 epsidodes.  I hope you enjoy the show.

Pain Speak Special – The Painful Truth with Dr Monty Lyman

Welcome to a Pain Speak Special focussing on a new book on pain “The Painful Truth” by Oxford based junior doctor and academic scholar Dr Monty Lyman released on 15th July. This becomes the 7th book on pain released in the UK in just the 6 months of this year! We’re currently experiencing a Renaissance in pain science and it is great to add Monty’s book to this fantastic list of  resources for our patients and general public and for anyone interested in knowing more about pain science.

In recent years our understanding of pain has altered so radically it’s fair to say that everything we thought we knew about pain is wrong. I made the case in my book as well.  As Dr Monty Lyman reveals, we misunderstand pain – with harmful consequences. This is Dr Monty Lymans second book. His first one ” the Remarkable life of the skin” was shortlisted for the Royal Society Science Book Prize”. He is a remarkable story teller and in this book , The Painful Truth, he explores and presents cutting-edge research, encompassing phantom aches to persistent pain, and interviews survivors of torture as well as those who have never felt pain.
