Too many of us are limping through life…either literally, suffering from poor health, or figuratively, suffering from lack of joy and purpose. We are overwhelmed, confused and frustrated with fad diets.  These all-or-nothing rules lead to feelings of failure and misery. Be Your Own Health Hero seeks to remedy these frustrations.

In this new PBS special, Dr. Partha Nandi will show you that living healthy does NOT have to be complicated.  His approach will show you how to live longer, enhance your brain function, boost your energy and feel passionate about your life!  It’s about taking charge of your health.   It’s about making small changes that leads to big rewards.  Five steps are all you need to feel empowered and live a healthier, happier and fulfilled life.

In Be Your Own Health Hero, Dr. Nandi  shares the best practices from his background in Eastern and Western Medicine, and reveals 5 Steps to Becoming Your Own Health Hero for Longevity, Well-being and a Joyful Life.

Raised in India and educated in the U.S. – including his fellowship at the prestigious University of Michigan medical school – Dr. Partha Nandi merges the best of Eastern philosophy and Western medicine into a 5-step formula for overall wellness.  Your “numbers” – weight, BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol – will certainly improve.  But more than that, you’ll find a sense of purpose, awareness, mental well-being, and stress relief; the often neglected areas of health that bring true joy in life.

Dr. Nandi practices gastroenterology, and is the author of several publications in peer reviewed journals. He is a national speaker, educating physicians on various topics within medicine.
