Professional. Inspirational.
Health Coach.

Trupti Gokani, MD, is an award-winning, board-certified neurologist best known for her innovative and integrative approach to treating headache pain. Her unique melding of modern medicine and ancient wisdom has enabled her to establish a thriving private practice along Chicago’s North Shore, where her patients seek her insights as an Ayurvedic “neurologist coach” (Healthy Head Coach) who heals the head by healing the mind and the body.

Dr. Gokani is a sought-after trainer, speaker and author of the 2015 book The Mysterious Mind: How to Use Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science to Heal Your Headaches and Reclaim Your Health. Dr. Gokani has lectured extensively in the field of neurology and psychiatry, specifically regarding headaches, mood disorders, insomnia, adrenal fatigue, hormonal issues and adult attention deficit disorder (ADD). She has spoken at the American Headache Society, the Midwest Pain Society, the American Academy of Neurology, and the American Psychiatric Society. Her work — on topics ranging from Botox efficacy and safety, to the prevalence of bipolar disorder in cluster headache patients — has been published in such esteemed journals as the American Journal of Pain Management. She has also published articles pertaining to food allergies and headaches, along with the Ayurvedic approach to migraine, in the well-regarded Journal of Headache.

Dr. Gokani’s special interests include Ayurvedic mind-body types, women’s issues and headaches, yoga as a treatment modality, nutrition and pain, adrenal fatigue, stress, the gut-brain connection, insomnia, and emerging, non-traditional approaches to headache management. In support of patients whose health issues can be effectively addressed through the incorporation of high-quality herbs and nutrients in their diets, she developed a line of supplements that provide combinations and concentrations of supportive nutrients not available elsewhere in the market.

When not in the clinic, working one-on-one with patients whose complaints range from debilitating migraines to chronic fatigue, Dr. Gokani dedicates her time and significant insights to helping the wider community understand the “purpose” of their pain and how to heal themselves through a deeper appreciation of the mind-body connection. Dr. Gokani was recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show, is contributing to a health documentary that begins filming this fall, and authored her first book, The Mysterious Mind: How to Use Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science to Heal Your Headaches and Reclaim Your Health.

Dr. Trupti Gokani earned her medical degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she also completed her training in neurology, was Chief Resident, and pursued additional post- doctoral training and certification as a Master Clinical Psychopharmacologist. She has continued to educate herself for the benefit of her patients, gaining experience and credentials in Ayurvedic medicine, clinical psychopharmacology and transcendental meditation. She is certified by the American Board of Neurology & Psychiatry, and is licensed to practice in Illinois and California. Learn more about Dr. Gokani at www.ZiraMindAndBody.com.

If you are suffering with migraines and have not ever gotten relief, see Dr. Gokani. She will find a way to help you after assessing your diet, sleep habits, stress level, meds, vitamin deficiencies, and anything else in her "bag of tricks." She is a brilliant practitioner who has allowed me, and many people I've referred, to live practically migraine free for years. End of story!

Dr. Gokani is one of the most thorough, caring medical professionals I have dealt with in my quest to understand my migraines. She truly seeks to understand the whole person -- mind, body and soul -- and does not prescribe medications needlessly. She is intelligent, thoughtful and funny, and someone who has been a delight to deal with over the last 10 years.

Dr. Gokani is a brilliant and gifted doctor and diagnostician. When my doctor at the time decided to drop all of his patients with stubborn problems, Dr. Gokani volunteered immediately to take me on as a patient. Within weeks, the headaches and migraines I had lived with for years became much better, and I stopped missing work for migraines. By continuing to follow her guidelines, and by continuing to work with her and one of her colleagues, I had my last migraine in August of 2010. I have not had a single one since. She never gave up, and her persistence paid off. I can highly recommend her as one of the best doctors in the U.S. -- military or civilian.
