Hi, I’m Janani Krishnaswami


Hey, I'm Janani! I'm also "Dr. K", a triple-board certified physician (Internal Medicine, Preventive Medicine, and Lifestyle Medicine). Whether I'm working as a physician or coach, my goal is to help inspire every patient to find their own inner potential to heal and feel better, no matter the circumstances. I consider myself to be a rational, scientific, and evidence-first type of person -- but I'm also really familiar with the inexplicable, mammoth proportions of chronic, scary pain, which go far beyond reasoned rationality. I experienced this type of pain in multiple places in my body, on and off, for several years and was convinced it was all due to a nonhealing sports injury in my hamstring and sacroiliac joint... I tried everything, until I finally realized that truly, it was my mind (and not my body) that was the fuel behind the pain fire. Lin helped me put the tools together so that I could finally heal my mind. I'm indebted to my kind, caring coach who saw me through some rough times, and inspired to give back to patients by placing empathy, care, and trust at the center of the relationship.

Get started

My coaching style

I strive to be a partner and a set of “training wheels” on this journey with clients, helping them find footing and regain balance when things seem off-kilter through encouragement and compassion, enough that they can ultimately ride freely on their own. My goal is to reflect back to clients the truth of what they may intrinsically know inside, when the other voices of fear, doubt, and overthinking could be quieted. The universe of “healing” is vast and overwhelming at times, and my hope is to act as a filter that can distill the key practical elements that speak most to the client’s specific needs at that time.

Lin Health has given me my life back.

Lin Health has given me my life back. I struggled with daily chronic treatment resistant migraines and POTS for 8 years. My life was significantly affected as well as my husband's and children's. I started Lin Health and their pain repressing treatment in Jan/Feb and by April I was migraine free and also free from any POTS symptoms. I no longer take any medications for anything. My coach was the perfect match for me, always supporting me and meeting me where I was at.

Lin Health has changed my life!

The concept is solid, and the research is hard to dispute. Believing in the research is the most critical step. My pain has generally improved over 4 months from utterly debilitating to 60-80% better on most days. But it takes unavoidable work to chase your demons and recognize patterns that contribute. The Lin program makes it so easy. The most valuable part is my coach, who really cares and really helps. It is a journey, and we have to grow up and realize real improvement is a journey, and not a quick pill!

Hope again

The access to the care kits and my coach. What I have learned regarding pain and the brains role in it all has been remarkable. I’ve learned through the kits and my coach that a bunch of my pain has been primary brain pain. It’s has given me hope when I was starting to feel really hopeless with it effecting so much of my life. I feel like I am getting my life back again. I would recommend this program to anyone that deals with pain.

Lin Health has changed my life.

My experience with Lin Health has been amazing. I truly have nothing to say for changes or improvements. The information and tools acquired through Lin Health has changed my life, and in more ways than just pain management/resolution. I have and will continue to recommend Lin Health for anyone who is looking to receive help with pain relief. But I honestly think the tools given here can impact people with other debilitating issues such as anxiety, depression, etc.

Fibromyalgia had overtaken my life

Fibromyalgia had overtaken my life. Having tried numerous things over the past 5 years and only getting worse, I was skeptical and nervous from the start. Upon meeting Lauren, my skepticism and nervousness dissipated. Lauren’s genuine sincerity and calming presence enabled me to trust and learn the process. I am more active, much happier, and off pain meds. I am able to live my life again! I gladly recommend Lauren and Lin Health to others.

Amazing program for chronic pain

Amazing program for chronic pain. They pull all the different modalities together to treat chronic pain, and the care kits in the app are simply amazing! Thorough, logical, professional, and excellently presented. My pain recovery coach is wonderful and his program is worth every penny!

I’ve tried other apps/books/programs to…

I’ve tried other apps/books/programs to work on mind-body pain, but I think Lin may be the best. The program is well thought-out, with nuances for using the tools effectiveIy I haven’t seen before, as well as techniques that were new to me. And while the program is detailed, the instructions contain ideas and exercises that are practical and not as theoretical as others I’ve seen. And the coaching has been insightful and invaluable in ensuring I’m moving in the right direction.

Life Saving!!

Lin has made a HUGE and dramatic impact on my life. I went from being in chronic, severe pain to almost no pain. We’ve been able to learn a lot of root causes for why the pain flares as well, and it’s helped me significantly. I’m incredibly grateful for my coach especially. I most definitely would not have made such fast progress if it wasn’t for her helping me see things I would’ve missed on my own. I’ve been recommending it to a lot of my friends/family who are in pain and they are in awe of what a transformation I’ve had from it.

Injured in 2013

Injured in 2013; I suffered chronic back pain for a decade. The Lin Health approach surpasses other treatments I've tried to relieve pain. Lin Health has changed my relationship with pain so that I'm more mobile and healthy. Totally endorsed.
