Hugging, Intimacy, Love   /   Tags:

Hi #GYNEGirls, #Preggos, and #GENTs! It’s me- your FAV OBGYN Dr. Drai. I am STILL in NYC doing media interviews. Dr. Drai is sitting in his hotel room at the vanity reflecting on his life. I wanted to say from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU ALL for supporting me. I am so flattered when I travel to cities and my #GYNEGirls notice me. WOW! Enough about me…This post is going to be short; I’m getting my makeup done. #FaceOnFleek. I need to get into this “Medical T”. Dr. Drai loves to HUG. I know that hugs have a sort of healing power AND that’s why I always hug my patients. Let’s chat about the health benefits of hugging.

1. Hugging lowers your blood pressure.

2. Hugging boosts your oxytocin levels. This “cuddle hormone”  heals feelings of loneliness and isolation.

3. Hugging can increase your serotonin levels. This hormone elevates your mood and makes you feel happy.

4. Hugging relaxes your tense muscles.

5. Hugging lowers your cortisol levels. This hormone causes STRESS.

6. Hugging lowers your heart rate.

Hug the one you LOVE today #GYNEGirls! Gotta go! It’s showtime. Until next time…



Dr. Draion M. Burch, DO (Dr. Drai) – a highly respected, board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist – is a nationally-recognized author, speaker, consultant, and go-to media expert on women’s health and transgender health issues. He travels the country to meet with women one-on-one and in groups to provide and instruct on healthcare. Although Dr. Drai may be requested to spread his medical expertise to all four corners of the U.S., he always makes time to genuinely help those in need. As a pragmatic physician who offers endless charisma, high energy, and a larger-than-life personality, his “bedside manner” makes it obvious why his patients have named Dr. Drai “America’s OBGYN.” Dr. Drai is the founder and chief medical advisor of DrDrai.com, where he discusses actionable ideas and real-world strategies to help women take control of their health. As an openly gay gynecologist he has patients flocking to him and his website for not only his medical expertise, but because of the security they feel in the way he cares for, relates to, and teaches women about subjects ranging from embarrassing vaginal care to serious sexual assault. His mission: Real medical advice, simplified. Dr. Drai takes his unique brand to the camera on his YouTube channel to spill his popular “Medical T” (TIPS) helping his self-titled #Preggos, #GYNEGirls and #GENTs pursue a healthier life. Dr. Drai’s on-point advice on off-the-wall questions about sexual health issues has many calling him a “sexpert.” Dr. Drai earned his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine degree from The Ohio University and completed his internship and residency at Michigan State University.
