Understanding Autoimmunity!

Samantha Ruth Prabhu is an Indian actress who works primarily in Telugu and Tamil films. She is widely known for her outstanding performances in movies such as Naan Ee, Theri, Yashodha, and many more. The actress shared about her struggle with Myositis, an autoimmune condition, on her official Instagram page in October 2022, along with a thank-you note for the positive reviews for her film, Yashoda. In July 2023, she also announced that she would take a break from her film career after finishing her parts in Kushi and Citadale, to focus on her health. She had traveled to the US, for her Myotisis treatment and around the world during her break. Samantha, along with her friend Alkesh Shartori, has taken up this initiative to curate wellness content that one can easily relate to and apply in their daily lives. Samantha claims that this podcast is a high-quality source of information since it has been curated after two years of in-depth research and personal experiences of Samantha and Alkesh. She feels that there is a vast amount of wellness-related information that she wishes she had known about before, and hence, she wants to make it accessible to everyone. Through her podcast, Samantha wants to make sure that everyone has easy access to wellness-related information.


The first episode of the podcast was released on 19th February 2024, where Samantha along with her friend Alkesh educates the viewers on what autoimmunity is and why autoimmune cases are increasing surprisingly. An autoimmune condition is when our immune system can’t differentiate normal cells from foreign cells and mistakenly attacks normal cells causing problems. Samantha is surprised by the number of autoimmune cases that has been surprisingly increasing to which Alkesh explains the reason behind it, Stress, Bad Eating Habits, and Overemphasis on Work or Career could be the major reasons for the rise in autoimmune conditions. Furthermore, Samantha and Alkesh discuss the toxic input and detox output, how can one prevent too much toxic input, and how proper sleep helps in body detox. Apart from this, Samantha shares the hurdles she faced trying to fight through this condition. Alkesh then gives the viewers 3 takeaways to prevent Autoimmunity, which include, Eating a Clean Diet, that is, minimally processed food, drinking filtered water (add a pinch of Himalayan pink salt on your drinking water), Use Clean Personal Care Products, one’s deodorants, makeup production which contains clean ingredients, de-stress yourself now and then, and move more frequently, don’t be stagnant. 

She was last seen in the movie Kushi (2023), where she played a pivotal role alongside famous actor Vijay Devarakonda.

Samantha then went on to finish her parts in the highly anticipated TV series, Citadel, where she played the role of Nadia Sinh’s (Priyanka Chopra) mother and decided to take a break from the film industry, Samantha is now back in the industry and hosts a health podcast named Take20.
