More About A Mind of Your Own by M.d. Kelly Brogan; Kristin Loberg
 
 
 
Overview

Depression is not a disease. It is a symptom.

Recent years have seen a shocking increase in antidepressant use the world over, with one in four women starting their day with medication. These drugs have steadily become the panacea for everything from grief, irritability, and panic attacks to insomnia, PMS, and stress. But the truth is, what women really need can t be found at a pharmacy.

According to Dr. Kelly Brogan, antidepressants not only overpromise and underdeliver, but their use may permanently disable the body s self-healing potential. We need a new paradigm: the best way to heal the mind is to heal the whole body.

In this groundbreaking, science-based, and holistic approach, Dr. Brogan shatters the mythology conventional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression. Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings as well as years of experience from her clinical practice, Dr. Brogan illuminates the true cause of depression: it is not simply a chemical imbalance, but a lifestyle crisis that demands a reset. It is a signal that the interconnected systems in the body are out of balance from blood sugar to gut health to thyroid function and inflammation is at the root.

A Mind of Your Own offers an achievable, step-by-step, thirty-day action plan including powerful dietary interventions, targeted nutrient support, detoxification, sleep, and stress-reframing techniques that women can use to heal their bodies, alleviate inflammation, and feel like themselves again without a single prescription.

Bold, brave, and revolutionary, A Mind of Your Own takes readers on a journey of self-empowerment for radical transformation that goes far beyond symptom relief.

Advance Praise for A Mind of Your Own

A Mind of Your Own is must reading for everyone in this culture who has bought into the idea that drugs are the best answer to anxiety and depression. With the research to prove it, Dr. Kelly Brogan lays out a path to help you reclaim your mind and your brain health. Christiane Northrup, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Women s Bodies, Women s Wisdom and Goddesses Never Age

A Mind of Your Own leverages the most forward-minded clinical research combined with a healthy dose of compassionate holism to bring forth a revolution in treating mood disorders. Dr. Brogan s program is a soundly welcomed bright light in a world otherwise focused solely on pharmaceuticals. David Perlmutter, MD, board-certified neurologist; fellow, American College of Nutrition; and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain, and Brain Maker

Bold, brilliant, and brimming with practical ideas and tools to end depression and anxiety without drugs, A Mind of Your Own is a tour de force that will change how you approach your health and mental well-being. Sara Gottfried, MD, author of The Hormone Reset Diet and The Hormone Cure

Here s a new prescription for thinking about the causes of depression and how best to treat it: heal the body and the mind will follow. Kelly Brogan provides readers with a clear review of the science behind that prescription, and shows how to fill it. A Mind of Your Own is an engaging read, and one that challenges readers to open their minds to new possibilities in mental health. Robert Whitaker, author of Mad in America and Anatomy of an Epidemic

I love A Mind of Your Own. The title is the perfect affirmation for how a person can take charge of her own mental health. Dr. Brogan cogently makes the point that anti-depressants are not without health risks and are of limited success in treatment. Anyone reading this book will come away with a scientifically based, safe, and effective approach to mental health without the use of drugs. Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, author of The Disease Delusion"
