-- Marianne Williamson, New York Times best-selling author of A Return to Love For years, we've been telling ourselves that our difficult feelings--sadness, rage, shame, intensity, worry--are somehow not okay. And, all too often, we've relied on the promise of pharmaceuticals to tamp them down. The fact is, though, that these feelings are a vital part of our experience. They are real. And those of us who feel them most strongly are the canaries in the coal mine--sensitive to things that are seriously wrong in the world today. In a book that's both provocative and promising--available now in paperback for the first time--holistic psychiatrist Kelly Brogan, M.D., shows us that we don't have to medicate our mental, emotional, and physical pain away--that the best way out is through. She explodes the mistaken belief that our symptoms--from mood changes to irritability to fogginess and fatigue--are evidence that we are sick or broken. Then she charts a new path to get real, get well, and get free. The journey includes: - Coming to a new appreciation of the meaning behind symptoms, and whether you are a canary in the coal mine
- Exploring the 5 reversible physical drivers of so-called mental illness
- Starting a process of radical physical healing with details of Dr. Brogan's history-making 30-day protocol
- Taking a deeper dive into the spiritual awakening and expansion that comes when you reclaim your real self from conventional medicine
- Guidance, support, and many Travel Tips shared from the trenches
Our experiences, Dr. Brogan argues, aren't problems or pathologies; they reflect what we need to accept, acknowledge, and transform in order to truly become who we are. Own Your Self is a journey of healing, and also something more: a journey of coming home to ourselves.
