Our guest this week is Kelly Brogan, MD and we’re talking about how to heal depression and other mental issues with “A Mind of Your Own”. Kelly is a Manhattan-based holistic women’s health psychiatrist and author of the New York Times Bestselling book, ‘A Mind of Your Own’. The book offers a realistic action plan that women can use to heal their bodies, alleviate inflammation, and feel like themselves again without a single prescription.
She saw the light years ago after she put her diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis into remission through naturopathic medicine. She had read the book Anatomy of an Epidemic by investigative journalist Robert Whitaker, which impacted her so deeply that it changed her life and career. The author implicated psychiatric medication in today's epidemics of mental illness. And he basically says that these meds are keeping people sick, generating new diagnosis for people and they're actually dangerous in ways that are not being talked about.
She researched more about it and brought this ethos to her practice. She stopped prescribing to patients beginning in 2010 and began to offer them the opportunity to come off; and that's when she learnt how hard these meds are to come off!
We put all information from JJ Virgin and notes from the other speakers on Mental Health Month together in an E-Book for you. You can get a copy by clicking here or on the image below:

During this Mental Health Month, I'll be doing a free Meditation Challenge meant to challenge you to meditate every day for a month and have support while doing it. And you don't have to do any huge amount of meditation; even just 1 min per day is fine because meditation is a great tool that can help us find peace of mind! Grab this chance to meditate with a supportive community.
Thanks for listening
