Publisher's Summary

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 her 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 combined with 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 30-day action plan - including powerful dietary interventions, targeted nutrient support, detoxification, sleep, and stress reframing techniques - 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 listeners on a journey of self-empowerment for radical transformation that goes far beyond symptom relief.

Excellent material

If this is the first time you have heard the material or it's a reminder, this book is right on the mark. As a functional nutritionist I know when I stray from what works for me and try to justify it saying it's ok, I should be able to handle it, it just doesn't work. I've had "depression" all my life searching for ways to "handle" it from meds to counseling to more permanent solutions and nothing is more powerful than what is suggested in this book.

Critical and Necessary Read

I found the information presented here to be brave. We need more specialists in the field of health to come forth with their experiences and knowledge of Big Pharma and the food industries incessant corruption that is poisoning us from every direction. We can't simply stand aside any longer and just allow it. Voices must be heard in whatever capacity possible. If you are not comfortable with leading edge information you may find this book to be more in line with conspiracy but if you have intuition and ability to think for your self you will know the truth when it rings. Dr Kelly Brogan courageously presents her experience in the world of mental health and her personal journey with human biology and nutrition as an offering to empower woman to forgo the damaging effects of pharmaceuticals as well as donates a wealth of knowledge to young, old, male, female ground breaking information on diet and lifestyle that is truly all encompassing. Only the brave enter here though. Be prepared to have the rug pulled out from under your beliefs about certain systems that make up our current world.
