Dr. Kelly Brogan: A Mind of Your Own
The Same 24 Hours
Dr. Kelly Brogan is a revolutionary MD who asks this question: "What is the happiest, healthiest version of yourself that you can imagine?" [Pssssst! How many of YOUR doctors ask that question?] Dr. Brogan has spent her medical career helping women reclaim their lives without drugs, without antidepressants and taking back their health. I will admit that I was hesitant to consider talking to Dr. Brogan--only because her work is so sensitive, so personal. But she is NOT in the business of shaming women--quite the opposite. Her work is empowering women to take control. And I had to share her work once I read her book. Her book, A Mind of Your Own: The Truth About Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives - has four a half stars on Amazon on a sensitive and controversial topic--women reclaiming their lives and their health. I know it changed the way that I will forever look at pharmaceuticals. She writes, "Many of us are far from our ideal vision of health. Meanwhile, mass media, drug companies, and the food industry hope we stay there – reliant on them. I’m here to tell you that you have choices and the power to change your life. You can get healthy and live happy – without drugs. I know, not just because of my medical training, but also because I’ve been where you are. On a beautiful day in NYC I got some bad news. The reason for my brain fog, why I’d repeatedly lost my keys, was literally losing my hair, and going through an excessive amount of cocoa butter lotion, along with other symptoms: postpartum thyroiditis, or Hashimoto’s disease. "Despite many years earning my medical credentials, I was not ready for a life dependent on pharmaceuticals. So, I searched for an alternative – and I found the gentle, hopeful world of natural self-repair. Two-and-a-half years and one pregnancy later, I was symptom free – and prescription free. But, more importantly, I’m on a mission. Now, in addition to my training as a psychiatrist, I’m also board-certified in integrative and holistic medicine, helping women get healthy and happy – without drugs. "Depression isn't a disease. It's a symptom. Learn more in the new book, #amindofyourown.
