9780062405579: A Mind of Your Own: What Women Can Do About Depression That Big Pharma Can't

Depression is not a disease. It is a symptom.

Recent years have seen a shocking increase in antidepressant use the world over, with 1 in 4 women starting their day with medication. These drugs have steadily become the panacea for everything from grief, irritability, 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 readers on a journey of self-empowerment for radical transformation that goes far beyond symptom relief.

Book Description Hardcover. Book Condition: New. A groundbreaking, science-based and holistic approach to treating depression—not as a disease, but as a systemic imbalance—that will rescue millions of women currently taking pharmaceuticals or considering it.Last year alone thirty million Americans were prescribed $12 billion of antidepressants—SSRI’s are steadily becoming a traditional medicine panacea for depression, anxiety, panic attacks. Patients—overwhelmingly female—are looking for solutions, but according to Dr. Kelly Brogan, the help these women want can’t be found at the pharmacy. Antidepressants are not only the wrong way to treat depression, but their long-term use can permanently dismantle the body’s self-healing mechanisms. We need a new paradigm: The best way to heal the brain is to heal the body.Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings combined with years of evidence from helping her own patients, Dr. Brogan illuminates the real cause of depression: it is not a simple neurochemical disorder but rather a complex inflammatory disease—a manifestation of irregularities in the body that start far away from neural synapses and serotonin. InA Mind of Your Own, she demolishes the myths traditional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression, and offers a proscriptive, step-by-step thirty-day action plan—including dietary modifications, over-the-counter supplements, detoxification, sleep, and stress reduction techniques—women can use to heal their bodies, eradicate inflammation, and feel like themselves again.Bold, brave, and revolutionary, A Mind of Your Own challenges readers to question their assumptions and regain control of their own well-being—and on their own terms.
