Dr Kelly Brogan is a Manhattan-based holistic women’s health psychiatrist, author of the NY Times Bestselling book, A Mind of Your Own and co-editor of the landmark textbook, Integrative Therapies for Depression. She completed her psychiatric training and fellowship at NYU Medical Center after graduating from Cornell University Medical College, and has a B.S. from MIT in Systems Neuroscience. She is board certified in psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, and integrative holistic medicine, and is specialized in a root-cause resolution approach to psychiatric syndromes and symptoms. Her science-based and holistic approach to treating depression shatters the mythology conventional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression.
Based on her expert interpretation of published studies, combined with years of clinical experience, Dr. Brogan illuminates the true cause of depression—and inflammation is at the root. She says a silent tragedy in the history of modern health care is happening right now around the world, but no one is talking about it. We have been told a story of depression: that it is caused by a chemical imbalance and cured by a chemical fix — a prescription. Millions of us take antidepressants, including one in seven women (one in four women in their forties and fifties). Millions more — maybe you—are tempted to try them to end chronic, unyielding distress, irritability, and feeling emotionally flat—trapped by an exhausting and unshakable inner agitation.
It is time to let go of this false narrative and take a fresh look at where science is leading us. Before you try an antidepressant or if you do currently take these drugs, then I have an important message for you. Depression is an opportunity. It is a sign for us to stop and figure out what’s causing our imbalance.
My goal is to: Help you change the beliefs we’ve all been fed by a system that is not really focused on wellness, but on symptom suppression— and profit. Help you discover your body’s innate ability to recalibrate, reset, and recharge so you can heal. Give you simple, highly practical steps in a comprehensive plan that activates your own healing power so you can start to feel freer and healthier in thirty days or less.
