For years, we've been telling ourselves that our difficult feelings-sadness, rage, shame, intensity, worry-are somehow "not okay." And, all too often, we've relied on the promise of pharmaceuticals to tamp them down. The fact is, though, that these feelings are a vital part of our experience. They are real. And those of us who feel them most strongly are the canaries in the coalmine-sensitive to things that are seriously wrong in the world today.
In a book that's both provocative and promising, holistic psychiatrist Kelly Brogan, M.D., author of A Mind of Your Own, shows us that we don't have to medicate our mental, emotional, and physical pain away-that the best way out is through. She explodes the mistaken belief that our symptoms-from mood changes to irritability to fogginess and fatigue-are evidence that we are sick or broken. Then she charts a new path to get real, get well, and get free. The journey includes:
• Coming to a new appreciation of the meaning behind symptoms, and whether you are a canary in the coal mine
• Learning the 2 major risks of medication that most doctors are not trained to disclose
• Exploring the 5 reversible physical drivers of so-called mental illness
• Starting the process of radical physical healing with inclusive details of Dr. Brogan's history-making 30-day protocol
• Taking an emotional inventory of energy drains and toxic relationships
• Taking a deeper dive into the spiritual awakening and expansion that comes when you reclaim your real self from conventional medicine
• Identifying the most likely places you have given your power away
• Understanding what the science has to say about psychedelics as a tool for awakening
• Navigating health challenges with curiosity and the proper tools
• Guidance, support, and many Travel Tips shared from the trenches!
Our experiences, Dr. Brogan argues, aren't problems or pathologies; they reflect what we need to accept, acknowledge, and transform in order to truly become who we are. Own Your Self is a journey of healing, and also something more: a journey of coming home to ourselves.

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.
Integrative Therapies for Depression: Redefining Models for Assessment, Treatment and Prevention summarizes emerging theories and research findings on various nonpharmaceutical therapies to treat mood disorders.
Supported by the review of nearly 3000 scientific studies, the book describes the concepts of inflammation, genetics, hormonal imbalance, gastrointestinal conditions, environmental stress, and nutritional deficiencies and their possible link to the pathogenesis of mood disorders.
It also examines findings on various nonpharmaceutical therapies used to treat mood disorders including vitamins, botanicals, and other natural products as well as exercise, stress reduction, bright light, mind-body practices, and spiritual approaches.
Also covered are evidence-based approaches to integrative management of mood disorders in pregnant women, adolescents, and the elderly. Separating facts from fiction, the book provides practical information that clinicians can implement and share with their patients.
The book fills a significant gap in the conventional model of therapeutics for mood disorders. It is a valuable resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, family therapists, and all other clinicians who devote their days to caring for those afflicted with depression.
La depresión y otros trastornos mentales, afirma Kelly Brogan, no se deben a un desequilibrio en la química cerebral, como viene afirmando la medicina, sino al estilo de vida y a condiciones fisiológicas que tienen su origen lejos del cerebro, en órganos como el intestino y la tiroides.
Basándose en estudios publicados y contrastados, la psiquiatra y neuróloga propone sencillas estrategias para recuperar la alegría de vivir sin recurrir a los fármacos ni a largas sesiones de psicoterapia, que incluyen cambios en la dieta, suplementos naturales, sueño y desintoxicación.
Una obra rigurosa, valiente y novedosa que nos garantiza una transformación radical, tanto física como mental.
Travel to the land of Sangati where Asha and her family were praying for rain during a mysteriously dry period that was causing everything to fall out of balance, and her grandmother to be ill. Little did she know that the Sky Beings in charge of the weather and natural cycles were all under a happiness spell. Indra had forgotten that her tears were important, however, not only to her, but to the the very land below. Find out she breaks the spell, saves Asha, her family, and heals the land with the sensitivity of her heart.
Written by New York Times and international Bestselling author and holistic psychiatrist, Kelly Brogan MD and her daughter, this story is offered as support for parents seeking to create room for feelings. Making room for feelings involves the acceptance of seemingly negative emotion as meaningful and even healing. The greatest gift we can give to our children, and to this planet, is permission to feel it all.
