Summary, etc.:
Depression is not a disease, it is a symptom. Recent years have seen a shocking increase in antidepressant use, with one in four women starting their day with medication. These drugs have 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. Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings, combined with years of clinical experience, 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 -day action plan--including dietary interventions, targeted nutrient support, detoxification, sleep, and stress reframing techniques--that women can use to heal their bodies, alleviate inflammation, and feel like themselves again without a single prescription.
