depression isn’t a disease, it’s a symptom
Think about the first 15 years of your life. Think about all you learned, experienced, lost, gained. Think about your life ages 15–30. Holy shift, amirite? Now think about the notion that there’s (at least) a 15-year gap—15 years—between what research proves and what the medical establishment practices.
Thankfully we’re not completely left to the outdated knowledge of our medical providers. Now more than ever we have agency in reclaiming our health, particularly our mental health.

It’s precisely this agency, along with leading-edge research, that Dr. Kelly Brogan wholly champions in A Mind of Your Own: The Truth About Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives. In her latest New York Times Bestseller, Dr. Brogan offers a bold blueprint for self-healing that happens when you stop filling your life with pharmaceutical drugs and start filling it with lifestyle medicine—an anti-inflammatory diet and supplements, regular exercise, meditation, sleep. All the things we intuitively know are healing but for which our minds need proof.
According to Dr. Kelly Brogan, antidepressants not only overpromise and underdeliver, but their use may permanently disable the body’s self-healing potential. Her proposed paradigm: The best way to heal the mind is to heal the whole body.
Follow her protocol and your life will change. There are hundreds of testimonials that verify this. In fact, when I followed her dietary protocol for 5 weeks, I reduced my thyroid antibodies by half and mitigated the bulk of aches and pains that Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis had gifted me.

Here at Healers, I don’t need to convince you that we can—and we are—healing ourselves. This is beautiful…and so important. If we’re to take our message to the streets, though, it helps to counter the naysayers with scientific literature. Brogan’s forward-minded clinical research is the fresh-pressed organic part of this juicy tome.
If you’re like me—a spiritually-curious-meets-science-based holistic yeasayer—then you’ll enjoy A Mind of Your Own. Plus, think about the next 15 years of your life as you enjoy the vitality that comes from applying the principles of A Mind of Your Own. Whew! I’m excited to see what positive change you create in this world.
