Mind of your ownIn the summer of 2001, after being on Prozac for more than a decade, I made the life-altering decision to go off of antidepressants.

Despite what doctors and nearly everyone else around me were saying – that I had a chemical imbalance and that antidepressants were essential to keep me going – I believed otherwise. Intuitively, I knew that there was a better way to live, yet almost no one in my support system was in agreement with this line of thinking.

For the millions of people facing depression and who have similar doubts about medication being the only answer, a book has arrived that completely validates our concerns.

In the New York Times best-seller A Mind of Your Own: The Truth About Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives, Dr. Kelly Brogan, an MIT and Cornell-trained psychiatrist, gives us the hard facts about antidepressants and busts all of the widely believed myths about this class of drugs.

In fact, the medical community is so terrified of the truth being exposed in A Mind of Your Own that Dr. Brogan and this book have been blacklisted by the mainstream media. Yes, blacklisted!  Why?

Because this book contains information that the pharmaceutical industry, which has enormous influence over the mainstream media, does not want you to know about. They want you to believe the lies and propaganda, so you’ll be a life-long customer of antidepressants.

Dr. Brogan, who displays serious scientific rigor and analysis, does not mince words at all. Among many other things, she says or quotes the following:

“It’s a fabrication of science to think that these drugs (antidepressants) have a place in medicine, what is meant to be the art of healing.”

“It could be argued that antidepressants are the new tobacco.”

“Not a single study has proven that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.”

“Antidepressants have repeatedly shown in long-term scientific studies to worsen the course of mental illness.”

Psychiatry remains the wastebasket for the shortcomings of conventional medicine in terms of diagnosing and treating.”

“Published research is unreliable at best, if not completely false,” referring to the comments made by Dr. Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief of the much revered Lancet.

These are heavy words, to say the least.

And as to why she wrote this book:

“I’m compelled to share what I’ve learned from witnessing the corruption of modern psychiatry and its sordid history while investigating holistic methods that focus on nutrition, meditation, and physical activity.”

Along with completely destroying the notion that antidepressants are the only effective way to deal with depression, Dr. Brogan puts forth her 30-day holistic program in great detail, which addresses all areas of diet, supplements, environment, stress management/meditation, exercise, sleep, water and other lifestyle habits. The plan directly addresses the main causes of depression – glitches in the immune system and inflammatory pathways – instead of the false narrative that serotonin levels are to blame.

If anyone you know is suffering from depression or is on antidepressants, A Mind of Your Own is an absolute MUST-READ, and it is not just for women. Men can absolutely benefit from this book as well.

A Mind of Your Own is an incredibly important piece of work.

Also, tomorrow at 1PM EST, I will be interviewing Dr. Brogan on Facebook Live. If you’d like to ask her any questions “LIVE”, this is your opportunity. To watch, please Like my Facebook page and watch for the notification at 1PM EST.

UPDATE: To watch the replay of this Facebook Live interview with Dr. Brogan, go to my my Facebook page and search for the interview on April 15, 2016.  Unfortunately, there is no direct link to it.

    I’m a couple of months late to the party, but I’m a firm believer in this thinking. After being on Lexapro for 17 years I was finally able to stop taking this medication, but only after:
    changing my diet
    leaving a bad relationship
    consistently exercising
    leaving a bad job
    removing toxic people from my life
    quitting smoking
    quitting drinking
    hydrating with purified water
    following a consistent sleep schedule
    I weaned myself off over the course of two years and have never looked back. It can be done.
    Thank you for sharing this most important information with the world.

    This is a very tough subject and I pray people would enter in with a open heart … kinda reminds me of the vaccines the medical community is trying to enforce on babies…

  • Raphael OConnor says:

    I would like to point out that Dr Brogan saying “Not a single study has proven that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain” has nothing to do with how effective antidepressants are on depression. That’s like saying that my migraines are caused by an imbalance of Tylenol in my system. Tylenol is meant to treat the migraine for whatever reason is causing the pain.

  • Laurie says:

    I can’t wait to watch it, thank you.

    Max – Thank you for getting the word out and for interviewing Dr. Brogan – I can’t wait to watch!
