I recently found this site and plan to do some reading there:

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. She is on the board of GreenMedInfo, Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, Functional Medicine University, Pathways to Family Wellness, NYS Perinatal Association, Mindd Foundation, the peer-reviewed, indexed journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, and the Nicholas Gonzalez Foundation.

Kelly Brogan MD - Holistic Women's Health Psychiatry


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.

I recently hired a fantastic woman who has changed my life.

I had gone to my regular doctor complaining of increasing depression and she gave me a list of therapists and said "you really need a life coach but insurance won't cover that". She gave me medication and the referrals but I think she meant that I needed practical help as well ex finding a job.

I remembered that I had hired someone to complete my daughters college applications and help with essays so I asked her to help with practical matters like writing a resume, making phone calls, clearing my desk etc. I guess you could call it OT? Anyway so far she has helped me decide on a career and comes to the house and makes sure I do whatever I need at that time. Up until now I've relied on my kid but that isn't really fair to her.

Anyway I won't post the name here I guess. I don't know if this an appropriate place to mention all this but if anyone wants the name or has thoughts on this concept please let me know.

Review - Depression Is a Choice @metapsychology
(I haven't read her counter arguments yet. )

I'm recommending you to check her out. I'd say she's illegally good or something, my common sense in addition to my mental sense are rejoicing, my bet is that her editor couldn't handle her, the point of her self is not how right her claims are, but rather how one should seek one's own design, and build it from ground up with big purpose. I haven't read the book by the way, she sounds like much better person than Virginia Woolf whom I was reading earlier about.

Anyway: The Paradoxical Commandments: Finding Personal Meaning in a Crazy World.

Channel your inner bipolar!
