Lucky me. Chatting with New York Times bestselling author of A Mind of Your Own, Kelly Brogman, MD, was an hour-long soul sista exchange. Divine.
She’s a holistic women’s health psychiatrist who specializes in a root-cause resolution approach to psychiatric syndromes and symptoms. Putting her chronic disabling dis-ease into remission raised some red flags and led her to dig DEEP.
Then her entire house of cards crumbled. In her words:
Around the same time I was diagnosed and heard that inner voice, a colleague of mine asked me what I thought about the book, Anatomy of an Epidemic, by Robert Whitaker. I hated reading it. The book suggests that conventional psychiatric treatments are actually perpetuating the problems they are supposed to resolve. I finished reading it and began crying when I turned to the last page because I felt my entire house of cards crumble: what was I supposed to do with this information? I decided to put down my prescription pad and I committed to never again prescribe medication for a patient.
Wow. That’s Spirit calling!
Learn how symptoms of mental illness are not entirely a psychological problem, how depression is grossly misdiagnosed and mistreated, and how you have everything you need inside of you to be well when you honor it (p.32).
I’d love to know…
How do you make time and space to connect with yourself, what’s inside of you?
How do you connect with others who share your health perspective?
