Holistic women’s health psychiatrist, New York Times Bestselling author and integrative therapist, Kelly Brogan, M.D., knows what it takes to overcome psychiatric symptoms and conditions. Kelly embraces a root-cause approach to psychiatric illness and helps her patients get out of the zombie-like state caused by pharmaceuticals and start finding hope and possibility through personal truths.
Emotions, physical and chemical imbalance, nutrition, stress and more can all play a role in how your mind is functioning and how you make cognitive and behavioral decisions. When you are able to find a portal to your own personal power through natural ways of healing instead of pharmaceuticals, you can create new norms for your life or those you love.
There is a much bigger version of the story than what conventional medicine leads you to believe, and it is only by being honest with the parts of yourself that you are scared to interact with that you can become aware of the mask you are wearing.
