Dr Kelly Brogan is a Manhattan based holistic woman's health psychiatrist, author of The New York Times bestselling book ‘A Mind Of Your Own’ and co-editor of the landmark textbook ‘Integrative Therapies For Depression’.

She completed her psychiatric training and fellowship at NYU Medical Centre after graduating from Cornell University Medical College and has a B. Sc from MIT in Systems Neuroscience.

Join us as I ask Dr Kelly:

* What is the definition of depression?

* What role do antidepressants really play?

* What can the contraceptive pill do to someone’s mental state?

Dr Brogan will also share with us:

* The importance of your gut microbiome.

* Ways to send our body signals of safety and reclaim your health.

* The link between the side effects of psychotropic drugs and violence.

Dr Kelly is dedicated to mental wellbeing, and her expertise shines through in this podcast, when she says things like:

“When I put down my prescription pad and I started to employ lifestyle medicine in my practice I had a full recovery of unmedicated patients.”

“Our diet is communicating to our entire nervous system through the responsivity and integrity of our gut microbiome.”

“We are not meant to be the superhuman race that outpaces the rest of the planet through the great gifts of science and technology!”
