    1. Lots of what seems like good evidence for the link between gut health and mental health, but I am left with a lot of questions about how solid her research is The author s credibility is strained by what I think are some pretty over the top claims about lack of effectiveness of pharmaceuticals such as statins new article in the NEJM just validated their effectiveness in preventing heart attack and stroke, even for those who are not high risk , toxicity of vaccines hello haven t we already been t [...]

    2. I have to start by saying I am not a health nut I am not that person who believes essential oils and mediation is going to help me I m far too impatient and not gullible enough for that I m just not I really struggled with this book because it feels like it s coming almost from the anti vaxxer group who will tell you that these things are going to ruin you and you re better off eating an apple or something I should also note that I m not that person who doesn t trust her doctors Yes, I get incre [...]

    3. I ve been trying to get off SSRIs for years I think I ll finally be able to Everyone should read this book.

    4. This book quite literally changed the trajectory of my family s health I stumbled across this book seeking answers to help my daughter who was struggling with anxiety, depression and an eating disorder The fact that Kelly is a trained psychiatrist who has rejected drugs as a viable therapy to treat her patients intrigued me The anti depressant that our daughter s psychiatrist prescribed wasn t working so she just kept upping the dose until our daughter self harmed At that point an anti psychotic [...]

    5. This book is a rollercoaster of oh wow that s really interesting to oh wow, what a nutjob.I liked the beginning where she dissects big pharma and how they play with studies to sell pills, the analysis of the placebo effect There s some good stuff in there like how the average depressive episode lasts up to 13 weeks, depression is the mind channeling all its resources to cognition to figure something out, and SSRIs can actually diminish the benefits of exercise on improving mental mood so healthy [...]

    6. I agree with the premise that depression is complex and pills only one narrow approach But I cannot agree with the radical approach that the author than proposes including her stance against birth control and vaccines.

    7. This book is a watershed moment an actual Doctor of Psychiatry who says Pills don t cure depression I thought depression was due to a chemical imbalance in the brain I don t know WHY I have always thought this was true a point the author makes by way of explaining that the U.S is one of only 2 countries on Earth that allow direct to consumer advertising This is what the makers of Prozac want us to think despite the fact that not one study in 60 YEARS has proven this to be true Dr Kelly Brogan co [...]

    8. After reading this shocking book its clear to see that Brogan is a paranoid, cherry picking conspiracy theorist, with an irrational fear of the FDA and Big Pharma She utilises non credible resources which lack peer review often citing websites she s PAID to write for herself to bash Western medicine, while presenting a narrow, limited cure for depression that in no way takes into account personal circumstances or challenges Brogan promotes unnecessary fear and fallacies about Western medicine, t [...]

    9. This is one of the worst pseudo science books I have ever read She criticises Big Pharma for using studies with small sample sizes and for failing to control for placebo effects but then the studies she posts as sources for her truly outrageous claims are so completely flawed it s hard to know where to begin in criticising them I was hoping for a book that explained some of the science behind depression, and had some of the studies of the recent links between the microbiome and mental health Wha [...]

    10. Quite fascinating and enlightening For a nonfiction it is very readable and practically helpful I had already given up dairy for two weeks before starting it and had seen a remarkable improvement in my allergies Now after reading this book I m taking my allergy testing seriously and have given up wheat and sugar and flouride toothpaste and am drinking filtered water And am going to bed at 10 00 pm I m very thankful for this book Different people will get different things from it as she covers a [...]

    11. This woman is a walking medical encyclopedia There is a lot of material in this book I was attracted to this book because I have had medical problems for 3 years and no doctor has yet to know what exactly is the answer to my problems Everyone dreams of a magic pill to quickly feel good, but good health doesn t work that way as this book points out I do believe in the gut brain dynamic That s the very 1st thing I am going to do go on a probiotic supplement This book has a lot of valuable informat [...]

    12. If you have ever taken medication for anxiety or depression, if you re currently taking them, or if you re considering taking them, I strongly urge you to read this book I have been struggling with anxiety and depression for about 18 months now, and it is one of the most physically and mentally painful and debilitating things a person can experience But I am here to tell you, and so is Dr Kelly Brogan, that anti depressants are not always the answer Despite what pharmaceutical companies would ha [...]

    13. En resumen Un libro bien documentado y contrastado con conocimientos y estudios m dicos que te har replantearte todo lo que hasta ahora cre as saber sobre la depresi n y los antidepresivos, as como la forma en que nuestro estilo de vida influye en nuestra salud f sica y emocional.Nota 4 5Lee la rese a completa en mi blog utopiainthemoonlight.

    14. Ugh How to review a book that says so many things you want to support, but for all the wrong reasons I m absolutely, positively, 100% in favor of attempting a lifestyle based cure for what ails you Start there Especially if you are American Our nation has gone completely off the rails when it comes to medicating This isn t even remotely at question I simply suggest that you choose a different guide I borrowed this because it was recommended on the A Delectable Education podcast, and an interesti [...]

    15. The main premise makes sense why haven t we thought of depression as a symptom before Besides that, this book is like combining Wheat Belly Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health with Moody Bitches The Truth About the Drugs You re Taking, The Sleep You re Missing, The Sex You re Not Having, and What s Really Making You Crazy and adding some nonsense She provides plenty of food for thought, and a lot of it made sense, but I found it interesting how she waited until the [...]

    16. I borrowed this book from the library and found it so chock full of good information that I ll actually now buy a copy to refer to regularly We ve long been hearing about the growing body of evidence connecting gut health to brain function This book continues the theme in an accessible way and provides clear advice on lifestyle and dietary changes you can make to improve your mental and physical health I m not on any SSRIs myself, but will certainly be giving some of these suggestions a try in t [...]

    17. Excellent book for women who are struggling with depression who want a holistic treatment A healthy diet, exercise, vitamins and plenty of sleep I particularly liked her research and recommendations for vitamins and supplements.

    18. The author has some excellent credentials in her preparation as a practising psychiatrist in Manhatten I scanned the book, and am disappointed to find a 30 day action plan that includes some marginal elements such as targeted nutrient support and detoxification , within the good advice regarding dietary interventions, sleep, and stress reduction I know that 30 days is the general pattern to develop new habits She also includes a section of recipes with ingredients, for which access would confoun [...]

    19. I have mixed feelings about this book On one hand, the evidence she provides in the first few chapters regarding anti depressants and seems legit and even inspired me to try dropping gluten for a month even though I have no history of mental illness, just to see if it affects me at all She also makes some reasonable points about the importance of exercise and meditation, but that s not new science However, Dr Brogan also believes in some far fetched and unsupported ideas that she offers with the [...]

    20. This book is a perfect example of why I pretty much hate all self help books Preachy, repetitive, fear mongering and full of contradictions and false evidence She and all anti vaxxers are public health terrorists The author s citing of hundreds of studies while rejecting medical science is laughable Avoid canned foods, but eat canned anchovies Wha While I agree that reducing my added sugar, processed food, refined carbohydrate and environmental toxins is good for my health overall, I did not buy [...]

    21. This book is a must read for anyone that is struggling with their mental health or has a loved one that is struggling Written by a board certified psychiatrist, Dr Kelly Brogan shatters the mythology conventional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression.

    22. This book has literally been lifesaving After watching an interview with the author that a friend recommended, I picked this book up at our local library and started reading it on the flight to visit my sister who was suffering from major anxiety and depression The I read, the I recognized that my sister s experience was nearly identical to what Dr Brogan explained from her research and observation in years of practice Many years of minimal nutritional focus and pregnancy related challenges ha [...]

    23. I heard this author speak on a Wellness Mama podcast highly recommended for nutrition wellness nerds and I was intrigued by her message Kelly Brogan is a well educated psychiatrist who threw away her prescription pad after dealing with her own autoimmune issues This book is a drug free way to heal mental health diseases She lays a lot of foundation about why we are sick and how medicine isn t helping and she sites several studies that claim it is harming , and then offers a 4 week protocol to ge [...]

    24. Oh, this book It s been a while since I ve touched non fiction I am so happy this book deals with eliminating depression in a practical way a combination of diet, meditation, exercise and sleep I ve always known the importance of these four but not in such detail and I was not motivated enough till I got in touch with the dreadful reality that is the present I am open to trying a lot of the things this book offers and I still do have a few qualms about uneasy things like coffee enema coffee enem [...]

    25. As a person who have made a conscious decision to try an adopt a green life style, try harder on going vegetarian, then hopefully vegan, because I completely believe that our current way of life is toxic not only to our physical body but also to our spirit, this book felt like the guidebook I was always looking for I could relate so much to what Dr Kelly Brogan is saying in her book A Mind of Your Own What Women Can Do About Depression That Big Pharma Can t , as a woman living with T1DM, Hyperth [...]

    26. Although I hope treatment for depression is heading in a natural direction, I m not sure that most people suffering with depression are ready to commit to the kind of approach offered in A Mind Of Your Own It requires a lot of commitment and effort, and when you are depressed it s hard to find the energy for either I did appreciate her revealing the flawed studies on antidepressants, and the withholding of information from other studies Big pharma makes a lot of money on drugs that often make p [...]

    27. Packed so full of well researched information, and well documented, that I suggest you set aside dedicated time to ingest it all, this excellent book is presented in two sections.Part one is about depression and other mood disorders and plus recent research and busting some long held beliefs, challenging long practiced medical protocols, and information on alternative therapies If you feel you are broken, part one contains enough information to convince you that you have personal power There ar [...]

    28. Like many self help health books attempting to convince the reader their way is THE way, the CORRECT way, the BEST way , the style of writing is like an infomercial It takes an irritatingly long time for Brogan to make her way from saying how right she is to actually presenting the data.Then it gets interesting There is a lot to the claims of the mind gut connection, and the erroneously simplistic view of mental illness originating from wonky levels of only 3 potential neurotransmitters Brogan f [...]

    29. As a psychotherapist I was astounded to know that the research on antidepressants really shows that they have no efficacy at all and the placebo effect is what creates initial change There is an amazing amount of research review in this book, which is truly mind blowing and opposite of popular belief about depression at this time Since I had to change my eating over a year ago, as a result of a GI diagnosis, to essentially what is recommended in this book, I can attest to the profound effect on [...]

    30. Fascinating and eye opening A psychiatrist s medicine free approach to treat depression and anxiety Highly recommended to anyone, also those who do not suffer from these problems for acquiring the knowledge of how to prevent them and also on how to prevent or treat many other problems for which depression and anxiety are just a symptom I wish many doctors will follow her path.
