One of the most wonderful things about functional medicine is applying research findings clinically with often amazing results.
And one of the most frustrating things about functional medicine is how difficult it is for those findings to be accepted by society.
My friend, integrative psychiatrist Kelly Brogan, MD, discovered this when her new book A Mind of Your Own was blacklisted by major media outlets.
Why? Because mainstream media is not ready to hear about the underlying causes of depression, the problems with antidepressants and their studies, and how medication for depression masks the disorder’s underlying conditions.
These are the topics Kelly exposes in her book A Mind of Your Own, which is now rated number one on Amazon for depression.
Although A Mind of Your Own was readily accepted for publication, the top media outlets have blacklisted it and threatened negative press if it’s promoted (hint: pharmaceutical companies are their major advertisers).
Kelly needs help raising awareness about the true nature of depression and its management. She is asking people to:
- Buy Mind of Your Own to move it onto the bestseller list
- Ask your local bookstore to stock it
- Take a selfie with the book and post it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #amindofyourown
Save Your Brain: The Six-Week Rescue Plan
Adding to this discussion, I wanted to remind you I have opened registration for my online course called Save Your Brain: The Six-Week Rescue Plan.
In this course I guide you through a series of steps to not only banish brain fog, but also address root causes of depression, memory loss, and other brain-based issues.
I have already read the book. Should I still attend?
Sam; The course is based on the book, and adds some information helpful in dealing with diminished brain function. Having the guidance of the course makes it easier for some folks to work through the protocols. There is also a members-only discussion group on facebook. Our 2015 course members told us they thought it was very worth it. There is a no-risk refund option during the first week, so if you want to sign up and see if it’s for you, that makes it easy.
Always timely information, thank you! The Brain Rescue 2015 course was beyond fantastic. Thank you so much, again!
Wow, lots of great information.
When does the next 6 week course start?
Sheila; Thanks for your interest in the course. Dr. Kharrazian plans to offer the course again in 2016, but dates are not yet set. We’ll announce them via our newsletter and on the website. To sign up for the newsletter, just go to the [sign-up widget on the blog](https://drknews.com/) and enter your email address.
