When Dr. Brogan published a groundbreaking book about natural approaches to treating depression, she expected the book to make waves, but big pharma had other ideas…
Depression is a big problem in the modern world – well, unless you’re a drug company, that is…
Drugs to treat depression are a multi-billion dollar industry, and the drug companies would like to keep it that way. That’s what Dr. Kelly Brogan, M.D. learned the hard way with the launch of her new book, “A Mind Of Your Own.”
In Kelly’s book, she explains some of the dangers of prescription drug use to treat depression, and offers a number of natural alternatives.
Here is a bit more about Kelly and her book, from NaturalHealth365:
A Manhattan-based holistic women’s health psychiatrist, Kelly graduated from Cornell University Medical College, completed her psychiatric training and fellowship at NYU Medical Center, and holds a B.S. from MIT in Systems Neuroscience. After years of conventional training, Dr. Brogan – a board certified psychiatrist – came to realize that toxic-drug ‘therapies’ failed to offer a solution and quickly developed an integrative (holistic) medical practice.
Dr. Brogan discovered conventional modes of treatment – characterized by heavy reliance on pharmaceuticals – was actually doing a huge injustice to her patients and her practice. Her discovery of natural methods for controlling depression, particularly in women, through the use of diet and other means, is at the heart of her book, A Mind of Your Own.
However, despite a great start (with publishers and book dealers lined up for the rights to her book, and pre-release Amazon sales immediately pushing it into the best-seller list), her publisher was surprised to find her book shunned by most major media outlets.
Those major media outlets are supported in large part with advertising dollars from big pharma. Inviting Dr. Brogan as a guest and allowing her to speak the truth about the dangers of pharmaceutical use in treating depression would put all that revenue at risk, a step the major media outlets refused to take.
But the book has met with wide acclaim from non-industry critics and readers alike. You can help fight back against big pharma by helping spread the word about safe, natural, and effective alternatives to over-used drugs – especially when it comes to depression and mental health issues.
How? Start by buying a copy of A Mind Of Your Own. Call your local bookstore and ask them to stock the book if they don’t already. Buy copies for friends and family members who may benefit from a natural approach to mental health. You can also promote the book on social media using #amindofyourown.
Tell the big drug companies that you want access to the truth about real health – not just another pill!
