A Mind of Your Own by Kelly Brogan MD is an important book. There is no other way to say it. If you are taking medication for depression/anxiety
this book could quite possibly change your life!
Even if you decide not to follow the protocol she outlines. How? Because after you read this book, you will know.
And once you know, you can’t NOT know.
This book is very readable. Even though it’s written by a doctor, most of it feels more like you having coffee (whoops–I mean roasted dandelion root. Or, you know, water) with a friend. A very caring friend who believes in you and your ability to support your wondrous body in healing itself. And who, with any luck at all, will convince you of this.
Full disclosure: the protocol itself recommended by the author kind of terrifies me.
I’m wondering if I treat it like menu suggestions rather than maxims, if I can get the same benefit. (Probably not). There are recipes included in the book, some of which sound good to me. The author is Italian, after all, so there’s a good sporting chance that they’ll be good. Finally, I am a big fan of coffee, but am not excited about the idea of inserting a tube into my rectum to introduce it to my system. I love me some spicy eggnog coffee o.ral.ly. ‘Nuf said.
