This week our featured guest is Dr. Kelly Brogan, a Manhattan-based holistic women’s health psychiatrist and New York Times Bestselling author of A Mind of Your Own.

Kelly completed her psychiatric training and fellowship at NYU Medical Center after graduating from Cornell University Medical College, and has a B.S. from MIT in Systems Neuroscience. She is all about getting to root-cause of psychiatric syndromes and symptoms.

Kelly is the proud mother of two young girls.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Getting shunned by mainstream media
  • Depression is the number one cause of disability in the world

  • Wheat in North America (frankenwheat) vs. European wheat
  • Sugar burns like paper vs. fat burns like a log
  • Psychiatric patients need to be concerned about thyroid function
  • Research is around 20 years ahead of what doctors are doing
  • Depression isn't caused by a chemical imbalance
  • Inflammation is at the root of depression
  • The evolutionary purpose of depression
