    A groundbreaking, science-based, and holistic approach to treating depression—not as a disease, but as a systemic imbalance—that will rescue millions of women currently taking pharmaceuticals or considering it. Last year alone thirty million Americans were prescribed $12 billion of antidepressants—SSRI’s are steadily becoming a traditional medicine panacea for depression, anxiety, panic attacks. Patients—overwhelmingly female—are looking for solutions, but according to Dr. Kelly Brogan, the help these women want can’t be found at the pharmacy. Antidepressants are not only the wrong way to treat depression, but their long-term use can permanently dismantle the body’s self-healing mechanisms. We need a new paradigm: The best way to heal the brain is to heal the body. Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings combined with years of evidence from helping her own patients, Dr. Brogan illuminates the real cause of depression: it is not a simple neurochemical disorder but rather a complex inflammatory disease—a manifestation of irregularities in the body that start far away from neural synapses and serotonin. In A Mind of Your Own, she demolishes the myths traditional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression, and offers a proscriptive, step-by-step thirty-day action plan—including dietary modifications, over-the-counter supplements, detoxification, sleep, and stress reduction techniques—women can use to heal their bodies, eradicate inflammation, and feel like themselves again. Bold, brave, and revolutionary, A Mind of Your Own challenges readers to question their assumptions and regain control of their own well-being—and on their own terms.

    From one of the world’s foremost physicians and researchers, a monumental work that radically redefines our conventional conceptions of health and illness to offer new methods for living a long, healthy life. Can we live robustly until our last breath? Do we have to suffer from debilitating conditions and sickness? Is it possible to add more vibrant years to our lives? In The End of Illness, David B. Agus, MD, one of the world’s leading cancer doctors, researchers, and technology innovators, tackles these fundamental questions, challenging long-held wisdoms and dismantling misperceptions about what “health” means. Dr. Agus argues for a way of honoring our bodies as complex, whole systems. This outlook informs how we can avoid all illnesses—not just cancer—and empowers us to take charge of our individual health in personal, customized ways we could not have imagined before.     This indispensable book is filled with practical but impossible-to-ignore suggestions, including: how taking multivitamins and supplements could significantly increase our risk for diseases such as cancer over time; why sitting down most of the day, despite a strenuous morning workout, can be as bad as or worse than smoking; how three inexpensive medications can substantially change the course of our health for the better; and the single most important thing we can do today to preserve our health and happiness that costs absolutely nothing.     The End of Illness is a bold call for all of us to become our own personal health advocates, and is a seminal work that promises to fundamentally change how we live.
