Publisher's Summary

For years, we've been telling ourselves that our difficult feelings - sadness, rage, shame, intensity, worry - are somehow "not okay". And, all too often, we've relied on the promise of pharmaceuticals to tamp them down. The fact is, though, that these feelings are a vital part of our experience. They are real. And those of us who feel them most strongly are the canaries in the coalmine - sensitive to things that are seriously wrong in the world today.  

In a book that's both provocative and promising, holistic psychiatrist Kelly Brogan, MD, author of A Mind of Your Own, shows us that we don't have to medicate our mental, emotional, and physical pain away - that the best way out is through. She explodes the mistaken belief that our symptoms - from mood changes to irritability to fogginess and fatigue - are evidence that we are sick or broken. Then she charts a new path to get real, get well, and get free. The journey includes: 

  • Coming to a new appreciation of the meaning behind symptoms, and whether you are a canary in the coal mine 
  • Learning the two major risks of medication that most doctors are not trained to disclose 
  • Exploring the five reversible physical drivers of so-called mental illness 
  • Starting the process of radical physical healing with inclusive details of Dr. Brogan's history-making 30-day protocol 
  • Taking an emotional inventory of energy drains and toxic relationships
  • Taking a deeper dive into the spiritual awakening and expansion that comes when you reclaim your real self from conventional medicine 
  • Identifying the most likely places you have given your power away 
  • Understanding what the science has to say about psychedelics as a tool for awakening 
  • Navigating health challenges with curiosity and the proper tools 
  • Guidance, support, and many Travel Tips shared from the trenches! 

Our experiences, Dr. Brogan argues, aren't problems or pathologies; they reflect what we need to accept, acknowledge, and transform in order to truly become who we are. Own Your Self is a journey of healing, and also something more: a journey of coming home to ourselves.
