Studies have shown that antidepressants are among the most difficult drugs to taper from, more so than alcohol and opiates.
Women experience more than 2x’s the rate of depression as men, regardless of race or ethnic background.
1 in 4 women in 40s and 50s use psychiatric drugs.
Depression is a message. It’s an opportunity for us to stop and figure out what’s causing our imbalance.
Wise words indeed! As shared by Kelly Brogan MD in her bold new book. She is a trailblazer, is bold and is not afraid to say it like it is – A Mind of Your Own: The Truth about Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives. It is groundbreaking, brave, science-based and offers a truly holistic approach.
