October 31st, 2018 By Kelly Brogan, M.D. Guest writer for Wake Up World We know that all drugs have side effects. That’s just part of the deal right? But is it really possible that an antidepressant can cause a sane person to act like a cold-blooded criminal? I imagined my audience would be wondering as much as…..Read more
Danska forskare hävdar att ohämmad användning av receptfria läkemedel som verkar mot inflammationer i kroppen, kan öka risken för hjärt-kärlsjukdom med så mycket som 50 procent. En ny dansk studie visar att risken ökade mest med receptbelagda tabletter som Ibux, Naproxen, Voltarol och Voltaren – så kallade NSAIDs. Text: TV Helse Norge | Översättning: Madeleine…..Läs mera
In recent years the medical community, including mainstream medicine and world health groups, have become increasingly alarmed by the proliferation of multidrug-resistant bacteria and the rising toll of death and illness that we’re now facing — and with very good cause. After all, literally millions of people are dying, worldwide, from bacterial infections. In the….Read more
Since Western medicine tends to focus on the symptoms, rather than a cure, major red flags in certain drugs are becoming more obvious. There are five very popular and widely prescribed pharmaceuticals that will actually destroy your health more than they will help temporarily.

By practice, I’m a psychotherapist who has been working for over a decade in the world of mainstream medicine, a body of experience that has allowed me to develop a strong understanding of both its strengths and weaknesses.
But beyond my work, I’m also a mom who fiercely loves her children, and for their sake, when it comes to their health I’ve always explored all available options — an approach that I’m proud to say has led me to find better solutions than any conventional specialist had ever offered.
My work has allowed me to cross paths with a seemingly endless number of psychiatrists and general practitioners, who for the most part have one thing in common: They all see medication as the optimal form of treatment for the vast majority of what they diagnose. This includes attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, sleep issues, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
For a long time, I wondered about the cavalier prescribing of drugs but bit my tongue. Who was I to question physicians with the benefit of many more years of medical training? My viewpoint changed in 2006 after I had my children who suffered similar challenges.
I knew doctors would recommend medication. I also knew I didn’t want my children to go down that road for fear it would severely damage their lively, beautiful spirits.
As my husband, Steve, and I tried to make do with physical and behavioural therapies, I read many medical journal articles about the link between autism, mental health issues and malnutrition, toxicity, food sensitivities and intestinal permeability, immune, metabolic and digestive issues. These discoveries led us to realize that these disorders could be a real medical illness treatable with natural remedies that didn’t involve intrusive, personality-altering medication. While we were skeptical at first, the potential rewards were so high that these methods outside the mainstream seemed well worth trying. And, I am happy we did!
