Truth About Women & Depression
One in seven women starts her day with an antidepressant for depression, grief, panic attacks, insomnia or stress. 

But, what if what women really need can’t be found at a pharmacy?

Dr. Roizen talks with Kelly Brogan, MD, who believes depression and anxiety are symptoms, not brain disorders, and they can be treated with simple lifestyle changes, not drugs. 

Listen in to learn why Dr. Brogan thinks depression is misdiagnosed and mistreated, especially in women, and why antidepressants may do more harm than good.

Her new book, A Mind of Your Own: The Truth About Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives, offers a step-by-step 30-day action plan. 

With advice on nutrition, sleep, and stress, women can use the simple plan to feel like themselves again.
