Dr. Kelly Brogan: Radical Healing, Ugly Crying, and Celebrating Possibilities
In this episode of Waking Up Bipolar, Chris Cole speaks with Kelly Brogan, MD—holistic women’s health psychiatrist, author of the NY Times Bestselling book, A Mind of Your Own, and co-editor of the landmark textbook, Integrative Therapies for Depression.
Dr. Kelly Brogan completed her psychiatric training and fellowship at NYU Medical Center after graduating from Cornell University Medical College, and has a B.S. from M.I.T. in Systems Neuroscience. She is board certified in psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, and integrative holistic medicine, and is specialized in a root-cause resolution approach to psychiatric syndromes and symptoms.
She is on the board of GreenMedInfo, Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, Functional Medicine University, Pathways to Family Wellness, Mindd Foundation, SXSW Wellness, Chickasaw Nation Wellness, and the peer-reviewed, indexed journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine. She is Medical Director for Fearless Parent and a founding member of Health Freedom Action, as well as a certified KRI Kundalini Yoga teacher and a mother of two.
As you’ll hear in our conversation, Dr. Kelly Brogan walks her talk, and provides us with a glimpse into her own process that has allowed her to show up courageously as an activist and leader in alternative mental health. We start by talking about Dr. Kelly’s recent move to Miami from New York, where she was getting some nice tropical rain, and get into the intimate terrain of spiritual transformation. I’m blessed to be able to capture some of the wisdom behind Dr. Kelly Brogan’s life and great work in the world. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did. Thanks for joining us.
