Depression is one of the UK's leading causes of disability.

One in four women in their 40s are prescribed antidepressant drugs BUT depression is a sign of malfunction of the body, not in the brain and it can be treated with simple lifestyle interventions. The UK's mental well-being is in a state of crisis, psychiatric drugs are overprescribed and the causes of depression and anxiety oversimplified as a genetic and brain malfunction. This book debunks the myths and sets out a natural cure for depression, proving that low serotonin levels are not the primary cause of depression, but that inflammation is the root cause and this can be treated by way of lifestyle changes.

The book explores the truth about depression, including the latest science and how our genes express themselves through the food choices we make, as well as Dr Brogan's four-week plan with menus.

Written in a lively style and laced with compelling scientific proof, this groundbreaking book proves that symptoms of depression are often markers of an underlying problem originating outside the brain which can be effectively treated without pharmaceuticals.

Please read this if you have anxiety or depression


This book will make an unbelievable difference to your life if you suffer from anxiety or depression. Very few of us are successfully treated using medical intervention for these conditions so most continue to suffer in silence, often with tragic outcomes. THIS IS A ROADMAP THAT WORKS. It is absolutely better than anything else available.



Interesting read


I liked the book and actually diagnosed myself with thyroid autoimmune disease using the tests recommended in this book however, my condition was made worse by following the meal plan. I have since found the AIP diet and improved immensely. I am surprised since she has so many patients why she would recommend a diet that would not suit most autoimmune sufferers.



Game changer

Perfectly written in a way all can follow, informative, well referenced for further study. All women should pick up a copy and share it will all they know. Regardless to whether you have depression or not, it is an empowering book from page 1. 10/10

Everyone should read this book. Life changing. A must.


Finally someone with qualification has come out, and told the truth about medication and the brain. We all have one and we should take personal care of our own mental health/body health. A must read for all parents, as it could change your child's mental health, before it's an issue.



Love this book


This book is so informative. It's true that doctors over prescribe anti-depressant and don't ask why do we have depression.
