I never cured anyone with a prescription. That realization was the genesis for Kelly Brogan, MD to begin her revolutionary journey with women’s psychiatry based on holistic health, diet and lifestyle — not prescription medication. Expectedly, she’s garnered strong push-back from Big Pharma — but has also acquired legions of devout patients and fans.
Shooting Kelly in her home, I tried to keep up with her sheer academic brilliance as she rattled off the latest research and problems with medical education. But she doesn’t dwell in complaining; she prefers to create solutions. I preferred to just let her go, following her lead, directing her when needed and shooting through the dialogue.
“Cultivate your intuition and combine it with this newly discovered knowledge and you will no longer be dependent on any medication, any doctor, or even any system. You’ll be in your power. This is the new medicine.”— KELLY BROGAN, MD
