Matt Kahn
Author of Everything is Here to Help You

"Moving beyond the narrow biological boundaries of mainstream medicine, Dr. Kelly Brogan guides readers from passive acceptance of health care to personal empowerment. This book supports us to become informed, active agents in our own healing."

Gabor Maté, M.D.
Author, When The Body Says No: Exploring The Stress-Disease Connection

"Dr. Kelly Brogan is a voice of sanity and compassion for our healing crises. She sings into the heart of our buried wisdom, makes clear what’s broken in the culture. And backing it with science, Kelly gives us the path to genuine healing and sovereignty. This is so hopeful. I want every woman to read this—and heal."

Danielle LaPorte
Creator of The Desire Map series

"Kelly Brogan, M.D., does an amazing job combining cutting-edge information along with the practical tools for you to live a healthier personal reality. Her clinical and holistic approach from years of experience in doing independent research as a successful psychiatrist will teach as well as inspire you to get real, get well, and get free. This book holds the keys to inner peace and true happiness."

Dr. Joe Dispenza
New York Times best-selling author of You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter

"If you want to work on releasing suppressed emotions, Dr. Brogan has given you the perfect guide in Own Your Self. She encourages you to listen to and honor your emotions—and any related physical symptoms—fully and deeply, so that you may find a permanent, healing solution that gets to the root of the problem."

Kelly Turner, Ph.D.
New York Times best-selling author of Radical Remission

"Kelly Brogan has, once again, boldly, dangerously, and clearly pushed the conversation forward on how we individually and collectively heal. Own Your Self is at once an ice bucket over the head and a warm hug calling us home to the truest versions of ourselves, and then leading us there. I am elated to have this work to refer to from here forward."

Kimberly Ann Johnson
Author of The Fourth Trimester

"Kelly Brogan engages us in a courageous conversation about the epidemic of mental health issues in our society. Her work is an important part of the understanding that will set us free, at a time when an increasingly narrow interpretation of why such issues exist—and what we need to do to heal them—is as much a part of the problem as part of the solution."

Marianne Williamson
New York Times best-selling author of A Return to Love

About The Book

Own your Feelings

For years, we’ve been telling ourselves that our difficult feelings—sadness, rage, shame, intensity, worry—are somehow “not okay.” And, all too often, we’ve relied on the promise of pharmaceuticals to tamp them down.

Own Your Body

She explodes the mistaken belief that our symptoms—from mood changes to irritability to fogginess and fatigue—are evidence that we are sick or broken. Then she charts a new path to get real, get well, and get free.

Own Your Self

Our experiences, Dr. Brogan argues, aren’t problems or pathologies—they reflect what we need to accept, acknowledge, and transform in order to truly become who we are. This book is a journey of healing, and also something more: a journey of finally coming home to ourselves.
