Meet Dr. Brogan, and awakening to a healthier life. 

– Illnesses can be seen as a special invitation to wake up.

– Health is not about medications or no medications, it’s about answering the question your body is asking.

– This book creates a roadmap on how to be yourself and awakening to true self


What is it that psychiatry has missed, what is your big insight here?

– We’re seeing more and more mental illnesses, even in our younger population.

–  We are made to believe that by managing our symptoms with medications we are managing our reality.

– Understand that you are emergent phenomena, connect to yourself and connect to the universe.


What do you mean by an evolutionary mismatch?

– People who are sick or have psychiatric illnesses have this perception that there is something wrong. 

– Come to an understanding that the world around me has created a situation that I’m rebelling against.


Taking a pill for the pain is a problem, not a solution?

– Taking a pill for the pain is a problem, not a solution

– In six decades no valid evidence that mental illness is a chemical imbalance.

– Most of the time it is only symptom management, underlying issues are not being addressed.

– We have a reverse engineer model where the medications we are taking to address the psychiatric issue, leads to the theory of the pathological diagnosis.

– Evidence of efficacy and side effects of the medications are far broader than its benefits


What have been your insights around pain, tears and emotional healing?

– You must learn to be that first midwife for yourself, tell yourself this message “Just Let it hurt

– Initiation is necessary for transformation into the adult conscious. We are always focused on product achievement and output.

– Adversity, Deep grief, challenges have medicine in them, which provides strength for healing.

-We can develop emotional mastery, and own ourselves, by making room for this kind of vulnerability (i.e feeling grief and other emotions)and authenticity.


Why is fear the sickness?

– We are all struggling with a torrent of fear all the time, be it financial issues, relationships or just within ourselves.

– Our defensive mechanisms keep us from healing, emotional repression can lead to illnesses.

– Learn to embrace your fear.

– Watch these simple breathing and relaxing techniques and meditations to help relieve anxiety and fear.
