New York Times best-selling author presents a radical alternative to psychotropic meds: discerning the meaning in your symptoms and your struggle as a way to reclaim your health and your self.

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. The fact is, though, that these feelings are a vital part of our experience. They are real. And those of us who feel them most strongly are the canaries in the coalmine--sensitive to things that are seriously wrong in the world today.

In a book that's both provocative and promising, holistic psychiatrist Kelly Brogan, M.D., author of A Mind of Your Own, shows us that we don't have to medicate our mental, emotional, and physical pain away--that the best way out is through. 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. The journey includes:
*Coming to a new appreciation of the meaning behind symptoms
*Starting a process of radical physical healing
*Doing an emotional inventory of energy drains and toxic relationships
*Taking a deeper dive into the spiritual awakening and expansion that comes when we reclaim our real self from conventional medicine

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. Get Real, Get Well, Get Free is a journey of healing, and also something more: a journey of coming home to ourselves.
