A groundbreaking, medication-free, scientifically based approach to healing depression, anxiety, and brain fog by focusing on your "whole brain" - the brain, the gut, the microbiome, and the thyroid
There is a fundamental connection between the brain, the gut, the microbiome, and the thyroid: if any one part of this "whole brain" system is malfunctioning, it will impact the others. Taking care of your whole brain is the basis of Dr. Kellman's revolutionary approach to curing depression and other mood problems - without medication.
Based on Dr. Kellman's decades of experience as a physician and his ongoing study of the latest science, the book offers a lively, accessible explanation of how the brain works and why, for optimal brain health, you need to heal the microbiome, the gut, and the thyroid. With a proprietary three-week plan (21 days of meal plans, featuring 50 original and simple recipes; a complete exercise program; and a program of daily meditations and affirmations). The Whole Brain program offers drug-free relief to anyone suffering depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders, as well as those who just want to feel better.
"After decades of treating patients for depression, gastrointestinal problems, low thyroid, and a multitude of other 'mysterious' ailments, pioneer in holistic and functional medicine Dr. Raphael Kellman has connected the dots between the brain, the gut, the microbiome, and the thyroid. The Whole Brain offers his groundbreaking plan to diminish anxiety and depression-and to give you more energy and vitality."

The Whole Brain offers both a profound message and practical tools to own your mental states without medication. Highly recommended." (Dave Asprey, Founder and CEO of Bulletproof)
"Dr. Kellman is a rare kind of doctor. An innovative functional medicine physician? Indeed, he is that - but he helps his patients heal with the spiritual wisdom of a rabbi. His latest book, The Whole Brain, connects the dots between your gut, microbiome, thyroid, and brain. Not only does it present actionable lifestyle remedies to help you heal physically and mentally it also offers a deeply spiritual understanding of the will to heal."
