Unmedicated: The Four Pillars of Natural Wellness
Publisher’s Weekly

Taylor, cofounder and editor-in-chief of the inspirational website DailyOM, shares her story of her own overreliance on medications that numbed her to her full potential in this instructive take on holistic medicine. She was on antidepressants and antianxiety medications for decades but now lives without them, and here presents a four-pillar plan aimed at helping readers break their need for pharmaceuticals. The first pillar, “clear your mind,” emphasizes meditation, explaining how it can help readers quiet the mind and giving practical steps for beginning a daily practice. With this foundation, Taylor says, readers can then slowly wean themselves off of medications with the help of journaling, strengthening the body from inside out by eating well, learning to manage time efficiently, and purposefully engaging others. Taylor introduces potential pitfalls and solutions so that readers won’t be overwhelmed. Spiritual elements are slight but they do undergird her holistic philosophy of building mental health from a foundation of meditation. Taylor’s slow-burning guide to releasing the mind from medication will work best as a supplement to clinical advice. (Jan.)

In this deeply personal and profoundly practical guide, Madisyn will hold your hand through how to take daily actions to change your state.

HeatherAsh Amara, bestselling author of the Warrior Goddess book series

Her revelations result in her four pillar program, which can lead anyone who follows the practices to a profound feeling of health and well-being. Whether you take medication or not, I encourage you to use Unmedicated as a tool to create positive change. Take action and feel the shift.”

Lissa Coffey, author of The Four Pearls and The Four Squirrels

“Many eloquent voices have begun to dispute the widely held view that our life challenges are best handled by taking chemicals.

A very rich, interesting and important book—and highly recommended!”

“Many years ago, I started to face the darkness of my childhood and the addictive patterns I used to avoid my inner pain and suffering. I wish that my yesterday-self had been handed Madisyn’s book Unmedicated. With amazing honesty, Madisyn shares her own spiral into despair and resulting over-reliance on prescription medications. The four pillars she discovered, created, and employed to free herself from the secrets within her soul also released her from this dependency. These four pillars, each composed of wisdom and action steps, can do the same for you, whether you are hiding your light within medications, isolation, illicit drugs, or simply bad thoughts about yourself. When employed sequentially, the four pillars will unlock you from bondage. When integrated into the rest of your life, they will bring meaning to the phrase ‘being alive.’”
