What do you do when you feel depressed and it seems something that is out of your control? What's going on? We go through the inspirational narrative of overcoming clinical depression and bipolar II disorder with Carrie Brown.


Carrie has struggled with depression for as long as she can remember, and after she was diagnosed with BiPolarII Disorder 5 years ago, decided to become her own detective and figure out the root cause. She now lives a life completely free from all medications and any symptoms of BiPolarII Disorder or depression. 

She is also a recipe developer and best-selling KETO cookbook author, host of the Ketovangelist Kitchen podcast, and partner of the Ketovangelist Unlimited Program with Brian Williamson and Danny Vega. You can find Carrie sharing free KETO resources at and
