Achieve and maintain mental health

Now available

After the great demand for my first book “Stability you can eat!?” I am delighted to announce the publication of my follow-up book “Stability as a way of life” (currently being translated).

In this second book, I take a much closer look at the “psychiatric system” and the use of psychotropic drugs. I also explain the deeper connections between brain health and our mood.


Foreword by Prof. Spitz

I was very pleased that Prof. Spitz – founder and mastermind of the Academy of Humane Medicine – was willing to write a foreword for my new book. Here you will find a small excerpt: (originally in German, translated with

Excerpt from the foreword by Prof. Jörg Spitz

(…) Even in her first book “Stability you can eat?!”, the expert demonstrated a particularly high level of competence based on experience. This book focuses on the question of how nutrition influences the psyche and what those affected by mental illness can achieve by consciously changing their diet. This detailed specialist knowledge is not only interesting and helpful for those affected by bipolar disorder. Together with Annett Oehlschläger, I conducted an in-depth interview on the subject, which has already reached almost 100,000 people. You can find this on the YouTube channel of the Academy for Human Medicine.

(…) Because even if everything you read in this book is fully proven and documented by scientific studies, there is a difference between observing a result in a laboratory or in a scientific journal and a person reporting from their own experience.

(…) Annett Oehlschläger’s book “Stability as a way of life” succeeds in appealing to both aspiring and practicing doctors and other representatives of the medical professions, as well as encouraging those affected to take the reins of action back into their own hands. They will all benefit greatly from reading this book!

Readers’ opinions

When modern psychiatry reaches its limits, criticism is necessary

What does it mean to suddenly become mentally ill? What can patients expect in a psychiatric hospital and where does the system reach its limits? In the first part of her new book, Annett Oehlschläger offers an impressive and moving account of her experiences, which also takes the liberty of criticizing the current practice of psychiatry – fairly and constructively, but clearly on the matter. Always from the perspective of someone who has experienced all this first-hand.

This book is just as valuable for other people affected as it is for employees and managers in the healthcare sector and the medical professions. When else do you get such a detailed view of all the areas that need to be optimized? At the end of the book, the author even outlines an ideal psychiatry of the future, geared towards the goal of healing and in harmony with the needs of those affected. Many of these points could already be put into practice.
