Here is a medical doctor's drug-free, individualized program for defeating depression--with an extraordinary 90 percent success rate. Gabriel Cousens, M.D., shows how to heal depression safely at the biochemical level, synergistically rebalancing what he calls "the natural drugs of the brain" through a highly effective five-step program of mood-boosting substances (which occur naturally in the body and are even more effective than herbs such as St. John's wort), vitamin and mineral supplements, and a mood-enbancing diet and lifestyle. A seven-day menu plan and thirty savory but simple recipes give readers a jump start on feeling great.

Dr. Cousens, an Ivy League-trained physician, has based his groundbreaking program on the fundamental truth that not all depressions are alike and they do not always have the same physical or mental causes. Research shows that positive mood depends on much more than just the neurotransmitter serotonin. Restoring~ the delicate balance among many body chemicals--including amino acids, fatty acids, and glucose levels--is essential in order to return us to our natural state of joyous health. Through easy self-assessments, readers discern their unique depression profiles and learn how to customize Dr. Cousens's program to fit their biochemical needs.

Grounded in cutting-edge science yet accessible and safe, Depression-Free for Life shows how you can correct your personal biochemistry and regain optimism, energy, and joy in life, which are every person's birthright.

Recent bestsellers (The Arthritis Cure, Dr. Susan Love's Hormone Book, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health) prove the public's interest in finding medically safe, natural cures for common ailments. Now Dr. Gabriel Cousens, an Ivy League-trained physician, shares his drug-free program for helping the millions who suffer from depression. This is the first program to acknowledge that all depression is not alike--it has multiple and often surprising physical causes. Readers learn to customize Dr. Cousens's program to fit their unique depression profile, rebalancing what Dr. Cousens calls "the natural drugs of the brain" through his highly effective combination of amino acid therapy (which may soon supplant milder herbs such as St. John's wort), vitamin and mineral supplementation, and diet and lifestyle changes. Unlike drug therapy, which only soothes symptoms, Depression-Free for Life actually repairs depression at its biological source, restoring our control and joy in life.Recent bestsellers (The Arthritis Cure, Dr. Susan Love's Hormone Book, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health) prove the public's interest in finding medically safe, natural cures for common ailments.
