Depression is the leading cause of disability in America. The incidence of depression in the United States today is 10 times greater than it was in 1960—and that rate doubles every decade. Changes in the way we live, work, eat, sleep, and interact have made us increasingly vulnerable to this mood disorder. We are living out of sync with nature, our bodies, our spirits, and one another. We are living in an age of depression.
For 30 years, Dr. Jeffrey Rossman has been treating depressed people, many of whom do not want to take medication. Instead, they are looking for practical solutions that will help them get better naturally and permanently.
In The Mind-Body Mood Solution, Dr. Rossman offers a comprehensive, drug-free depression treatment program that fully integrates psychological tools with lifestyle practices such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, breathing, and meditation. In doing so, you will learn to make healthy, sustainable changes that have been proven to improve mood. In treating the mind and body, Dr. Rossman advocates for a new view of depression as not simply an illness, but a call from within to awaken to the possibility of a vital, fulfilling life.
In our fast-paced and often stressful lives, we face increasing demands on our time and energy. It seems like, more acid more, our hectic lifestyles prevent us from living a satisfying, lifeùone that's in sync with the needs of our bodies, our minds, and the connections we share with our loved ones. Today, more Americans are depressed than ever before: in fact, depression has become the leading cause of disability in America.
Depression not only, takes a toll on our mental wellness, it also poses a serious threat to our physical health, increasing the risk for developing diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and cognitive impairment. In The Mind-Body Mood Solution, Dr. Jeffrey Rossman, director of life management at Canyon Ranch, offers the first all-natural program for overcoming mild to moderate depression by healing both the mind and the body.
