'THE DRUG-FREE ALTERNATIVE TO ENDING DEPRESSION

'

"Depressed people cannot simply 'cheer up.' They suffer from a chemical imbalance in their central nervous system that is the source of their depression. Fortunately, balance can be restored, and that is the aim of this book...I will demonstrate how common behaviours can either maintain a brain-chemical imbalance and thus sustain depression or be used to balance our brain chemicals in order to overcome depression."- from 'Natural Prozac'

For millions of people, depression is an inescapable fact of daily life. Now, 'Natural Prozac' reveals how to break the debilitating grip of clinical depression by ending self-destructive patterns of thought and behaviour. This safe, easy-to-follow, and scientifically proven approach to natural healing addresses the root causes of depression, not just its symptoms, and offers a new way to restore the brain's natural
chemical balance without the use of prescription drugs.

'DR JOEL ROBERTSON, an internationally known expert on pharmacology and brain chemistry, helps readers: '

· develop a tailored program of diet and exercise that will restore natural balance to the brain's chemistry
· learn new techniques for understanding and breaking free of negative habits
· adopt behaviours that produce and promote beneficial brain chemistry
· use other natural methods to understand and overcome the cycle of depression, and
· establish a lifestyle that makes full use of the tools we each possess to control and improve our own psychological and emotional health

As director of The Robertson Institute, Dr Joel Robertson, author of Peak Performance Living, has provided performance enhancement programs and treatments
for clients including General Motors, United Airlines, the Detroit Red Wings, and many others.

Tom Monte is the bestselling coauthor of 'Recalled by Life', and a contributor to 'Life, Natural Health, New Age Journal, ' and 'Cosmopolitan. '

Review:

Another book that seeks to help the depressed change their brain chemistry without medication, Natural Prozac divides such people into two types. "Satiation" types seek to boost their levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin to promote relaxation, calmness, and a sense of security, and often become uncomfortable in overly arousing situations. "Arousal" types, on the other hand, eat foods and participate in activities that boost norepinephrine and dopamine, neurotransmitters related to alertness, assertiveness, and aggression; such people would rather be anxious than bored. According to Robertson, one of the ways for each of these types of people to battle depression is to act against their instincts: when satiation types raise their "excitement" chemicals and arousal types raise their "calmness" chemicals, their brains come into better balance; while this may make them anxious at first, eventually they become tolerant of the higher levels. Robertson recommends a variety of methods for doing this--through diet, exercise, spiritual practices, and even music (songs by Bach raise serotonin, he says, while Springsteen's "Born to Run" boosts norepinephrine and dopamine). Although some readers may be uncomfortable with being pigeonholed into a category, those who agree that they fit one type or the other will find plenty of advice on what to do next.
