Anxiety and Depression: A Natural Approach by Shirley Trickett - Editorial Reviews - Product Description - Written in a clear and compassionate style, Anxiety and Depression: A Natural Approach puts the reader - not the drugs - in control. This second edition has been fully updated with the latest medical information and the newest alternative treatments, including herbal remedies, nutritional therapies, and meditation techniques.

Stress, Anxiety and Depression: The Natural Way of Healing (Dell Natural Medicine Library) by Natural Medicine Collective - Editorial Reviews - Product Description - A team of licensed natural-health practitioners provides authoritative guidance and specific holistic methods for relieving, reducing, or removing the symptoms and effects of stress, anxiety, depression, tension, grief, worry, and anger.

Metacognitive Therapy for Anxiety and Depression by Adrian Wells - Editorial Review - "Wells has written a very important book, rich in clinical understanding and practical guidance. Metacognitive therapy is based on a well-developed and thoroughly tested model that addresses core disordered processes, including attentional bias and rumination. The procedures he describes will be enormously useful to therapists of all persuasions, and can form the bedrock of low-intensity and high-intensity interventions for a wide range of disorders." - Chris R. Brewin, Clinical, Educational, and Health Psychology, University College London, UK "Metacognitive Therapy offers a strategy for addressing those well-learned and hard-to-fix thinking patterns that can be tough to change. As a clinician who has struggled with helping people work through dysfunctional thinking patterns, I can appreciate the usefulness of Wells's methods. Metacognitive therapy helps both the patient and the therapist take a step back from the sometimes repetitive work of cognitive therapy, and lends a new perspective with the potential for breaking through treatment roadblocks. Well done!" - Monica Ramirez Basco, Department of Psychology, University of Texas at Arlington, USA "The metacognitive model is based on years of research on the nature of different levels and processes of thinking underlying psychological disorders. Clinicians who read this revolutionary book will be able to utilize techniques found nowhere else. Intriguing, creative, and effective clinical strategies are illustrated with clear case examples that demonstrate how to modify recurrent patterns of rumination, worry, and over-reliance on problematic processes of thinking. Chapters on specific disorders provide tools and conceptualizations that take the cognitive model in new and exciting directions. I highly recommend this brilliant contribution." - Robert L. Leahy, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York Presbyterian Hospital, USA "This book presents a new and innovative approach that focuses on how patients think, as much as what they believe. It is firmly grounded in basic science and packed full of powerful clinical strategies for helping people change the way they think. Wells shows how attention training and detached mindfulness techniques can be applied to a full array of anxiety and depressive disorders with impressive and lasting results. His approach will appeal to clinical practitioners, students, and mental health researchers alike, and should find widespread acceptance in the clinical community." - Steven D. Hollon, Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, USA

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About(TM) Depression: The Breakthrough Integrative Approach for Effective Treatment by Michael B. Schachter and Deborah Mitchell - Editorial Review - Product Description - Depression is a serious illness that can have detrimental effects, both personally and professionally. Many of the prescriptions currently available are expensive and often have debilitating side effects. More importantly, they often don't work. In his breakthrough program, Dr. Schachter offers proven methods to treat depression naturally by rebalancing and repairing out of sync and inefficient neurotransmitters in the brain. Readers will learn that safe, natural supplements and proper nutrition can directly affect brain chemistry and how to effectively control the amount of serotonin, dopamine, and glutamine in the brain--without drugs. Combining traditional treatments with new, alternative remedies, Dr. Schachter provides depression sufferers with much-needed relief.

The Prozac Alternative: Natural Relief from Depression with St. John's Wort, Kava, Ginkgo, 5-HTP, Homeopathy, and Other Alternative Therapies by Ran Knishinsky - Editorial Review - Offers a comprehensive look at St. John's wort - the most significant natural remedy for depression. -- Health Products Business, June 1999

The Instinct to Heal: Curing Stress, Anxiety, and Depression Without Drugs and Without Talk Therapy by David Servan-Schreiber - Editorial Reviews - From Publishers Weekly - Pointing to the stark statistic that more than 11 million Americans currently take antidepressants, Servan-Schreiber, psychiatrist and co-founder of the University of Pittsbugh's Center for Complementary Medicine, offers seven natural treatments for stress-related disorders. Honed by his travels as a Doctors Without Borders founder, Servan-Schreiber's holistic approach involves neither drugs nor traditional talk therapies (which he notes have never been proven effective), but relies on the brain's own healing mechanism. Combining solid scientific data, diagrams and anecdotal evidence in a highly accessible format, the author smoothly guides readers through alternative therapies, including acupuncture, dawn simulation, heart coherence and nutrition, "a field almost entirely abandoned" by today's mental health professionals, but of vital importance, he notes, to such conditions as postpartum depression and bipolar disorder. While admitting all treatments should ideally submit to a rigorous controlled study, the author laments the lack of economic interest on the part of pharmaceutical companies to study anything unpatentable. A final section, with tips and techniques on improving communication in personal relationships and integrating therapies into daily life nicely rounds out this valuable resource.

Review - The Instinct to Heal will help anyone expand their concept of health and health care to a more majestic level." -- Larry Dossey, M.D., bestselling author of Healing Beyond the Body

Written with grace and elegance, this book might well become the most important mental health landmark of this generation. -- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Ph.D., bestselling author of Flow, and Being Adolescent

Product Description - Americans seek therapy in record numbers and consume more medications than ever before, yet stress, anxiety, and depression continue to rise to epidemic proportions. People can spend years on the psychoanalytic couch without making any progress. And for many psychiatrists, the prescription-writing reflex has become almost automatic, despite the fact that benefits often disappear as soon as drug treatment stops. Standard treatments simply aren't long-term solutions.

But psychiatrist/neurologist David Servan-Schreiber, M.D., Ph.D., knows that we can cure our emotional pain. He's seen certain natural methods produce tremendous results in his clinical practice, in that of his peers, and even in war-torn regions where horrific memories can leave deep scars.

Numerous studies in prestigious scientific journals have documented the amazing benefits of these methods on anxiety and depression, but because the mechanisms through which they operate remain poorly understood, they've remained largely excluded from mainstream medicine and psychiatry. Dr. Servan-Schreiber explains how each of the natural methods in this ensemble treatment plan can help us escape the therapy/drug trap by working through the body to tap into the emotional brain's self-healing processes rather than relying on the cognitive process of language.

Weaving fascinating accounts of his firsthand experience and findings together with the research of hundreds of other esteemed scientists, Dr. Servan-Schreiber outlines a program that's becoming embraced throughout the world as a permanent cure for emotional pain. See how you, too, can tap into The Instinct to Heal.


The Peace of Mind Prescription: An Authoritative Guide to Finding the Most Effective Treatment for Anxiety and Depression by Dennis Charney, Charles Nemeroff, and Stephen R. Braun - Editorial Reviews - From Publishers Weekly - Prozac? Wellbutrin? Celexa? Talk therapy? People experiencing depression and/or anxiety (the two are often linked) can find themselves lost in the welter of available treatments. This volume provides clear, coherent help in sorting it all out. Charney is the chief of the Mood and Anxiety Disorder Research Program at the National Institute of Mental Health; Nemeroff is the chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University's medical school. Up-to-date with the latest research information, they are the perfect docents to the complex world of bio-psychology. After explaining how anxiety and depression are diagnosed, the authors offer step-by-step advice on how to handle them. They particularly stress the importance of getting diagnosis and treatment from a psychiatrist or other trained mental-health worker; the importance of combining medication with psychotherapy; the benefits and side effects of the latest medications; the differing symptoms of men and women, adults and children. They also discuss how to deal with the risk of suicide. This is surely one of the best handbooks available for accurate information about these two increasingly common "thieves of happiness."

Product Description - Anxiety and depression are among the most serious medical disorders today. According to the World Health Organization, depression causes more disabilities than any other condition. Yet 80 percent of the thirty-eight million Americans suffering from these disorders get inadequate treatment. Inspired by their work with patient-advocacy groups, world-renowned psychiatrists Charney and Nemeroff are on a mission to help everyone get the best treatment available. Charney (who spearheaded the latest National Institute of Mental Health research plan on the disorders) and Nemeroff (a top-flight researcher and clinician at Emory University) stress that any treatment must be tailored to each individual.

The Peace of Mind Prescription details the full array of medically approved drugs and therapies, highlights the latest breakthroughs, and explores future possibilities. It advocates treating most adults with a combination of psychotherapy and medication and confirms the link between serious anxiety and depression and physical diseases. The authors examine the controversial question of treating children with medication and provide vital information specific to both sexes and all ages.

The Peace of Mind Prescription arms every reader with the resources to assess the claims made for different treatments, both mainstream and alternative. It features inspiring stories about more than a dozen people who have overcome their anxiety and depression disorders. Fresh, authoritative, and empowering, the book is a prescription that can aid millions of people.


The Natural Medicine Guide to Bipolar Disorder (The Healthy Mind Guides) by Stephanie Marohn - Editorial Review - Product Description - The Natural Medicine Guide to Bipolar Disorder,an innovative and inspiring book on natural medicine treatments for a healthy mind, is about healing bipolar, not merely enduring it. Within these pages, medical journalist Stephanie Marohn explores the key contributing factors and triggers for mood disorder and profiles a range of effective, nondrug-based approaches that can truly restore health. Treating the underlying imbalances, rather than suppressing the outer symptoms (as most drugs do), leads to lasting recovery. And only by considering the well-being of the mind and spirit as well as the body can comprehensive healing take place.

Tao Cycle Therapy: Natural Happiness via Self Directed Cure for Chronic Anxiety & Depression by Sarah Shikitao-Brown and CycologyToday.com - Editorial Review - Product Description - There will be no hand-holding here. No touchy-feely stuff. We don't play around with symptoms. We go directly to the root of the problem, right down to your true animal impulses & desires. We don't cuddle with ego defenses, we break them. Maybe most people don't realize this but Modern Science Already Knows How to Cure Chronic Anxiety & Depression. But making that information widely understood doesn't exactly sell a lot of anti-anxiety drugs now does it? As far back as Freud, the answers have been widely accepted & well understood: Anxiety is an Internal Conflict between your conscious mind & your subconscious mind caused by the denial & repression of societally shunned animal impulses. These primitive impulses are your true initial feelings, the impulses that Lie Detector Tests, Body Language & Facial Recognition experts are trying to detect because These First Impulses Do Not Lie. They represent your true feelings, whether you're conscious of them or not. - CycologyToday.com

Self-Coaching: The Powerful Program to Beat Anxiety and Depression, 2nd Edition, Completely Revised and Updated by Joseph J. Luciani - Editorial Reviews - From Library Journal - Cognitive behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts and our interpretations of events greatly influence our moods. Therapists teach clients to listen to their negative internal dialogs and to use less depressive "self-talk." Clients may also be given "homework" in the form of relaxation exercises for anxiety or gradual acclimatization to frightening situations. The emphasis is on changing thoughts and actions, not on understanding their origins. Getting Your Life Back and Self-Coaching are both based on this approach. The latter, by clinical psychologist Luciani, advises readers to identify themselves as specific personality types (e.g., "Worrywarts," "Hedgehogs," "Perfectionists") and then gives specific instructions on how to change these thought patterns. The title by Wright and Basco, a psychiatrist/educator and a clinical psychologist/researcher, respectively, examines various psychological areas (e.g., thinking, action, biology, relationships, and spirituality) and invites readers to work on these areas in any order with valuable, morale-boosting checklists and examples. Getting Your Life Back is the better of the two because it discusses antidepressants and because the authors' instructions and exercises are much more thorough. Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc. -- This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist - The prevailing therapeutic value of trying to change cognitive thought processes in order to ward off depression and anxiety is not new. However, the approach in this book puts the primary responsibility for making the change on the sufferer of either condition. For those who are uncomfortable with the thought of entering therapy or using medication, the self-coaching work here may be just the ticket to greater freedom from depression and anxiety. (There are a few useful self-tests.) As an alternative to traditional psychiatric options, the self-coaching and "self-talk" prescribed in the book may work to talk oneself out of temporary mild or moderate depression. Sufferers of major clinical depression might want to combine the approach here with therapy or medication. A viable option for the self-help section of library collections.

Natural Relief for Anxiety: Complementary Strategies for Easing Fear, Panic & Worry by Edmund J. Bourne, Arlen Brownstein, and Lorna Garano - Editorial Reviews - Product Description - Natural anxiety relief without costly prescription drugs

From the Publisher - Twenty-five million Americans suffer from diagnosable anxiety disorders, and millions more struggle with occasional feelings of fear, panic, and worry. Pharmaceutical companies spend billions each year developing drugs to counteract these feelings, but the truth is that there is no "magic pill" that can make anxiety go away. Anxiety treatments that rely on medication have a high incidence of relapse when the medication stops. And the side effects of these drugs can be more debilitating than the condition they were designed to treat. An alternative and more lasting way to control anxiety is to make gentle, natural changes to your lifestyle that promote wellness in mind and body.


Healing Anxiety and Depression by Daniel G. Amen - Editorial Reviews - Product Description - Daniel G. Amen, M.D., has pioneered the clinical use of brain SPECT imaging (one of medicine's most sophisticated functional brain-imaging studies) in psychiatry. The Amen Clinics' signature brain scans have discovered that the illnesses of anxiety and depression are, in large part, the result of brain dysfunction. Additionally, they have determined that not only do anxiety and depression often occur together, here are seven distinct types of the disorders.

Healing Anxiety and Depression reveals the major anxiety and depression centers of the brain; offers guidelines and diagnostic tools to determine the specific type of anxiety and depression; and provides a comprehensive program for treating each type. The treatment includes medication, diet, supplements, exercise, and social and therapeutic support.

Based on new brain science, Healing Anxiety and Depression is a groundbreaking, practical guide to conquering these potentially devastating disorders.

About the Author - Daniel G. Amen, M.D., is a clinical neuroscientist, psychiatrist, and the director of The Amen Clinics in Newport Beach and Fairfield, California. He is the author of numerous books, including Change Your Brain, Change Your Life; Healing ADD; and Healing the Hardware of the Soul.

Lisa C. Routh, M.D., is a neuropsychiatrist with special training in neurology, general psychiatry, child psychiatry, and functional brain imaging.

Conquering Depression and Anxiety Through Exercise by Keith Johnsgard - Editorial Reviews - From Publishers Weekly - It is generally accepted in the mental-health community that exercise can be an antidote to depression. Nor is it much in dispute that exercise is beneficial to one's overall health. So it's rather odd that Johnsgard, professor emeritus of psychology at San Jose State University, insists on declaring that the connection between good mood and exercise is new. Nonetheless, his volume is a useful consideration of the evidence; it presents experimental studies and case studies that trace the role of exercise in elevating mood, as well as studies comparing the effect of exercise with other forms of treatment, such as talk therapy and medication. Getting into more specific questions, he cites evidence that aerobic and anaerobic exercise are equally effective, even for the most severely depressed. In terms of the relative efficacy of exercise and Zoloft, he offers only one study (and of only this one drug) as evidence that exercise has longer-lasting effects in elevating mood than the drug. While Johnsgard is a proselytizer, he's not dogmatic‹he acknowledges that exercise alone is not always enough to deal with depression or anxiety, that it should be used in conjunction with psychotherapy, and that in some cases it just isn't effective. The author examines how to motivate oneself to exercise, how to exercise well, and how to deal with the possible risks of exercise. Covering all the relevant issues makes this a very useful handbook for anyone suffering from depression or anxiety. Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Nature's Prozac: Natural Therapies and Techniques to Rid Yourself of Anxiety, Depression, Panic Attacks, & Stress by Judith Sachs - Editorial Reviews - From Library Journal - Sachs (The Healing Power of Sex, LJ 11/15/94) here turns her attention to alternative therapies for emotional and psychological disorders. The result is a wide-ranging resource guide written in a personal, nontechnical style and using testimonials from satisfied patients to reinforce points. What sets it apart is its concentration on natural treatments to combat conditions like depression, anxiety, and stress. Conventional practitioners may question Sachs's use of terms like the blues or a broken heart, but despite the deliberately naive terminology, the analyses are clear and sound, based on current homeopathic and medical thinking. Sachs offers a list of recognized authors and of national support organizations but also counsels readers to seek professional advice for chronic difficulties. The dictionary-like arrangement and readable style will make this book popular with most patrons, and it will also be useful for larger reference collections.?Elizabeth Braaksma, Thunder Bay P.L., Ontario Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Product Description - "Nature's Prozac" offers information on a vast range of all-natural therapies that can eliminate anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and stress. Noted health researcher and writer Judith Sachs explains easy, non-prescription ways of relieving scores of psycho-emotional problems with natural techniques and therapies.

The Food-Mood Solution: All-Natural Ways to Banish Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Stress, Overeating, and Alcohol and Drug Problems--and Feel Good Again by Jack Challem and Melvyn R., MD Werbach - Editorial Reviews - From Publishers Weekly - Best known as the "Nutrition Reporter" for consumer health publications (Alternative Medicine; Body & Soul; etc.), Challem (The Inflammation Syndrome) describes a familiar scenario: rising levels of anger, impatience, frustration, fatigue and anxiety due to minor daily irritations. Citing studies of increased violence traced to mood disorders, Challem contends that basic but highly specific diet and lifestyle modifications can lower stress levels and radically improve behavior and health. While the effects of poor nutrition on health take years to manifest, he says, such effects on mood are readily apparent, and he urges readers to notice how certain foods and beverages lead to headaches, fatigue, poor sleep, depression, compulsive behavior, panic attacks, bipolar disorder and other increasingly common conditions. His plan targets neuronutrients (vitamins and minerals needed to make critical brain chemicals) and nutrisocial factors (family, workload, environment, advertising, etc.) to boost mood. After taking a few quizzes, readers will be guided through a four-part program: supplements, diet, exercise and lifestyle. While the information is not entirely new, Challem does solidly address the hardest part of his equation‹and that's the lifestyle change itself. (Mar.)

The Wisdom of Depression: A Guide to Understanding and Curing Depression Using Natural Medicine by Jonathan G. Zuess - Editorial Reviews - Amazon.com Review - "Depression is a quest for vision; its essence is transformation," begins Wisdom of Depression, a book with a unique slant. According to psychiatrist Jonathan Zuess, "depression can be a natural and healthy response ... designed to enhance your abilities to overcome difficult emotional challenges." Half of this book describes natural therapies for mild cases, allowing the person's internal healing processes, creative life energy, and spiritual journey to flourish. Understanding the importance of dreams is essential, says Zuess: dreams may be our version of vision quests. Depressed people dream almost twice as much as other people, and enter the dream state unusually rapidly. Two other keys are learning to see with "the eyes of the soul" and expressing creativity.

Temporary depression, says Zuess, "can help us to dive deep into ourselves, to restructure our inner being, and come to a new way of understanding and living in the world." According to Zuess, depression only becomes an illness when it goes seriously wrong and doesn't resolve itself naturally, developing into major depressive disorder. In this case, he advocates a medical diagnosis, talk therapy, nutritional supplements, exposure to early morning light, and either conventional antidepressant drugs or herbal alternatives--all of which he discusses in detail. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly - To a topic about which so much has already been written, psychiatrist Zuess (The Natural Prozac Program) brings an astonishingly fresh view. His holistic approach recognizes depression as "a natural and healthy response" to "difficult emotional challenges," a "built-in healing mechanism." Unless this healing process is subverted in some way, its outcome, Zuess says, is "inner transformation," as sufferers "emerge from it stronger, healthier, and more in touch with their wise inner self." But Zuess admits that subversion is possible, and that the depressed response sometimes evolves into illness ("major depressive disorder") rather than being resolved. Only then does he advocate the powerful drugs (Prozac, Zoloft, etc.) most conventional psychiatrists offer as a first and often singular treatment. Instead, Zuess proposes use of the natural herb St. John's Wort. For all forms of mild to severe depression, he also suggests a program that includes a physical examination, exercise, sunlight, herbs, vitamins, nutrition, psychotherapy, play, dream analysis, and meditation and relaxation techniques. He also teaches an excellent step-by-step method for creative problem-solving. Offering a knowledgeable examination of the myriad treatments for the epidemic affliction of depression, Zuess's noteworthy book also delivers a brisk introduction to the holistic view of medicine in general.

The Stress Answer: Train Your Brain to Conquer Depression and Anxiety in 45 Days by Dr. Frank Lawlis - Editorial Reviews - From Publishers Weekly - In a deceptively simple style, author and psychologist Lawlis (Mending the Broken Bond, The ADD Answer, etc.), best known as a consultant on TV's Dr. Phil, offers a sophisticated overview of the latest neurological research, and how it can be integrated with cognitive therapy to treat mental and emotional disorders in ways "light-years ahead of current methods." Key is the discovery of "brain plasticity," the organ's "amazing capacity for creating backup systems that can renew lost functions"; as such, the brain can be re-wired for better functioning through exercises (imaging, breathing, "thought-stopping techniques") and lifestyle changes (setting aside 30 minutes a day to relax). Lawlis maintains a useful focus on reigning in what he calls "stress storms," when overloaded brain circuits lose their capacity for "logic and rational thinking," leaving one "stuck in a mental ditch, with the engine revving and wheels spinning, but no forward movement." Including several useful tools for self-diagnosis, in-depth looks at various kinds of "storms," and a 45-day program to apply his method, this guide to de-stressing will help those willing to put some effort into mental healing. Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Review - "Featuring the latest advances in neuroplasticity, The Stress Answer offers groundbreaking techniques that can dramatically improve the way we cope with stress and depression. Now we can find hope and joy every day in our lives." --Dr. Phil McGraw

"Dr. Frank Lawlis's new book offers a brilliant and challenging departure for understanding and treating stress and depression. Lawlis emerges as a pioneer who helps all of us learn how to change the dismal spell of depression and gain refreshing perspective on our unique potential. By following this unique guide we learn how to use our brain and design strategies to engage our true character." --John Chirbum, Ph.D., Th.D., Harvard Medical School, author of Sickness or Sin?

Healing without Freud or Prozac: Natural Approaches to Conquering Stress, Anxiety, Depression without Drugs and without Psychotherapy by David Servan-Schreiber - Editorial Reviews - Product Description - Stress, anxiety and depression are among the most common reasons for people to see the doctor. The drugs targeting these conditions are pharmaceutical bestsellers. Yet a majority of patients would like to be able to heal without taking drugs or engaging in therapy that involves talking about their problems. Dr Servan-Schreiber gathers together the answers to questions about alternatives to drugs and talk therapy. He discusses only treatment methods he has used with patients himself, methods which have been proven to work in clinical studies. Written with case histories, this book should make those who dismiss alternative medicine think again and provide those those who are looking for help without taking drugs and without talk therapy with answers.

7 Weeks to Emotional Healing: Proven Natural Formulas for Eliminating Depression, Anxiety, Fatigue, and Anger from Your Life by Joan Mathews Larson - Editorial Reviews - From Publishers Weekly - Larson, author of the bestselling Seven Weeks to Sobriety, believes that many doctors misdiagnose nutritional imbalances as psychological disorders. She argues that most people who are depressed, fatigued or addicted to food, cigarettes or alcohol suffer from a deficiency of vitamins or amino acids that is only exacerbated by drugs like Xanax, Prozac and lithium. Larson provides checklists of symptoms, possible disorders and corrective formulas along with simple but thorough explanations of how the biochemistry works. She plausibly links biochemical emotional problems with the gradual shift in the American diet over the past 60 years toward sugary, carbohydrate-laden and processed foods, which disturb the body's insulin production and deprive the brain of much needed vitamins and nutrients. The author urges readers to seek out doctors to run lab tests in order to identify possible deficiencies, blood-sugar abnormalities and food allergies. Occasionally, Larson's advice gets lost in her sales pitch for her Health Recovery Center in Minnesota ("The nutrients used at Health Recovery Center are the best quality we can find"). Still, anyone who has suffered from mental lapses, mood swings and stress will find plenty to mull over here. Author tour. (Nov.) Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal - Larson, a nutritionist and director of the Health Recovery Center in Minneapolis, contends that an imbalance of body chemicals often causes emotional problems and that making appropriate dietary changes will restore the brain's equilibrium. In addition to suggesting which foods to avoid or to eat, Larson provides lists of supplements to be taken on a daily basis and numerous questionnaires for detecting deficiencies. The long list of recommended supplements promotes extensive pill-popping, and there are regular reminders that those available from the Health Recovery Center at their 800-number are "the best quality." Larson's advice about the value of nutritional repair for depression and other emotional woes is sound, but with no clarification, her jargon is often confusing, e.g., "Symptoms indicating tyrosine or 1-phenylalanine is needed to increase norespinephine levels." The final chapter on anti-aging hormones seems somewhat out of place. Appropriate for larger public libraries. AIlse Heidmann, San Marcos, TX Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.


Natural Healing for Anxiety and Depression by Harold H. Bloomfield and Deepak Chopra - Editorial Reviews - Product Description - In this fascinating dialogue between Harold and Deepak, the nature of mental turbulence and how to approach it from a mind/body/spirit perspective is discussed.

From AudioFile - Two professional healers explain the nature of anxiety and depression, and place these symptoms within the growing field of mind/body/spirit medicine. While some of the Ayurvedic words they use to explain Eastern healing will be new to many, what the authors communicate about emotional turbulence and imbalance will be clear to everyone. There is concise advice on the use of herbal medicine and lifestyle approaches to treat emotional pain, as well as valuable distinctions between what we can and cannot control about our emotions. The authors gently encourage listeners to observe and manage their symptoms, as well as their lives. While other programs on mind/body/spirit healing may have a greater range of information, few will offer a more heartfelt invitation to explore this approach to treating emotional pain.

From the Publisher - Twenty-five million Americans suffer from diagnosable anxiety disorders, and millions more struggle with occasional feelings of fear, panic, and worry. Pharmaceutical companies spend billions each year developing drugs to counteract these feelings, but the truth is that there is no "magic pill" that can make anxiety go away. Anxiety treatments that rely on medication have a high incidence of relapse when the medication stops. And the side effects of these drugs can be more debilitating than the condition they were designed to treat. An alternative and more lasting way to control anxiety is to make gentle, natural changes to your lifestyle that promote wellness in mind and body.

The Natural Medicine Guide to Depression (The Healthy Mind Guides) by Stephanie Marohn - Editorial Review - Product Description - Depression is startlingly widespread in the U.S., with some 30 million people-nearly one out of ten people-taking Prozac to alleviate symptoms. One in four women will have clinical depression in their lifetime, as will one in eight adolescents or men. Yet even with so many on antidepressants, depression remains rampant and nobody is getting truly healed. Why?

The answer is that the true causes of depression are not being treated, explains medical journalist Stephanie Marohn. Drawing on the successful clinical results of 11 practitioners from different fields of natural medicine she shows convincingly how depression can be reversed for good, without drugs. By treating the underlying causes of depression, rather than suppressing the symptoms as most pharmaceutical drugs do, you can have lasting recovery.

So what does cause depression? Marohn identifies 16 different causes, from chemical and heavy metal toxicity to hormonal imbalances, t o food allergies and neurotransmitter deficiencies to intestinal problems and psychospiritual issues.

And what heals it? Marohn reviews a rich array of successful, nondrug-based treatment approaches including applied psychoneurobiology, chelation, allergy elimination, neural therapy, anthroposophic medicine, acupuncture, herbs, homeopathy, CranioSacral therapy, flower essences, visceral manipulation, shamanic healing, and more.

Marohn also draws from real-life patient stories to show how healing from depression works. It's all backed by science and clinical results.

You don't have to learn how to cope with depression. The uplifting message of The Natural Medicine Guide to Depression is that you can actually heal your depression through proven treatments from natural medicine.

Natural Highs by Hyla Cass and Patrick Holford - Editorial Reviews - Amazon.com Review - Boundless energy awaits anyone willing to trade their cigs, drugs, or lattés for the healthier alternatives prescribed in Natural Highs. According to authors Hyla Cass, M.D., and Patrick Holford, the first step toward bliss is eating right. In their lean yet satisfying nutrition chapter, they advocate a fairly even ratio of complex carbohydrates, proteins, and fats; plenty of water; high-potency multivitamins; and minerals. After establishing this balanced diet, those seeking to "get high" or "chill out" can select from a menu of natural supplements and substances: various stress busters, energizers, and mood enhancers that research shows can mimic--or surpass--the appealing effects of stimulants like caffeine, sugar, and nicotine or sedatives like dope, alcohol, and tranquilizers. Best of all, these good vibrations allegedly come without the typical letdowns or addictions. Historical tidbits, ample charts and diagrams, scientific data, and case studies from the authors' practices create a compelling argument for natural alternatives, including kava, ginseng, choline, and DMAE. Helpful sidebars outline the positive effects, cautions (rarely any), and recommended dosages associated with each item. Cass and Holford also delve into uplifting lifestyle enhancements like meditation, massage, dance, and sexual chemistry. Lots of reference material rounds out this guide to healthy--and legal--mood magic. -- Liane Thomas

Review - "Here's a book that should be on everyone's shelf. A valuable contribution to the art and science of feeling good, -- Gay Hendricks, Ph.D. - author of Achieving Vibrance and Conscious Loving

Natural Highs may be one of the most important books you'll ever read. -- Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. - author of numerous books, including Inner Peace for Busy People

Offers ground-breaking evidence that the ability to feel good all the time - naturally - is easily within our grasp. -- Jack Canfield, co-author of the best selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series


Optimum Nutrition for the Mind by Patrick Holford - Editorial Reviews - Product Description - How we think and feel is directly affected by what we take into our bodies. Eating the right food has been proven to boost IQ, improve mood and emotional stability, sharpen the memory, and keep the mind young. Similarly, the harmful things we take into our bodies, or anti-nutrients-including oxidants, alcohol, sugar, and stimulants-negatively impact mental health. These are the main issues world-renowned author Patrick Holford discusses in "Optimum Nutrition for the Mind."

From boosting one's memory, solving depression, and beating addictions to overcoming eating disorders, preventing age-related memory decline, and balancing out mood swings. "Optimum Nutrition for the Mind" coves a wide range of important topics and should be of interest to anyone who wants to think and feel great.

Review - Can we cope in a society where all human beings are facing massive adaptive stress? This is Patrick Holford's opening question and one which is relevant to everyone striving to keep up in a world where, thanks to advances in modern technology, we are never out of reach. People are experiencing fatigue, anxiety, mood swings, sleeping problems and the blues, all of which, this book claims, are 'the hallmarks of our age'. People who are even less well adapted become mentally ill, and many psychiatric illnesses are on the increase. So how can we stay mentally fit? This book aims to present a solution and to explain how our nutritional and biochemical imbalances affect how we think and feel. Patrick Holford is Britain's leading nutritionist and has published many, highly successful books covering a variety of health issues. This latest book is intelligently presented, with plenty of clear diagrams and illustrative case studies; it also contains a list of useful addresses and a product and supplement directory. There are many fascinating facts scattered throughout the chapters - did you know that there are as many cells in our brains as there are trees in the Amazon rainforest? - and several questionnaires which encourage readers to assess their own nutritional fitness. Holford claims that how we think and feel is directly affected by what we eat. There are, he claims, five essential 'brain booster foods' which involve balancing glucose, essential fats, phospholipids, amino acids and vitamins and minerals, and he supplies detailed accounts of the essential nutrients and how we can incorporate these into our daily food intake. The results of many studies are provided to back up the claims for the link between mental health and nutrition. This is a very comprehensive guide, dealing with a wide range of topics, including avoiding food additives, intolerances and how to boost intelligence, enhance memory and beat the blues. The book attempts to uncover the reality of mental illness and how to deal most effectively with it. It also explores the idea that we all suffer from elements of mental illness at times and can address these symptoms (insomnia, irritability, anxiety, depression and so on) by paying attention to our diets and lifestyle choices. This is a bold and confident book that promotes a greater awareness of mental health and a pro-active approach to reaching our full mental potential. Interesting and informative, it certainly contains food for thought. (Kirkus UK) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


The Brain Diet: The Connection Between Nutrition, Mental Health, and Intelligence by Alan C. Logan - Product Description - In this second, expanded edition of the best-selling The Brain Diet, Dr. Alan C. Logan incorporates the latest research on the connection between nutrition, mental health, and intelligence.

Most people today know that good nutrition and good health are related and that poor nutrition frequently leads to cardiovascular disease and cancer. Unfortunately, few people realize that it also is an underlying factor in other medical conditions, such as depression, anxiety, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases, migraine headaches, ADHD, and much more. This is startling when one realizes that researchers have found that today more than 50 percent of the vegetables in most people's diets consists of the trimmings on a hamburger and a side of fries.

The Brain Diet explains the connection between diet and mental health, as well as its importance for realizing the full potential of our intelligence. It shows how poor nutrition hinders the development of our children's intelligence and how it adversely affects mental health and success.

Despite being just 2 percent of total adult weight, the human brain demands an enormous amount of energy. An ample flow of blood is required for us to think, to reason, to create art and music, to develop technology, and to perform complex work. As The Brain Diet explains the science behind how our brains function, it also provides suggestions for a healthy diet.

Included are the basics of a brain-healthy diet, brain-healthy recipes, helpful charts, and food supplements that enhance our mental function (and how those supplements work). This revolutionary new way of looking at mental health and intelligence gives new meaning to the adage "You are what you eat."

About the Author - Alan C. Logan is a member of the Harvard Medical School's Mind-Body Medical Institute. A magna cum laude graduate from the State University of New York, he was the valedictorian of his graduating class at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. The nutrition editor of the International Journal of Naturopathic Medicine, his articles have been published in Nutrition, Arthritis and Rheumatology, American Journal of Hypertension, Medical Hypotheses, Hospital Physician, and Medical Clinics of North America.

The Mood Cure: The 4-Step Program to Take Charge of Your Emotions--Today by Julia Ross - Editorial Reviews - From Publishers Weekly - Ross, author of The Diet Cure, here offers a prescriptive plan designed to relieve a variety of ailments from seasonal disorders, stress, irritability and depression. Ross believes that many of these annoying and, in some cases, severely disabling disorders can be relieved through a change in diet and nutritional supplements. Readers are asked to first determine which of four "false moods" they suffer from: a dark cloud, blahs, stress or too much sensitivity. The survey is simple and the questions will immediately resonate with readers: for example, someone who is suffering from the blahs is likely to have difficulty focusing or require a great deal of sleep. Armed with their survey scores, readers can then turn to the appropriate chapter to learn which diets and supplements will be most helpful.Particularly reassuring are the author's detailed explanations of why she advises a particular strategy. While Ross is an advocate for nutritional supplements, she provides a sound overview for all her recommendations.
