Publisher's Summary

In the past decade, depression rates have skyrocketed, and one in four Americans will suffer from major depression at some point in their lives. Where have we gone wrong? Dr. Stephen S. Ilardi sheds light on our current predicament and reminds us that our bodies were never designed for the sleep-deprived, poorly nourished, frenzied pace of 21st-century life.
Inspired by the extraordinary resilience of aboriginal groups like the Kaluli of Papua New Guinea, Dr. Ilardi prescribes an easy-to-follow, clinically proven program that harks back to what our bodies were originally made for and what they continue to need. The Depression Cure program has already delivered dramatic results, helping even those who have failed to respond to traditional medications.

Eye opener!

Would you listen to The Depression Cure again? Why?

Yes, I plan too. Because of all the good information. You will learn more about depression than you ever thought possible. I found myself saying "oh my God I do that!" over and over again. I found out more about myself and why I think or do what I do! I began seeing a difference in my depression within 1 day of listening to this book. I began simply with Omega-3 vitamins and once I felt better I worked my way up to sunny day walks. I am now socializing again and feeling the happiness I once felt. I plan on slowly getting off my depression pills within the next week because I no longer feel I need them. Sometimes all it takes is the right vitamin and the right words. This guy "gets" me more than I got myself.
