BRAVO to Dr. Nancy Liebler and Sandra Moss for the most practical, yet in-depth, how-to-book I have read on the application of natural healing modalities for depression. I especially appreciate the direct language used in explaining the application of Ayurveda for mental health. The authors did not insulate themselves through the language of Ayurveda, as so often I have seen in other books of that discipline, but wrote in undertandable language to make the book most readable for the general audience. As a Psychologist for almost 30 years, I can assure you this book is on the top of my list for recommended reading to my patients. It is one we all want to have on our coffee table as a constant reference.

I read this- or most of it- while standing in a bookstore. I have not slept without sleeping pills for two years. I was feeling sort of frantic after two particularly anxiety filled nights and went to the bookstore to unwind.

I read this book and put tiny amounts of it into practice that evening. I fell asleep early and fast and without drugs and only woke up once because I was LAUGHING!! I don't know, but I am sipping my hot water and feeling mighty fine about it. Certainly worth looking at!

Format: Paperback
As a therapist, I am always looking for books that will help my patients find new insights about themselves and better ways to deal with toxic stress in their lives. Dr. Nancy Liebler and Sandra Moss's book is an ideal resource. It is a very readable application of the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda medicine to the problem of depression. I found their delineation of the three types of depression and the subsequent discussion of particular healing approaches to each one, illuminating. Beyond that, the authors offer many extremely useful suggestions about ways to create inner peace and well being by integrating Yoga, proper breathing techniques, meditation and diet. This book is not only about healing depression, it is about living a better life!

I do not suffer from depression, but found this book to be interesting and insightful. It offers many simple techniques for adding mindfulness and balance to your life. Reading this could help you avoid depression, stay healthy, and enable you to understand and perhaps guide others who suffer from the disease. I have been a fitness instructor for 30 yrs, including yoga teaching for 10, and found all the info on fitness, yoga, and nutrition to be accurate and current. I will recommend this book to my colleagues, as well as students and clients without hesitation. And will refer to the many dog-eared pages often.

I ordered this book few months back. Very informative, even bought copy for friend. One of a few books that changed my life. I work in high stress accounting dept. Work stress combined with crashing economy in 2008-2009 was REALLY getting to me! Chiropractor was re-aligning my spine but stress still impacting my body on daily basis even with regular exercise, which I did not understand prior. This book helped me to changed my view, opened my eyes and helped me to really tune into my body. If you are at that point - read this book & practice it regularly at first, once you get accustomed and tuned in, you can adjust routine as needed.

Format: Paperback
Nancy Liebler and Sandra Moss have collaborated to write a prescription for the malaise affecting millions of us in these most trying times. Healing Depression The Mind-Body Way, is a practical guide to creating happiness and warding off the clouds of depression and anxiety. The book provides a useful "how-to" --- following some very basic and common sense steps that are based on practical medicine and universal truths and methods that have been developed and vetted over centuries. The mind-body way isn't gimmicky, mystical nor doctrinal. Rather, it is a step-by-step guide to mental and physical health and well-being, written for the masses. This is a must read for anyone interested in the subject or desiring to overcome the chains of depression.

If, like me, you struggle with depression, you can do much better than this book.

First and foremost, I must say that I find the authors' endorsement of the Transcendental Meditation religious-organization/movement/cult to be most disappointing.

Transcendental is merely one of many forms of mantra meditation. Most can be learned for free via the local library and the internet, but, if you want to learn the "TM technique," your experience will essentially amount to paying a ridiculous amount of money for a "special" mantra. There are many "free" forms of mantra meditation out there, and the claim that mantra meditation is the best sort of meditation is certainly debatable. The authors of this book, instead of teaching you anything about meditation themselves, basically tell you to "go learn Transcendental Meditation." The authors tell you that Transcendental Meditation is the only type of meditation that has been extensively scientifically evaluated for efficacy...but this is simply not true. Given the authors' bias towards this religious movement...I cannot help but distrust everything else that they say for fear of some ulterior motive or agenda.

Next we have the Yoga portion of this book. I expected the authors to explain many more yoga postures, but they didn't. They explain (w/ nifty diagrams, i must say) two cycles of yoga postures: sun salutation and moon salutation. Cool. I'm no expert on yoga, but...since "yoga" is supposed to be one third of this book's method for creating happiness, I expected a bit more. Actually, a lot more.

With meditation and yoga down, we have one more to go: Ayurveda. Ayurveda is...a "traditional" (alternative) medicine native to India. Now, I'm definitely no champion for the western pharmaceutical sort of health care...
