provides real answers for reversing depression caused by common nutritional deficiencies. By giving you powerful information and practical steps to boost your awareness, it empowers you to live a happier, healthier life! --Jan DeCourtney, CMT; Co-author, Recapture Your HealthRebuild from Depression
is going to be a very important book. Its dissection of the role of diet and nutrition is well-researched and an eye-opener. Medical science is beginning to give more value to the study of diet and particularly the role of nutrients in maintaining that delicate bodily balance called health. It may be that increases in depression can be tied to our deteriorating eating habits in which "manufactured" food is progressively displacing "grown food."
