About the Author
Dr. Mary Ann Block is a top-selling author on family health and international expert on the treatment of ADHD symptoms without drugs. Her medical approach is to look for and treat, whenever possible, the underlying causes of the problem instead of using drugs to cover the symptoms. Dr. Block found that many of her patients had been prescribed psychiatric drugs by other physicians. But after conducting a thorough examination, Dr. Block found undiagnosed medical conditions that, when treated, resolved the psychiatric symptoms. These patients did not need psychiatric drugs which carry potentially dangerous side-effects. Dr. Block is the author of the top-selling books, No More ADHD, 10 Steps to Help Improve Your Child's Atttention & Behavior Without Drugs, No More Ritalin and No More Antibiotics: Treating Ear and Respiratory Infections The Natural Way, The ABC`s of Raising Great Kids, and Today I Will Not Die which chronicles how she helped her mother survive terminal lung cancer in 1991. Dr. Block chairs The Health and Empowerment Committee for The National Foundation for Women Legislators. She has served as a peer reviewer for the Agency for Health-Care Policy and Research and the American Academy of Pediatrics for the diagnosis and treatment of ear problems. She is a state of Texas Family Practice Preceptor and served on the faculty as assistant professor at the University of North Texas Health Science Center/Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth, Texas Dr. Block has been featured on the CBS news show, 48 Hours and The Montel Williams Show and interviewed on CNN News, MSNBC's Scarborough Country, The Joni Lamb Show, The Ricki Lake Show, NBC`s Home Page, Fox Network News, The Today Show in New York and is a regular contributor on TBN, and FamilyNet's Your Health with Dr. Richard Becker, as well as being quoted in such magazines as Better Homes and Gardens and radio and newspapers across the country.

No one should think about taking antidepressant medication (AMs) without first getting the facts. I believe Dr. Block's book does an excellent job of supplying the facts. She understands the harmful side effects of AMs, which quite frankly, are being doled out (far too quickly) by physicians who are either in a hurry or who are too lazy to do a complete history and physical exam to get to the underlying medical cause(s) of the person's symptoms. As she clearly stresses in her book, these days, doctors simply write a prescription for a so-called "easy fix" drug that the patient doesn't need -- which does more harm than good.
In this book, Dr. Block demonstrates her passion for real patient care, and shows the benefits of executing a more intelligent diagnostic approach. She highlights the safety and effectiveness of alternative treatment plans, and leaves the reader feeling empowered through the right kind of information. She also deals with all of the misinformation surrounding depression, while uncovering the terrible and shocking downside of taking AMs.
This book does a fantastic job of showing (as its title states), "Just Because You're Depressed Doesn't Mean You Have Depression." If anyone has questions or concerns about depression, this book also does an excellent job of answering your questions, providing additional resources and extolling the advantages of using a non-drug approach to health and healing (especially concerning depression). If you care about your health (or the health of a friend or loved one), this book is definitely one to add to your library.
