Because my clients have been using similar strategies for many years, I can testify to their immediate and sustaining effectiveness in correcting even the most severe mood problems. And the elegant clarity of its writing and layout make the book a pleasure to read."
Author of The Diet Cure
"Larson provides the 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 last sixty years toward sugary, carbohydrate-laden, and processed foods. Anyone who has suffered from mental lapses, mood swings, and stress will find plenty to mull over here."

This book is amazingly complete & thorough yet also concise. This a a PRACTICAL book on how to get better, not a book of theory. I love how she provides symptom checklists but also tells you where you can get lab testing done, too. I didn't use Dr Larsen's supplements, since I found them cheaper on iherb.com, which has the KRAZY-great prices on supplements! I recommend Anabol Naturals for the aminos (the blend is 99% the same as Dr Larsen's & is pharmaceutical grade.)
Dr Larsen's book provides enough information to heal yourself. However, in case you have pyroluria, I'd like to provide a few extra tips based on my experience. Because pyroluria causes zinc deficiency, you will automatically have copper toxicity. So you must realize that you will definitely go thru an uncomfortable healing crisis at some point as you detoxify excess copper. Google "copper toxicity" and you will find excellent information by Lawrence Wilson, MD. I also recommend googling "healing crisis."
In addition to this book, I also recommend "Nutrient Power" by Dr Bill Walsh. If you read these two books you will be on the forefront of the future of mental health. Incredible amounts of needless suffering is happening on this planet just because of simple nutrient deficiencies. Our bodies do not have pharmaceutical deficiencies...the human body is designed to run on amino acids, vitamins & minerals, and natural hormones, not prescription drugs! Once you heal yourself with Dr Larsen's protocols, please consider doing just a little bit to promote this information among your communities, because it truly is no less than life saving. Best wishes in your healing journey.
And.. This is the result of only starting two of the many nutritional recommendations in this book. I can't imagine what life will be like once I finish reading and implementing the rest of her suggestions. :)
I'm so grateful for this author and the important work she's done!
P.S. It's 2016 today, and this book was written in 1999. At first I was concerned about this. But after seeing a dramatic improvement in 5 days, I get that nutritional needs aren't going to change after 17 years. Try this book - I believe that it will improve your emotional health too!
Another similar book that I recommend is "Potatoes not Prozac" (it is more diet food based whereas Depression-Free Naturally is more supplement based). Between the two books I'm well on my way to feeling better.
You'll have to read the author's story of how her son passed away and why this tragic situation led Dr. Larson to her own search of what really leads a person in depression to be rid of it. I also would like to recommend "7 Weeks to Sobriety; The Proven Program to Fight Alcoholism Through Nutrition". It is just too difficult to stop drinking when there are chemical reasons that a person will hunger for a drink. This is the only book I have come across that really addresses the issues of alcoholism.
Find out why "talk-therapy" is not enough. I person cannot be labeled with statements like: He/She didn't really want to quit drinking, They are not ready to stop, etc. Nutrition has a place when it comes to balances of chemistry.
I hope someone finds this review helpful as there are more to read on Amazon's reviews. So if you are having a trauma with depression, anxiety, or alcoholism, one of these two books are worth looking at!

Cons: Sad stories in the beginning are not the best way to start an anti depressant book.Read more
