Rebuild from Depression: A Nutrient Guide Including Depression in Pregnancy and Postpartum Paperback – August 17, 2009
Oh, but you're not depressed? Every woman should read this book. Every pregnant woman will wish she had. --Nina Plank, author of Real Food: What to Eat and Why
Rebuild from Depression 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 Health
Rebuild 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." The medical community is trying to correct the ravages of diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity and yet these diseases may represent the end-result of dietary manipulation by industry. We need to address the cause of these diseases: the food we are consuming is nutrient-shallow. Rebuild from Depression helps us do just that. Dr. Amanda Rose needs to be heard by the medical professionals as well as laymen. --Robert Kotler, MD, FACS; Clinical Instructor, UCLA

This book is especially relevant if you are vegan, or even vegetarian and of childbearing age. Very helpful techniques to reduce phytic acid in plant foods if you choose to remain vegan/veg. I did not, and I feel much more confident about my diet and decision.
I do have one big disagreement with Amanda: I absolutely thrive on a vegetarian/vegan diet, while she seems to think that one needs meat, and lots of red meat, too. That kind of diet would make me feel physically ill. And also spiritually ill, because I cannot separate my food with what came before: the terrified animal walking up the dark passage to its death. SO: experiment with your diet, and find what works for YOU.
All in all this is a super book, because Amanda makes available knowledge that is hard to come by, such as the importance of soaking grains in order to receive their optimal nutrition, the importance of fermented foods, etc. Lots of this information is in Fallon and Enig's famous book, too. (NOURISHING TRADITIONS). Anyway, yes I do recommend Amanda's book. Why not? Depression colors your entire life, and sometimes if it's chronic you don't even know you're in it until you begin to get out. ( Like Plato's cave-dwellers sitting in the dark who didn't know it was dark till they saw the sun. )
