Format: Paperback
There are as many books written about depression, as there are symptoms of this baffling disease, particularly since the malady appears to be intensifying among all age groups from children to the elderly. In addition, several books are written about all-natural approaches for treatment of depression.

However, Dr. Schachter's book may very well be the best breakthrough book to date for the content and information related to the many types of depression that afflict more than 19 million Americans each year.

The term, 'you are what you eat' has been around for decades, but this book brings a new meaning to that phrase. Not only does the author describe and outline the characteristics that define the various types of depression, but explains in layman's terms how to conquer, without medication, this debilitating illness by eating the proper foods in the correct proportions. Nutritional deficiencies are described in detail, along with a variety of symptoms that require specific supplements.

The book is divided into two parts. Part one, 'Coming To Terms With

Depression,' has three chapters that describe various approaches for treating depression and introduce the nutritional approach. You will also discover your biochemical profile and learn how to get the professional help you need. Part two, 'How To Prevent and Treat Depression Comprehensively,' has ten chapters that focus on the use of nutritional supplements for the many emotional, medical, and mental symptoms of depression.

Each chapter ends with an overview entitled, 'The Bottom Line,' which highlights the important factors of that particular chapter.

I have used a couple of other books in the past for using supplements and amino acids to combat my depression. This book is the BEST out of those three. Dr Schachter gives a more comprehensive overview of the types of neurotransmitters and than an approach to start balancing the inhibitory and then the excititory neurotransmitters. This book contains more information about amino acids and with a better understanding about what ranges of each you could try. I have been trying this and it has been helping me. Plus there is much more in this book such as lists of medical tests, herbs, diet, toxins, hormones, light and stories.

I highly recommend this comprehensive work, which covers the issue of depression from every angle that matters. Schachter is a well-trained MD, not a cult figure or t.v. guru. He has many years of experience in treating depression and other medical conditions holistically. He doesn't oppose the use of pharmaceuticals when needed, but he sees their limitations and has a broad scientific perspective which incorporates the latest discoveries in orthomolecular medicine, nutrition and mind-body techniques.

Written in a very accessible style, this is a book you can read and absorb in small bits, as needed, and apply the information on your own or with the help of your physician, as appropriate.

This is one of the best, most helpful books in the field of holistic medicine that I've ever read.
