Dr. Gordon shows us how doctors and patients alike have come to depend on antidepressants, and how these drugs have disappointed so many. He then carefully links each of his seven stages to helpful suggestions for relieving depression's symptoms. Using dramatic and inspiring examples from the patients he has worked with over the years, he explains the useful, mood-healing benefits of: food and nutritional supplements; Chinese medicine; movement, exercise, and dance; psychotherapy, meditation and guided imagery; and spiritual practice and prayer. He concludes each chapter with a carefully designed Prescription for Self-Care, guidelines to help each person play an active, effective role in their own healing.

Fantastic book. Coming from a medical background I think this is a GREAT BOOK!! He is very honest about the research for both western and non-western medicine. I think everyone whether you are going through depression or not can benefit from reading this book. There are also a ton of resources listed in the back of the book in case there is a particular area you interested in exploring further. Let the force be with you.

I don't doubt the author's knowledge but unfortunately I found the writing style slow and boring, and way too much emphasis on how antidepressants are a bad form of treatment
