Holistic Psychiatrist & Author
“If you think you need psych meds to cure your mood, think again. And read this book.”
Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Goddesses Never Age, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
" In this well-researched and empowering book, Dr. Jodie Skillicorn demolishes the “facts” surrounding depression, including the erroneous assumptions that it is caused by a flaw in the brain’s neurochemistry and that pharmaceutical cocktails are the answer. Creating her own potent healing recipe of mindfulness, meditations, guided imagery, healing movement, nutritional advice and much much more, this is a book that anyone dealing with depression cannot afford to miss."
Cate Montana, MA, author The E Word: Ego, Enlightenment & Other Essentials
"While there are dozens of self-help books on depression, Dr. Skillicorn has done a masterful job of explaining principles of neuroscience and how they work to create new neural pathways for healing depression. Neuroplasticity is the name of the game, and Dr. Skillicorn presents meticulous research about the need to look beyond “diagnose and adios” medicine to help each individual develop his or her own customized program of activities and nutrition so that the brain can heal itself organically without dangerous medication. Whether you are a doctor, patient, or seeking help for someone you care about, you will find the help you seek in these pages."
