Healing Depression Without Medication debunks the mythology of the neurochemical imbalance and alleged effectiveness of antidepressants. Dr. Jodie Skillicorn offers another way of treating depression by getting to the root causes and empowering readers to become agents of their own wholeness and healing. If you are one of the 300 million adults around the world suffering from depression and a lifetime of ineffective medications who long to flourish and thrive, this book is for you.
"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."
