About the Reviews

From the minitests to the nutritional/med info, this book is fabulous. At the time, we were trying to help my spouse who was not yet diagnosed with clinical depression. Reading this, I pushed him to get help. After the Amen Clinic diagnosed him, this let me eval the meds they put him on. While he was clinically depressed and behaved in ways wanting everyone around him to be as depressed as he was, it helped the rest of us to assess how we were doing. If you are around anyone with major depression, you know you have to take care of yourself so they don't, as they drown, also drown you. This book gave us the info that let us confidently take steps to move forward. It is just an awesome book!

*********************************

Practical, stigma reducing book that explains the biology behind some mental illness. He stresses the importance of the CORRECT medicine, not just any medicine to help out with severe cases. He also stresses that lifestyle changes are as important as the medicine as with any other illness and shows how to implement those changes. There is controversy regarding how accurate SPECT studies are, but I feel they are promising and should be looked into by the neurological community

*********************************

I knew there had to be more out there than just taking a SSRI and the world would be good. Just goes to prove that all brains aren't created equal. By reading and studying this book, I have seen me and others I know in this book in various parts. I have seen my brother in this book, people have discarded him and said he didn't want to change, had no will power, etc. This book, which I sent to him also, has given him hope that there is "healing" to be had for his issues.
