In a nationwide survey, one out of five respondents reported feeling significantly sad, bored, restless, lonely, or upset in the preceding two weeks. While those suffering from a depressive illness should seek professional care, The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Depression can help those who know they don't feel as bright and vigorous as they should. For those sufferers, small changes in diet or thinking or lifestyle may have a profound effect. For example, researchers have found that some mood disorders are related to hidden food allergies or vitamin deficiencies like inadequate thiamin. The advice steps from more than 50 alternative and conventional medical experts, including Deepak Chopra, James Duke, Caroline Myss, Andrew Weil, and Janet Zand. Features include:
-- The latest research on the most promising new mood-boosting supplements, including SAM-e, 5-HTP, St. John's wort, and PS
-- Identifies often-overlooked health problems -- from an underactive thyroid to a wheat allergy -- that may be masking themselves as depression
-- An alternative healers directory that introduces such practitioners as craniosacral therapists, intuitive healers, and music therapists
