Here, at last, for the millions who suffer from depression, is an astonishingly effective, scientifically proven method for treating and overcoming its debilitating effects without drugs. Natural Prozac defines a bold new approach that uses the body's own natural chemistry to treat and cure depression by ending the dangerous cycle of negative thought patterns and behaviors. Joel Robertson, a doctor of pharmacology and an expert in brain chemistry, shares the groundbreaking method he has been using with remarkable success for more than twenty years to train people to treat their own depression by developing a tailored program of diet and exercise to produce the chemicals needed to balance their own brain chemistry, exercising to burn up self-destructive chemicals, learning new techniques for understanding and breaking free of negative habits, adopting behaviors that produce positive brain chemistry, and using other natural methods to understand and overcome the cycle of depression.
