Publisher's Summary

In the past decade, depression rates have skyrocketed, and one in four Americans will suffer from major depression at some point in their lives. Where have we gone wrong? Dr. Stephen S. Ilardi sheds light on our current predicament and reminds us that our bodies were never designed for the sleep-deprived, poorly nourished, frenzied pace of 21st-century life.

Inspired by the extraordinary resilience of aboriginal groups like the Kaluli of Papua New Guinea, Dr. Ilardi prescribes an easy-to-follow, clinically proven program that harks back to what our bodies were originally made for and what they continue to need. The Depression Cure program has already delivered dramatic results, helping even those who have failed to respond to traditional medications.

    "Good book!"

    This book was extremely informative. Although I have battled depression for what seems like my whole life. There was a lot of new information and "ah ha!" moments. My boyfriend and I shared a greater portion of a long drive listening to the depression cure together and found it to be a great wealth of knowledge for him to here and understand what I've been going through for such a long time. He is my volunteered amateur TLC coach. Along with everything I already know about depression and the all strategies I have put into place before reading this book, I hope the TLC protocol will be the cherry on top to finally banish this dreaded illness!

    "Worth the read"

    This book is full of very helpful advise and facts. I found myself fully immersed in the book after just 5 minutes of listening. The author covers pretty much every aspect of depression: why or why not things may work for you, what may work for you, and numerous ways to achieve a healthier mental life. The things he says sound cliche I'll admit, however the way he delivers it and explains it will leave you saying, "oh wow I never thought of it that way!"

    "practical, simple recommendations"

    I found the content in the book to be simple and practical. I found the presenter of the book to be good. there was just enough science and scientific information and examples to make it interesting and not lose the audience.

    "Great holistic approach to Depression"
    What did you love best about The Depression Cure?

    That it is Action Oriented with a specific step by step protocol that is easy to follow.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That he draws from his experience in clinical and research settings.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wouldn't recommend listening to it all at once as I think you'll get more out of it if you give yourself some time to consider each step.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. One of the best, most thorough and most well thought out books I've read on the topic.

    "Interesting And informative"

    I'm a layman in the subject of depression; a friend told me a few weeks ago that he is suffering from depression and in the search for more information I came to read this book. I understand the condition better now, though I cannot say whether the suggested treatment method is in anyway effective - makes total sense to the layman (myself) though
