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 Ilardi prescribes an easy-to-follow, clinically proven program that harks back to what our bodies were originally made for and what they continue to need.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.

"Practical, straightforward, grounded in persuasive research, this book is recommended for anyone seeking an alternative approach to treating depression." (Library Journal)
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
Down to earth and practical advice, some of what I've all ready found to be true. But the medical research referred to in this book makes it easier to focus and gather the willpower to follow up on it.
This is a great book on depression It offers hope for those suffering from it I just hope it works for people as the research has shown I would highly recommend this book
When I Dr. Llardi descibe the symptoms and the cause I realized something profound.
Life long compulsive reader & lover of recorded books
I was looking for the details on this particular approach to depression and the book provided it succinctly. It is a good reference source and as such I can see myself consulting it again
This is a non-fiction book describing a very specific approach to depression
The narrator was adequate
I started to write this (the program) is just common sense. No put down intended. Many of the steps are obvious. However, often we need reminders, pointers to useful ideas to incorporate into our lives. The book lists six research supported steps to a fuller life whether depressed or not.
