Very informative, no pdf's

This audio was very informative, gave very specific directions on balancing and uplifting your moods, using herbal supplements. I did find I didn't want the audio to end, because of the interesting data, studies and information given. If you are looking for ways to be happier without prescriptions, sleep better, have more energy during the day, this audio has some very interesting findings. When taking the questionnaire, which is found on the moodcure website, I found I fit into many different categories. Does this mean I need about 10 different supplements? A lot of talk of Amino Acids, 5-htp, Sam-e and there affect on your body and who specifically, based on how a bottle makes you feel, which is individually better for you based on your body chemistry. Her voice is pleasant, an easy listen. The reason I did not give this audio 5 stars, is because there are no accompanying PDF's, the audio is not broken into chapters on my audible player, I have no idea where to go back and re-listen, especially after taking the moodcure questionnaire and now need to see what supplements to use. There are so many supplements, tips and advice, I just knew there would be a pdf. It is interesting enough to consider owning the book for reference and for need, because driving I found myself constantly needing to write things down. Again a 10 hour audio book and I will need to re-listen to get the supplements correct. Please forgive my first audible review.

Astoundingly Life Changing

Where does The Mood Cure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

#1.
This book changed my life in only TWO DAYS! From then on it has just got better and better. I feel alive again. 5 long years of feeling lethargic, moody, out of control and constantly crying for no reason ! I could feel the real me inside but I felt like I just couldnt lift off what was ailing me? I was determined to find the cause and here it is, contained in this book.

If you are having problems with anxiety, anger, depression, stress or anything mood related don't just put it down to "oh thats just the way I am" or "its because of...." It could very well be just a chemical imbalance in your brain that can be fixed with supplements and some simple diet changes and Dr Ross helps you every step of the way. The supplements themselves are miraculous in restoring your moods making life happiness.

So get busy and READ THIS BOOK !

What did you like best about this story?

It is very reader friendly. She starts out with a quiz to help you find out what category you fit into, if not all of them !!!! Then provides detailed explanation on why you feel like you do and what you can do to improve your situation by suggesting supplements and simple dietary changes.

What does Coleen Marlo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Coleen read the book beautifully but it seemed her voice was a bit robotic, like it had been run through a voice synthisiser.

Any additional comments?

I hope this book helps you the way it has helped me and thousands of other people. Thankyou Dr Ross.

I feel great!

Any additional comments?

I wasn't even able to get past chapter 3 before I started feeling great. Sometimes emotional issues are as a simple as chemical imbalance in the brain. I immediately ran out and purchased the recommended supplements based on the results I got back from The Mood Cure's mood assessment, and I was feeling better within 12 hours. I don't consider this a placebo effect. I believe it was an authentic mood boost. I have Attention Deficit Disorder and prefer not to take medication. I also wanted to break my morning coffee habit. I'm a morning person, but have been waking up feeling exhausted. After taking everyday supplements, I feel better than I have in months! I'm waking up refreshed, my mind isn't racing, I'm alert all day, and managing stress much better. My peers and family are telling me I have a glow. I'm so happy I trusted my instinct on this book. It gave me knowledge about how the brain and emotive engines work and what is needed to keep them performing efficiently. Don't waste money on therapy, meds, and too many self-help books and other hoaky remedies. Try natural remedies recommended from this book first!

Not ideal for audio format!

Would you try another book from Julia Ross and/or Coleen Marlo?

Julia Ross definitely. Coleen Marlo: not if I can avoid it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Non-fiction

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator sounded like an automated voice. To the extreme that it actually made me laugh out loud. It's lucky I wanted this information because if this was a work of fiction I would have thrown in the towel.

Was The Mood Cure worth the listening time?

There are a number of quizzes, lists, and areas where you skip chapters if the info doesn't pertain to your symptoms. This doesn't work well in audio format. Also- the audiobook chapters do not correlate with the chapters in the book. The author tells you to skip to say, Chapter 5, but it is not the correct chapter.
I listened to get an overveiw but had to order the print version of the book.

Too Complicated

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I really wanted to like this book and it's solutions. But self-diagnosis/self-medicating is FAR too complicated. My head was reeling at the end. If the point of listening to this book is to make me feel like I'd have to go to this doctor myself to make head or tail of this cure, then it succeeded. It shouldn't be marketing itself as something you can just figure out.

Would you ever listen to anything by Julia Ross again?

Probably not.

Which character – as performed by Coleen Marlo – was your favorite?

Nonfiction...

Was The Mood Cure worth the listening time?

No.

Fot Every American Who's Ever Eaten a Donut.

This is an essential read for every American who's been bullied by American conformist-"culture". Drop the dough and get your diet straight.

Thank you Julia Ross! You're a beautiful person.

Changed My Beginning

Where does The Mood Cure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is an action plan if it's right for you. I followed the program and cannot begin to say how amazing I feel.

What other book might you compare The Mood Cure to and why?

This is really the first book on Amino acids I've ever read.

Have you listened to any of Coleen Marlo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First one.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Burn Big Pharma! What you need to know and what you aren't being told! Heal thyself!

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book to anyone who has depression or other Mood issues. The answer may be in this book. The information and implementation started changing my mood within days. It's been about a month - and I'm feeling great!

This Book Made Me feel worse.

To keep things short, I've tried almost everything described in the book. The most beneficial aspect for me was information about the diet. Although, my mood has actually gotten worse since implementing the information and suggested amino acids. I find that I'm more edgy now and actually have feelings of hopelessness, something I have never experienced before. I have no doubt the book has worked for some, however, I do think the recommendations outlined should not be applied without medical supervision.
