Healing Depression The Mind-Body Way Aims to 'Depression-Proof' Your Life
Date:7/14/2009

DETROIT, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Major depression affects approximately 17 million American adults annually at a cost of $53 billion. It is currently the leading cause of disability in the U.S. and, in recent decades, depression is striking increasingly younger age groups. Approximately 4% of adolescents develop major depression each year and by 2020, depression will be the second most common health problem in the world.

All of this need not be the case say the authors of "Healing Depression the Mind-Body Way," (John Wiley & Sons Publishing), who contend that neither the explosion of pharmaceutical antidepressants nor the newer and better talk therapy techniques are solving the current epidemic of depression.

Noting instead that the human nervous system is the best pharmacy on earth, authors Nancy Liebler, Ph.D., and Sandra Moss, M.S.P.H., urge that holistic solutions must be utilized to activate the mind-body's ability to heal itself.

"There is no one-size-fits-all cure for depression," note the authors. "You have to address each case individually and initiate a combination of natural lifestyle actions that allow the nervous system to rewire itself back to its natural healthy and balanced state. Once this happens on a consistent basis, the revitalized physiology takes over and the depression goes away."

"Healing Depression the Mind-Body Way" is the first book of its kind to apply the wisdom of Ayurveda, an ancient-yet-ultra-modern system of health, as the basis for understanding depression. Totally compatible with Western medicine, the Ayurvedic approach uproots depression by enhancing physical, mental and emotional wellness.

"We are not saying that medication and talk therapy don't work. We're merely suggesting that for sustaining results more is needed. Consider the statistics: After each major depressive episode, the risk of recurrence climbs significantly--50% after one episode, 70% after two episodes, and 90% after three episodes," says Moss. "Our approach is comprehensive and gets to the root of the problem. Its only side effect is a positive one, to promote healthy living."

"Depression has reached truly epidemic proportions in the U.S. and is taking an unbelievable toll on our families, our communities and our economy," says Dr. Liebler. "The goal of our book is to help people deal with depression in a systematic way through an easy to apply approach that can be tailored to an individual's unique manifestation of depression. Ultimately, our hope is to arm people with the knowledge to depression-proof their lives." "Healing Depression the Mind-Body Way" is available at Borders, Barnes & Noble and local bookstores from coast to coast. It's also available through Amazon.com or on their website at www.depressionproofyourlife.com. Authors Nancy Liebler and Sandra Moss are available for interview in person or on the telephone. Please call Anne Cable at Liebler Group, 313-832-4382 to arrange for an interview.
