Depression: The Way Out

By Neil Nedley, M.D.

Depression is reversible. It does not have to be tolerated as a life-long condition. There is a reason for hope; there is a path to recovery — and this book can help you find that road to renewal and wellness.

Causes of depression arise from experiencing at least four of ten factors:

  • Genetic
  • Developmental
  • Lifestyle
  • Circadian Rhythm
  • Nutrition
  • Toxic
  • Addiction
  • Social
  • Medical
  • Frontal Lobe

Note that only 2 of the factors cannot be reversed. Therefore, depression is a highly treatable condition, if one is willing to do the work. For some, depression may result from a combination of genetics, circadian rhythm disturbances, upbringing and social factors. For others, depression may be rooted in a lack of dietary omega-3 fats combined with harmful addictions and adverse frontal lobe factors. This book is filled with colorful charts and lists to make important points easy to find. Thoroughly documented references. Everything comes together to help the reader identify the specific causes for his or her own condition and gives a host of new tools to aid you on your road to recovery.
