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 Ilardi prescribes an easy-to-follow, clinically proven program that harks back to what our bodies were originally made for and what they continue to need.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

In trying to "keep my black dog at bay," I have gone through many books, online articles, and doctors trying to push antidepressants on to me. I avoided the pills, and really tried to make something out of the literature I was reading. But nothing stuck. Until I randomly ran across this book on the library shelf...and I'm so glad that I did. An easy to read book that really makes sense and is full of relatable material. I literally took notes on it. Also makes me question whether the direction the high-tech world is moving towards is a healthy direction. 6 stars out of 5!

Probably the best book out there on a truly effective yet obvious way to beat depression. Beats antidepressants by leagues and is looking at the TRUE roots of depression.
