Overview

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 Ilardi prescribes an easy-to-follow, clinically proven program that harks back to what our bodies were originally made for and what they continue to need.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

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, January 2015
“[Ilardi] helps us think about how mental illness is not what many think it is (mental or moral weakness) and how popular approaches for treatment (medication and some alternative treatments) need to be better understood.”
