Activate the inherent wisdom of your mind-body

Healing Depression the Mind-Body Way shines a new light on the darkness of depression by presenting specific antidepression strategies designed to help you unleash your innate healing potential. The time-tested advice presented in this book is based on the latest theories of modern science and the practical wisdom of Ayurveda, an ancient system of natural medicine. This unique book offers a comprehensive step-by-step program for eradicating the root of depression from the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of your being.

Through detailed questionnaires about your psycho-physiological profile and elemental imbalances, you will identify an archetype that most represents your experience with depression. Then, you will design a tailor-made health program to regain balance in your mind-body.

You will learn to undo depression by:

  • Identifying your unique manifestation of depression based on elemental imbalances
  • Using yoga, exercise, and breathing techniques that are in sync with your specific physical, mental, and emotional needs

  • Using food and meditation as medicine

Whether you are battling a depressive episode or need support coping with the problems of daily living, this book will help you awaken the "physician within" and embark on a pathway to a life of balance and renewal.

    .New hope for an enigmatic condition.

    This is the first book I've read (and I have read quite a few) that describes exactly what is going on in my mind, body and spirit when I am in the midst of my depression. The section on TM details exactly what I believe needs to happen inside of me to be freed from this terrible disease. I am excited because this book has given me new hope. What is truly amazing is how the author shows the correlation of modern science and ancient Vedic principles. Truly a gift.
