Natural Highs: Supplements Nutrition and Mind Body Techniques to Help You Feel Good All the Time

Overview

We all need a boost now and then. Sometimes just a cup of coffee or tea will do the trick. Maybe a chocolate bar or a soda to get over the afternoon slump. Or perhaps a cocktail or a cigarette to help relax at the end of the day.

While many people automatically reach for chemical crutches (both legal and illegal) to alter or enhance mood, all these substances have unfortunate side effects and do nothing to rectify the underlying problems. Several can become addictive and set up ...

Overview

We all need a boost now and then. Sometimes just a cup of coffee or tea will do the trick. Maybe a chocolate bar or a soda to get over the afternoon slump. Or perhaps a cocktail or a cigarette to help relax at the end of the day.

While many people automatically reach for chemical crutches (both legal and illegal) to alter or enhance mood, all these substances have unfortunate side effects and do nothing to rectify the underlying problems. Several can become addictive and set up a cycle of craving and withdrawal that may increase fatigue, stress, and depression.

In Natural Highs, two leading authorities in psychology and nutrition present a prescriptive breakthrough program based on nutritional supplements, herbs, and simple mind/body therapies that will help to increase energy, sharpen the mind, improve mood, relax the body, and beat stress. Their remarkable research shows how to formulate the perfect "brainfood" to improve how we think and feel, resulting in a greater sense of connection and joy in everyday life-the natural high.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This provocative book asserts that what many people seek from the "highs" offered by illicit drugs, as well as everyday stimulants like caffeine, is actually a feeling of optimum alertness, connectedness, and freedom from stress -- and that this state can be achieved naturally. According to authors Dr. Hyla Cass and Patrick Holford, it's all a matter of balancing brain chemistry through diet, the use of herbs and supplements, and some lifestyle changes. The nutritional and lifestyle recommendations may not be groundbreaking -- the authors advocate omega-3 fatty acids and yoga, among other things -- but the extensive treatment given to supplements, from SAMe to tryptophan, makes this an important addition to any bookshelf. It offers an insightful look at brain chemistry, the ways in which people try to alter it -- both naturally and artificially -- and what readers can do to optimize it without the risks of chemical substances.

    It's always off my bookshelf

    Once again I reached for Dr. Cass' book today. I've had it for about six months and it hasn't sat closed for any two weeks in a row. I've tried several items listed and found that some worked and some didn't. One of the greatest joys is replacing a pill or supplement with real food. I'd rather eat fish than a tablespoon of fish oil! It took time to realize that the book is written for a general audience, not just for me. Now I'm working through her suggestions methodically, patiently weeding out those that aren't right for me and keeping those that are. For instance, I discovered that high potency vitamin B 'complete' supplements work well with SAMe. On the other hand, valerian only caused bad dreams. Used in conjunction with Chris Carmichael's 'Food for Fitness' and some great web resources, I find that I have both high energy and a great attitude towards life and my health.
