Overview

What does it take to make you feel "high"? Do you routinely reach for caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes, or sugary snacks to get you through the day? Unfortunately, the quick fixes we have become accustomed to don't work long-term, and often contribute further to the underlying problems of fatigue, depression, brain fog, and anxiety.

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, elevate 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.
