This is the book I wish I had had when I was ill.

The book “How to Fix Depression” is unique, not only because it was written by a former sufferer, but it takes a cross-disciplinary approach to depression, and also presents exciting new scientific evidence to explain how the out-of-balance brain has the resilience to heal itself surprisingly quickly if we follow some simple health tips. This concept of Adult Brain “Neurogenesis” is still so revolutionary even some medical professionals, including specialists are not appraised of current knowledge.
When the Author, a computer engineer, experienced depression, he was frustrated by his helplessness and lack of understanding of the condition, and even came close to ending his own life - however, he set out to try to understand what might be wrong with his brain “almost as if it was a computer fault”. What he discovered so astounded (and encouraged) him that he felt compelled to publish his findings. After three years of further research to verify his conclusions, he single-handedly wrote, illustrated and published the book, born out of a genuine desire to help fellow sufferers, this sincerity shines through his work.
This book explains what depression is goes on to look at causes of depression, how to determine the severity of the condition etc., and outlines conventional treatments and alternatives. It explains natural options and many helpful things, as well as some things that are unhelpful - yet we might would turn to in times of stress to “self-medicate” without realising we are only making things worse. It is also a self-help resource - a “toolkit” and includes a rich list of other information to empower the individual to understand how to manage depression and improve their chances of recovery naturally and surprisingly quickly. (Certain things, for example, can bring relief in as little as ten minutes in some cases)
