Why is this book so important right now?

Did you know that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 11 percent of all Americans over the age of 12 take antidepressants?
Women are more likely than men to take these drugs at every level of severity of depression.
Non-Hispanic white persons are more likely to take antidepressants than are non-Hispanic black and Mexican-American persons.
Of those taking antidepressants, 60 percent have taken them for more than 2 years, and 14 percent have taken the drugs for more than 10 years.
About 8 percent of persons aged 12 and over with no current depressive symptoms took antidepressant medication.
Despite the widespread acceptance of natural healing methods, from 1988-1994 through 2005-2008, the rate of antidepressant use in the United States among all ages increased nearly 400 percent.
Did you know that eight out of the 10 legal drugs known to cause violence are psychiatric drugs?
While we as individuals want effective solutions for ourselves and our loved ones, as a society we have to ask ourselves whether natural healing remedies would not only resolve the issues more thoroughly but be less likely to result in harm to our churches, schools, work places and others.
Lastly, Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq), an antidepressant that affects both serotonin and noradrenaline, is 8.3 times more likely than other drugs to be related to violent behavior.
Drug regulatory agency warnings on psychiatric drug-induced violence include:
  • Hostility
  • Mania
  • Psychosis
  • Aggression
  • Violent behavior and violence
  • Agitation
  • Homicidal ideation
If you are feeling depressed, you owe it to yourself to find out how natural healing remedies might make you feel much better without the side effects.
It’s actually easy – you just have to learn HOW!
When I first began studying natural healing 22 years ago, my main focus was natural healing approaches for the brain.
It is my prayer that my new book will be of service in teaching you how to heal depression without drugs, banishing your blues FOR GOOD!
