Wow. Very interesting introduction to alternative therapies for depression, anxiety, and stress. It covers EMDR and acupuncture, and a topic new to me: heart coherence. Basically your heart beat becomes coherent when you experience warm fuzzy feelings of love and affection. It has been used, for example, to help people with a history of cardiac incident to lower their stress level and regulate heart rate.
There was also extremely interesting info on nutrition-something I have really neglected in past depression treatment. Exercise is covered, too, and also, there are some chapters on improving your communication with others to decrease stress.
This has done a lot to improve my understanding of ways to treat depression and anxiety. Next, I want to read “The Anatomy of an Epidemic”, which is about the epidemic of mental illness in the U.S., and the damage that psychotropics are doing to us. Completely fascinating.
