really liked it

Integrative health guy talks about how to fight depression through a whole-health integrated lifestyle instead of relying solely on pills. He addresses lifestyle, eating, negative thought patterns, meditation, exercise, and spirituality. He's in some senses adapting his entire anti-inflammatory diet and philosophy of health to mental health. He's very careful to define major depressive disorders versus dysthymia and does not advocate simply dropping treatment or antidepressants, but he makes a great case that we could all be much happier--and perhaps handle depression better--if we viewed emotional health (and health and general) as something we can affect and care for through a variety of methods.
