Healing Depression without Medication: A Psychiatrist’s Guide to Balancing Mind, Body, and Soul
The way that we see proper to help people through their psychological problems has evolved quite drastically over the years. Back in the day, the procedure of a lobotomy was thought the correct way to “fix someone.” In our current society, we now know better, yet we’ve switched our focus from manually altering the brain to doing so chemically through medicines. Jodie Skillicorn, D.O. is here to tell us that we’ve again got it not quite right. In her proof, Healing Depression without Medication: a Psychiatrist’s Guide to Balancing Mind, Body, and Soul, she explains in great detail how many doctors and psychiatrists today are quick to prescribe medication over a hint of depression.
Set in two parts, each one has its fill of references to back up her claims in the form of studies and scientific information. Being in the field of psychotherapy, I found this book very informative. I was aware of some of the facts given before reading this, such as the process of creating a drug for psychotropic medication, but other information presented was unknown to me. Each chapter presents new and exciting information. I recommend this book to not only people in the healthcare field but also to anyone suffering from depression or knowing someone who does.
