Web-based seminar on natural treatment of depression

unstuck bookDr. James Gordon, a renowned psychiatrist and integrative medicine pioneer, is teaching a four-part online series beginning November 18th on treating depression naturally. Dr. Gordon is the author of Unstuck, which is in my opinion the most complete resource on the holistic treatment of depression available.

A graduate of Harvard Medical School and the founder and director of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington, DC, Dr. Gordon has been helping people to recover from depression without drugs for almost 40 years. If what you’ve been learning on The Healthy Skeptic about depression and antidepressants rings true, you’ll love Dr. Gordon’s work.

The web-based series, called “A Natural Approach for Treating Depression,” will include video lessons focused on four of Dr. Gordon’s main themes to treating depression and is based on Dr. Gordon’s treatment program, which he developed and has been teaching around the world for almost 40 years.

Dr. Gordon’s program asserts that prescription antidepressants are often ineffective and create significant side effects. He teaches natural self-care techniques, such as relaxation exercises, physical exercise, proper nutrition and others, that have been proven to successfully treat depression and its symptoms. The program allows the patient to take an active, effective role in their own healing. The series and its related downloadable resources for participants are free.

If you or anyone you know is suffering from depression and could use some extra guidance, I would highly recommend this program. Dr. Gordon writes with clarity, compassion and decades of firsthand experience in treating patients with depression. Although I haven’t yet heard him speak or teach, I can say with confidence from reading his book that his online program will be an invaluable resource to those struggling with depression.

    That is indeed unfortunate. I didn’t “attend” the seminar myself, but I did hear from Troy as well and I have read Dr. Gordon’s book – which I think is the best book available on the subject. I hope the class improves and becomes more substantial. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    It seems that the rest of the program will improve and it just started off badly…I’ve spoken with Troy and am quite impressed with his dedication…and it seems clear that their intentions are quite honorable!!

    I’m very glad to hear this, Gianna.  I corresponded with Troy as well and he seems very committed to the program and getting this message out.  I have also been very impressed by Dr. Gordon’s writing and his approach to healing depression holistically.  I’m sure he has a lot to offer through the online class.

    what is your thought on use of light (I have a “light book”) for depression.  I live in New Hampshire, where the winter days are cold and gray.  This past fall I started taking cod liver oil and am wondering if the light I use for SAD would be too much if I was using cod liver oil.

    I don’t think you have to worry about vitamin D overdose living in New Hampshire in the winter taking a moderate dose of cod liver oil and using a light box, presuming you’re sticking to the recommended doses for each.
