    This is an easy-to-use guide for emotional disorders., July 13, 1998
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Nature’s Prozac (Paperback)

    This book was easy to read and offered viable solutions to a variety of emotional states such as fear, anxiety, depression, stress,etc. A wide range of alternative choices were offered such as yoga, herbal remedies, meditation and others. The author encourages the reader to use the therapy that feels the most comfortable. This book is easy to read and every time I have read it, I have always felt more hopeful and reassured. I highly recommend it.

    The Bible on anxiety type ailments, clear, short easy readin, August 23, 1998
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Nature’s Prozac (Paperback)

    The book was better than I expected I liked it because it covered many ailments and gave short , clear approaches to treating them naturally. I especially liked the forward, intro and appendix. It explained a little about emotional problems and the appedix gave tips on how to get off meds. THe book is alphabetized for a great future reference according to ailments. What to do is listed immediately following. Great book!!

    Greg (Midwest) –
    This review is from: Nature’s Prozac (Paperback)

    I’ve been looking at books on natural alternatives to Prozac, and this is the worst I’ve seen for that purpose.

    Believe it or not, the dozens upon dozens of ailments, symptoms, and therapies in this book are not organized in a logical order, but *alphabetically*. It really takes some digging to find what you need.

    For instance, to get information about “depression,” look in the D’s. On the other hand, if you want to know about “the blues,” look in the B’s. “Sadness/despondency” is in with the S’s. “Grief”–check the G’s.

    For that matter, if you’re depressed, you might also want to check out “affirmations,” “agitation,” “alienation,” “behavioral therapy,” “cognitive awareness,” “drowsiness,” “escapism,” “fatigue,” “guilt,” etc.–each in their own separate listings. You will not have the patience to do this, because this book is 500 pages long. Don’t you think they might have organized this book better?

    The title “Nature’s Prozac” suggests that this book covers natural alternatives to Prozac, such as St. John’s Wort. Discussion of these is inadequate almost to the point of being nonexistent. (St. John’s wort is mentioned in a list on p. 217 and there are three sentences about it on p. 74.)

    If you’re looking for an encyclopedia of entries on non-medical therapies, buy this book.

    If you’re looking for medically sound advice for people with depression, the best book I found at my library was Murray’s Natural Alternatives to Prozac (a bit old). I am also about to check out Bamuel’s Dealing with Depression Naturally and Knishinsky’s The Prozac Alternative.
