Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

Ross, author of The Diet Cure, here offers a prescriptive plan designed to relieve a variety of ailments from seasonal disorders, stress, irritability and depression. Ross believes that many of these annoying and, in some cases, severely disabling disorders can be relieved through a change in diet and nutritional supplements. Readers are asked to first determine which of four "false moods" they suffer from: a dark cloud, blahs, stress or too much sensitivity. The survey is simple and the questions will immediately resonate with readers: for example, someone who is suffering from the blahs is likely to have difficulty focusing or require a great deal of sleep. Armed with their survey scores, readers can then turn to the appropriate chapter to learn which diets and supplements will be most helpful.Particularly reassuring are the author's detailed explanations of why she advises a particular strategy. While Ross is an advocate for nutritional supplements, she provides a sound overview for all her recommendations.

Format: Taschenbuch
Tja, 2 Jahre lang musste ich leiden..bis endlich ein Arzt die Ursache meiner ganzen Symptomen und Beschwerden fand. Habe Schilddrüsenunterfunktion und Progesteronmangel. Die Autorin des Buches "The mood cure" beschreibt sehr ausführlich, alles was uns krank machen kann und wie man die ganzen Mängel behandeln kann.. und das Ganze ohne Chemie. Der Schlüssel: gründliche Ursachenforschung und naturidentische Substanzen.

Serotonin und/oder Tyrosinmangel, Schilddrüsenerkrankungen, Östrogendominanz, Progesteronmangel usw usw. (die Liste ist lang Leute, sehr lang) können Depressionen, Ängste, Zwangsgedanken, sogar Psychosen hervorrufen. Und man sollte auch bei psychischen Symptomen nach der wahren Ursache forschen und dies gezielt und rechtzeitig behandeln, sonst kann das Ganze nur schlimmer werden. Psychopharmaka sind hier nicht die Lösung. Das wissen aber leider sehr wenige Ärzte.

This book is about the treatment of depression, anxiety, irritability and stress with nutrient supplements plus an individualized diet, in a DIY trial and error approach. The promises seem grand and too full-bodied to me, but the therapy definitely worked for my depression and eating disorder. Within the dose limits and with pharmaceutical quality supplements, this DIY therapy is safe. If it doesn't work, you can still have the expensive diagnostics by an orthomolecular doctor to see whether orthomolecular medicine can help you.

I found this book by chance and was amazed at all the information contained. This is a very good self help book if you have emotional problems and don't want to end up feeling like you're doomed to be uncurably depressed, hyperactive or just plain crazy. Find out why you may feel the way you feel and then "help" yourself! May also give insight to parents with children with ADS or similar problems.

HASH(0x8dfe72ac) von 5 Sternen Information in this book saved my life, literally. 25. Juli 2010
Von JAF - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In March of 2008 I had to let my insurance go. I am self employed and the cost had skyrocketed. As I knew the end was coming I tried to prepare by reading about and using holistic treatments as opposed to the five prescriptions that I was going to have to do without. I was diagnosed as severely clinically depressed in the late '90s. The very first prescription that I was ever given was one for 60mg., yes 60mg, of Prozac. The doctor(s) wanted to hospitalize me but I refused, opting instead to see the psychiatrist every other day....the first week was every day. I managed to get through this first year without killing myself and it is all just a blur. There were side effects to the drug that they "treated" with more drugs. I gained weight, lost weight, slept for 8 months, went through my entire life savings, etc., etc., you get the picture. I was a total mess. As time progressed I noticed that the drugs stopped working as effectively as they did in the beginning so I'd get switched.... I have it all written down somewhere but I think the last prescriptions I filled were for Wellbutrin & Zanyx.... plus sleeping pills.... I can not recall all of their names right now....I think I've blocked them out at this point because I simply do not need them or take them any longer.... and I feel SO SO SO much better than I ever did while on the drugs. Seriously, a million times better. I still have days that aren't pretty, just like I imagine everyone does, but I can manage those days by taking an extra dose of SAM-e or one extra tablet of 500mg. L-Tryptophan at night.

Another reviewer states it correctly here, this is not an overnight cure. However there are amino acids that even I felt better within one hour of taking them even while still a complete mess. I got The Mood Cure and The Diet Cure by Julia Ross and they both are invaluable to me. I learned so much from them about how things work in our bodies and what the cause and effect of what we put into our bodies is and what is happening when we are depressed or even when you have overwhelming urges to eat something like chocolate or carbs..... migraine headaches (which I have had) can be managed with the right combination of these amino acids, vitamins & minerals. I have never been anorexic or bulimic but those are also addressed and treatable in these books. Weight gain, weight loss, adrenal gland failure....it is all in these books. All completely treatable with the holistic means she tells you about in these books.

Dr. Ross spells it out beautifully in these books. You can see yourself and read about exactly what has happened to you right in these pages. It is such a wonderful experience to know that you can get better. I did. I promise you can as well. She is honest and says that she can not treat two things by holistic means alone, those are bi-polar disease and schizophrenia which Dr. Ross says must be treated by prescription medicine but can be greatly helped with holistic treatments in conjunction. With those two aside you can figure out how to treat your severe clinical depression like I did with a trial and error approach to the suggestions she makes in the books.

By the way, I really want to emphasize how important it is for you to take it extremely seriously how careful you are to get off of your prescription meds before you jump into "straight" holistics!! You could really crash and do serious harm to your psyche and also to your physical body if you are not careful. This is how I did it: I stayed on the meds while I learned to incorporate the aminos, etc. I would take a whole dose one day, 1/2 the next...I did this for one whole month. The second month I would do two days of 1/2 doses, then one whole....it took me several months, maybe 4, to completely get off of the prescription meds so please please be careful. You can have a severe set back if you just stop or stop too soon.

With that said I also incorporated the aminos into my day as I was weening off the scrips. One of the great things about natural treatments like amino acids is that once your body has been refueled and doesn't need any more, say 5-HTP, or L-tryptophan, then you will get a MILD headache so you'll know you don't need that any more. But keep it, because if you have a bad life experience (like a mate dying or a family member, etc.) then you can understandably need to use them again until your supply is built back up.

It took me until now from a start in March of '08, so 2.5 years, to be completely certain that I no longer need to take any of them! I still take a small (for me) dose of 500mg L-Tryptophan at night and occasionally I'll take a 200mg of SAM-e in the a.m. but for the most part I am strictly maintenance now....but the first year I was taking 6000mg, yes, six thousand mgs per day of L-Tryptophan, high grade pharm powder, plus L-tyrosine, and a few others. I feel that my adrenal gland was just completely shot and I know I was right because I am the living proof of it now. You will FEEL what is right for you as you try different suggested things in the book. Complete relief does not happen over night but enough relief to function can come within an hour of taking the right amino, just as they tell you in the book.

I've waited this long to review the books because I wanted to really get to the point where I feel "cured" and I do. I feel very well. My energy level is good, my moods are mostly even and level headed, I sleep very well and I have an appetite for wonderful healthy foods.

The only other thing I can tell you that I have used to get where I am now is Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) and their opinions on whole foods & cod liver oil....invaluable. Also, they are big believers in all organic, including meat, and raw organic dairy. Which I also advocate.

So, good luck. My very best wishes for your improved health and happy life. I know it is possible. I'm living proof.

HASH(0x8d68bed0) von 5 Sternen Skeptic Becomes Scientist Becomes Convert 7. Januar 2005
Von Jean L. Lukens - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am a total skeptic. I've been a successful psychotherapist for 25 years. I've had mood difficulties my entire life and have consumed the usual therapies, medications and hormone replacement therapies and remedies without a "cure". What was most helpful about this book was the distinction Ross invites you to make between emotions caused by real events and thoughts versus "false moods" that are physiological states. Psychotherapy doesn't help correct physiological imbalances as efficiently as seeking a physiological remedy. Next, with a simple quiz, she divides these mood states into four basic catagories and invites you to locate yourself into a catagory or two based upon the prevalance of certain symptoms. So far, this is like a detective story with you and your symptoms as the main focus. The plot thickens: She educates you about the nature of the physical imbalance implied by your answers and explains the action of the recommended nutritional supplements aimed at your specific hypothetical problem. She tells you how to know by your response whether it is working and how to recognize when you've gone too far and should stop the intervention. Well, I was desperate. I decided to follow her regimen to the letter. Surprise! Her predictions were absolutely true to my own responses. If she says you can feel a supplement start to work in 10 minutes, then that is what it does. If she saya it takes months, then it does. BUT IT WORKED for me. It is 18 months since I first followed her advice and after a year or more of no supplements, some symptoms began to return. I'm not kidding when I tell you that the results are just as dramatic this time. I'm sold on her advice. One important result of reading this book is that I've learned to differentiate between when I am having a physical problem and when it is an emotional problem. Once you know this, you are more adept at choosing whether to seek psychotherapy, nutritional therapy, or hormonal therapy to address your psychological symptoms. No kidding, this book has set the ground work for me to have a similar quality of life in my post menopausal years as I had as a healthy young person. It restores hope because it applies logic and science. Another helpful thing she said that seems obvious in retrospect is that the "minimal daily requirements" are just that: Minimal to Prevent Symptoms of Disease. Think about it. These guidelines do not spell out "Optimal Daily Requirements" for good health. One note of caution: If you follow her advise too haphazardly or don't stick to the regimen, you will have less than a dramatic response and you will quickly relapse. Really do it. Take the so called "megadoses" for a month or two, while observing the safety precautions she spells-out and you will be amazed. I was. My body told me that I was on the right track almost right away so my initial misgivings about taking supplements were quickly allayed by the obvious better energy and health I was achieving. When I began, I had been so exhausted that for many years, even mild exercise left me feeling wiped out. Now, I am very active again, my depression and anxiety is minimal and I am now rebuilding my physical fitness. I did check out the assertions she makes with other articles in her subject areas, and although I am a lay person, her advise does appear to check out with mainstream research. Good luck! I've reread this book 5-6 times and am still consulting it.

HASH(0x8d68be10) von 5 Sternen This is what your doctor should know ...and practice! 12. September 2013
Von A. T Mauro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
19 years ago I found myself in dire straights. I was clinically depressed. I was promptly prescribed a popular anti-depressant and I managed to climb out. But I didn't stay out. Subsequently I've had years of going on and off meds, side effects, trying all kinds of alternative therapies, etc. Frankly, I had lost all hope until I learned what's in this book.

Here in a nutshell is the supplemental strategy:

There are four major neurotransmitters:

Serotonin
Catecholamines (norepinephrine)
GABA
Endorphin

When we have deficiencies in any of these neurotransmitters, we start having emotional and mental problems.

Serotonin
Serotonin is the number one neurotransmitter deficiency. (That’s why it’s listed first.) It’s the feel-good chemical that makes us happy, hopeful, self-confident, and outgoing. It stops the worry and turns on enthusiasm.

Oh, and guess what is the number one enemy of serotonin? Caffeine. That’s right, caffeine depletes serotonin. So you might want to rethink that latte or cup of green tea.

Serotonin converts to melatonin as the sun goes down, so if you’re low in serotonin, you won’t be able to create enough melatonin — which means you won’t sleep well. If you suffer from insomnia, serotonin may help you.

Catecholamines
Catecholamines (the number two most common deficiency) are the brain chemicals that make us feel energized and give us the ability to concentrate. It’s caused by a deficiency in catecholamines. Need that cup of coffee to get going? You’re most likely low in catecholamines. And if you’re self-medicating with coffee or chocolate, you’re doing damage to your serotonin levels.

GABA
Stressed out? Can’t relax? You might be low in GABA, the third most common deficiency. GABA is a natural tranquilizer and muscle relaxer.

Endorphins
Most people know about endorphins from exercise — the “runner’s high.” Endorphins give us the ability to enjoy our lives and experience pleasure. When we are in pain, endorphins rush in to flush and flood us with pleasurable feelings.

Simply find out what deficiencies you have in descending order and treat accordingly with 5-HTP (Serotonin), DLPA or L-Tyrosine (Catecholamines), GABA (GABA), Exercise (Endorphins).

Note: if you're like me and you mainly have the first two deficiencies (Serotonin & Catecholamines) you'll want to kick the caffeine habit first since you'll likely run into a whole host of problems while taking 5-htp and still drinking coffee, even if its small amounts. While you're taking 5-htp it's raising serotonin, but you'll still be depleting your dopamine/norepinephrine supply, therefore still likely remaining somewhat depressed with little progress towards feeling better. Taking a good dose of DLPA (500-750mg) in the morning should allow you to stop drinking coffee (with little or no withdrawl) and also return your catecholamines to normal levels.

Now, why couldn't my doctor had told me this years ago, instead of giving me an antidepressant that only worked on just ONE of the problems?

HASH(0x8dfe79cc) von 5 Sternen Amazingly good introduction 4. September 2008
Von Mother and Neuro-therapist from Oxfordshire - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a truly outstanding book and is intended to help people suffering from real, deep and intractable emotional and mental problems.

Julia Ross is a true pro, working at the front line of mental health care for several decades. This is a book that brings together her hard won knowledge with that of many, many other experts in the field. There is a also a decent amount of scientific research at its core.

Compared with the extrememly poor care offered by the average clinical psychologist or psychiatrist (they essetially offer only drugs or cognitive behaviour therapy) this book heralds the beginning of a revolution in mental health care: at last some people are beginning to recognise that there is a REASON why you (or a friend or relative) is suffering such serious problems with mood, emotions and behaviour. At last there begin to be real solutions which are wholistic and effective.

Julia covers all the main issues - anxiety, depression, OCD, addictions, mood swings and the generally feeling awful and unstable that so many have. She explains why it is happening and which food and supplements to correct it. There are easy to use questionnaires which guide you in understanding which TYPE of depression or anxiety you suffer from and thereby tailor the solution.

Be warned, her solutions are a VERY long way from the general advice just to eat healthily. This is hard core scientific solutions. And a lot of back up with very specific recommendations for amino acids (to make all those neurotransmitters that regulate mood - dopamine, serotonin & GABA) and vitamins and minerals which are used in specific high doses as medicines.

The solution requires work and commitment. But ultimately it is highly workable and simple in structure. And it really changes lives.

Julia Ross opens a door and throws open the windows on a room in which so many feel trapped. No more decades of incomprehensible misery. I use this book in my practice and buy copies in bulk to give to my patients. It is an outstanding introduction - written in an engaging style but with a good strong foundation in science. A serious book that nevertheless invites everyone in.

As a response to the negative reviews below, Ms Ross does indeed take a dim view of vegetarianism - but a) this is a small point in a large and rich book and b) she has this view born of years of experience. A high protein diet is necessary for people suffering emotional health problems because protein is the source of the neurotransmitters which will ultimately cure the depression, anxiety etc. Some people are genetically predisposed to need more than average. Protein is also important for blood sugar stabilisation - unstable blood sugar being near universal with any eating issues, carbohydrate cravings, sugar addictions, much anxiety and mood swings. I find I need to give most of my vegetarian patients protein supplement powders (whey, pea, rice protein etc) before I can build up their programme of recovery further.

In summary a very good book to start your journey. Of equal excellence (in some ways superior) and more scientific in its approach (the emphasis more on neutraceuticals supplements than diet) is Depression Free Naturally by Joan Larson. Don't be fooled by the title - is covers all major issues including very serious ones like schizophrenia.

Additionally, anyone with serious emotional and mental issues should buy Gut and Psychology Syndrome - that gut toxicity is highly involved in much illness is now beyond debate and at least 45% of my patients need help with their gut before they can properly recover. This book will explain how and why.

Good luck and whatever happens don't give up. There are answers to your struggles. The Mood Cure and Depression Free Naturally will be a good start. Add in the book on Gut and Psychology, Adrenal Fatigue, a good book on the thyroid and maybe something on mercury toxicity. A great deal of mental suffering can be alleviated with these interventions. Have faith - a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. You will be taking the first when you buy this book.

HASH(0x8d69a264) von 5 Sternen A cure for so many things! 5. Januar 2010
Von Sandra Degive - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I am this book's biggest fan. When I bought it on a whim one year ago, I had NO idea it was going to change my life, but it did.

I bought this book to see if it could help with the moodiness I often felt (cranky when hungry, bad days for no apparent reason, occasional down weeks), and it did. But it did so much more than that too. I waited a full year to review this book, because I wanted to give the full long-run picture of its benefits, though I started noticing them within a couple of weeks.

The first thing I noticed was exactly what the book promised. My moods improved. No, you don't become happy and upbeat 100% of the time. If something sad or disappointing happens in your life you will still feel sad and disappointed. But you stop getting those moods that come out of nowhere and leave you feeling confused and drained. During the same first few weeks I also noticed my energy level was much higher and my sleep patterns improving. I used to have issues falling asleep, and suddenly I was finding that I could fall asleep within 10-15 mintues of going to bed, which seemed like a miracle!

As time passed and I worked on the diet and improved how I followed it, I started to notice 3 major things I had no idea would be affected:

1. I no longer was getting sick all the time. I used to be one of those people that caught everything going around. If my coworkers got sick, I got sick. If my roommates got sick, I got sick. If my boyfriend got sick, I got sick. I talked to doctors about it and was told that some people just get sick more often than others. Wash your hands, get sleep, drink fluids, etc. All the things I was already doing. I am AMAZED beyond belief to report that since beginning this diet a year ago I have not been fully sick one single time. (I had the beginnings of a cold and a flu during the fall that both went away within 24-48 hours.) Compare this to a normal year in which i would get at least 5 colds that would each last the full 2 weeks if not more.

2. My exercise induced asthma has disappeared. I developed mild asthma when I was about 20. Since following this diet I have not had a single attack and have stopped using preventative measures before exercising and have even begun to stop carrying my inhaler in most circumstances.

3. My chronic headaches have subsided. I've been battling headaches on and off since 4th grade and no doctor has ever been able to find a lasting med that has worked. I get headaches like a normal person now... only when I'm extremely stressed or hungover!

I should stress the difficulty of this diet. This is by no means an "easy" cure. But it's an amazing one. Worth every penny for the supplements. Worth every painstaking moment of cooking and shopping for the healthier, less-processed foods (which also cost more money).

I've become a cheerleader for this diet and actually bought 5 copies of the book to lend out to people. My boyfriend finally began the diet a few months ago and is also noticing amazing results in his own way. (He enjoys running and has found he is faster and has much more endurance.)

I have read a couple of other books on this subject and so far this is my favorite. I plan to read more in the future. My favorite thing about her book is that she does a good job of describing what these foods are doing to your body and why they are resulting in bad moods. I needed that kind of description to get behind it and really give it a try.

Please do yourself a favor and buy it and read it and follow it. It's the best thing you will ever do.
I didn't even know my life needed so much improving until this book improved it 10-fold.
This book is a journey though. A year later I am still working on the diet and trying to perfect how I follow it. Plan to work hard, and plan to reap the benefits!
