There is a one in three probability that depression will hit you or someone you know very closely.  The rotten thing about depression is that not only does it zap all the joy and excitement from life but it can be a terminal illness, as about 15 percent of those with depression actually commit suicide.

Fortunately there are many powerful resources to address this problem. One excellent one is the book Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven-Stage Journey Out of Depression, by Dr. James Gordon.

Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven-Stage Journey Out of DepressionChallenging the Status Quo of the Conventional Treatment of Depression

Dr. Gordon is one of the pioneers in integrative medicine in the U.S. and has been advocating these principles for over thirty years.  He has respectable credentials as he graduated from Harvard Medical School and also served in the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and eventually wound up as the chairman of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

He is an unconventional psychiatrist who challenges the perceived wisdom on how depression is viewed and treated.  Over 200 million prescriptions are written every year in the U.S. alone, and he provides compelling evidence that these expensive and potentially deadly drugs are no more effective than placebos, and that many of the negative studies supporting this fact have never been published due to suppression by the drug companies.

He believes depression can be a wakeup call and the start of a journey that can help you become whole and happy.  He provides a comprehensive summary of the non-drug options that are available to those suffering from depression. 

Surprisingly though, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is not included in his list. 

This underlines what a major challenge it is to keep up in any area of health, because if one of the main pioneers in this area missed it, how easy would it be for the general lay public to miss it? 

I recently interviewed Dr. Gordon for my inner circle membership program and when I asked him about EFT he mentioned that a few people had told him about it but he never investigated it. So with my encouragement he is starting that process, and will likely update future editions of Unstuck to include that information.

Dr. Gordon is also founder and director of the nonprofit Center for Mind Body Medicine in Washington D.C.  He has been able to share his training programs with about one third of the medical schools in the U.S. This is a major achievement, because if we fail to educate the new physicians in this paradigm, then we will lose the battle.

I am excited about Dr. Gordon’s work in this area and look forward to collaborating with him to see how we might work together in the future to continue to further educate new physicians.

The Bottom Line

If you or someone you know struggles with the pain of depression, I strongly encourage you to check out Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven-Stage Journey Out of Depression. It is a comprehensive compilation of helpful strategies that has taken Dr. Gordon over thirty years to put together.  

Books are clearly one of the best value resources you can acquire as they radically reduce the time required to learn a topic. Unstuck can help you or your loved ones accelerate out of the pain of depression.
