Product Description

 

Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal's indispensable guide for readers who suffer from the "winter blues" is now more useful than ever. This authoritative book presents a wealth of new information on remedies for seasonal affective disorder (SAD), including recent advances in light therapy, research on the effectiveness of antidepressants, and new recipes to counterbalance unhealthy winter food cravings. Dr. Rosenthal distinguishes among various degrees of the disorder, ranging from winter blues to full-blown SAD; provides a self-test that readers can use to evaluate their own seasonal mood changes; and offers helpful advice, coping tips, and resources.

 

 

Editorial Reviews

 

"Dr. Rosenthal, a pioneering researcher who helped put seasonal depression on the map, is a also a gifted teacher and storyteller. What do simple algae, hibernating animals, and humans have in common? They all have internal rhythms that respond to the seasons. Follow Dr. Rosenthal as he explores the latest science and treatment of seasonal depression, illustrated with fascinating anecdotes and stories and delivered in his compulsively readable and eloquent style."--Richard A. Friedman, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Medical College of Cornell University

 

“I consider Winter Blues to be the SAD bible. Dr. Rosenthal's brilliant research and words of wisdom have provided the nurturing help that so many people have sought when the change of seasons brings sadness instead of joy. This book is 'must' reading.”--Pamela Peeke MD, MPH, FACP, author of Body for Life for Women and Fight Fat After Forty

 

"The light therapy that Dr. Rosenthal recommends has made life worth living during December, January, February, and March for 14 years. I take care of my family, feel like a valuable person, and am a productive professional. Now his new chapter, 'Winter Light,' gives me a recipe for celebrating those once-dreaded months."--LaDonna Green Bates, MSW

Comments
I would recommend this book without hesitation to anyone struggling with SAD. It helped bring me back from the brink when I had lost all hope.

Prior to reading this book I had been given 4 different antidepressants by my doctor and just told to do some exercise and have a regular routine. If I could have done that I wouldn't have had a problem would I!

After reading this book I got myself a 10,000 lux light box (a proven therapy) and used the excellent recipe suggestions to change my diet to a more mood enhancing one.

I have used other techniques described by Dr. Rosenthal in this book to good effect also but won't go into every detail. It's not an expensive book so if you are struggling with SAD use whatever energy you have to buy it and read it. It will change your life.
