If you've been chalking up your fatigue, irritation, pessimism and anti-social behavior to a mood swing, surprise - that mood swing you've had for 15 years may actually be dysthymia. More subtle than severe depression, Dysthymia is a mild version of the disorder that lasts for more than two years. The easy-to-read 'Blues' describes therapies, medications and alternative approaches that can help you feel better."— New York Daily News

Mild depressions are so insidious that sufferers often don't seek help. However persistent mild depression, which afflicts up to 35 million Americans, can be readily and permanently cured.
This book shows how chronic mild depression can be relieved by learning strategies that help us to recognise negative and distorted thinking patterns that lead to a downward spiral of pessimism. It reveals that a combination of medication and therapy has been shown to be the most effective treatment for mild depression, with an impressive 85% of patients experiencing full relief. It discusses when you should seek help from a therapist and what kinds of therapy work best. It outlines the antidepressants that are helpful for both mild and severe depressions, detailing each drug's strength and weakness, and examine alternative therapies, including stress management (meditation, relaxation, massage, biofeedback), physical exercise, acupuncture, supplements, and other mind/body therapies. Finally, the book provides in-depth discussions of mild depression in children, adolescents, college students, and elderly parents, as well as those with chronic stress. Throughout, the authors use boxed text and charts to make the key ideas immediately accessible and easy to use.
Beating the Blues is an inspiring and empowering book, filled with the information and encouragement you need to turn your life around and begin to feel renewed pleasure and joy.
