The timing of today's show we are going to do I feel is extremely important. Not that any other time of the year is not important, but we are right smack dab in the middle of the Christmas season. Now listen to this…approximately 25% of Americans will suffer from major depression in some point of their lives. That’s 1 in 4! Kinda staggering if I may say so.  What’s causing this? Why are so many Americans depressed? Well we work long hours, grab a bite to eat anytime or anyplace we can fit it in, and some even live isolated lives. Starting to get the picture here? We are going to be talking today about the amazing book, “THE DEPRESSION CURE: THE 6 STEP PROGRAM TO BEAT DEPRESSION WITHOUT DRUGS.” We have talked about these type of subjects before.  If you want to live your life taking prescription medications when there may be a way to heal yourself naturally, then today’s show is not for you. But if you think about it, with 1 in 4 suffering, you probably know someone if it is not yourself. Winter and the holidays only amplify the problem for people who suffer from depression.  And it's no wonder. In an effort to pull off a perfect holiday, you might find yourself facing a dizzying array of demands — parties, shopping, baking, cleaning and entertaining, just to name a few. HO HO HO. So much for peace and joy, right? Our guest today knows about depression as he has treated hundreds of depressed patients. He is an associate professor of clinical psychology at the University of Kansas and the author of over forty professional articles on mental illness. Please welcome Dr. Stephen S. Ilardi.
