So let’s start right off with today’s question, “What is the leading cause of disability in America?” My own personal first thought was obesity, but after giving it some thought, I am not surprised that major depressive disorder is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. for ages 15-44. Or that clinical or major depression is the top cause of disability throughout the world for persons 5 and over. In the United States alone, businesses may spend anywhere from twelve to seventy billion dollars caring for or paying for the medical expenses of employees that have depression or suffer from a related mental illness. So it is a fair guess that we have established that depression is a major problem. But what brings it on? We all get depressed at one time or another, but is that a major depressive disorder? How do we effectively treat depression? Do we just give them anti-depressant drugs? Well today our guest is going to answer these and many other questions you may have on depression. He has written a truly great book titled, “THE MIND- BODY MOOD SOLUTION – THE BREAKTHROUGH DRUG-FREE PROGRAM FOR LASTING RELIEF FROM DEPRESSION.” For over 30 years now he has been treating depressed people. He offers a comprehensive, drug-free depression treatment program that fully integrates psychological tools with lifestyle practices such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, breathing, and meditation. Please welcome Dr. Jeffrey Rossman to our show.
