An eye-opening exploration of the latest scientific discoveries about depressive illness, from one of the leading researchers in the field.
Since he first developed the idea that depression is a stress response gone awry, Philip Gold has spent decades researching what this means for our whole bodies, not just our brains. In this book, he reveals the latest research on how depression affects every aspect of our health - from the chemical messengers that control sleep and appetite to the brain's structure and functionality. By painting a fuller picture of this insidious disease, Gold transforms our understanding of different forms of depression - including related conditions such as bipolar and seasonal affective disorders - and its huge impact on global health.
Timely, urgent and important, Breaking Through Depression articulates the workings of this misunderstood illness in compelling and often surprising detail, introducing the newest innovations in treatment that offer hope for healing.
