Description: In Beyond Prozac, Dr. Michael Norden, a psychiatrist and pioneer in developing new applications of Prozac, explains how modern living may be precisely what is undermining our health. For while the world we live in has changed drastically since our Stone Age past, the human body - and brain - has remained virtually the same. We have yet to develop the necessary coping mechanisms to deal with the alarming stresses of this modern technological era. The result is an epidemic of depression, anxiety, and sleep and weight disorders. It's also the reason we medicate - with varying degrees of success - using everything from caffeine to Prozac. Evidence shows the costly toll modern living takes on our health. Irregular sleep patterns, low-fat/high-carbohydrate diets, a sedentary lifestyle, even the air we breathe are all serious factors in the depletion of the brain's serotonin system. This makes us, as Dr. Norden puts it, Prozac-deficient. Prozac, a drug that was designed to bolster this weakened neurochemical "stress shield", increases serotonin levels in the brain. Despite the fact that Prozac is now being utilized by tens of millions of people worldwide, Dr. Norden shows us that we need to look beyond Prozac to lead truly healthy lives. Beyond Prozac offers a variety of solutions. We can strengthen our serotonin system through natural means. Effective treatments include light therapy, regulation of sleeping habits, specialized diets, and a variety of alternative treatments that work with our body as designed. Dr. Norden also provides his own startling insights on the best use of Prozac and the next generation of antidepressants.
