Rebuild From Depression, Unabridged

In Rebuild from Depression: A Nutrient Guide, Including Depression in Pregnancy and Postpartum, Amanda Rose, Ph.D. and Annell Adams, M.D. identify the seven nutrients most commonly associated with depression in the medical literature. They provide readers with tools to:

(1) Identify a nutrient deficiency

(2) Locate the best supplements, and

(3) Select and prepare foods to maximize those nutrients in their diet.

The depression book opens with Rose’s biography of depression and psychosis. She makes a compelling claim: “My grandmother died at the age of sixty-one from complications of postpartum depression.” Rose argues that her grandmother showed signs of nutrient deficiencies in her 20s, did not correct them, and suffered a life of depression, diabetes, and heart disease, all of which share a common nutrient deficiency: Omega 3 fatty acids.

Use the book to fight depression with:

  • 7 nutrients
  • 50+ foods
  • recipes
  • science
  • inspiration

The depression book describes the research basis for the nutrient-depression link, highlighting the nutrients with the strongest basis in research. With seven specific nutrients in mind, the authors review each of the food groups recommending how to improve the diet for the long-term. Which meats are highest in Omega 3 fatty acids? How do you select oils to improve your Omega 3 status? Should you trim your steak?

In a unique contribution to work on depression, the authors present “depression buster foods” – those foods highest in the seven focus nutrients. The Rebuild book is the only depression book of its kind to identify criteria for depression-fighting foods and apply that criteria systematically to the USDA’s database of over 5,000 foods.

“The best book on depression and food I’ve seen is Rebuild from Depression, by Amanda Rose, who understands the condition from bitter experience.”

Nina Planck, Author

“Rebuild from Depression is going to be a very important book. Its dissection of the role of diet and nutrition is well-researched and an eye-opener. Medical science is beginning to greater value the study of diet and particularly the role of nutrients in maintaining that delicate bodily balance called health.

It may be that increases in depression can be tied to our deteriorating eating habits in which manufactured food is progressively displacing grown food. The medical community is trying to correct the ravages of diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity and yet these diseases may represent the end-result of dietary manipulation by industry. We need to address the cause of these diseases: the food we are consuming is nutrient-shallow. Rebuild from Depression helps us do just that. Dr. Amanda Rose needs to be heard by the medical professionals as well as laymen.”

“In the arena of depression where the push is one pill fits all, it is refreshing to look at the holistic reality that depression has many stems and many causes. Depression really requires us to view this issue systemically, with care and honor for the client. Amanda Rose, in her fine book, reminds us of that need in an open, realistic discussion. I highly recommend this book for practitioners and their clients.”

“Rebuild from Depression provides real answers for reversing depression caused by common nutritional deficiencies. By giving you powerful information and practical steps to boost your awareness, it empowers you to live a happier, healthier life!”

“Rebuild from Depression by Amanda G. Rose, Ph.D., is full of useful information for women, especially mothers and the people who support them. The author examines the ways in which the nutritional demands of pregnancy and the recovery period following childbirth can trigger postpartum depression, and often contribute to a lifelong depression. She presents a nutritional approach to providing protection against postpartum depression, and ideas for overcoming depression in women. As a doula, I’m looking forward to recommending this book to my clients.”

“In my work at the Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Oakland I have dealt with grief every day and with its cousin, depression. We all need survival tools to help us get through tough times. Rose’’s book Rebuild from Depression gives us depression-fighting tools to last a lifetime.”

“Two years ago this week I was detained by the state of California and sent to a mental hospital for a 72 hour evaluation after a visit to the ER. I had not slept and barely eaten in 7 days. I was sure that God was going to take me home and that I would die in the institution. My baby was 9 weeks old. I turned a major corner about 3 weeks ago after about 6 intense weeks of nutritional supplements, amino acids, and traditional foods. I am convinced that rebuilding through nutrition will cure me.

I am a skeptic about ‘cures’ in general. When Amanda used to tell me about depression and nutrition, I just did not get it. I thought that I inherited mental illness from my father’s side and there was nothing I could do besides accept it and take medications. Then one day, by the grace of God, a light bulb went on and it all made sense. I am on the path to wellness now, as I call it. Knowing also that Amanda is well and she had mental illness in her family made me rethink my whole paradigm about mental illness.

My B-6 and zinc levels are already increasing after 2.5 months. I had severe anemia and someone who I had not seen in a few months looked at me and said ‘You have color in your face, my dear!’

It is never too late for you to get well and influence the generations to come.”

Jennifer S., mother of one, 26 years old, California

“How enlightening! Dr. Rose’s personal story is inspiring, and her advice for how I can take action in my own struggle with vitamin deficiencies is empowering. I highly recommend her book for all women whether they are simply hoping to be mothers in the future or are struggling to regain their mental and physical health from past pregnancies.”

Lindsay Rhein, mother of two

“Amanda Rose, Ph.D., has packed an amazing amount of usable information into this must-read book. It not only addresses why people can suffer from depression, but also how one can fix it. Thanks to Amanda, I have learned to love liver.”

Youngiee Quennell, Oregon

“Wow! I’ve ignored all responsibilities in my life (other than my daughter and the dog) over the last five days because I’ve spent every spare minute my daughter was asleep reading Rebuild from Depression. From my own similar journey, I do believe that God wants us to be healthy and to thrive on the foods He gave us instead of trying to improve on what He has made perfectly. This book will lead people to this truth and in the right direction.”

Moneca Dunham

“Amanda’s book, Rebuild from Depression, and her story, have inspired me to find a nutritional solution to my depression. I have used homeopathy and nutritional supplements instead of the antidepressants that I was on previously. Her well-researched, informative book, along with her story, can help someone who is looking for the root cause of her depression. Her troubleshooting lists really help one to know where to begin to seek help for nutritional support. And her recipes are great, too!”
