The Feel Good Factor

By Patrick Holford

Low mood and depression are endemic, and on the increase, and the recession has further fuelled the need for the practical, down-to-earth advice provided in THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR.

Written by leading nutrition expert and mental health specialist Patrick Holford, it reveals highly effective methods to make a difference to how you feel - without the need for medical drugs. It includes lifestyle and life management techniques, as well as revealing the right foods to eat, and those to avoid, to help improve your mood dramatically.

This accessible approach is supported by substantial research, and backed up by poignant and motivating case histories. This includes those with major depression who failed to get better with conventional approaches and recovered completely on Holford's regime. The book is supported by further in-depth analysis relating to mood and diet taken from Holford's 100% Health survey, which was completed by over 55,000 people.

The best thing about The Feel Good Factor is that Holford provides a solid, scientifically sound action plan to sufferers. He doesn't just tell you what might boost your mood. He explains how the mood boosters work biologically and chemically, provides specific methodology or protocol for intake of supplements and nutrients and includes recipes for feel-good meals. He doesn't ignore the all-important psychological element either, advising readers to "do something you enjoy every day, respect your feelings and don't have unrealistic expectations of yourself".A straightforward, ten-step approach to overcoming low mood and depression based on simple nutrition and lifestyle changesPatrick Holford BSc, DipION, FBANT, NTCRP pioneers new approaches to health and nutrition.
