Fact: There are specific nutrients that are critical to your brain health.

Your brain is 60% fat. The fat in your diet directly impacts your brain health. What fat does your brain need? Do you eat enough? What happens to a brain deficient in brain-building fats or magnesium, vitamin B-6, or iron?

Fact: Most Americans do not eat enough of a mineral critical to brain health.

The U.S. government estimates that 80% of Americans do not get enough of one specific brain-building mineral. Are you part of this 80%? Your body may be trying to tell you and your brain may be suffering because of it.

Fact: Good nutrition even helps those who are on anti-depressant medication.

You will continue to struggle with depression if you are missing key nutrients. Even if you are on an anti-depressant medication, some medications work better when your brain is loaded with these brain-building nutrients.

Fact: If you ignore nutrition, you will likely experience far-reaching consequences.

Depression is only one consequence of poor brain health. As you age, dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease are other signs. However, the same nutrients that impact your brain impact many systems in your body. The quote below from the introduction of the book Rebuild From Depression tells the story.

A Unique “Test” of the Book

Rose’s struggle with postpartum depression is featured prominently in the book, relating to her own grandmother’s ongoing depression after having children and her life-long struggle with heart disease and diabetes. As the book was in press, then 40-year-old Rose became pregnant with a second child and, against all odds, was able to survive the pregnancy and postpartum periods depression-free. (Rose is pictured at right with her second son.)

The tools in the Rebuild book were critical to her success but she attributes other complementary tools as well, some featured in the bonus content in this offer.

It is so easy to integrate into your life that even care givers can implement lavender therapy for their loved ones.

In this digital book Good Days Strategies Classics, explore ideas to make simple changes in your life on your good days, changes that will impact your health during your bad days as well. You may find yourself with fewer bad days. For example, did you realize that poor indoor air increases your body’s need for brain-building nutrients?

Learn many more small changes you can implement to improve your health. This book was part of Amanda’s original research for the Rebuild From Depression book with a focus on lifestyle changes.
In Rebuild From Depression, the authors profile over 50 foods rich in brain-building nutrients. Five of those foods are highlighted in this cookbook with several recipes for each food. The focus foods include salmon, sesame seeds, lamb, clam, and yard long beans.

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

Real Food: What to Eat and Why

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.”
–Robert Kotler, MD, FACS
Clinical Instructor, UCLA

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!”
–Jan DeCourtney, CMT
Co-author, Recapture Your Health

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.

“Rose’’s book Rebuild from Depression gives us depression-fighting tools to last a lifetime.”

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.”

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!”
–Jennifer Redwine
