My naturopath recommended this book to me. There's some good info in here about supplements and exercise. But I REALLY hated the way she kept dissing vegetarians/vegans. Apparently, you just can't be healthy nor happy being veg. I'm living proof that's not true!

My mom sent me this book and two supplements (5-HTP and L-Tyrosine) after I had admitted to her that I was using alcohol to self-medicate my depression and anxiety. She told me to start taking the 5-HTP immediately, even before I read the book.

I've read the book and it really does make a lot of sense. I've stopped drinking for a week. The cravings are still there, but right now I only have the two supplements my mom sent, the others are in the mail.

The 5-HTP makes me feel better within about 15 My mom sent me this book and two supplements (5-HTP and L-Tyrosine) after I had admitted to her that I was using alcohol to self-medicate my depression and anxiety. She told me to start taking the 5-HTP immediately, even before I read the book.

I've read the book and it really does make a lot of sense. I've stopped drinking for a week. The cravings are still there, but right now I only have the two supplements my mom sent, the others are in the mail.

The 5-HTP makes me feel better within about 15 minutes and I take it twice daily. I'm looking forward to getting my supplements to really put this book to the test.

It's easy to read, since you kind of skip around looking at the portions that pertain to you. Every thing she says is cited and the studies are clearly listed in the back - a huge plus!!

I also like that even though it is a supplement and semi-diet based program (mainly to cut out sugar and wheat), she talks about cutting back on the supplements once your body is back up to snuff and can make the things it's currently not able to. It's like the supplements are a booster. There are some that you are expected to keep taking, which is fine, since many of the chemicals your body needs are hard to get from food.

With just how much better I feel from one supplement this book was worth reading. I'm hoping with the other supplements I will be able to climb out of my funk and start exercising and socializing again. It gives me hope. Hope, mainly because she explains the "why it works" behind everything and I even looked up a few of the studies that seemed too miraculous to me. My husband has a neuroscience hobby and I read to him excerpts and he found even more detail in some of his books that back her up with even more recent research.

Sure the supplements can be expensive, but so can going to a weekly therapy session and taking prescription drugs when you have no insurance or your insurance doesn't cover enough. For me, it's at least worth a shot!! ...more

I would recommend this book not only for people struggling with depression, anxiety, OCD, that type of thing, but also for overstressed, overwhelmed people, and for people with mild depression- sort of low-energy/apathetic type of feeling. I think everyone should read it because the chances are extremely high that you will need the things you learn for yourself at some point in your life or for someone you love. You might even be suffering needlessly, telling yourself it's "normal" and that you I would recommend this book not only for people struggling with depression, anxiety, OCD, that type of thing, but also for overstressed, overwhelmed people, and for people with mild depression- sort of low-energy/apathetic type of feeling. I think everyone should read it because the chances are extremely high that you will need the things you learn for yourself at some point in your life or for someone you love. You might even be suffering needlessly, telling yourself it's "normal" and that you just need to "buck up."

This is definitely the best book I have ever read on depression. Partly because the nutrition and supplement recommendations in it are RIGHT ON. I have been like the human experiment and can testify that it works, and it works FAST, like in 5 or 10 minutes.

Her writing is down-to-earth and readable, very persuasive, and the research seems to be impeccable. And again, I think EVERYONE in the entire world should read this book. Taking some of the supplements she recommends for depression should be as much common knowledge as taking a Tylenol for a headache!!!

I am completely on board with the author's philosophy that food in this country isn't what it used to be. This is a very common conclusion in the alternative/holistic health world. But the research is there. Our protein doesn't have as much tryptophan in it so our brains can have seratonin, and our produce just doesn't have the vitamins & minerals in it that it used to. Like I said, this needs to be common knowledge. ...more

I picked up this book for three reasons: 1) I've been feeling extremely tired and run down and hence I'm broadening my scope in looking for ways to fix my body 2) I'm interested in learning about factors that can affect our brain's function, our moods etc. because these in turn often have an effect on our decision-making, which is what I work on 3) the book had great reviews

The first couple of chapters seemed alright - the author lamented about the decline of good nutrition and she highlighted the importance of consuming sufficient amounts of the right amino acids as well as vitamins and minerals. And she provided a number of examples/case studies of patients who made turnarounds with the interventions suggested.

The reason I gave this book one star is that the author then mentioned a homeopathic treatment in the same way as she did all the other recommendations and even suggested "you may need to find a homeopathic practitioner who is familiar with these type of remedies". Everything that the author had said before now became highly suspect and flopped into the pseudoscience category for me.

I tried to carry on with the book but I now just felt that I was probably wasting my time so I gave up on it. The stuff promoted in the book might sound convincing and provide quick solutions to our health and mood problems by literally popping a few pills (of supplements) but any credibility it had has been extinguished by its homeopathic suggestion. ...more

The Mood Cure was just what I was looking for. At 53 I started experiencing insomnia, mood swings, anxiety, high blood pressure spikes, food cravings, etc. I thought I was losing my mind and not really sure where to turn,after going to my doctor who put me on ativan, which is a benzodiazepine, and has a really bad history of addiction, this book literally put me back on the right track & saved my life.

Current popular ideas about depression frequently center around “low serotonin” and are the remnants of the outdated monoamine hypothesis that originated in the 1960s and stems from the (perceived)efficacy of monoamine reuptake inhibitors in treating depression. However, despite that fact that the human body is not as simple as the monoamine hypothesis would make it seem, it is still potentiated. Many “health” websites still perpetuate this theory in a way akin to the humor theories of the Current popular ideas about depression frequently center around “low serotonin” and are the remnants of the outdated monoamine hypothesis that originated in the 1960s and stems from the (perceived)efficacy of monoamine reuptake inhibitors in treating depression. However, despite that fact that the human body is not as simple as the monoamine hypothesis would make it seem, it is still potentiated. Many “health” websites still perpetuate this theory in a way akin to the humor theories of the Greeks and Romans. Websites such as “Universityhealthnews.com” mislead with statements such as “If you’re feeling pessimistic, sad, distrustful, unconfident, or ready to have a panic attack, you may have a serotonin defeciency”. Serotonin is the new “sanguine humor”, and cortisol is the new “black bile”. Even PhD’s such as Joseph M Carver, on his website make outrageous claims such as “Your brain burns up more serotonin than it creates”. Julia Ross MA in her book “The Mood Cure” spouts the same monoamine montra, even going as far as to add monoamine deficiency to symptom clusters and phenotypes despite having zero clinical evidence. This type of literature is harmful and may contribute to decreased quality of life in those with depressive disorders.


The real pathophysiology of depression is farm more complex than any humor based ideas. Evidence suggests many neurological, immunological, endocrinological and psychological factors that may play a role in depression. The ability for the brain, immune system and endocrine system to interact is studied, and is the focus of psychoneuroimmunology. The lack of efficacy of tryptophan depletion, to produce depressive symptoms in non-high risk patients, as well as the inability of fenfluramine(the SSRA) to produce euphoria and alleviate depression fail to support the monoamine hypothesis. Serotonin receptor binding has failed to produce consistent results in relation to depression. Serotonin levels in the blood and CSF fail to differ between controls and depressed patients, further dampening any serotonin based hypothesis of depression.

This book is the largest piece of psuedoscientific bullshit I have ever read. I read it because some review I saw made me cry inside. Do not trust this harlets writing, ideas or dietary reccomendations. Amino acid therapy is ineffective in depression, and as evidenced by the EMS outbreak in the 80s are potentially harmful. See a real doctor for depression. Get real antidepressants.

Many other books were either too vaque or so complicated that I had to just put it dowm. This is easy to read but detailed enough to take seriously. I learned a lot. It reads like choose-your-own adventure, allowing the reader to focus on individual concerns and jump around a bit. The author also breaks down the depression epidemic as it relates to modern food science (which fit well with the Pollan and Kingsolver I have been reading lately!!) The focus ("cure" if you will) deals with a combination of amino acid supplements with a diet void of sugar, caffeine, alcohol and starchy foods. Seems obvious to cut out these things, but to read the explanations make it a more attainable and worthwhile goal. I was sold, for sure. ...more

Stopped reading this when the author started advocating homeopathy.

Then, found a review on Amazon that goes into detail about the problems with this book, including blood type diets and a claim that "casein can be as addictive as gluten." What? There's also no citation for the slams against vegetarianism and veganism.

This book is a miracle. Can't say enough. Who knew that a fifteen-year anxiety problem could be caused by a dietary problem. I made a few changes to my diet and took some amino acid supplements, and the problem went away. It's a quick read, and the explanations make so much sense. This is one of those books that you wish you could share with everyone.

This book is AMAZING. As a psychotherapist working amongst statutory settings, I must say I can really see the limitation of 'standard treatments' or CBT, and conversely the power of nutritional therapies. Julia Ross's dietary guidelines are in line with the currently popular Paleo/ Low Carb Diet, which I personally see as legitimate. For those who feel like they are in a deep dark tunnel have exhausted every way out, I strongly recommend this book.

I've read most of the book. I'm so so soooo happy I got it. I have suffered from depression for about 2 years and it never really made sense why I was feeling this way.

I felt better right away and I've only been taking the pills for a few days now. I feel good that I'm repairing my life back slowly. Through therapy and biology I know I'll get through this. ...more

I got a LOT of excellent information from this book, but I held off any review until I put the regimen into actual practice for at least a few weeks.

My friend Natalie also recommended this book, and noted that she regularly saw improvements to her energy/focus level within MINUTES, which was very intriguing to me.

I found that assessment to be true as well - attention, energy, SOUND sleep, alertness on waking all have marked improvement in a very short time span after taking the amino acid supplements. The regimen advocates an array of vitamins in addition to the key amino acids an individual is lacking, and I wasn't sure I was going to be able to keep track of what I should be taking and when, but I got my routine down very quickly. I definitely prefer investing in vitamins over looking for relief with prescription meds.

The author does an excellent job of connecting the nutritional shortcomings of the American diet with the emotional/attention difficulties we experience, and how the supplements work to overcome a broken system. No magic bullets though - diet change is definitely required as well.

This book filled in a lot of knowledge gaps for me between nutrition facts that I sort of knew before, such as that people need plenty of serotonin and other neurotransmitters to maintain a good mood and that low-calorie diets usually backfire. I've tried some of the recommended eating patterns (less sugar, less refined flour, more protein, not worrying about fat) and I do seem to be feeling better. Hubby made me steak with vegetables and potatoes last night and I woke up this morning feeling This book filled in a lot of knowledge gaps for me between nutrition facts that I sort of knew before, such as that people need plenty of serotonin and other neurotransmitters to maintain a good mood and that low-calorie diets usually backfire. I've tried some of the recommended eating patterns (less sugar, less refined flour, more protein, not worrying about fat) and I do seem to be feeling better. Hubby made me steak with vegetables and potatoes last night and I woke up this morning feeling more alert (after the first few minutes in the dark) and with a better appetite than I have in a while. Normally I would eat more wheat noodles or bread and less meat. In addition, after eating spinach and cheese omelets for breakfast for a few days, we went to a church potluck on Sunday and I was not tempted AT ALL to eat any of the desserts. I felt totally satisfied and my body hasn't been craving sugar like it sometimes would, although I haven't really been a sugar junkie for a long time--more of a wheat flour junkie.

That said, I do want to investigate the claim that eating tons of saturated fat is good for you. It sounds awesome, but it's difficult for me to shed the idea that saturated fat is evil. I also have not tried any of Ross' advice on supplements, which is mostly what this book is about (her food advice is apparently more fleshed out (haha) in The Diet Cure). I frequently feel like I have low energy, am unmotivated, lack enthusiasm, and sometimes can't stay focused. Vitamin D has helped me in the past and I'm still taking it, but I may try some of Ross' suggestions for low-serotonin-sufferers such as taking a 5-HTP supplement. I've also never taken Omega-3 fish oil supplements and I don't eat much seafood, so that's another consideration.

Overall, I found the structure of the book kind of confusing and overwhelming. When I'm reading this kind of thing, I really prefer more of a list-type format for things to try. Granted, I read the whole book through, and it seems like instead it's more meant for the reader to jump around in. There were some lists like the Master Supplement Plan that the reader could use to figure out what they would try and in what order, but I would have liked to have seen a master list of the bare bones content of everything she talked about in the book--more like an outline of what to try if you have which symptoms, in what dosage and how many times per day and WHAT time, in what order, and what to be cautious about right there on the chart. So, I may try some of the simpler, more harmless solutions and see what happens to me, but if I decide to go any further with it (which I probably won't because I don't have tons of time and money to devote to it), I would want to see a naturopath or a nutritionist.

Update 2/12/2014: I thought I'd update with a note that I did indeed try a 5-HTP supplement, but it was not a good solution for me. It caused me to snap awake in the middle of the night. The author did mention in the book that it does that to some people, though--I guess I'm in that minority. ...more

I found this book to be lifechanging. Unfortunately, I also find myself wanting to give it to other people who I know have trouble with depression and tell them, "This really works! Try it!" with the sort of wide-eyed fanaticism that I know will make them back away slowly.

It intuitively makes sense, though, that instead of tinkering with the reuptake processes of the brain in order to get there to be more free serotonin, you just take the precursors to seratonin.

I'd heard that the drugs we're prescribing for mental health issues may very well be to blame for the veritable epidemic of mental health disorders (especially just plain depression and anxiety) but I hadn't heard this angle before, at least not in so many words: we're not getting the building blocks our bodies need in order to produce our neurotransmitters because our food is so adulterated. It's definitely true that most of our food these days isn't real food, but it's fascinating to note that I'd heard that the drugs we're prescribing for mental health issues may very well be to blame for the veritable epidemic of mental health disorders (especially just plain depression and anxiety) but I hadn't heard this angle before, at least not in so many words: we're not getting the building blocks our bodies need in order to produce our neurotransmitters because our food is so adulterated. It's definitely true that most of our food these days isn't real food, but it's fascinating to note that the explosion of processed and fast food occurred around the same time that the mood epidemic started gaining traction (and also around the same time that Prozac and similar drugs hit the market, but that's another issue).

Julia Ross makes a solid case for a biochemical basis for a lot of these imbalances... but it's not genetic. It's much simpler than that: eat real, unprocessed food, with plenty of protein; cut out the sugar; and then maybe until you get yourself back to ground zero, supplement with the specific amino acid precursors you need.

I'm a naturopathic doctor, and can verify that this treatment approach works. ...more

Julia Ross's plan is down to earth, proven by science and experience. Good-mood foods such as protein, healthy fat and certain key vegetables get you started in a feel better day to day path that includes all types of dietary choices: omnivore, vegetarian, even vegan. Not difficult, not expensive, easy to understand, completely doable. And you can feel the results within a day or less.

Chapter 13 alone should be required reading for anyone working in mental or holistic health, in my opinion. When I think of all of the suffering that could be prevented…

I highlighted pages and pages of notes on the Kindle version of the book to add to my client’s knowledge base. There is one recommendation that Julia Ross makes that I had trouble with. She advocates a lot of animal protein in the diet. I know a lot of emotionally adjusted vegetarians and vegans. I don’t feel that the amount of animal protein she’s suggesting is right for everyone, or that it’s the only way to go. It is a large disagreement, but if you keep it in mind as you use the book, you'll be exposed to amazing amounts of useful information that can really make a difference.

This is one of those books that made me say "ah-ha" a dozen times. It will have a steady place on my bookshelf as a reference that I will religiously re-read.

After close to 10 years of average health, and consistent battles with insomnia, poor nutrition, caffeine addiction, and the "blahs" this book is reads like a journal of my symptoms...and gives all natural remedies.

It is VERY easy to read and follow. All of the recommended supplements can be found at your local Health or Whole Foods This is one of those books that made me say "ah-ha" a dozen times. It will have a steady place on my bookshelf as a reference that I will religiously re-read.

In 3 weeks of taking the supplements recommended I feel like i have had a much needed "brain chemistry tune up." I fell more energy, have been more emotionally balanced, am sleeping REGULAR HOURS (without the aid of drugs) and felt more consistently "happy" than i have in years. The total cost of the supplements was around $200 and worth every penny.

This was a real wake-up call of what I have been doing (or not doing) to contribute to health malfunctions...and the path to the light is cleared.
