Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2019 -- October is Depression Awareness Month. The World Health Organization named depression the number 1 cause of ill health and disability worldwide with more than 300 million people living with depression across the globe. Research shows that depression raises the risk of: Alzheimer's and other dementias, diabetes, stroke, hypertension, sleep disorders, infection, substance abuse, suicide, and early death from those with heart disease. Based on twenty years of research, there is now a proven, easy to use program that brings relief to chronic sufferers of depression. Instead of working to find the roots of one's distress, this approach helps one create a new relationship to depression and improve the symptoms and quality of life by changing how one relates to painful thoughts and feelings. Some cognitive therapy approaches try to suppress symptoms and replace negative thoughts with positive ones, which is rarely successful. This mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) approach includes easy breath exercises, meditations, and innovative visualizations to help people release painful thoughts. These techniques can be used with or without medication. The goal is, not eliminating depression, but creating a new relationship to it that enables one to live their life without depression being the driving force. Stuart Eisendrath MD, Founding Director of UCSF Depression Center, joins Dr. Paula Joyce on Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit radio program will be discussing this on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel, Thursday, June 6, at 8AM Pacific Time.
Dr. Stuart Eisendrath, MD, is the author of When Antidepressants Aren't Enough: Harnessing the Power of Mindfulness to Alleviate Depression and the founding director of the University of California San Francisco Depression Center. A senior clinician and research psychiatrist at UCSF, his lectures on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) for University of California TV have been viewed more than 1.5 million times. His therapeutic approach has been scientifically validated in research funded by the National Institute of Health. He has been teaching MBCT for over fifteen years and is a founding board member of the National Network of Depression Centers. Visit him online at http://www.stuarteisendrath.com
