I had suffered severe depression regularly for over forty years. I had tried conventional anti depressants many times, but found the side effects too severe to cope with. I read Dr Puri's book with an open mind,and was impressed with its contents. I followed his recommendations, and I have not suffered a single episode of clinical depression since. This is in a four year period. I can now say I am 'depression free'. It feels like a 'miracle' as it had ruled my life and career prospects for so long.There have been only exceptionally good effects, and certainly no negative side effects from the special EPA capsules recommended. My husband died two years ago, and although I was devastated at the time, I did not become clinically depressed. I now pass this information on to anyone who I think can benefit. The information contained within this book has literally transformed my life. I cannot praise it highly enough...D.W.

I benefitted greatly from using EPA's at the doses recommended in this book, having been bed-bound with depression for almost a year, and made 100 times worse by conventional antidepressants, which actually made me feel suicidal which I didn't feel off the tablets.
I only came across this book through a very strange set of coincidences, or what I as a Christian like to think of as "God-incidences":
During one of my rare lucid spells whan I was searching the internet for Sunday school resources, the first book that came up in the 'religious' category in the search engine was this title! Thinking maybe someone was trying to tell me something, I immediately ordered the book. When I read it I nearly fell through the floor. I used to sell a version of high EPA capsule licensed for heart disease nearly 20 years ago as a pharmaceutical sales rep. so understood the pharmacology behind the substance and was totally convinced of its safety. When I went to my GP, they had never come across the product or its use in depression, but researched it on the internet and seeing all the medical trial work related to fish oils improving mind performance and depression, were happy to let me try. Within weeks I was feeling better, and able to review my life and take up full-time study again a few short months later.
I have recommended this book to many friends suffering from depression - some have benefitted from taking EPA, some have not. You won't know till you try.

I can't understand some of the other reviewers total negativity towards this book. Is it such a crime to offer the possibility of an alternative/complementary solution to prescription medication that cause such terrible side-effects?
I've suffered with bouts of clinical depression for over 20 years and had already come across high EPA fish oils when I read Puri's book "The Natural Way to Beat Depression". Thanks to daily dosages of high EPA oils (exactly, as prescribed by Puri) I now consider myself to be back in control. I no longer suffer with the constant anxiety, or those long lasting black moods. If I get down, it's a normal downer and not a depression downer. I even got through my father's recent death without having another breakdown. And, I no longer take any medication - with my doctor's approval.
I'm sure that the advice Puri offers won't help everyone, but he never promises it will. The techniques he suggests are safe and natural and can be tried out over a short period of time, alongside existing medication. It may provide the whole answer, or just a part, or nothing at all.
Please read this book, what have you to lose? And, it really could change your life for the better.

Just like anti-depressants, EPA works for some people and not others. But at least there are no significant side-effects from EPA.

Fluoxetine is the generic name for Prozac. You can search the Pubmed medical research website for: Comparison Fluoxetine EPA

The research comparing Prozac, EPA, and Prozac in combination with EPA concludes:

"In the present 8 week trial EPA and fluoxetine had equal therapeutic effects in major depressive disorder. EPA + fluoxetine combination was superior to either of them alone."

The number of responders in each group was 50% for Prozac, 56% for EPA and 81% for Prozac and EPA in combination.

EPA is not a guaranteed cure, but with a success rate just above Prozac it is obviously important. Taking EPA with an anti-depressant would appear to be worth while for those who have no response to EPA alone.

I have used high-doses of Fish Oil alone, rather than just the EPA component, for depression, and this worked for me.

I came across the book in my local library and while I had heard of the benefit of omega 3 for depression brain function through the media I hadn't realised that it is actually the EPA part of omega 3 that gives this benefical effect. So taking omega 3 on its own hadn't helped me at all and I had taken quite a lot of it. However when I took the advice to for a pure EPA product I very quickly made good improvement and continue to do so. I am 6 weeks into the new EPA regime. I recommend the book whole heartedly as while EPA may not work for everyone going by other reviews it is not difficult or expensive to try . I have had depression for 20 years and tried every thing. Now I am looking foward again and excited about a future.
