“We were never designed for the sedentary, indoor, sleep-deprived, socially-isolated, fast-food-laden, frenetic pace of modern life.”

- Stephen Ilardi, PhD

 

Across the industrialized modern world, clinical depression has reached epidemic proportions, despite a staggering increase in the use of antidepressant medication. In fact, researchers have identified a set of illnesses that are pervasive across the Western world and yet rare among aboriginal populations. Depression is now the single leading cause of work-related disability for adults under 50. And yet there is strong evidence that depression can be both prevented and treated through a set of straightforward changes in lifestyle. Our research has demonstrated that TLC is an effective treatment for depression, with over 70% of patients experiencing a favorable response, as measured by symptom reduction of at least 50%.
