The noonday demon : an atlas of depression

Solomon, Andrew, 1963- author
2015

The author offers a look at depression in which he draws on his own battle with the illness and interviews with fellow sufferers, researchers, doctors, and others to assess the complexities of the disease, its causes and symptoms, and available therapies. This book examines depression in personal, cultural, and scientific terms. He confronts the challenge of defining the illness and describes the vast range of available medications, the efficacy of alternative treatments, and the impact the malady has on various demographic populations, around the world and throughout history. He also explores the thorny patch of moral and ethical questions posed by emerging biological explanations for mental illness. He takes readers on a journey into the most pervasive of family secrets and contributes to our understanding not only of mental illness but also of the human condition.

Rethink chronic pain : relieve suffering, heal your body, own your health

Brouillard, Gaétan, author
2020

At a time when as many as 1 in 5 adults suffer from chronic pain, a medical doctor and proven pain expert offers an original guide to healing and recovery. Rethink Chronic Pain identifies the physical and psychological roots of pain and recommends not one single treatment (as the vast majority of advice does) but many: Dr. Gaétan Brouillard incorporates osteopathy, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, nutrition and natural products (including cannabis and CBD) into his tried-and-tested approach. He also draws on years of experience as an emergency room doctor, clinician, and researcher to explain scientific breakthroughs in pain treatment and how to use medicine and surgery when necessary.
