KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Is it possible to overcome depression without medication? One doctor says yes and believes one of his patients is living proof it can be done.
"The use of antidepressant medication has gone up 300 percent of the last two decades, and what's happened to rate of depression? It's gone up," said Dr. Steve Ilardi.
Ilardi is the author of the book, "The Depression Cure." In it, Ilardi outlines the six steps in the "Therapeutic Lifestyle Change."
One of Ilardi's patients, Ivan Pancic, said he's benefited from Ilardi's medicine-free treatment. Pancic said for the last two years, he's lived free of depression and is now helping others beat depression without drugs.
The Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas is conducting "The Depression Cure" classes. Contact Steven Blair at 913-897-0120 if interested in attending.
