Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn PhD. who has a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program in Mass is an advocate of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. M.B.C.T. is designed for people who suffer from stress, anxiety and depression. *Jon Kabat-Zinn, along with Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale have authored an excellent book called: “The Mindful Way Through Depression” which you may find to be quite helpful. There is also a type of therapy called: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which may be worth checking into. Boosting up your immune system daily with Vit. C, Fish Oil, and sublingual B12, B5, and Folic Acid also helps. “The website mbct.com http://www.mbct.com/ has helpful information on M.B.C.T. http://www.mindfulnesscds.com/books.html is Jon Kabat-Zinn’s website containing all his books. “The Mindful Way Through Depression” can be purchased at his website or through Barnes and Noble or on Amazon at a lower cost.
