According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) in 2015, 40 million Americans over the age of 18 were affected by anxiety — roughly 18 percent of the nation's population.
In 2017, a report from the World Health Organisation signified that at a global level, over 300 million people are estimated to suffer from depression, equivalent to 4.4% of the world’s population. These figures are staggering and very disturbing and it would appear that things are not improving.
Black Belt Mind provides a revolutionary approach to overcoming anxiety, depression and antidepressants. With over twenty four years in the psychology and self-help industry, author and psychologist - David Fox - shares his personal and professional experience which has helped hundreds of his clients transform their lives for the better.
Taking a somewhat controversial view of the field of psychiatry and the rampant over-prescription of medications which leads to dependence and withdrawal issues - the author provides a thought-provoking challenge to the medical community to follow the first amendment of their own profession which is to FIRST DO NO HARM. A heart warming tribute to the human spirit and ability to overcome, Black Belt Mind will guide readers through a new approach to living free of anxiety, depression and medications.
The book is a powerful testament to our human spirit and the ability that we all have to overcome practically anything that is troubling us in our lives. It offers a deep and passionate insight into what is required from anyone who wants to change their lives and overcome anxiety and depression. It also offers hope to millions who are struggling with being on or struggling to come off antidepressants.
After almost seventeen years of struggling with anxiety and depression and trying to taper off antidepressants whilst suffering through incredibly difficult withdrawal symptoms, David was able to finally achieve his ultimate goal of being completely free of antidepressant drugs and living life on his own terms again.
David provides the mindset, techniques, tools and resources to help anyone suffering with anxiety and depression to move themselves towards a happier, healthier and more fulfilling experience of life.
