    This review was written for Five Keys to Dealing with Depression.
    Gregory L. Jantz, Ph.D., author of Five Keys to Dealing with Depression, creates a framework for the reader to identify the key indicators of depression in laymens terms. He also provides a list along with an explanation of how certain medical and health conditions can make one susceptible to depression or depression-like symptoms. Jantz employs a whole person approach recovery methodology. This approach consist of five aspects: intellectual, emotional, relational, spiritual, and physical. As each aspect of the whole person approach is explored, the contrast between balance and unbalance is emphasized.

    Throughout this publication, there are sidebars that contain Bible passages with an insert of reassurance of Gods love and promises. Some of these sidebars are used to remind the reader of Gods commandments regarding our conduct as Christians. Scenario based examples are utilized to illuminate patterns, behaviors, frequency, and severity. Jantz suggests a variety of activities to counteract the imbalances. He does not suggest that medication is not an option, but remarks that studies reveal the healing process improves significantly when therapy is accompanied with medication.

    I believe the book serves well from a self-awareness perspective. I was disappointed that the sidebars were not expounded upon more. This book is primarily focused on depression and its symptoms with common suggestions to counteract negative behavior. It is not a book on how to deal with depression from a scriptural viewpoint. Any spiritual content utilized is more of a sidebar or afterthought. I believe I would appreciate the book more if there was a marriage of godly principles and common counteractive methods interwoven throughout the book.

    This book is ideal for those who may show signs of depression and is useful in identifying key indicators of depression. Because it offers helpful insight it could be used as a resource for supporting those exhibiting behavioral patterns of depression.

    FIVE KEYS TO DEALING WITH DEPRESSION

    By Gregory L. Jantz, PHD with Ann McMurray

    In the book, the author describes and offers help with depression in our life. Depression has a way of ruling our life and taking the joy of living away. Depression is very dangerous and needs to be addressed for a better life.

    The author describes depression in a chapter titled Whats Wrong with Me? He then continues to offer five keys to controlling and getting rid of depression.

    The five keys are;

    Emotional balance, Intellectual integrity, Relational support, Physical healing and Spiritual support.

    He uses scripture verses that can help handling the depression and describes how our physical health will suffer from depression. There are examples from people that he has helped and methods that were used by them and can help you. If you read this book for your own help or to help someone else, you will find it very helpful and very interesting.

    This review was written for Five Keys to Dealing with Depression.
    While I have many family members and friends that have had bouts of depression, even I myself have suffered. My main reason for reading for this book by Dr. Jantz was to seek out some new insights on depression for a friend. God is so amazing. Only last week one of my ladies asked me to teach Daniel for our next bible study. Of course the first chapter of Daniel talks about the healthy appearance of the four Hebrew boys that decided not to eat rich food and wine. Then I begin to read the Five Keys to depression and on page 89 is a quote from Daniel 1:15. Key # 4 is Physical Healing and one authority says not to be too quick to diagnose depression until the physical conditions have been assessed. I had no idea all of the medical and health conditions that could contribute to depression. Diabetes, hypoglycemia, sleep apnea, hormonal imbalance all can be a trigger for symptoms of depression. Even environmental factors in our water pipes, carpet, and paints can be harmful. But the good news was healthy eating with a diet not unlike young Daniel and his friends had chosen. Once I even tried the Daniel fast for healing and was quite pleased with the results. We are told a common soda can be used to clean you copper pots or your car battery. Hmm, whats in that stuff? At any rate natural foods free of additives are definitely better for our health. We should be careful what we put in our bodies. Exercise and sleep will help improve your mood, but I think key # 5 Spiritual Support has to have the greatest impact on the physical and mental health of a person. We all can have highs and lows. It is natural to be depressed if you lose four members of your immediate family in a matter of months, but clinical depression goes beyond a feeling of sadness. It is debilitating and affects all areas of life and those we love. Prayer is a wonderful habit and God is the only one who can change a person who is mired in the deepest and darkest depression. While Christians are not immune to disease or depression we do have divine help available. The points included in the last chapter of this book are my favorite and I think the most useful. This book was given to me for my review by Rose Publishing.
