For the love of me, I couldn’t come up with a single solid program to combat depression on the internet.
Seriously, You have no idea how little there is on the internet regarding self-help programs for depression
And most of those that I could find and try out simply sucked.
Either they were too personal, too sugary or just plain useless.
The creators of these programs tended to stuff them with a lot of fluff and only give the most basic of advice.
And then they would ask 99$ dollars per month
Then this guy came along
Who is James Gordon?
I stumbled upon James Gordon by complete chance.
I was looking for reviews of anti-depression products and there he was.
A former sufferer of depression who found his own way, and through hard work was able to get better.
The reviews seemed positive, but when I actually got onto his website my first reaction was “this seems like a huge scam”.
Sure, he was mentioned on a bunch of big websites, but it honestly looked like he was trying too hard to sell me his stuff.
All the same, I got his program and sent him an email with a couple of questions about his product.
He answered me within a couple of hours.
This was odd, I wasn’t used to such a level of dedication and support from any program that I’ve ever purchased.
He answered all of my questions and was very through with them, too.
For that reason alone I decided to try his program out – at worst, if I ended up disliking it, I could always get a refund.
The Actual program breaks down into 4 E-book guides and 2 other video courses that you can buy if you liked the previous material.
These Ebooks include:
The “Destroy Depression” E-book
CBT Workbook and Tools
The Depression Free Mediterranean Diet
In my honest opinion, only when properly read through and applied simultaneously, do these books have great value.
If you only take bits and pieces off each one of them you will not draw practically any value off of them.
The first thing you should know about this system is that it isn’t a magical solution, you will be working long and hard to see any improvement.
You will need to read and start applying all of his tips and tricks right off the bet.
The main book of all of these books, and the one that amounts to an introduction to the entire system.
It starts by describing Gordon’s personal experiences as a depression sufferer – How many antidepressants and pills he was consuming, how regular psychiatry did him no good and how he sought his own solution as a result of that.
Like I’ve said before, this part pretty much resonated with me, so I kept reading.
He then brought up a pretty ridiculous statistic about 80% of people suffering from depression. and started talking about stuff like the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale and the fact that there’s no such thing as “magic pills”
His own mindset reminded me of my own, so that was pretty interesting.
Then there’s the actual book.
Basically, it breaks down into 7 chapters, each of which discusses one thing that you can do in order to cure your depression.
These chapters are:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Help yourself by helping others
The writing is very solid and easy to understand – The book does give some highly practical advice.
Not only that, but it also discusses some very underrated issues such as SAD (Seasonal Anxiety Disorder) and sleeping disorders that are caused by depression.
The one thing that comes to mind after reading this book is how it doesn’t have any fluff to it.
The advice was on point and could be applied immediately by anyone.
It’s clear that this book is all about action.
The biggest issue I had with this book was the fact that in his attempt to keep things short and “to the point”, Gordon skipped on some very important data.
For example, some his tips on the “sleep” subject could’ve been more thorough, and his introduction was a tad lacking there aside from that
This workbook is a pretty good fit by itself, providing the general basis for Gordon’s entire system, but it is only complemented by the other E-books in the program.
All the same, for what it is, the destroy depression E-Book is solid and gives you lots of value.
In terms of cost-to-word ratio, the program ends up being underwhelming in terms of length-for-price.
But, believe it or not, that’s actually a good thing.
This program has close to zero fluff and offers a huge variety of advice that other programs would waste many hours of your time before actually handing them over
Now, with it being a Clickbank Product, the 60-day no-questions-asked refund policy was exactly what I needed.
Seriously, if a program is non-refundable, I won’t even bother looking into it.
Nor would I ever recommend it to any of you.
If you ended up disliking it for whatever reason, feel free to refund it and get your money back, just like that.
The author knows that no single solution is going to fit everyone, but the vast majority of people could still benefit from it, no questions about it.
Covers a variety of methods to treat depression
Little to no fluff
has a 60-day refund option
Relatively cheap (when compared to therapy)
Awesome support, Gordon replies to emails fast
Lifetime access to a program that actually bothers to update itself
Isn’t a magical pill and will require effort to apply
People with extremely severe depression won’t benefit from it fully
In its attempt to be highly practical it has glossed over some details here and there
Among all depression-based self-help products, I daresay that this one is my favorite.
It is highly practical and promotes many ideas and courses of action that I personally believe in.
Honestly, considering it’s fully refundable, there’s very little resistance to actually trying it out.
You should definitely give it a go, but only if you are truly ready to make the effort to change your life for the better.
