Publishers Weekly, 2001-12-03 Based on the results of a study they conducted, Robinson, who writes in the field of consumer health, and Brown, a specialist of women's medical issues, advocate a solution to alleviate what they call the "body blues." Characterized by such symptoms as weight gain, problems sleeping, fatigue and a decreased interest in sex, this condition, according to the authors, is caused by low serotonin activity. Brown and Robinson describe this as an annoying physiological condition that results from hormonal interactions occurring over a female's lifetime and whose chemical complexities are detailed at length here. Their findings from the controlled study and interviews they conducted with 112 women indicated that the "body blues" could be greatly relieved by a treatment they designed and named the "Levity Program." Consisting of bright light, brisk walking and six vitamins and minerals, these recommendations for mood elevation are drug free and virtually harmless. Walking five times weekly and getting more natural light has been suggested elsewhere by medical providers as beneficial to overall health. The suggested "antidepressant cocktail," a combination of vitamins, is available at any drug or health food store; however, the authors do promote their own all-in-one tablet. This will interest readers of alternative health literature and those who are convinced by the "body blues" theory. (Feb.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
