January 22, 2018 –Dallas, Texas.  In a new book, Healthy, Happy and Free: Spirit-Soul-Body Solutions for Healing from Depression, medical researcher and wellness book author Connie Strasheim shares a comprehensive, novel approach to healing from depression, using tools that address the health of the spirit, mind and body.

Depression is epidemic in the United States, with one in every six people having experienced the condition sometime during their lives. Further, the incidence of depression has been increasing exponentially, due to the proliferation of manmade toxins in the environment, social isolation, lack of relationship with God, and other factors. 

Depression is a spirit-mind-body disorder, yet most resources on depression focus on healing only one or two aspects of the person. For instance, some advocate medication, supplements or nutrition to correct a chemical imbalance in the body, while others focus on cognitive and behavioral tools to address harmful beliefs and behaviors. Still other resources focus on spiritual health and/or relationship with God.

Yet, Ms. Strasheim’s more than decade-long battle with a severe neurological disease called Lyme, fifteen years of medical research, and ministry to hundreds of others with depression have taught her that the condition isn’t just caused by one thing, whether a spiritual problem, emotional trauma, or physical and environmental factors. Commonly, it’s a combination of all of these things. What’s more, because the spirit, soul and body are interconnected, what happens to one part of the person often affects the other two, so Ms. Strasheim contends that it is necessary to treat depression on all three levels.

Consequently, Healthy, Happy and Free: Spirit-Soul-Body Solutions for Healing from Depression provides a comprehensive approach to healing that focuses on relationship with God and strengthening the spirit as the cornerstone to healing. In addition, it provides solutions for the physiological, or biochemical causes of depression, along with lifestyle tools that address the root causes of disease. These tools heal the person from the ground up, rather than simply control or mask symptoms, as do pharmaceutical medications.

Some of the topics covered in Healthy, Happy and Free include:


·       How to experience and know the love of God

·       Why it is always God’s will to heal, and how to receive divine healing, through relationship with God and prayer

·       How to create new neural pathways in the brain using the Word of God, affirmations and other brain retraining tools

·       Foods that heal the brain and rest of the body

·       Supplements and other natural agents that restore brain chemistry

·       The role of toxins, infections and inflammation in depression and how to mitigate their effects

·       Creating a lifestyle that fosters wellness

·       Discovering and healing emotional trauma through prayer and cognitive-behavioral tools

·       Discovering and developing one’s purpose in life

 Ms. Strasheim is uniquely qualified to write on this topic because she has overcome lifelong, severe depression caused by multiple traumas and neurological illness. She is also a recognized authority in both holistic medicine and healing prayer ministry.

Ms. Strasheim peppers the book with anecdotes of her own story and battle with depression, to encourage readers throughout. Her experience and research allow her to provide hope and practical help to those who have not found it through the avenues that have been made available to them.


The book retails on Amazon for 19.99 and Ms. Strasheim’s website: for 14.99.  Readers who wish to receive a signed copy may purchase the book from:
