Overcoming Emotional, Mental, and Addictive Disorders

Do you feel like depression, anxiety, or addiction has hijacked your life? Mental and emotional disorders impact every part of society – and disrupt life for even the most spiritually devout, intelligent, and respected people. Unfortunately, many who suffer from these devastating disorders seek healing through costly, and sometimes harmful, counseling and medications – measures which may bring temporary relief but do not necessarily correct the underlying problem.

Jacquelyn Sheppard explores the vital connection between your body, mind, and spirit and gives you practical tools to:
  • Understand the connection between your mind and body, and discover root causes of depression, addiction bipolar disorder, OCD, and other illnesses.
  • Identify the life cycles of each disorder – prenatal, childhood, adolescence and adulthood – so you can overcome each cycle using the right tools.
  • Gain practical “know-how” to effectively combat these disorders through life-giving steps of health transformation.

Silent Takeover delivers ancient wisdom, accessible science, simple nutrition, and life experience, providing a clear blueprint to help you pioneer a new life.

Jacquelyn Sheppard’s book Silent Takeover gives an eye-opening look into the hidden dangers of seemingly innocuous elements in our environment. Our brains are not separate from our bodies. Foods, sound, and light affect the production of chemicals in our bodies that affect the way we think and behave. Depression, anxiety, and addiction often have a physical as well as spiritual root. Jackie has been researching information for years and wants to help those who have been hijacked so they can regain good health in both body and mind.

Jacquelyn Sheppard has taken a complex subject that is difficult to explain, and using easy to read and understand language she has written a well-documented explanation of that subject. She has an excellent command of her material, and her handling of the subject matter is to be commended. It is definitely a book that will help someone understand a new biochemical concept of the human body.
