More than three million people in North America suffer from bipolar disorder (formerly known as manic-depression), a mental illness that is now classifed as one of the ten leading causes of disability in the world. Conventional medicine currently treats bipolar with prescription drugs, however this does not offer any lasting improvement or cure. This book identifies the key contributing factors and triggers for mood disorder and offers a range of effective non-drug based approaches that can truly restore health.
This natural medicine approach is based on treating the individual rather than the diagnostic label, and addressing the underlying imbalances rather than suppressing symptoms.
The book covers a wide range of therapies, with case studies throughout to illustrate their practical application. Among the natural medicine therapies featured are biochemical therapy, biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, cranial osteopathy, family systems therapy, homeopathy, NAET (allergy elimination), amino acid/nutritional therapy.
