A note about Dealing with Bipolar Disorder - Natural Treatments and Useful Supplements
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Summary of Natural or Alternative Bipolar Treatment
What are some other elements to consider in dealing with bipolar disorder naturally? In summary, an alternative bipolar treatment should include psychotherapy that helps the patient and family understand and deal with the disorder, thus assisting in managing and minimizing mood swings.
Other Energy Psychology techniques can be used to decrease stress, trauma, anxiety and other triggers that can bring on a mood swing or cycling between mania and depression. The therapy should also focus on self acceptance (to minimize the guilt that can be exacerbated during depressive episodes), as well as self discipline (to assist during manic episodes when self control becomes difficult). Family therapy can be helpful to all parties so that a strong network of support remains in place during a potential crisis.
Episodes can also be managed through mindfulness meditation, regular exercise, focus on creative pursuits, and perhaps development of a spiritual path. All these elements can work to decrease the frequency and intensity of the manic / depressive episodes.
Some alternative and holistic practitioners have used light therapy to balance circadian rhythms, and dark therapy in the evening hours to induce normal sleep patterns which can be disrupted by manic episodes.
Combined, these various remedies and treatments for dealing with bipolar disorder should help bring relief to a great extent.
