Spotting the Signs of Bipolar Disorder
What are the symptoms and signs of bipolar disorder?
Very few people know that bipolar disorder and manic depression are the same disease. Come to think of it, few people know much about the disease at all, even though it affects close to six million adults in the US alone.
It is only recently that the disorder has gotten more attention, after a handful of well known celebrities like Britney Spears battled it publicly.
Bipolar disorder is something that often goes untreated for several reasons - the sufferer may not know that they have it and are often too embarrassed to admit there is a problem, while others simply dont know what signs to look for in loved ones. The signs of bipolar disorder are often chalked up to someone being moody or having a bad case of PMS, but irregular mood swings are very much a red flag that needs to be acknowledged.
While bipolar disorder is often described as an illness that causes the person suffering to flip between a state of depression and extreme elation, there is actually much more to the disorder than just the erratic moods and behavior.

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.
