From the Publisher

More than three million people in the United States suffer from bipolar disorder, a mental illness that is now classified as one of the ten leading causes of disability in the US and the world. While psychiatric drugs may control bipolar disorder, they do not offer any lasting cure and carry the risk of lasting side effects.

The Natural Medicine Guide to Bipolar Disorder offers an alternative: innovative, natural, non-drug based approaches that treat the underlying imbalances and restore a healthy mind.

Medical journalist Stephanie Marohn identifies the key contributing factors and triggers for mood disorder and profiles a wide range of natural medicine therapies that can truly restore health: biochemical therapy, applied psychoneurobiology, biological medicine, nutritional therapy, cranial osteopathy, allergy elimination, homeopathy, amino acid/nutritional therapy, and more. This fully revised edition offers the latest statistics, research, and interviews with physicians and other healing professionals who are leaders in the field. Each approach is illustrated with case studies and includes resources for additional information.

This is an accessible approach to bipolar disorder, full of helpful information and anecdotes that will be a valuable resource for those who suffer from this disorder as well as their family and friends.

Topics: Medicinal, Mental Illness, Psychological, Informative, and Case Studies

Looking out over the Pacific near her home in L.A., Ricki Lake takes a deep breath. It’s been a little more than a week since she found out that her ex-husband, Christian Evans, committed suicide, and the actress and former talk show host is still reeling from the news. “I’m in disbelief,” she says softly. “I have some bouts of peace, but it’s hard to swallow that this was supposed to happen.” For Lake, Evans’s death at age 45 also meant the end of any hope that the two “were going to find a way back together again,” she adds. “I knew there wasn’t a high probability for that happening, but I h

Mental Illness Top Cause of Misery: Study

What makes people miserable? Traditionally, economists have pointed to unemployment and poverty as the biggest drivers of despair. But new research suggests such analysis is flawed. “We keep on finding in every country that the mental health problems are the biggest causes of misery,” says Richard Layard of the London School of Economics, who along with colleague Sarah Flèche analyzed happiness and satisfaction surveys from around the world. In a paper published in January in the journal Kyklos, Flèche and Layard found that the correlation between mental illness and misery was strong even wh

Listen To The Voices In Your Head

ONE AFTERNOON ABOUT SEVEN YEARS AGO, Marty Hadge tentatively stepped outside a two-family, white-shingled house in the former mill town of Holyoke, Massachusetts. Hadge, who was pushing 50, lived in one of the units, alone. He wore 280 pounds on his 5-foot-2 frame, a side effect of consuming antipsychotic medication for several decades. His skin was marred by a haphazard array of tattoos and scars from hundreds of small cuts he’d inflicted on himself. Going out in public wasn’t easy for Hadge, but he was desperate to save his own life. He didn’t have a car and was afraid of taking the bus, so
