Curing Bipolar Disorder ‘They {the medical establishment} hate that word {cure}, like the devil hates holy water’ Dr. Royal Raymond Rife ======================================... Intestinal Dysbiosis/Candida Overgrowth ‘All diseases begin in the gut’ Hippocrates 460-370BC Mental illness starts not in the Brain but the Gut. Do you have digestive problems like colic, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation, and malnourishment {are you very skinny and find it difficult to put on weight?}, and do you have a white/yellow-coating on your tongue? Do you suffer from frequent headaches, mood swings, depression, fatigue, and other symptoms related to ‘candida overgrowth?’ Read 'Gut And Psychology Syndrome' By. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, NMedSci{neurology}, MMedSci{nutrition} This doctor, who has a clinic in Cambridge for treating mental illnesses like Autism, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Bipolar Disorder. Her son suffered from Autism, she found the cure and the root cause, and believes that all mental illness can be cured. I found that my bipolar disorder was caused or worsened by Candida overgrowth or Candida Related Complex. You should consult a Naturopathic Doctor {not a homeopath, they're different}, a Nutritionist that has treated Bipolar disorder before, and an orthomolecular medicine doctor. Candida thrive on sugar, so Cut out all sugar, unstable/imbalanced blood sugar levels can cause depression and hyperactivity, replace table sugar with Xylitol {much more healthier and beneficial and tastes the same in the same portions! you wont notice too much of a difference, don’t go near NutraSweet or Aspartame, monosodium glutamate - avoid like the plague}.Cut out stimulants like caffeine, and soda soft drinks. S. Boulardii is a good probiotic that flushes out candida from the body. Look into Kefir Making, this home-made free probiotic drink in itself will bring you much improvement in your mental health and well being, all you need is Kefir Grains to get started, google ‘Kefir Making’ and look at Doms Kefir Making website, it tells you everything you want/need to know. ======================================... Fasting & Detoxification Do a detox fast a 3-day apple fast, only red/golden delicious apples, and fresh water, along with coffee enema's, this is all stated in 'Cure your acne in 3 days' but it works great for bipolar disorder, most BP's have bad skin according to one conventional website i was reading. This will help rid your body of the accumulated toxins affecting your brain, and kill a lot of Candida Yeast. See the outlined 3-day fast here, although for acne, it will work for bipolar disorder also: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;... Recent studies have shown that Prozac {a popular antidepressant} has anti-fungal/candida properties, and inhibits its growth, this is due to Serotonin. Further, Sodium Valporate {used as a mood stabiliser} has been shown to stop the growth of harmful pathogenic microorganisms/worms in the gut. This is very interesting findings, as it supports that mental illness is due to problems in the gut or intestinal dysbiosis. Go on the anti-candida diet. Source: 'The Yeast Connection' Book Drink Alkali water, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to every litre of purified water you drink, this will prevent disease and reduce the growth of Candida. Source: Mr X Acne e-book Look also into Gerson Therapy/Juicing, this has cured many diseases, not just cancer, it will help with mental illness. But start this after you have rid yourself of candida. ======================================... Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies -Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega 3 supplements or Carlson’s Brand 2-3g per day has been shown in scientific studies to reduce manic-depression significantly. Strictly, the brands mentioned as they are pure pharmaceutical grade, and are used in clinical trials, plus the Carlson’s Brand has added fat-soluble vitamins. Google it to see the research with omega 3 and its remarkable effects on mental illness, yet more evidence that mental illness is due to nutritional deficiencies, which has been aggravated by Candida overgrowth/Intestinal Dysbiosis. -EM Power Plus + by TrueHope, has been shown to be very effective, look at the testimonies on mcmillans BiPolar website. Personally i have not used this, as my current nutrition programs works great. -A multivitamin/ mineral supplement in a bioavailable form, E.g . Higher Nature brand SAMe - 400mg per day, this will boost your energy levels. And has been called the ‘instant antidepressant’, please have the histamine blood test done with the help of a mental-health orientated nutritionist, before taking this. If you are high-histamine {google it}, you will need to take methionine 1000-2000mg per day. ======================================... Getting to the ‘Cause’ of mental illness Get blood tests, to test for: - Histamine {high histamine is the cause of many bipolar type symptoms, highly recommend this test} -Nutritional deficiencies/Nutritional profile. - Adrenal exhaustion, - Homocysteine, - Pyroluria, http://www.kryptopyrrole.com/ - Allergies, Allergies to certain foods can cause psychological problmes/mental instability, the most common offenders are Milk, Gluten, Egg, in that order, try eliminating each one for atleast 72hours and see how you feel. - Candida Comprehensive Stool test, or D-Mannitol Urine Test {best and most accurate, bu hard to find a lab/scientist that does this, as its new} - Thyroid disorders, including Wilson's Thyroid disorder, although this involves monitoring youe body temperature immediately on waking, I think it should be above 97.5F, I am not sure, check this first/research. -heavy metal toxicity, Ever heard some on say his as 'Mad as a Shoe Maker', well shoe makers used to use harmful chemicals like mercury, lead which made them go mad. Your nutritionist can arrange these test through a local lab, or you could..., Biolab in London does this. ======================================... The Cure for Mental illness was Found Decades Ago!!! Read Carl Pfeiffer's PhD book 'Nutrition and Mental Illness', he was a pioneer with orthomolecular medicine and cured many people of bipolar disorder. The Brain Bio Centre in London continues his work, as does the one in Princeton US, although it is very expensive. And in my opinion you can recover and save the money if you read and search for the knowledge. Dr. Carl Pfieffer MD PhD cured bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression, OCD and many other mental illnesses, 30 years ago, he used mega doses of bitamins/mineral to cure the patient, he claimed Schizophrenics had a genetic predisposition to be dificient of niacin. And Bipolars were High Histamine, which can be reduced by taking Vitamin C 1000 - 2000mg as Magnesium Ascorbate and L-Methionine amino acid supplement. Exercise as much as you can! especially in the morning, 30mins per day minimum, or Yoga, swimming, meditation, do something relaxing. Take Coenzyme Q10 30mg to boost energy levels, when you feel tired, also SAMe. ======================================... Knowledge is Power Watch the videos on youtube.com, type in 'psychetruth' and watch the 'Nutrition by Natalie' videos especially. Take 5HTP to boost the feel good serotonin levels, and melatonin at night if you are having sleep problems. Since the circadian clock of bipolar in usually out of synch. If this is the case, watch the sunrise, and set, this will help synchronise your clock and sleep patterns to normality. ======================================... Why does my Doctor/Psychiatrist not know this? Conventional medicine is crap at treating mental illness, alternative medicine has the answers. Just try it out first, regardless of what your Dr. will tell you. Just try it. Psychiatrists make a lot of money from chronic life long mental illnesses, which they claim is genetic and incurable, which is a load of BS. Further drug companies make a lot of money from you; since most mental illness cannot be cured {according to the Doctors, since they are merely repeating what they learnt at med school} you have to stay on medication for a life-time {as maintenance} Psychiatrists examine mental illness from various angles, although they are helpful, they do not address the cause of chronic mental illnesses like BP disorder. Psychiatrists will look at genetics, childhood experiences, and psychological influences, the last thing they will consider looking at is your digestive system. Strange that, since medical history gives plenty of examples where severe psychiatric conditions were cured simply by ‘cleaning out’ the patients gut. Unfortunetly Dr. Carl Pfieffer MD PhD could not afford the expensive $100M+ clinical trials demanded by conventional medicine, as 'evidence', so his work is ignored by doctors, but accepted by naturopaths, nutritionists and herbalists. Renowned Japanese Professor Kazudzo Nishi, estimates that 1 in 10 psychiatric conditions are due to self-intoxificiation coming from the gut, the odds are muh higher for the westerner, due to poor diet, abundant use of antibiotics/lack of probiotics in diet/fermented food.

Chinese Medicine, which would include acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine among other things, does indeed have treatment options for bipolar disorder. Mind you, these are TREATMENTS, not necessarily CURES. I have seen many people improve their condition significantly over time with regular acupuncture treatments, often in conjunction with daily herbal therapy. However DO NOT stop taking your current meds. You should consult with a practitioner of Chinese Medicine (one who includes herbal therapy as part of his/her practice) and try to have him/her work with your regular MD or Psychiatrist. It may be possible to reduce your dependency on the drugs (and eventually the Chinese treatments, one would hope) over time--but don't rush it.

Eat muesli two hours before exercising to boost fat burning while you train. Slow to digest, muesli takes longer to get through your system, so is less probably be turned into fat and still offers you a good energy boost.

Lynna Originally Answered: What alternative medicine, no side effects, will help me stop urinating all the time and straining my bladder?
Alternative treatment for cystitis may emphasize eliminating all sugar from the diet and drinking lots of water. Drinking unsweetened cranberry juice not only adds fluid, but is also thought to help prevent cystitis by making it more difficult for bacteria to cling to the bladder wall. A variety of herbal therapies are also recommended. Generally, the recommended herbs are antimicrobials, such as garlic (Allium sativum), goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), and bearberry (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi), and/or demulcents that soothe and coat the urinary tract, including corn silk and marsh mallow (Althaea officinalis). Homeopathic medicine can also be effective in treating cystitis. Choosing the correct remedy based on the individual’s symptoms is always key to the success of this type of treatment. Acupuncture and Chinese traditional herbal medicine can also be helpful in treating acute and chronic cases of cystitis.
