"The first week I started the regime the change was amazing. My energy returned, my skin glowed, the aches and pains and heat (inflammation) in my joints went away (almost all), the gastric reflux stopped. People commented on the change in me. I was amazed at how different and positive I felt. So thank you so much." Susie, Plymouth

"I can't speak highly enough of that man, he changed my life". Doreen, Worcester 


Bipolar Disorder 

Also referred to as manic-depression, bipolar disorder is the extreme of both anxiety and depression (see notes on these conditions) but taking place at almost the same time!

The term bipolar refers to the two hemispheres of the brain where each lobe is attributed a different function. It is thought that the left is the logical, calculating hemisphere which imparts the driven, extremely goal oriented episodes of the bipolar affected individual, whereas the artistic, casual right hemisphere is thought to account for the creative aspect of bipolar sufferers.

As in all mental and psychological disorders, neurotransmitter imbalance plays a big role, only in bipolar disorder the resultant mood fluctuations take place more often and are more rapid than is seen in other psychological disorders.
All emotions are converted into chemicals in the brain, neurotransmitters - acetylcholine, noradrenalin, serotonin, dopamine, histamine etc, to name a few of the major ones - which travel along nerves and eventually reach all organs, glands and cells resulting in the expression of signs and symptoms.

Neurotransmitter balance may be affected by food allergy/intolerance, pathogenic organisms (bacteria, viruses, fungus/Candida and parasites), toxins such as metals (aluminium, lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium etc), chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, food additives and preservatives etc), radiation (mobiles and phone masts, DECT phones, background radiation, air travel etc), medicinal drugs ( anti-malarials, anti depressants, drugs for hypertension etc) and not forgetting emotional highs and lows such as grief, fear, despair, etc from the stresses of life.

Treatment of bipolar disorder involves removal of the possible causes and ensuring an adequate supply of the major factors in healing and regeneration such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids of omega 3 and 6, the friendly bacteria, probiotics and soluble and insoluble fibre from whole grains, fruit and vegetables.
Last but certainly not least in the treatment of depression is to ensure a plentiful intake of water to avoid dehydration, as well as exposure to sunlight where possible and regular exercise. Sugar and caffeine as well as recreational drugs are perhaps the most deleterious factors in any condition which affects the mood and emotions and must be avoided at all times.
