Check out all my resources, programs and information
for all aspects of bipolar disorder by visiting:
How are you? Well today is Saturday
and the weekend.
I am actually going to a Halloween
Party today so I have to make this
quick because I have a lot to do before
I go to the party.
Something happen yesterday that kind of
made me really mad.
I was talking to a friend of mine
who asked how the “bipolar stuff”
was going. I told him great.
Then he told me how he knows
some natural doctor and as soon
as he said this, I said, “oh
geeze, here we go”, that has
a natural treatment for bipolar
My friend is a well intentioned
person and sincere.
He went on to tell me how basically
in order for my mom to do well (which
she is already but I think my friend
missed that), she needs to take
this “amazing supplement” so
she could be “okay”.
My friend says that his natural doctor
friend says that it works so great
and has “totally cured people.”.
Every time I hear this, I kind of want
to scream. The last time I heard this,
the person who was suppose to be cured
of bipolar disorder by meditating and
eating a kind of “tree bark” from
some kind of place in South America
was in a mega super episode and
incomprehensible for our interview.
The person who told me said it was because
he didn’t take enough “tree bark.” I argued it was
because the person got off his medication
that was working.
These days there are tons and tons of people
making all kinds of claims of natural products
to treat and manage bipolar disorder.
I’ve heard it all: tree bark, shark something
or another, magic berries, magic water,
something from volcanoes, special grass,
special mud, etc.
Then there are the natural people that don’t
endorse natural supplements but doing natural
things to total control bipolar. Things
like “getting in touch with yourself”,
paying a ton of money for a person to
“cleanse your soul”, weird kinds of meditation
that are not free but cost $5000, etc.
99% of what is presented to me in regards to
natural is a scam. I use to spend so much
time working to validate things brought to me.
When it comes to supplements however, I get
a ton of people sending me stuff in the mail
and writing me about this and that. Most of
them are like h.ome business programs.
One was actually found
to have NO and I repeat NO nutritional
qualities at all and was essentially
These days anyone can start their own
nutritional company and sell anything
just about. Also, note that there are
many legitimate natural doctors that
are like real MDs but have other degrees.
BUT on the flip side, there are tons
and I mean tons of con artists out
there saying they are doctors but they
are really not or got a degree from like
a NON accredited mail order/internet scam operation.
IF you are looking into natural supplements
and bipolar disorder BEWARE.
I actually put together a guide on this
if you are interested, it’s called:
“My Findings: Vitamins, Herbs, and Alternative
Therapies for Treating Bipolar Disorder”
You’d be shocked about the kind of nonsense
that I ran across. It really makes me super
mad when people try to make up natural things
to “cure” or take the place of bipolar medications.
Don’t get me wrong, my mom takes natural things
and also does natural things to work WITH her
bipolar medication. WITH. Please read that again
with her bipolar medications. They are complementary NOT
replacements. And she ALWAYS works with her
doctor. Also, my mom does natural exercises you
probably have never heard of at the advice of her
doctor but with her bipolar medications.
She doesn’t hide the fact she is taking it
from her doctor.
In my courses/systems, below:
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
you hear many, and
I mean many, horror stories from people who
got off their medication and went and took
some weird supplement or went to do some
kind of strange meditation or weird
form of “natural” therapy and went into
super episodes and created doomsday scenarios
for their loved ones.
To sum up:
Do NOT ever make any treatment without
taking to a qualified doctor first
Don’t believe outrageous claims about
supplements or weird therapies for bipolar
And no I am not a supplement hater. I take
a ton of supplements because I body build
NON competitive. I do it as a hobby. If you
met me, you’d be amazed how many supplements
I take but I still never would make claims
about bipolar stability and supplements.
Well I have to run, catch you tomorrow.
