i still insist that BP is a biological disorder of some sort. So while other psych illness suffer from symptoms which seem purely psychological, in BP there are physical or say mechanical phases or wave cycles of depression then mania. To me there is a missing link there is something like a deficiency in some hormones, neurotransmitters, etc...

what is new to me in the following link the possibility to know the deficiency in which neurotransmitter through your urine test. it has been claimed that no test can assure your psych illness or more correctly which and which. let alone the comorbidity,...

God has not created an illness without creating its cure this is the philosophy adopted by older civilizations and religions, so possibly B6, B12, sam-e, tryptophan, glutamine, etc...GABA, etc... omega-3 can lift this disease. for example in my case while all the family eat fish, i can eat a 6 pounds fish at once without being satisfied. Sure there must be in it something i lack in my body, omega3, gaba

The problem when you consult a pdoc he resorts directly to an MS, this what they teach them in the medical school. I want to draw the attention, that if we go back in history using a time machine of H.G. Wells then in the old ages sure there were manic depressive people. Alright. Don't convince me that their behavior is so irrational like ours. True they can be elated, depressed, or used upon exorcists to extract the devil in them sometimes or in asylum if very bad, but here we all suffer continuously. I believe this is from the side effects of our deadly drugs. I am not encouraging people of take them off or dispense of them, for there is no other KNOWN alternative so far, but i am just saying there must be other routes unexplored yet, and it's of our duty to go discovering them. I am not looking for a magic pill i am suggesting we go to mother nature for a solution

Yes bipolar is clinically complex given that people with bipolar are at the same time as they experience mania are physically sped up as well and can have psychomoter agitation, increased libido and a decrease in sleep which can have a physical effect. Also the fact that there are many anti-convulsants that are used to treat bipolar showing that there is over activity in receptors of the limbic system. Some natural remedies have been shown to work but none so far has a full effect as a mood stabilizer but as I've noted fish oil has been shown to have mood stabilization properties and the medication Lovaza which is an anti-cholesterol medication is in experimental use for bipolar. There are of course many other natural remedies that treat a variety of disabilities and diseases that are in clinical study for their specific use and the goal of the clinical studies is to isolate the active compound and use that to develop a medication. This technique has been used since asprin was developed but now the research is conducted in a far more scientific manner and has shown productive results and continues to.

I agree that bipolar, schizophrenia (and family,) depression, and anxiety disorders are all physical disorders that effect the brain. (Just like Autism and Epilepsy.) It just is harder to solve because it is the brain itself and the function rather than a tumor or injury.

Also in the past "crazy" people were either locked up and demonized or exulted and worshiped. Read Withering Heights, it's all about bipolar and suicide. It's not new. :(
