Vitamin B12 helped me with my mood swings but selenium put a stop to them for good! Within 3 days of eating brazil nuts!!! I was shocked to say the least as i've had mood swings for decades. Brazil nuts contain 50 - 80mcg of selenium per nut depending on the soil. Selenium and vitamin B12 = highly recommended!

If she as real bipolar, I know of no natural treatment for it that is proven to work, or that has worked historically. If it's a new-fangled bipolar diagnosis such as bipolar 2, then of course those drugs won't work because she isn't actually bipolar, they're just selling her pharmaceuticals for a non-condition. So the first thing to determine is whether she's in fact bipolar, or just diagnosed as such -- this is a much abused diagnosis. If it's not real bipolar, then you have a universe of options to try because she is "just" suffering from anxiety or depression or the like. Good luck.
