Bipolar Breakthrough?

Most people who deal with depression typically exhibit prolonged symptoms of sadness, hopelessness or guilt. But this is not the case if you have bipolar disorder. Having unpredictable and severe episodes of high and low moods is probably the easiest way to describe this condition.

A Medical News Today report provided a glimmer of hope for sufferers of this condition. They claim to have unearthed the root cause of bipolar disorder and that a specific protein deficiency is responsible. 

Also known as manic depression, bipolar depression or manic depressive disorder, bipolar disorder is characterized by having up-and-down episodes of mania and depression. This condition causes unusual shifts in energy, mood and activity levels, and may hamper an individual’s ability to perform everyday tasks.

A major dilemma is how to treat bipolar disorder. The treatment options for many mental health conditions are extremely suspect. As a result, suicide rates are at a 30-year high, prescription drug abuse and overdose deaths have become a public health emergency and mental disorders are now the second most common cause of disability, having risen sharply since 1980.

All of these statistics suggest that far from being helpful, the availability of psychiatric drugs and the ease of getting them are making the situation worse. Research has revealed there are a number of safe and effective ways to address depression that do not involve drugs. So, if you suffer from an anxiety- or depression-related disorder, please consider addressing the following diet and lifestyle factors before resorting to a psychiatric drug.

One of the potential approaches is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over 5,000 years, but without the invasiveness of needles. EFT is an empowering multipurpose tool that can help cope with stress and positively impact your health.
