"This book seeks to take the reader well beyond traditional, pharmaceutical-based treatment of Bipolar Disorder. It also seeks to expand readers' understanding of what natural medicine actually is. The information presented is based on research and interviews with physicians and other professionals, not from other books. Part I of the book covers the history, definition, symptomology, and suspected causes of Bipolar Disorder. Part II details holistic treatments of the disorder. It includes in-depth accounts of the protocols of several successful, holistic practitioners, laced with case studies and quotes from those practitioner's patients.
According to the author, effectively treating Bipolar Disorder, rather than just managing its symptoms, requires addressing the disorder at all levels of human existence, from the physical to the spiritual. The book contains lots of specific information, about both the suspected causes (vitamin deficiencies, stress, toxicity, etc.) and the holistic protocols being used successfully today. Consider displaying it with Marohn's earlier work, Natural Medicine First Aid Remedies, for a great take-action combo." -Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer
