Volume: 1. How the Moyer family coped with four generations of dysfunctional brains;
Volume 2. how conventional psychiatry relies on a DSM 'bible' to label and then medicate;
Volume 3. how a range of medical, genetic, dietary, environmental, infection and metabolic conditions can cause or contribute to bipolar symptoms.
A great aunt suicided before the family even knew she was depressed. The author's bipolar father lived through years of ups and downs and had the author on the edge of a precipice of dread. Author David Moyer became a mental health professional but faced a mid-life crisis when his son came down with bipolar symptoms. Training as a social worker wasn't enough to solve his son's problems. Conventional psychiatry wasn't good enough either. Although the usual bipolar medications quelled his son's religious zeal, he became less than normal due to negative effects. Schizophrenia medications stopped the visions but added more side effects.
An empathetic and concerned father, social worker David Moyer scanned the Internet for 'restorative' answers. Not expecting to find real help by networking, he happened upon the Synergy system of supplements, developed in Calgary, Alberta by another concerned father of several bipolar children. Euphamistically called True Hope. Was it too good to be true or did the vitamin, mineral and amino acid nutrients in the True Hope dietary supplements really quiet his son's unquiet brain? Charting his son's progress over a five year period, David Moyer noticed that medications and hospitalizations alternated with relatively 'normal' periods but his son seemed to do better when he took his nutrients and tapered the synthetic medications.Read more ›
Moyer discusses his family history. We learn about a malady that appears to have effected distance relatives, his dad, and finally his son. We learn how it can impact a family. We learn about a health care system that too often is ineffective and, at the same time, lacks respect for the patient and loved-ones. We also learn about the incredible complexity of bipolar disorder, brain chemistry, and the myriad of potential solutions to the disorder. It is this last aspect that offers hope to those impacted by the disorder.
The is a book that both touches and educates us. A hearty thumbs-up for both a moving and informative work.

Entire food families can cause allergic reactions in susceptible people. Repeated headaches, or schizophrenic, violent, or aggressive reactions, can be an indicator. Foods such as corn, wheat, rice, dairy products, and chocolate, and certain food additives, are the most common offenders but chemicals such as petrochemicals or other substances, like mold can also cause serious problems.Read more ›
