Bipolar disorder, also called manic depression, is a brain disorder that causes dramatic mood swings and affects energy levels and the ability to function. The periods of extreme highs and lows are called episodes of mania and depression. These symptoms can result in damaged relationships, poor performance at school or work, and even suicide. Fortunately, bipolar disorder can be treated.
Occasionally, severe episodes of mania or depression include symptoms of psychosis, such as hallucinations or delusions. These symptoms tend to reflect the extreme mood state at the time.
Brain Inflammation: Inflammatory conditions such as periodontal disease, autoimmune disorders and cardiovascular disease can trigger the excitatory neurotransmitters to become over stimulated.
Neurotransmitter Imbalance: Mood swings can result from neurotransmitter imbalances, as our emotions are based on the release of these chemical messengers.
Nutritional Deficiencies: Our brains depend on a variety of nutrients to produce the neurotransmitters that regulate our emotions. Failure to get enough of these vital nutrients can have a negative effect on our feelings, energy levels, ability to concentrate, and other important functions.
Other factors that may influence bipolar disorder are hormone imbalances, impaired methylation, and the use of illicit or prescription drugs.
Laboratory testing may help to determine the contributing factor or factors causing your bipolar symptoms. With these results, your healthcare adviser can work with you to develop a treatment plan to correct any deficiencies or imbalances, remove allergens, detoxify, and increase digestive health. This individualized regimen may include dietary changes, neurotransmitter support, probiotics, multivitamins, or other supplementation.
