Orthomolecular therapies for mania: Introduction

One would ultimately want to heal key underlying causes, but until that process is completed, symptomatic approaches (e.g., stopping the mania) are often critical.

Orthomolecular therapies for mania involve:
1 Stabilizing nutrients, herbs and diet.
2 Biotype therapies, as relevant.
3 Attention to allergies/ environmental illness, Candida,  hormone balances, immune status, neurological function, and other health conditions, as relevant.
4 Moderation of mental and physical stressors
5 Medication changes only when indicated.

More to follow.

See Natural Healing for Bipolar Disorder, for detailed descriptions.
