Depression, Bipolar Syndrome, Anxiety & Addiction
using Natural Remedies
This site is dedicated to treating depression, anxiety and bipolar syndrome with side-effect free none drug therapies.
Dopamine levels fluctuate from too high during manic phases to to low during the depression phases, I use amino acids and herbal remedies to increase or decrease dopamine levels as needed during the different phases. Self-managing bipolar neurotransmitters is complicated it can be mastered. new effective strategies are total darkness therapy, rewiring overactivity in the stress/HPA axis with brain training, combating neuro inflammation, the BDNF hypothesis, resetting the biological clock and sleep cycles with blue light control. It is possible to live well with bipolar syndrome.
Amygdala Based Anxiety or identify and remodel anxious thinking processes for Cortex Based Anxiety.
1/ Rebalancing Neurotransmitters/brain chemistry.
Serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and phenylethylaminie can be involved in depressive illness, bipolar syndrome and addictive behaviour.
Dopamine deficiency can be involved in ADHD.
GABA and serotonin can be involved in anxiety, OCD and addiction to tranquillisers like Valium.
Some studies have shown amino acids, supplements and herbs to be as affective as antidepressant drugs. These methods are much more natural and side-effect free and pharmaceuticals, and can be a superior alternative especially in cases of mild to moderate illness or when very long term treatment is required.
I also specialise in eliminating often overlooked causes like metal toxicity, and brain allergies that can cause mental illness.
2/ Cognitive Hypnotherapy
It is possible to access problematic traumatic emotional memories and emotional triggers that contribute to mental health problems and remodel them to diminishing the problem. It's also possible to install and new ways of thinking
(cognitive strategies) creating powerful coping mechanisms.
I especially love helping people to access and remodel painful and negative feelings, memories, self-beliefs and values; lessening and removing the contribution these things have on depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and addictive behaviour.
Additional Methods:I make therapeutic use of the proven anti-depressant effect of bright-light therapy, and the ability of total darkness therapy to stabilise mania.
These treatments can also have a huge beneficial effect on correcting sleep disorders, which are so critical to managing bipolar. See link to Sleep Disorders for more.

Regrettably I have not seen these methods work with balancing brain chemistry with schizophrenia and borderline or psychotic conditions, so I do not take on such patients. However I would still highly recommend people with these conditions to stabilise their blood sugar, establish the right balance of essential oils in their diet, rule out metal toxicity and brain allergies.
Pharmaceutical drugs are not the only way to change brain chemistry and increase neurotransmitter levels, there are non-drug treatments. Additionally there are mental (psychotherapy) techniques you can use to lessen the impact of out of balance chemistry has in your life to enable you to live well with the brain you've got.
