Homeopathic treatment of Bipolar mood disorder

A bipolar mood disorder can be effectively managed with homeopathy, especially in the early stages. At Life Force, Dr Shah is treating several patients with Bipolar Disorder and mostly half of the patients have had a good improvement. Homeopathic medicine helps in stabilizing mood and reducing tantrums in intensity and in frequency also. The patient becomes more communicative, the need for E.C.T/antidepressant/antipsychotic medicine reduces and excitability comes down. The condition requires patience and slowly and steadily, definite improvement can be observed.

It must be noted that those patients who are on heavy anti-depression medicines for over two years are not good candidates for homeopathic treatment.
