Bipolar Disorder

This is a mental disturbance that causes depression or elevated mood in different moments. These moods range from periods of extremely happy and energized behavior to very sad, or hopeless occasions.

Usually, the patient may not feel when anything is wrong. Family and friends may perceive the mood swings in activity levels, as being a bipolar disorder. Without proper treatment, such people may develop severe mania or depression.

Bipolar disorder symptoms are similar to other illnesses such as anxiety, substance abuse through alcohol or drugs, and food addiction, joined with psychotic symptoms, such as hallucinations or delusions, like schizophrenia.

Episodes of mania and depression typically come back over time. Between episodes, many people with bipolar disorder are free of mood changes, but some people may have lingering symptoms. Long-term, continuous treatment helps to control these symptoms.
An effective treatment plan should include medication and psychotherapy. Patient must be taught about how to do to develop healthy and vigorous thoughts. It is the more important piece in the rehabilitation because little importance has been given to the improvements that can be obtained when thoughts are elevated and strengthened. It effectively happens, because we are the outcome of our thoughts. We are what we think.

The medication needs to act in compliance with the patient willpower and thought invigorating, because being the bipolar disorder a mental illness, the healing process resides in mind, and sick people have to learn how to react through the correct use of their thought, avoiding depressing and unhealthy feelings.
The power of thought is the key to everything.

Thought is energetic vibration and the manifestation of the Intelligence Universal. Like sound and light, thought travels all over in vibratory waves which are recorded in the infinite ocean of matter filling the Universe. Thoughts set up real environmental climates which promote good health or disease, joy or sorrow, success or failure, well or ill-being.

Bipolar disorder is considered to be a large health problem worldwide, due to the increased rates of disability, including many times misdiagnosis, causing a delay in appropriate treatment and contributing to poorer prognoses. Medical interventions to bipolar disorders comprehend many chemical compounds including antipsychotics, mood stabilizers, and antidepressants, which in the most cases involve severe risks to the patient health causing serious collateral effects.

Dopamine is a known neurotransmitter that works in the mood cycling. It has been shown to increase its transmission during the manic phase and decreasing it during the depressive phase. Medications used to treat bipolar patients exert their effect by modulating the neurotransmission intracellular signaling, despite there are no biological tests that produce an exact and secure bipolar disorder diagnostic.

Scientists have not discovered so far, a single cause of this disturbance. Depending on the severity of the case, anticonvulsants may be used in combination with lithium or on their own. The most common treatment for bipolar disorder consists in the use of lithium carbonate, through anticonvulsants such as Carbamazepine, and Lamotrigine.

Lithium helps prevent future manic and depressive episodes. As a result, it may be prescribed for long periods of time, as maintenance therapy. It acts on a person’s central nervous system and spinal cord, although doctors don’t know how to say exactly the way how lithium works to stabilize a person’s mood.

It is supposed to help strengthen nerve cell connections in brain regions that are involved in regulating mood, thinking, and behavior. Usually, antidepressants have not been found to be of any reasonable benefit and are not recommended for use alone in the treatment.

Similarly what happens in the schizophrenia rehabilitation process, spirituality opens the door to understand and have the consciousness about what is going on, through the correct use of the inner force all people have within. Patients need to be able to use this precious resource, awakening this giant inside themselves. By the powerful use of thought and great willpower, the mania and depressive process may be weakened and ousted out.

Ultimately due to the confidence people start over to produce, they begin believing in themselves due to the healing process action. This great power resides in mind. In this stage, a supportive procedure must be applied through a settled compliance between family and medical assistance, in mutual understanding.

Through persistence and discipline, the cure gets closer. Education and will-strengthening play a fundamental role in thought control. By learning how to be fortified with worthy feelings, people create around themselves a protective shield becoming stronger and calmer; step by step they start feeling better and vigorous, getting able to move toward a healthier and productive life.

  1. I totally agree that thoughts are powerful vibrations and we can manifest many things through our own thoughts whether it be negative or positive.

    Thank you for insight of bipolar disorder and the positive reinforcement in moving forward to a healthier and more productive life.

    1. Hey, Ha Roda!

      I got happy with your comments. Nowadays, the great hardship for applying the healing process in the mental disturbances is the disdain that people and medical science have against the acknowledgment that in these cases the cure resides in mind and soul. Healthy and wholesome thoughts bring back the health and sick people have to learn how to react through the correct use of their thoughts, avoiding depressing and unhealthy feelings. The power of thought is the key to everything, and we are what we think.

  2. Hello Karl,
    Thank you for highlighting this illness and the distressing symptoms the the one afflicted, (and the family), endure.

    I looked at the ‘treatment’ and wondered if that is the right path for long-term ‘treatment’/solution.

    I could not agree with you more, this is primarily an issue of the soul. That being said, no drugs can bring solution long term. The issues, like all others begin within the mind – THOUGHTS. Until those are addressed and changed drugs do no more than mask symptoms and make the sufferer more docile and their long term side-effects are not good.

    With your knowledge of the dis – ease, are things like diet, being out in nature, being around water, art, music, strong and positive affirmations, (to name but a few), as therapy, not more impacting on the soul with beneficial effects?

    Oh yes, and with no negative side effects! 😉

    Thank you again.

    1. Hi, EJ!

      Bipolar disorder is a lifelong condition. It runs an unpredictable course of ups and downs. The best treatment for any mental illness is a combination of medication and counseling. Medication alone is not enough. To get the most out of treatment, it’s essential to educate people about this disturbance, communicate with their doctors and therapists, have a strong support system, and help themselves by making healthy lifestyle choices that may reduce their needs for medication. In such cases, the spirituality must be taken into account for bringing better results, because mental diseases are stuck in mind and soul. Patients must be taught about how to develop healthy and vigorous thoughts being the body mirrored by them. Therapies involving music and positive affirmations are always welcome. It is a disdained and more difficult piece in the patient’s rehabilitation process. It has been given little importance to the improvements obtained when applying correct use of thoughts.
      Let’s change this sad picture using these new concepts and ideas through this healing process appliance!

      All the Best to you,
      Karl Madek

  3. I agree with you 100% that our thought have so much to do with who we are. Negative thought can leads to negative outcomes, and positive thoughts would likely lead to positive outcomes. The power is in our head. Medications are not the long term solution. They can at times be more dangerous than the health conditions. Many antidepressant and antipsychotic medications have serious side effects, with the most dangerous one being increased suicidal ideation. I have some friends that are bipolar; I will definitely recommend this article to them. Your article is very informative and insightful. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hey, Hong!

      Many thanks for your constructive feedback. In fact, the power of thought is the key to everything in our lives. Thoughts remain connected to their sources as long as the feeling that generated them persists. Thoughts set up real environmental climates which promote good health or disease, joy or sorrow, success or failure, well or ill-being. Usually, patients must be taught about how to do to develop healthy and vigorous thoughts. That is the biggest piece in the rehabilitation process. I feel great knowing these articles may help your friends and others who need this kind of information. Feel free to keep in touch any moment you want. It will be a pleasure to me.

  4. I haven’t had much reinforcement or facts to bring my statements on mental disorders – I came to a third world country and ive seen this typical stuations to every people who are less and deprived and the malignancy of poverty are rampant everywhere … mental disorder is the fight for the strong and the weak, I cannot attest what lies behind its mysteries, but just by Reading this Article it already gives me a sufficient information how Mental Disorder really a pathetic disease is … kudos! to the person who writes to this content …

    1. Hey, Arlene!

      Many thanks for your comments. The bipolar disorder must be treated as a mental disturbance. To be diagnosed with bipolar disorder, people must have experienced at least one episode of mania or hypomania, and most of the time, patients in manic states are unaware of the negative consequences of their actions. Bipolar disorder is considered to be a large health problem worldwide, due to the increased rates of disability, including many times misdiagnosis, causing a delay in appropriate treatment and contributing to poorer prognoses because it differs significantly from clinical depression, although the symptoms for the depressive phase of the illness are similar. In some cases, the lows of bipolar depression are often so debilitating that affected people may be unable to get out of bed. Being the bipolar disorder a mental illness, the healing process resides in mind, and sick people have to learn how to react to the correct use of their thoughts, avoiding depressing and unhealthy feelings. The medication needs to act in compliance with the patients’ willpower and their thoughts strengthening, in a way that limiting beliefs may be suppressed and wholesome ideas activate the healing process in mind.

  5. Hello Karl, I am glade that i visited your your website! I do have close relatives of mine who suffer from bipolar disorder. But i am from a culture where people might see those type of illness as demonic possession. You know, this is due to lack of education on the issue. But thank you for this post! I really enjoyed it. Also, do you think there is a difference between bipolar disorder and schizophrenia?

    1. Hey, James!

      Thanks for your comments.In fact, there is a significant quantity of information involving bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, being both mental disturbances that hurt the physical body but it’s impossible to discard the ascendancy of the soul over the body because all of us have a soul indeed. When the body is sick, too much before ever the soul was suffering disturbances, many of them due to the incoming of external insights, such as evil thoughts. It usually happens to be people’s thoughts some like receivers and transmitters of whats going around. We all are the product of the ambiance, and our thoughts act helping ourselves or not Among other soul’s qualities the power of thinking is one of the most important. Thoughts and feelings are energy vibration, the manifestation of intelligence, spiritual power. Through our thoughts, we induce to our physical body the health or maladies. Thinking means reasoning, creating images, conceiving ideas, building for the present and the future. Through thought and thus the power of thinking, the man makes decisions, creates solutions, discovers and resolves life’s problems. Like sound and light, thought travels all over in vibratory waves which are recorded in the infinite ocean of matter filling the Universe. The body’s status reflects what’s going within. The power of thought is the key to everything. A thought remains connected to its source as long as the feeling that generated it persists. Thoughts set up real environmental climates which promote good health or disease, joy or sorrow, success or failure, well or ill-being.
      Related to the differences between bipolar disorders and schizophrenia, I have to say that both are very similar, but bipolar disorders cause substantial shifts in energy, mood, and activity levels. A person with bipolar disorder will switch between extreme excitement, or mania, and depression, experiencing in some cases hallucinations and delusions. Schizophrenia presents more severe symptoms from those found in bipolar disorder through hallucinations and delusions. People with schizophrenia may also experience disorganized thinking in which they are unable to care for themselves.

  6. Thanks for this article. It is highly informative and is a topic everyone should no more about! I have history of bipolar in my family and I myself suffer from depression. I also have epilepsy and due to the medication I take for it, it interferes with my mood. I go up and down sometimes but not to the same extent as individuals with bipolar disorder do.

    I will be checking up on this website for sure! It will be a great source of info for me and no mistake.

    1. Dear Darcy,

      Many thanks for your constructive feedback. Nowadays the world is crossing a great crisis moment. With this picture, people are involved with a crescent number of mental disturbances. It happens most time because people unknow how to manage the healing process that they all have within. The best way to have a healthy and wholesome life is to control and watch our thoughts, once that these even thoughts are our communication channel with the Universe, as a whole. The power of thinking is the key to everything. Thoughts remain connected to its source as long as the feeling that generated it persists, setting up real environmental climates which promote good health or disease, joy or sorrow, success or failure, well or ill-being. We all are the outcome of our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and choices. The power of thinking associated with determination is essential for right making decisions. The thoughts of fear and indecision usually lead to failure. Reasonably optimistic thinking should always prevail. Combined with action, it is a force capable of overcoming the most serious stumbling blocks. Thoughts of virtue, courage, and determination attract vibrations of other thoughts of identical formation, thus creating an environment of confidence capable of leading to success. That is the reason the power of thinking for the common good, should be cultivated and developed by everybody. Mental disorders are perhaps the most distressing woes of humanity. At first sight, many people are considered mentally healthy, yet they suffer from some disturbance. Its greatest danger lies precisely in the fact that its least shocking aspects go unperceived by those who are unaware of soul truths.
      Thinking means reasoning, creating images, conceiving ideas, building for the present and the future. Through thought and thus the power of thinking, the man makes decisions, creates solutions, discovers and resolves life’s problems. Like sound and light, Thought travels all over in vibratory waves which are recorded in the infinite ocean of matter filling the Universe.
      It is essential that families in their homes may manage their thoughts becoming them healthy and elevated, being this the best way to get the healing process, protecting their more loved ones, putting people aside from any disturbance physical or mental.
      I got happy knowing that this website may be useful for you. Feel free to keep in touch at any moment you desire. I wish you and your family all the Best,

  7. I have been diagnosed with bipolar but feel that this was incorrect since I have no manic episodes. I do however, have depression which is mostly due to the fact that my mood is constantly changing. I do have epilepsy and my medicines effect my mood chances greatly.
    I have bookmarked your website for further studies. I look forward to reading more informative information about this subject matter.

    1. Dear Elaine,

      I feel great knowing you regarded my website for your questions. Usually bipolar and depression are nearly together. It is essential in both cases, to learn how to develop the healing process through healthy and wholesome thoughts because these disturbances are mental disorders and as such, the primary agent capable of acting in the cure is the correct way of thinking. Thoughts are energetic vibrations, manifestations of intelligence, soul power and they set up real environmental climates which promote good health or disease, joy or sorrow, success or failure, well or ill-being. The healing power is within us, and we need to know how to awaken this inner force to get rid of such illnesses. To the family and friend’s support is given the highest value for the patient’s treatment. Be confident in yourself and believe in your resilient and inner power. Just you may act upon it. Do it now! It will become you stronger! Feel free to keep in touch always you desire.
      Wishing you the Best,

  8. Hello Karl,
    I believe your article holds some false hope to people who suffer from the DISEASE of Bipolar. It is not a 2nd tier mental disorder. Disorders can be an additional diagnosis, but a disease is something we cannot necessarily control by just having will. It is like saying that someone with HIV can heal themselves without help. Like heart failure being cured by a mindset. What this article actual does promote is stigma. Again someone who is unaccredited in the psychiatric medical field making outrageous claims could inadvertently hurt/kill someone. 17% of bipolar patients will commit suicide and most of those in which have blacked out without any control when the act is performed. The whole illness is the brains inability to cope with their disease with thoughts alone. Our souls are technically in an elaborate avatar where we are simply at the controls and cant necessarily prevent disease from our vessel, does not mean we aren’t spiritual enough. And to be sufferer myself I can attest that I have full faith, but yet I suffer physically with pain from my illness, without being detached from God. I also must state that it is a tier one psychological diagnosis for disease, if it were a disorder or lower tier such as a personality trait or disorder, these are medically impossible to cure. That being said, they mirror many symptoms associated with both tiers of the patients ailment. To encouraged others to a degree of possible harm, like they can heal them selves on their way of thinking or spiritual closeness to our inner spirit could create more depression of failure, and suicide resulting stigma. This stigmatic statement in saying such, leads to our maintenance in our own recover walk to back peddle. It is a better approach suggesting alternative solutions. We would not simply cure heart disease with just a thought, we can treat though. To heal it would take an action from a well functioning organ to change chemically on its own to function naturally. Our organ is not working properly and physically damages us with pain and damaging episodes that can come from no prediction of thoughts that can make one suicidal, and failing to accomplish your own self healing with false pretense, could push the disease to
    a person provoking actual suicide. I would have taken an herbal or diet approach if anything, to the thought process is In fact diseased WITHOUT CONTROL AT TIMES. Being spiritual cannot heal it from our thoughts unless God performs a miracle which would have to start with faith and asking/praying to Him. And the scripture clearly states that nothing can separate us(who believe) from the Love of the Lord. Period. Saying we are detached spiritual from him also can be discouraging for a patient who is suffering severally from the disease from his doubts in spirituality since he hasn’t become sane or normal so to speak. Also creating self doubt. I would love to be encouraging but unfortunately stigma comes in many forms sometimes we are unaware of.

    1. Hello, Sara!

      I understand and deeply respect your point of view. During our life, we all suffer many kinds of ailments related to the body, mind, and soul. I don’t mean that severe conditions like a heart disease or HIV should be treated just with thoughts or prayers. This is not the point! No one can deny the significant achievements of medical science, providing a better life to people, helping them alleviate their sufferings. What we mean is: people should pay more attention to what is going on inside of them. People often forget that they are not just material beings; that they have minds and souls which make them be what they are. Because of their feelings, gifts, and ideas, people are not just the result of matter alone. The material being is the physical body, just like all the things we see and touch. The mind and soul are those imponderable attributes that turn inanimate matter into life. Since all of us have this great power within why not learn how to use it to improve our lives and how to apply this knowledge to make ourselves better?
      No one can deny the abiding evolution of technology and science, and these are the right paths must be followed for the Humankind. Through this principle, it is supposed people should be more attentive to what is going in and out them. It is known that people are the outcome of their thoughts, choices, beliefs, and actions. In the Universe, nothing happens by chance. Thoughts consist of energetic vibrations, being them the manifestation of Universal Intelligence, through the soul and mind power.
      People cannot deliberately want to neglect these great truths. The medical science and the friend and family support may immensely help patients to recover their health. Researchers are finding that mental disturbances are caused by a complex interaction of genetic, biological, psychological, and social factors. But many questions still need answers. Being optimistic, believing in themselves, receiving medical treatment, applying wholesome thoughts – these may be factors capable of accelerating the healing process. For those struggling with mental disorders spurred by pressures or dysfunctions in the family, this readjustment is exacerbated. For some, home is a loving and safe environment.
      Usually strong beliefs cannot be easily changed. It does not mean that people are deemed to live immersed in illnesses. It’s possible to get better and healthier lives. It’s not a false hope nor a stigma!
      Wish you the Best,

      1. you again are completely a perfect example of accusations of a person who more ill by such such claims. Do you suffer a mental illness? it is Not a “disorder” the universe is not the Savior/God, and frankly i think it wrong on so many levels to minimize us and to tell us aren’t paying attention to the inside of our bodies. Really? Are you Bipolar? Is your parents? i surely doubt it. i live a positive life, doesn’t mean the “universe” is going to heal me. is this a new age site promoting stigma, demonization,, and untruths? F*ck ya it is! you disgust me with your narrow mind and insults. You should go back to la la land where the devil reigns, since you lack honesty, integrity, and Faith, not only denying our Lord and Bipolars EVERYWHERE IN EVERY WALK OF LIFE and oblivious your ignorance. No peer to peer support, just pointing fingers. Society really plays a roll of blowing smoke over everyone’s eyes including yourself. Again i ask: Do you have any professional credentials? do you have any bipolar family members or suffer yourself? you are clueless and i am very offended that you make such outrageous stigmatic claims. please refrain from taking anymore damaging articles, creating triggers.

        1. Hi, Sara!

          Again, I have to say that I’m not accusing ill people or not through the content I have been published on my website. Hope you may forgive me if at any moment I insult you with my website content. The idea presented in those articles is that we can together turn our lives better for all of us, not worse. The best way to make things better is at first changing ourselves within. These transformations need to begin inside us before going to the outside. That is the right way to become this world a better place for living. I wish you all the Best,

  10. Your recommendations are excellent. I have teenage children and sometimes inexperience leads us to put pressure on them in the wrong way, causing damage to their self-esteem; knowing the consequences of helping to hurt our children’s souls helps us to work with our patience and tolerance. Thank you.

      I am incredibly grateful for your kind insight. I feel sorry for your friend. Just like many other mental diseases, bipolar disorder has been in a crescent way worldwide.
