Alternative meds for Bipolar/Tramatic Stress Syndrome

Posted by Veronica on 12/14/00 at 06:38 AM


I was trete4d for several years with depakote and Mellaril and an assorment of anti-depressants. My body broke down from them. I went to a holistic dr., fasted, detoxed and got off all meds. I find now that there is a need for some kind of support to maintain my center. I do seem to go into some kind of emotional cricic when Traumatic stress issues come up, Being a diabetic with an eating disorderwith many food addictions and a recovering drug and alcololic I find myself using very harmful foods to acheive a medicating effect.

I’ve decided to try meds again but I AM VERY CONCERNEd since my liver is only about 22% fuubctional.

I am considering KAVA KAVA for the imediate stress situations and SAMe to level the possilbe bipolar To help but Are there contraindications or is there something more nature and less stressful to my live and compromised state of healtH?
