Alternative Medicine Options for Bipolar Depression

For any of us, the unexpected twists and turns of life can sometimes seem like a roller-coaster ride. However, for the 5.7 million men and women with bipolar disorder, the normal ups and downs of living can be far more challenging.

Many people are not aware that natural, holistic medicine approaches such as acupuncture, energy healing, and meditation training can dramatically improve the quality of life for people suffering with bipolar disorder. A skilled practitioner can use these and similar techniques to help patients discover and enjoy a lasting experience of calm and balance.

As human beings, our moods and mental states are constantly changing in response to a wide range of internal and external factors. Life circumstances, changes of the seasons, relationships, our internal conversations, the ways we interpret events, and even the weather outside can all affect our moods and mental states.

Acupuncture can help you learn to manage your mood, rather than having your mood manage you. Our holistic approach can help you to feel your best naturally, without pharmaceuticals. If you are currently under the care of a psychiatrist, we will provide treatments that do not interact with any medications that you may be taking.

Through an interactive learning process, we will help you develop a series of internal emotional skills. These skills are rooted in the practices of meditation and mindfulness. Our treatment sessions are intended to help you experience a deep level of inner peace. Your authentic confidence and charisma will be energized. Gradually, you will learn how to maintain this experience on your own.

A successful treatment outcome is much more than managing an illness. It is finding ways to live a full, healthy, exciting, enjoyable, and even extraordinary life. Our goal is to help you discover new realms of enjoyment, balance, and health in body, mind, and spirit.

If you are looking for an acupuncturist to treat a mental health condition, its important to select a practitioner who has experience in treating these conditions since it requires a different skill set compared to treatment of physical health concerns.

If you would like to schedule an appointment at our clinic, we would look forward to your visit. After listening carefully to the details of your situation, Dr. Windsor will design a treatment approach, as unique as you are, to gently and safely guide your body, mind, and spirit toward well-being.
"Acupuncture has the potential to effectively treat certain mental health concerns while reducing or eliminating the side-effects of medications. This is because traditional acupuncture theories provide a therapeutic perspective on the mind-body connection. Similar to psychotherapy, it is more effective when there is a good quality of communication between the patient and practitioner. There is a human element to this type of treatment. Although most people with bipolar disorder will need to stay on some type of treatment over time, the addition of acupuncture may enable the patient and psychiatrist to have more options and choices regarding the medications used."
