Answer by Rebecca
Unfortunately there are no natural ways to control Bipolar Disorder. It is a chemical imbalance in the brain that requires medication to control…… There is nothing wrong with taking medication for it… there are lots of disorders that require medication like diabetes…. would you suggest that a diabetic try to control it naturally? No you wouldn;t…. so why expect someone with Bipolar to control it naturally. It can’t be done.
