Cognitive behavioral therapy, also known as CBT, can be an incredibly beneficial alternative treatment for bipolar disorder. A talk therapist can assist you in discovering what triggers your bipolar symptoms, for example, high stress or lifestyle, and can help you to alter behavior and thoughts during the onset of manic or depressive episodes. CBT focuses on addressing distorted perceptions of the world and one’s self. There are two fundamental aspects of CBT. The cognitive part helps to change the depressing thoughts that contribute to bipolar episodes. The behavioral part works to change the client’s behavior during situations that are mood triggering.

We teach clients how to become
their own mental health care specialists.

Nutrition for Overcoming Bipolar Symptoms
In most cases, bipolar individuals find it to be beneficial to reduce or eliminate certain foods from their regimen. For bipolar people, excluding drugs and alcohol is crucial, since drugs and alcohol are depressants which may trigger mood swings. Sugar is also a possible mood swing trigger. Simple sugars like those found in desserts can make mood swings worse. Staying away from chocolate, soda, coffee and other caffeinated beverages or foods is beneficial. Caffeinated items can enhance mood and increase energy temporarily, but they can cause exhaustion later. Whole, healthy foods are essential for the body and brain to get the amount of nutrition and vitamins needed every day. Eating wholesome meals with vegetables, fruit, fish and poultry can help a bipolar person to overcome their symptoms.
