> BTW, I can produce at least four people who paid hundreds of dollars a month for a couple of bucks worth of vitamins and minerals to some group who claims to be doing this "non-profit". Also, none of these four people was seemingly helped by the medication, and although none came off of their regular medication, one still had a manic episode.


I knew someone (my brother-in-law's father) who is confirmed Bipolar I (now!) who put his family through all sorts of misery (being undiagnosed/untreated). Well, his wife believed in astrology and thought he just had personality changes and paid astrologer's to attempt to forecast when he would "switch". (I am recalling all of this when I was a teenager). They started to get some clues that it was maybe a "mood" problem brought on by a nutritional deficit of sorts. They sought out a nutritional specialist and paid him a LOT of money to come to the conclusion that he needed "nutritional lithium"! Well, there was just a tiny amount of lithium in the tablets he was taking and needless to say, he continued to "switch personalities". I told them about 20 years ago he needed to see a shrink. They finally saw one about 15 years ago (when he lied to get loans and they almost got busted by the feds and went bankrupt)-they put him on 900mg/day of lithium and his personality "switches" magically disappeared. The doctor asked him if he wanted to reduce the lithium afer he had been on it for several months and he didn't want to! HMMMM.
