I also really enjoy the recipes that came with the px90 nutrition plan, my husband is a chef and these recipes are very tasty and fulfilling. I am getting into great shape at my own pace with the encouragement and support of my own personal trainer that I used to pay $50.00 a session and also have my own personal nutritionist to go along with it with my own personal eating plan. I also purchased the recovery formula and the orange taste is great and has plenty of nutrients to assist me to recover from the workout. I absolutely love it and will send you before and after pics when i am done.
Hope this can help you.

Q. Over-medication” for bipolar patients. Does anyone have any information on “over-medication” for bipolar patients? About any societies that is overdependence on drugs or medicines to treat bipolar disorder?

A. pharmaceutical drugs can be of great help when the disease breaks out. but in the moment that the person is again under control, you should find out the causes and cure them one after another. psychosis, schizophrenia, paranoia break out, because your emotional body can't keep all traumata anymore under control. the last body - the physical body will react out of control because too many emotions have not been assimilated in time. kineology is here of great help to analyse and eliminate one cause after another. detoxication is another thing which must be considered. healthy food - biological food, source water (still water) - each case needs individual help.
