Patient discussion about psychotic symptom

Q. Hi, everybody. I was wondering how long you've been diagnosed with bipolar and if you had psychotic symptoms? I've been diagnosed for coming on a year this December. how did you handle the news, how do you feel about medication and how do you feel about finding a partner, or how has your partner handled the news? I was totally shocked, stigmatized and ashamed. I thought I did something wrong and God could just heal me. I was in denial. And I flushed my medication down the toilet but I went right back to the hospital. Never want to go there again. I've come to accept it as my thorn in my side and to see the positive aspects of it: more down to earth, better able to relate, more trusting in God, and better able to minister. What do you feel is positive about your illness?

A. Methinks all these brain disorders have everything to do with a lack of copper. With all our modern technology and artificial fertilizers and processing of foods, the food has become so depleted of minerals that our bodies and brains have become so depleted that we cannot even function properly. Start taking kelp, calcium magnesium, cod liver oil, flax seed oil, and raw apple cider vinegar. This will bring healing and normal function to the brain and body systems. The emotions will calm down and be more manageable. If you are taking a vitamin with more manganese than copper it will add to the dysfunction. Don't waste your money. There you are! Some solutions rather than more rhetoric about the problem.
