Thank you, this is very well written and compelling for enrollment in the course.
I have a back ground in brain research for the condition of hypoglycemia, with documented EEG data.
I do believe that this physiological condition, often missed by physicians and mental health workers, can be mislabeled as Bipolar 2 or 3.
I like the idea of an integrative approach to Bipolar which is one of the most difficult mental health conditions to treat. I would particularly be interested in client involvement in their treatment plan and how to prevent inevitable mood changes.
Linda, I’m glad you found the post interesting and you have some excellent points!
