Remote Healing of Bipolar Disorder, Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Fibromyalgia, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome Through Lifestyle Change.

Adv Mind Body Med. 2017 Fall;31(4):4-9

Abstract
This case report illustrates the relationship between gut, hormonal, and brain function in that dietary change, mindfulness interventions, and detoxification led to resolution of disabling psychiatric symptoms. In this case, a single Caucasian female resolved her symptoms of bipolar disorder (BD) including psychotic features and suicidality, posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms from childhood torture, disordered eating, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome through lifestyle interventions. This patient survived a severe trauma history only to develop alcohol dependence, disordered eating, and depressive symptoms, which were treated with a polypharmaceutical psychiatric approach. She was formally diagnosed with BD after being treated with antidepressants and went on to be treated with up to 15 medications in the ensuing years. Disabled by the side effects of her treatment, she worked with her treating psychiatrist to taper off of 4 medications before she learned of nutritional change through a book authored by the author. After completing 1 mo of these recommendations including dietary change, detox, and meditation, she enrolled in the author's online program and went on to resolve her symptoms, physical and psychiatric, to the extent that BD has been removed from her medical record. She has been symptom free for 1 y. This case is evidence of the potential for self-directed healing and resolution of chronic illness.
