Life can be challenging - I was a carpenter on the way to work as a commercial pilot when a car accident destroyed my plans and my health in summer 1999. This accident left me with a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for many years until I got the chance to get my life back when I found a way to heal my trauma. Still, something didn't feel right and a couple of weeks before Valentine's Day 2016, I learned that I have a disorder. A brain disorder, the bipolar disorder. It's a genetic vulnerability that can get activated by the events of life. The moment I realized almost all my problems were symptoms of a disorder, I felt such a relief. So many things were clear in retrospect. Not really knowing anything about bipolar disorder I started to research on internet. Most information is about how to get medicated and how to live with the side effects of the drugs. For personal reasons I don't plan on taking psychotropic drugs, if there might be a natural way to heal. Please consult your doctor before you change your medication. After days of search, I found a blog, someone writing about how he has healed his bipolar disorder, living now stable for years. To my surprise he wasn't selling any kind of drug or food supplement. No, he said he basically only did one thing, he stopped to eat sugar and to drink coffee, and alcohol, as it is sugar too. Further research proved the connection of sugar, insulin and the brain. The moment I realized, the impact of sugar on my brain, I made a decision; "I want to drop the sugar, for the health of the brain. - "Now I know: It's worth it!" Changing my diet has changed my life, I feel progressively and constantly better and much more stable then I felt for a long time. Feeling better on mental, emotional and physical levels gave me a huge relief in many ways. Not only had my mind quieted down and the brain fog almost disappeared, I usually sleep now all night, waking up with recharged batteries. How wonderful to leave insomnia behind. A good sleep is worth so much while not enough sleep can be the hell of a life. Are you surprised by this way to heal the brain? I am still, and I hope reading this book inspires you. HOW TO HEAL THE BRAIN WITHOUT PSYCHOTROPIC MEDICATION, a book about my life and how it is possible to live happy with Bipolar 2 and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Do you just look for a solution to your problem of constant fatigue and headache? - Feel free to jump to the chapter "SUGAR - THE DRUG THAT NEARLY KILLED ME." "BIPOLAR BEARS" puts sugar into context with bipolar disorder and other brain disorders.
