Advanced nutrient therapies for Bipolar Disorders

The International Bipolar Foundation is at it again with another timely webinar on cutting-edge research on the use of nutrient therapies for bipolar disorder, featuring Dr. William Walsh. 

Our present dependence on psychiatric drugs will gradually fade away as brain science advances.  Learn how brain-changing imbalances occur in bipolar disorder. Discover how these imbalances alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters, disrupt epigenetic regulation of synapse activity, and cripple the body's protection against environmental toxins. A description of advanced nutrient therapies will be discussed.

After earning his degrees from Notre Dame and the University of Michigan, Dr. Walsh received a doctorate degree in chemical engineering from Iowa State. While working at Argonne National Laboratory in the 1970s, he organized a prison volunteer program that led to studies researching the causes of violent behavior. Over the next 30 years, Dr. Walsh developed biochemical treatments for patients with behavioral disorders, ADHD, autism, depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease that are used by doctors throughout the world. As author of information-packed Nutrient Power(2012), Dr. Walsh hopes to reach as many consumers about the powerful impact of nutrients on brain processes and how identifying your own biotype and taking the right nutrients can correct biochemical imbalances and improve mental health.

    You can indeed find research that substantiates the biomedical treatments advanced by Dr Walsh and others. Addressing epigenetic issues with nutritional supplements (with doctor supervision) removed all bipolar symptoms in my daughter. Even Pubmed has research that supports his ideas on methylation and how nutrients affect neurotransmitter balance. It's science, not an unvalidated theory. I applaud IBF for looking beyond pharmaceuticals to help those who suffer.

    Why are you using this site to promote the scientifically unvalidated theories of biomedical treatments that have been diverting the energy and dollars of families with autism for years? I see NO evidence base for nutritional treatment effectiveness for BPD. What I looked for is a review like this one on behavioral treatments: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23927375
    Where is your editorial control on content such as this? Very disappointing.
