Bipolar disorder is a psychological disorder in which the patient experiences abnormalities and disturbances of the mood, severe mood swings and irritation so we can say here that again vata is the pimr dosha here and patient should try to normalize the vata dosha through medicinal herbs. In bipolar disorder, patient experiences episodes of serious mania and depression which can range from acute to chronic. Mood swings are also extreme in nature with the patient’s mood varying from aggressive and irritable to sadness and hopelessness, with periods of normalcy in between so one can see here that swings are from one extreme to other extreme and patient can be quite troublesome to manage at times.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice for Patients of Bipolar Disorder

  • - Fresh fruits, fruit juices, vegetables (raw or cooked or boiled), vegetable juices, sprouts, nuts, dry fruits, honey, milk, ghee, fresh butter, and buttermilk are the best to increase sattva and enrich the mind because all these are good anti oxidants and thus our behavior to think good and positive are increased with the intake of these very food substances. Try to cut down, or if possible stop, the use of black tea, coffee, white flour products, chocolates, white sugar products, deep fried foods, hot spices, meat, fish, and eggs because all these tend to vitiate the vayu dosha further and thus are not advised for intake. 

  • - Breathing exercises: Mind has a very close relation with breathing and it helps as well a lot. A person has short and shallow breathing when anxious or stressed and has deep breathing when relaxed and happy so always try to stay relaxed with calm breathing techniques. Next time you become stressed, watch your breathing and then Try to slow it down for best health benefits.
