The best way to understand bipolar disorder is to understand Alternate currents (AC) and Direct currents (DC). For non-technical people, AC is cyclic in nature which is being supplied in our homes. DC is a straight line current which is used in batteries in toys/mobile phones.
Emotions have motion and it is the language of spirit. It travels through the body and its purpose is to experience the emotion and allow it to get grounded. Flow of emotions in human body is a continuous process and it is based on our experiences. Each moment we live is an experience, thus bound to generate emotions. However, we are conditioned to suppress emotions and mind is trained not to pay attention to it.
Such emotions, which are denied expression get stored in the human body and make the body very stiff. Gradually, it becomes a store house of emotions like battery. When that is not sustainable, the body begins to discharge and charge on its own. This process gives very high amplitude of emotions for few days/week and then creating equally deep depressive emotions for next cycle of days/weeks.
Such peaks of high and low are so powerful that patient is not able to contain them and thus giving bipolar effect.
In our treatment, we work on balancing the male and female current which automatically regulates the flow of emotions. Like in Schizophrenia, after reversing the disorder, the real tough part is the rehabilitation program and more chronic the disorder is, longer it takes a patient to come back to new reality and accept it.
