My brother-in-law is bi-polar or what ever they are calling it today, the health professionals have change his diagnosis 3-4times. I personally believe it is mercury poison. He has a mouthful of amalgam fillings. When he goes off his meds he starts talking strange and is fascinated with electronics and martial arts he also starts to dress strange jewelry and layers of clothing. It is a pattern for people diagnosed with bi-polar to go off their meds usually about 1.5 years or less. He is a great guy as long as he is on his meds, he would literally give you the shirt off his back. We are making him a appt. with our holistic dentist. Then we will start the detox however it is going to be little tricky because while he is still taking this crazy medication it will not allow his body to start rebuilding however if he goes off of it he just doesn't function. It is quite the paradox! At least removing the fillings is start in the right direction. He wasn't always this way until he was 18 away at college. He took care of himself exercised kept himself well groomed, now he is the complete opposite.
