Bipolar
Disorder

At Buddhi Clinic we are able to bring together a unique skill set in managing Bipolar Disorder

Overview

People with bipolar disorder have mood swings, not the regular ups and downs of life that most of us experience, but more significant changes that impact on their occupational, social and family life, significantly. These changes in mood may cause them to behave in uncharacteristic ways, be unpredictable in their decision making and actions or indeed go through prolonged periods of dysfunctionality.

Occasional anxiety is an expected part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or before making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time.

Assessment

Signs

People with bipolar disorder experience periods of unusually intense emotion, changes in sleep patterns and activity levels, and uncharacteristic behaviors—often without recognizing their likely harmful or undesirable effects. These distinct periods are called “mood episodes.”

Diagnosis

Diagnosis

While the diagnosis is clinical, brain imaging, electrophysiology, blood tests to rule out reversible causes or indeed contributing factors and a thorough pre-rehabilitation assessment including evaluation for co-morbidities (associated conditions) will be required in all instances. At Buddhi Clinic our assessment includes standard outcome indicators for activities of daily life, quality of life, neuro-disability and mental health.

Treatment

We understand bipolar disorders rather uniquely. We go beyond the mind to explore brain factors that impact on mood; the human body and its contributions (hormonal, metabolic and inflammatory factors) and the role and contribution of the person’s environment.

Our integrative approach beyond medication that stabilises the brain and mind includes neuromodulation (rTMS & tDCS), individual and family psychotherapy and a range of holistic interventions, Ayurveda, Naturopathy & Yoga that help calm the mind and restore normal functioning.
