Hans Nieper MD prescribed orotates prior to 1980. Orotates are mineral salts of orotic acid used by plants &  animals to make DNA & RNA. 
Lithium asparate or orate http://www.newswithviews.com/Howenstine/james11.htm  5/5/2004 James Howenstine, MD. editorial
"Dr. Jonathan Wright suggests 20 to 30 mg. of lithium aspartate or lithium orotate daily as an appropriate dose to stop brain aging. This is 1/3 to 1/6 the dosage of lithium carbonate used to treat manic depressive disorder. Dr. Hans Nieper of Germany has learned that lithium orotate or lithium aspartate penetrate cells more effectively than lithium carbonate so smaller doses can be used. One tablespoon of flaxseed oil daily along with 400 I.U. of vitamin E ensures that NO (minimal) lithium toxicity can develop."
Lithium orotate "IS NOT the SAME as PRESCRIPTION LITHIUM SUCCINATE or SULPHATE (WHICH ARE DOSED MUCH HIGHER
and ARE TOXIC to the KIDNEYS and REQUIRE PHYSICIAN MONITORING)." http://www.arrowheadhealthworks.com/lithium.htm
Lithium Orotate - http://blogs.psychcentral.com/bipolar/2008/09/alternative-and-complementary-treatments-for-bipolar-disorder/ -
"If your doctor prescribed lithium as a mood stabilizer, you’re probably taking lithium carbonate (commonly sold as Carbolith, Cibalith-S, Duralith, Eskalith, Lithane, Lithizine, Lithobid, Lithonate, Lithotabs & Priadel). You can also find a supposedly safer form of lithium at your local health food store – lithium orotate. The theory behind the claim is that lithium orotate delivers lithium to the brain more efficiently than lithium carbonate, so you need to take less of it to get the same effect...
Under NO circumstances should you take lithium orotate if you are already taking a prescribed dose of lithium carbonate...
If blood levels are too high, the situation can become dangerous or even deadly."
 
Nutrition and Mental Illness - Sampling of the Current Scientific Literature part 2 by Gary Null and Martin Feldman MD suggest that lithium side effects are prevented with addition of B9 (folic acid), sodium, potassium, bromine, calcium, and trace minerals.  Addition of B6 (Take AM NOT PM to prevent nightmares.) and B12 may be valuable. www.thorne.com/townsend/nov/null.html

Omega-3 (especially in the form of ALA) -  www.mcmanweb.com/article-15.htm - www.biologicalunhappiness.com/askdoc/flax-oil.htm    
Good food sources are (organic) flaxseed, soybeans, canola oil, wheat germ, hemp seeds, walnuts.
1/2004 Current Psychiatry publication (volume 3, #1) explains that the Omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA and docosahexaenoic acid or DHA plus alpha-linolenic acid or ALA.  The omega-6 fatty acids are arachidonic acid AA and Linoleic acid LA.  They contribute to the serotonin neurotransmission, the inflammation system, and to reducing depression.  Adding to diet - 6 grams EPA and 3 grams DHA may contribute to longer remissions.

Omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA and EPA (can be) derived from the non-polar lipids of New Zealand’s green lipped mussel (perna canaliculus). http://omegaxl.com/omega-xl-faq.php - (This is from a clam, a shellfish touted to be contamination free.)
Omega 3 capsules - http://blogs.webmd.com/food-and-nutrition/2012/04/omega-3s.html - What to look for in an omega-3 capsule:
1. Quality: Make sure you have a high concentration of omega-3, not just fish oil (fish oil is where the harmful heavy metals are; we want less of that). Look for a supplement that has 1,000 mg of omega-3 per capsule, not just 1,000 mg fish oil.
2. Delivery: Make sure your omega supplement is Enteric Coated.
This will ensure it gets into the intestinal tract where it is absorbed and will help heal the gut.
3. Vitamin D: Make sure it has Vitamin D added. This will supercharge the omega supplement and help you heal inflammation faster.
(Caution, most vitamin D3 is synthetic and thus likely to be RAT POISON.)
4. Purity: Make sure it is independently certified for purity.
The IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards) are the most stringent in the world.

[Fermented oil may be superior to conventional oil, regarding nutrition. 
However one needs to always refrigerate any opened oil. 
Green Pasture has a good track record when it comes to fermented oils.

A 3-part series chronicling a young man’s struggle with the mental illness (bipolar) that took control of his life at age 17,
pressing him, his family, and the health care system to the limit. It is a tragically-too-common story; it is Michael Bourne’s story (of psychiatric problems that he now allows the public health system to medicate).

"Ms. Kidder also became known for a breakdown she had in 1996, when she was given a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. She talked openly about her condition thereafter, bristling at the words 'mental illness'.  'They are a stigma and recall times when it was thought those with a disorder were possessed by the devil,' she told The Edmonton Journal in 2008.  'I hope someone can come up with new words'.”
Kidder, Margot "had a debilitating car accident in 1990 that left her in a wheelchair for most of two years and made it difficult to work. She told ABC's Barbara Walters in a 1996 interview that she had struggled for decades with mental illness, a fight that became public when she was found dazed and filthy in a yard not far from the studio where she once played Lane. The Canadian-born Kidder had been living in Montana in recent decades and spent much of her time on political activism." http://www.legacy.com/ns/margot-kidder-obituary/189006419

Wright, Henry (Pleasant Valley, Georgia ministry) -  http://www.healthytomorrow.com/testimonies.htm - testimony of Ms. S.F. Alexandria  -
"In 1971 abortion was not yet 'legal,' so off to a dirty, secret place in an eastern city I went. The shame of that horrible decision is what I have come to understand was the open door for the enemy. It wasn't until only recently when I took the responsibility and stopped blaming others or using the crutch that I was mentally ill that my freedom began, Praise God. You see starting in 1975 in Alaska and ending in Minnesota in 1007 I had been in mental hospitals a total of 8 times. When I became coherent after my 1st stay, some of the staff told me they had never seen anyone as bad off as I was and they were certain I would be locked up in the back wards of a State Hospital the rest of my life. I have been off and on medications since 1975. But this time because by God's grace and love and the help of the teaching and ministry through Brother Henry, I believe the root(s) have been exposed. I took the godly counsel to taper off the meds with the oversight of my health care professional. 7,7/17/2001 she asked if I was ready to be off the depakote completely! I floated out of her office. Praise Jesus."

- THERESA: There was a woman that was painting and she painted just a simple piece of art that said the word "Help."
A woman who had stage-4 cancer, had 2 weeks left to live, she looked at that painting.  The supernatural power went through her body, the tumor oozed out of her ear, and she was completely healed. The next Sunday, Benny Johnson showed that picture out to the whole audience.  A man who was bi-polar looked at this painting, had been on medication for 13 years, was completely healed and now is a prophetic artist.  He has been healed for the last 4 or 5 years.
THERESA: I felt prompted that there were people out there that had some sort of trauma. I feel like it's a trauma that's affected your head and the things that you think about. I saw this angelic-like wing over your headI feel that God is bringing and releasing healingI think it has to do with headaches. It has to do with mind problems like bi-polar or situations where you feel like you can't cope with lifeEven people that deal with stress and they get pressure right here in their temples, I feel like when you look at this painting, that I was doing. God is going to release you.
I saw the word "freedom" and "healing" for you, so that is for you (who are listening/ watching/reading).

Chapter
6 gives good insight into the medical establishment's attempted theft of the soul/mind/emotions/personality /identity of patients, by it's divorcing the spiritual part of humanity and calling spiritual encounters lies/imaginations/ delusions/insanity.  The human is 3 parts - mind + body + spirit.  Spiritual encounters can be heavenly or demonic; nonetheless they are typically real and not imaginary.  Most tribes would verify this.  Modern medicine is violating it's oath to do NO harm.

Margot Kidder (superman's wife Lois Lane) bipolar symptoms were remediated through diet, herbs and supplements. (autobiography Calamities) Her testimony @ video above. 
Studies Reveal Depression Effects On Women And Creativity 7/10/2009 by
Douglas Eby @ http://talentdevelop.com#sthash.FcWu6PKj.dpuf
"Margot Kidder, renowned for her role as Lois Lane in 4 Superman movies, has been candid about her 'mood swings that could knock over a building.' She has said she's had to battle 'the demons' of mental illness throughout her adult life...
Just before her disappearance last spring, and an episode of living as a homeless person in downtown Los Angeles, she had been working on her memoirs, titled Calamities, for 10-12 hours a day. She said, 'It's very hard to convince a manic person that there is anything wrong with them.' She has since been getting treatment, including medication, and receiving a great deal of support from her family and the public, and has returned to work, both as a writer and actress. Dealing with depression and its causes may take tremendous strength and courage...
In her new book Remarkable Women - Perspectives on Female Talent Development, psychologist Kathleen Noble writes about the need for resilience 'to overcome the constraints that have thwarted the expression of female giftedness.' She continues: 'For gifted women who seek to overturn the psychosocial, religious, and historical forces that limit all women's potential as persons and citizens, resilience is essential, however arduous its achievement might be. Resilience is a tri-fold process of recognizing and resisting the intrinsic and extrinsic obstacles that inhibit the development of one's potential and taking responsibility for the evolution of our-selves/cultures/world.' The depression effects on women and creativity can be stifling. It is important to give women room to express themselves fully." -

Kidder, Margot - http://www.gmhcn.org/files/Wellness/ConventionalPsychiatryDidNotHelpMe.html 5/8/2006
"After 25 years of going to conventional psychiatrists, and every kind of therapy and drug you've ever heard of, I finally realized that (prescription) drugs were not the answer," said 57-year-old Kidder. "I actually found out why I had that chemical imbalance and went in and fixed it.  I've been using [the orthomolecular treatment of mainly omega 3 oil found in (organic) flaxseed, vitamin B complex, non-flush vitamin B3, and (wild) fish - taken with meals] for 10 years and I've not had an episode of manic-depression for 10 years." 
Kidder said she believes there's a big difference between orthomolecular medicine and psychiatric drug therapy, which treats the symptom.  “The orthomolecular approach examines what causes the symptom and tries to eliminate it,” she said.  “Listen, the drugs they give people with mental illness would make a well person sick," Kidder said.
[Thus many physical/mood issues can be remediated via minerals/vitamins/herbs/amino-acids (proteins such as 1 organic egg a day), but not the soul or spiritual root issues, which need our cooperation with both God + Jesus (holy people with skin on.
Lord, send the right angels and right people at the right time into each of our lives.  Be loosed into our lives.  Thanks Holy Trinity.]

Clouse, Mary Jo - Getting Free - Discovery of evil generational curses.
http://www.amazon.com/Getting-Free-Mary-Jo-Clouse/dp/0884197751
Mary Jo Clouse - 6 Keys to Unlock the Chains of Depression or http://tundemide.blogspot.com/2013/07/break-darkness-of-depression.html editorial - "When you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior you receive His cleansing blood, which contains His DNA. This DNA is 'the blueprint of your potential.' The blood of Jesus enables you to fulfill the destiny and purpose God has for your life.  However, in your natural blood line you have family iniquities, or 'bends in your nature,' that come from repeated sin patterns or learned behavior patterns in your own, or a relative's, life.
These bends can be toward good health or poor health, sound mind or depression.  Suppose you have an uncle who is always depressed around the holidays. If his pattern of behavior is not broken, it can become a family trait. Instead of rising above this family iniquity, you may develop a helpless attitude that leads to hopelessness and discouragement. You may begin to think you can never shake the "weakness" in your family.  Remember: The devil's job is to steal, kill and destroy. What better way to destroy someone than to assign an army of demons who are familiar with your blood line iniquities? This army of evil spirits is an assignment from Satan to destroy the plan and purpose God has for you...
I bought a book entitled Healing Through the Name of Jesus. I began to read it and to study and meditate on the Word of God. I continued to take Valium but gradually cut down on the dose. I came to believe Jesus was my answer. 
One Scripture passage in particular that I regularly meditated on is Psalm 103:1-6: (paraphrased) Bless You Lord, O my soul; all that is within me, bless Your holy name! Bless You Lord, O my soul, and forget not all Your benefits: You forgive all our iniquities,  heal all our diseases, redeem our life from destruction, crown us with loving kindness and tender mercies, satisfy our mouth with good things, so that our youth is renewed like the eagle's. You Lord execute righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed
This passage gave me great encouragement because I realized that, though I was oppressed by the devil, the Lord was going to "execute justice" (v. 6) against my enemy. As I persisted in studying the Word, I developed an increased desire to be free from both the iniquity of depression and my dependency on drugs. I began to trust God to heal me.  One revelation that helped me along the road to recovery was that my soul (or my flesh) which consisted of my mind, will and emotions, was at enmity with God (Rom. 8:7). In order for me to be completely whole, my soul had to come in line with God's will for me. Otherwise, I was fighting a losing battle: My mind was telling me I needed the Valium.  My emotions were trying to convince me that without drugs I couldn't function. My will was at the mercy of my mind and emotions...
The only way to stop this vicious cycle was to:
1.Renew my mind through the Word. As I did this, the mood swings became less frequent, and when they did come they were not as intense or long-lasting. Also, my faith for healing increased.
2.Make Jesus Lord over my emotions. I began to encourage myself by quoting God's Word so that what I felt became subject to what I knew to be true. God's Word said that God would redeem my life from destruction. I believed it.
3.Set my will to come in line with God's will. God did not want me to be oppressed or to be dependent on drugs; He wanted me to be free from iniquity, healed of all disease and renewed like the eagle! I realized that if He was big enough to save me from sin, He was powerful enough to deliver me from iniquity. I determined to receive all He had for me...
Deliverance in my case was a process of growing spiritually, but one day I knew I was free. I flushed all my tranquilizers down the toilet. Since that day 27 years ago, I have not taken a single dose of any mood-altering drug...
Forgive everyone who has ever hurt or disappointed you.
Otherwise, you will develop bitter roots that not only fill you with wrong thoughts but also affect your physical well-being. The Bible tells us that bitterness dries the bones-and this is where the blood is produced. Bitter roots bear bitter fruits...Thank Him for your freedom, even before it is manifest...Read a companion devotional regarding Depression...

Microsoft Word - Sid Roth 1077 Maiden.docx Transcript – Edited Excerpt -
Depression + Bipolar + Standing in gap for kid +
MICHAEL: . I became seriously manically & suicidally depressed. I knew I was depressed because I was finishing my PhD in psychology, so we talking about the timing of the Lord. I was 37 & thought my life was over, but Jesus healed me.
MICHAEL: My oldest son started self-medicating. He was just a young man, 12-13, & we were homeless. Many negative things happened.  He started just trying to take care of his pain.
MICHAEL: We had a beautiful home we lost.  Every possible, negative thing (happened) from death threats to the whole town talking about us. The Lord told me if I would forgive the people that had hurt me, He would make me forget the pain they caused me. So I made a list. I forgave the people.  After about 7 weeks of praying for people, the Lord visited me. It's amazing. Not only took away the pain, He gave me love for the people that broke my heart.
My son, the moment he could, moved out of our house (to) the streets.  Drug dealers were trying to kill him.  Police (were) trying to arrest him. I just would lay on his bed that he grew up in and just prayed, "God, tonight, don't let my son die." The Lord spoke to me & said He wanted me to change the way that I talked about my son. The Lord reminded me of all the prophetic words over the years He'd given me about my son's life. I told my wife & we started saying (prophesying/declaring over/about/that) our son is a history maker & world shaker, man of God. He's going to be a godly husband & father.
MICHAEL: The Lord had spoken to me so strongly that if I would change my vocabulary, the outcome would be changed. So I just started repeating God's Word. Like Paul told Timothy, "Do warfare by the prophetic words you've received." I started speaking over his life that he would be everything God said he would be. Within 7 weeks of doing that, God visited my son & delivered him from drugs. He moved back home, became a missionary to Haiti with the Bible school, married a wonderful woman, became our church executive pastor, has 4 great kids & is a successful businessman. So everything God told me came to pass when I started saying what God said to me about him.

Ramirez, John - http://search.stillsmallvoicetriage.org/cache/mes585_en-US.pdf - Ex Satan Worshipper Testimony - (edited) "We had a book in New York City, in American. I was the 3rd person to get this book that had symbols in the book of different demons, different principalities, of different ways of killing people with the witchcraft. You couldn't have a copy of this book unless the devil signed off on you. I would take symbols in that book and do witchcraft TO people. I put witchcraft on people, make people get diseases out of nowhere. I make people get leprosy. I make people get cancer. I gave people miscarriages, I gave people abortions. I put people in hospitals for surgeries, that didn't even have to go for surgeries. I did witchcraft so people would lose their minds. I (put) spirits of: bi-polar, schizophrenia, disease, suicide on people. I'd be up all night long, praying and talking to the devil, when Christians can't even go to church for one hour. When Christians can't even pray for one hour.  (Thus we &/or our ancestors could be a victim of witchcraft/occultism/ satanism, but Father God through Jesus Christ His Son and Holy Spirit resurrection power, is superior to all evil.  Once enlightened, we can repent for any (known & unknown) sin/legal grounds for a curse to stick and then to commission & enlist our heavenly army host to reverse all harm, plunder hell, and repay us & our bloodline with 7-fold blessings.  We can also enlist the Trinity to infill, mentor and defend us & our family tree, forever.)

Sandford, John L & Paula - God's Power to Change - Healing the Wounded Spirit @ The Transformation Series - Chapter 4 Depression - www.elijahhouse.org - This (2007) chapter is extremely profound, but (in our opinion) only regarding those
who are incapacitated, mentally ill, psychotic, catatonic, rather than for sad or gloomy individuals.  Basically what this chapter discusses is what is also showcased in Ana Mendez-Ferrell's (2009) book Regions of Captivity www.votlm.org When an individual is "spiritually stuck in a pit of hell" then he may need the assistance of BOTH heavenly host and intercessors standing in the gap.  Important textbook or resource for those in ministry.  Book may be a resource for those whose all other recourses have failed, including psychiatrists and deliverance.  Author defers bipolar "chemical imbalances" to the medical profession, especially regarding one's not being allowed to administer alternative or spiritual medicine, without a license to do so.  Nonetheless, be reminded that man is 3 parts: soul (mind/will/emotions), body, and spirit). 
MD's treat one's imagination with drugs, whereas pastors minister to one's spirit. 
Thus invite the Holy spirit to highlight any Sandford book/chapter areas relevant to you personally/professionally.

A black cloud was over his head. No one was able to help him, including a loving wife and 3 beautiful children! It took one touch of God's Glory; now when he sings people are supernaturally set free and healed."

"John told CCM magazine about the pivotal song The Blessing, 'I lived 20 years of my life with depression and medication until God delivered and healed me 3 years ago.
This illness has run through my family for generations. 'As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is' (Proverbs 23:7). I was told that I had it. I believed it and it became real in my life. Jesus bore this curse along with every other at the cross. When I began to believe his reality, my reality changed. It's so important that we speak truth and blessing over
our spouses and children and everyone around us. The power to bless and curse is in the tongue. I figured it was time for that to be said in a song.'"
Waller, John - http://www.thelighthouseevents.com/johnwaller/bio.html - "A book John read by Aaron Fruh titled
The Forgotten Blessing: Ancient Words that Heal Generational Wounds
. - 'It talks about the Old Testament tradition of the father blessing his son and daughter,' he says. Waller feels passionately about sharing the message in The Blessing. He knows 1st hand the power of the spoken word. Members of his family battled depression and unwittingly spoke the affliction into John’s life as a young boy. Consequently, he battled the illness and was on medication for 20 years. 'For years I struggled with depression,' he relates. 'It was all in my family. It was a generational thing that was passed down and I believed I would always struggle with it. As I started learning about who I was in Christ, this did not add up. If I believed that I was a depressed person, then I probably always would be a depressed person.  If I believe that I’m a joyful person. I’ve declared it and realized that is who I am, then that’s going to manifest itself in my physical body.'  With a strong circle of friends lifting him up in prayer, Waller was able to break the bonds of depression. He no longer found himself reliant on the medication that had become part of his life."

Jesse Penn-Lewis with Evan Roberts - http://hissheep.org/deliverance/war_on_the_saints.html -
THE DUAL PERSONALITY OF DEMON POSSESSION (demonization/oppression) -
"The dual personality of fully developed demon possession is generally only recognized when it takes the form of objectionable manifestations; such as when a distinct other-intelligence obscures the personality of the possessed one, and speaks through the vocal organs, in a distinctly separate or altered voice, expressing thoughts or words unintended, or only partially volitioned by the subject; the victim is compelled to act in ways contrary to his natural character, and the body is manipulated by a foreign power, and nerves and muscles are twisted in contortions, and convulsions, such as are described in the Scripture records (Luke 9: 39). A characteristic of the dual-personality of demon-possession also is that the manifestations are usually periodical, and the victim is comparatively natural, and normal, between what are described as 'attacks,' but which are really periods of manifestations of the intruding power"...
DUAL PERSONALITY OF EVIL SPIRIT POSSESSION IN CHRISTIANS - "Evidences are now available, proving that this dual-personality of possession in its fullest degree, has taken place in believers who are not disobedient to light, or yielding to any known sin;note 5 but who have become possessed through deception in their abandonment to supernatural power, which they believed to be of God; such cases having all the symptoms and manifestations described in the gospel records. The demon answering questions in his own voice, and speaking words of blasphemy against God through the person, whilst he is, in spirit, in peace and fellowship with God; thus evidencing (1) the Holy Spirit to be in the spirit, and (2) the demon, or demons, in the body, using the tongue, and throwing the body about at their will.note 6
This same 'dual-personality,' under entirely different manifestations , is easily recognizable by any who have the 'discerning of spirits.' At times the environment of the subject is more favorable than others for the spirit manifestations, and then they can be detected in both beautiful and objectionable forms.
The fact of the demon possession of Christians destroys the theory that only people in 'heathen countries,' or persons deep in sin, can be 'possessed' by evil spirits. This unexamined, unproved theory in the minds of believers, serves the devil well as a cover for his workings to gain possession of the minds and bodies, of Christians in the present time. But the veil is being stripped off the eyes of the children of God by the hard path of experience; and the knowledge is dawning upon the awakened section of the Church that a believer baptized in the Holy Ghost, and indwelt by God in the inner shrine of the spirit can be deceived into admitting evil spirits into his being; and be possessed,note 7 in varying degrees, by demons, even whilst in the centre he is a sanctuary of the Spirit of God; God working in, and through his spirit, and the evil spirits in, or through, mind, or body, or both."

Prayer

 
Gold, Michelle - http://d3tnb2mam8l2qt.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/IS781Transcript_Gold_0.pdf

SID:
Okay. Now you were raised in a pretty abusive situation.
Your mom was bipolar, a lot of fighting going on. You had verbal abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse.
MICHELLE: You know Sid, I grew up with a mother who was bipolar, manic-depressive. I'm not sure you've experienced that, but it's basically a swing of behaviors from extremely happy, joyful, fun, supportive to extremely sad or angry. In my case,  it was extremely traumatizing.  My mom would get so angry that she would actually wrestle me to the ground in anger. Later on, she explained that she would actually see red and couldn't even control this behavior. It was a completely chemical imbalance. She would then apologize and say, "I am so sorry. I love you, I love you, I love you." This was traumatizing for me.
SID: But at age 8 something amazing happened to you. Explain.
MICHELLE: I remember crying out in my little bedroom. I had this beautiful bedroom with a pretty canopy. I felt so safe there. I would pray, I cried out, "God, whoever you are, wherever you are, I just want to die." I can't believe an 8 year old would think that. I have a 6 year old. But it is just amazing they have the capacity to feel even that much pain. And I felt, I heard the voice of God in my heart at that very moment. It was so awesome. He said, "Michelle Gold, you cannot die. I have a plan and a purpose for your life. You're going to sing and write songs, and your songs are going to bring healing to the world." 
SID:
You know, Michelle's (bipolar) mother heard the truth and jumped at knowing the Messiah. This is eternal life that you might have experiential knowledge with the Messiah. You see, many church going Christians believe in the Messiah. But how many have experiential knowledge of the Messiah? Many Jewish people absolutely believe in God. But they've never had experiential knowledge. I know how you can have experiential knowledge. It starts by giving God access.  You say a prayer and believe it to the best of your ability. Would you say this prayer with me right now? Whether you're a Christian, whether you're Jewish, whether you're Muslim, repeat it after me. Dear God, say it right now. Say it out loud.
"Dear God, I'm a sinner against You and You alone have I sinned. And I'm so sorry.  I believe the Messiah (Jesus Christ Your Son) died for my sins, and by His blood, You remember my sins no more. And now that I am clean, I ask Jesus (by Your Holy Spirit) to come inside of me and take over my life. I make You Lord of my life. Amen."  If you said that and if you meant it, He's living inside of you right now.

SID:
"So the Kingdom of God came on Earth and the Kingdom of God is coming on Earth for you right now. Bill, would you pray? "
BILL: "Absolutely. Absolutely. I believe that the Lord is going to bring about encounters that bring transformation to lifestyles. That's what I want to pray for. I just ask, Father God that You leave the presence of power of the Holy Spirit in such an extraordinary way that people see and think differently because of seeing Your heartbeat, of discerning Your presence, of recognizing Your passion for people, that out of that would come transformation from the inside. And I believe that the Lord is healing people of dyslexia, of bipolar, various brain injuries. There are people that have been in accidents that have had, there is someone who is, has not been able to return to work because things are not clear, things are foggy in thought. You're not able to do logic, reason, process information. I believe the Lord is healing a number of people with that kind of situation...
I have a personal passion, a hatred for cancer. I believe that the Lord is releasing a miracle anointing to destroy that affliction in people's bodies. Specifically abdominal cancer is being dissolved in the whole digestive system. The Lord is bringing healing of cancer.  There's also cancer being healed in the bones. I think it's in the spine, in Jesus' mighty, mighty name. I also declare absolute healing to the brokenness that exists in people's hearts over sickness, that the Lord would restore confidence, confidence in your place as a son, as a daughter, that you, that people ignore, they're shooting themselves in the foot, but would be confident in a loving, perfect Father. I pray these things in the wonderful and mighty name of Jesus. Amen. Amen."

ECT @ https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/electroconvulsive-therapy-autistic-youth-dangerous/? - insightful - "

Dr. Peter Breggin, a Harvard-trained psychiatrist, explains that because ECT works by intentionally damaging the brain, its effects are comparable to a traumatic brain injury. After as few as 1-3 ECT sessions, the damage can not only provoke physical symptoms such as headaches & nausea, but can also permanently impair memory & concentration, & 'demolish' the sense of self. Breggin summarizes: 'After several routine ECTs, the damaged person becomes increasingly apathetic, indifferent, unable to feel genuine emotions, & even robotic. Memory loss & confusion worsen. This helpless individual becomes unable to voice distress or complaints, & becomes docile & manageable. ECT doctors mistakenly call this an improvement but it indicates severe & disabling brain injury...Breggin states that the targeting of vital regions of the brain has far-reaching implications:  'The electricity not only travels through the frontal lobes (the seat of intelligence & thoughtfulness and creativity & judgment) it also goes through the temporal lobes (seat of memory). You are damaging the very expression of the personality, the character, the individuality & even, if you believe in it, the expression of the soul.'”

Gamma Knife Radiosurgical Capsulotomy Effective for Refractory OCD By Brandon M.

Leej, Arthur - http://www.arthurleej.com/Violet.pdf - BENEFICIAL IONS - (another view of lithium) - "Ionic (electrical-magnetic) medication will never supplant oral application or injection, but can carry charged substances into the areas where they are needed. 
The electrically carried ions travel through the plasma of every cell through which the current passes. The current needs to be turned on and off gradually for the safety and comfort of the patient. If the face and head are treated, rapid current changes result in dizziness.  Positive ions travel to the negative pole and negative ions to the positive pole. Zinc, copper, and sodium are positively charged and repelled from the positive terminal. Negatively charged groups such as sulfuric, iodide, and salicyclate are repelled from the negative terminal and driven to the positive terminal...
The pain of gout is due to sodium urate crystals in the joints. Sir Alfred Garrod (1819–1907) showed that that the crystals could be dissolved by soaking them in a solution of lithium carbonate. Too much lithium in the body produces toxic symptoms. When lithium salts are taken by mouth, the stomach turns them into lithium chloride which doesn’t work well as a solvent of uric acid. (If on lithium consider using blood detoxifiers such as milk thistle for the liver.)
In 1890, Thomas Edison had a man put his right hand into a 2% solution of lithium salt and his left hand into a dilute solution of sodium chloride. The positive pole drove lithium into the body which showed up in the urine. He treated the hands of a gouty man with lithium salts. The swelling of his hand and fingers diminished & pain completely disappeared."
SHOCK TREATMENT - (Regardless of author's accolades, just say NO to ECT.  It is NEVER gentle.  NEVER.  Informed consent is also a LIE)...
"The 'annihilation' method results in severe amnesia reactions that have a good influence in obsessive states, psychogenic depression, and in some paranoid cases...
There was a curious study in 1945 by Boussinet and Jacob. After shock treatment, the blood plasma of shocked patients was injected into mental patients. Often there were remarkable changes in sleep & the general nutrition condition. The properties of shocked blood grow weaker and disappear in 2 months. They called the mysterious shock substance in the blood 'Acoagonine'...
In 1973, the California legislature banned the use of electroshock.
The law was struck down in the courts as an improper excursion into medicine. The famous book One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest has the story of the protagonist suffering both electroshock and lobotomy at the hands of his caretakers. L. Ron Hubbard unleashed a national attack on psychiatry and electroshock with the Church of Scientology.
Lithium, especially in high dosage, can be toxic.  Some considerations http://www.raysahelian.com/lithium.html
Lithium - Other considerations. http://www.arrowheadhealthworks.com/lithium.htm - "Different compound formulas of Lithium have many different effects on the brain, but the majority of harmful effects are due to the compound formula itself, & not to the actual Lithium. Lithium in the elemental form (naturally or in drinking water) has never been shown (tested) to have major side effects.
Lithium, when combined with germanium, greatly aids the electrical transfer within the brain itself. Lithium SHOULD be used in conjunction with magnesium. Magnesium aids in the electrical transfer that the Lithium causes to happen." (Lithium orotate is lithium bonded to vitamin B.13)
Lithium orotate "IS NOT THE SAME AS PRESCRIPTION LITHIUM SUCCINATE OR SULPHATE WHICH ARE DOSED MUCH HIGHER AND ARE TOXIC TO THE KIDNEYS & REQUIRE PHYSICIAN MONITORING."
 
Olanzapine and benztropine as a cause of ischemic colitis in a 27-year-old man. 2/27/2015 - "Ischemic colitis is a rare adverse effect of antipsychotic medications & is most commonly associated with the phenothiazine class of antipsychotics & atypical antipsychotics such as clozapine and olanzapine. The risk is further increased when antipsychotics are taken in conjunction with anti-cholinergics. A 27-year-old man with a history of bipolar disorder and depression presented to the emergency department with 6 days of constipation, abdominal pain, nausea, & nonbloody vomiting. He later developed multiple episodes of hematochezia and fever. Within the preceding 2 weeks, his medication regimen of divalproex sodium, aripiprazole, and trihexyphenidyl, had been changed to olanzapine, benztropine, & bupropion. The patient's physical examination showed diffuse abdominal tenderness, guarding, & distension & lab tests revealed a leukocytosis. A computed tomographic scan of the abdomen/pelvis showed colitis extending from the splenic flexure to the sigmoid colon, without evidence of perforation. A colon-oscopy revealed severe ischemic colitis involving the descending & sigmoid colon, which was confirmed on biopsy. Given the temporal association between the new medications & onset of symptoms, the patient's ischemic colitis was likely caused by olanzapine or the combination of olanzapine & benztropine, likely secondary to their anticholinergic properties. Thus, providers should take a thorough history & counsel patients regarding the risks of constipation when starting antipsychotic medications, particularly those with anticholinergic activity. Despite the fact that ischemic colitis is such a rare adverse effect of antipsychotic medications, it is important to consider because of its potentially fatal outcomes."
 
COMMENTARY:  For all practical purposes, the bottom line of much/most of psychiatric treatment is to muzzle/control/ manipulate the patient's speech/thoughts/behavior especially via stigma/shame/blame/overmedication/institutionalization to accommodate others, rather than steer the patient/client into the direction for which God created him/her. 
In fact, the only 101% cure, with no remission, is God, from which the patient is often deliberately corralled away from, due to bias/political correctness, etc.
Father God, in Jesus' name, may this deliberate deception/deceit be exposed/deposed/ reversed & replaced with Your NOW agenda/deliverance/healing/health/cure/truth. 
May Your accused/abused patients/victims now become today's heroes in this generation

We concur that in fact this is now true in the 3rd heaven. 
We pull it down into each patient's/victim's experiential reality,
1st with a revelation of Your love,
2nd of Your Son's blood atonement,
3rd of their empowerment via Holy Spirit's indwelling &
4th of heavenly host back up 24/7.

Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Bipolar Disorder (Revision) 2003 - http://focus.psychiatryonline.org/cgi/content/full/1/1/64#SEC1 - "As defined in DSM-IV-TR (1) and applied in this guideline, rapid cycling refers to the occurrence of 4 or more mood disturbances within a single year that meet criteria for a major depressive, mixed, manic, or hypo-manic episode. These episodes are demarcated either by partial or full remission for at least 2 months or a switch to an episode of opposite polarity (e.g., from a major depressive to a manic episode). The initial intervention in patients who experience rapid cycling is to identify & treat medical conditions, such as hypothyroidism or drug or alcohol use, that may contribute to cycling [I]. Certain medications, particularly antidepressants, may also contribute to cycling and should be tapered if possible [II]. The initial treatment for patients who experience rapid cycling should include lithium or valproate [I]; an alternative treatment is lamotrigine [I]. For many patients, combinations of medications are required [II]...
ECT is a potential treatment for patients experiencing mixed episodes or for patients experiencing severe mania during pregnancy [II]."

Hoffer, Dr. Abraham - ECT (Electrical convulsive therapy) -http://www.doctoryourself.com/hoffer_niacin.html   "In 1954 I observed how nicotinic acid (flushing vitamin B3) relieved a severe case of post ECT amnesia in 1 month. Since then I have routinely given it in conjunction with ECT to markedly decrease the memory disturbance that may occur during & after this treatment. I would never give any patient ECT (especially) without the concomitant use of nicotinic acid. B3 is very helpful, especially in cardiovascular-induced forms of dementia, as it reverses sludging of the red blood cell & permits proper oxygenation of the cells of the body. For further information see Niacin Therapy in Psychiatry. [8]...(Regarding memory:) In September 1992, Mr. C., 76 years-old, requested help with his memory. He was terribly absent-minded. If he decided to do something, by the time he arrived where he wanted to do it he had forgotten what it was he wanted to do. His short-term memory was very poor and his long-term memory was beginning to be affected.
I started him on a comprehensive vitamin program including (non-flushing vitamin B3) niacinamide 1.5 G daily. Within a month he began to improve. I added niacin to his program. By February 1993 he was normal. April 26, 1993, he told me he had been so well he had concluded he no longer needed any niacin & decreased the dose from 3.0 G to 1.5 G daily.
He remained on the rest of the program. Soon he noted that his short term memory was failing him again. I advised him to stay on the full dose the rest of his life." (Whether/when increasing or decreasing dosage, remember to titer it SLOWLY.)
