Bipolar disorder is a mental condition defined by dramatic mood swings. Emotions alternate between extremes of high and low, mania and depression. The manic phase exhibits elevated mood and high energy, which are followed by deep depression, often despair and suicidal tendencies. Opposing displays of emotions can last for days or even weeks while the patient cannot think clearly and is unable to cope with daily activities and life.
Most of us can relate to feeling anxious before speaking in front of a group or being depressed due to a stressful situation in our lives, but did you know that the food we eat can help decrease or increase anxiety and depression?
