>> Ray, I came across "TrueHope" about 2 years or so ago. At the time, they were calling their supplement something else and It seems of the ingredients have changed since then, though I couldn't be sure.

The balance is the same, but it is now finer ground (more concentrated) so you take fewer pills.

>I almost decided to try it at the time, but cost and the number of pills per day were prohibitive. I'm wondering how many pills a day you take. It was 30 at the time.

I went down to 4, 3xday after they changed it. I had a bad time from Jan to March, and felt like I was overloaded, so I quit completely, and every time I felt whatever extreme coming back, I would take a bunch at once. I haven't had to do that for a couple of months. Right now, 2 EMPower a day, 1 calcium, 1 salmon oil, 15 drops Strauss garlic drops (no mosquitoes come near me) I try to listen to my "moods". I think they won't lead me astray, and right now I'm in the mood to do it that way. (but don't follow me)

It's not just bipolar disorder, it's life style, it's support, it's nutrition, rest, exercise, understanding. It's family. It's triggers and crashes. If I'm under too much pressure for too long a time, I know I will crash. I rest even when I don't think I need it. Bipolar mania does that to you. Make hay while the sun shines? Good idea, but the mania sun shines around the clock for several days in a row.

> Have you had good success with TrueHope and your bipolar?

It's hard to define normal as success. I sort of slipped into it, and it was my family that noticed. "Mom's doing better" they would say. ANd I'd have to stop and remember that I hadn't been behaving as strange perhaps. Strange to them, normal to me. In Bipolar, it all feels normal at the time, and that's why it is so hard to tell when you gently slip into the reality normal. Oh, i'm not explaining this well at all.

> guess you have if you are passing it on as a gift from God :)

Faith borard, remember?

>>Have your cycles stopped or changed?

I still have my cycles but they aren't as extreme. I love the outer limit arena of thought and creativity, and I can still get there at times if I manipulate myself into that territory.

>>Why do you feel the need for two different supplements?

Two different problems. Heart disease potential in my family, and my cholesterol is too high. Mood.


>>Are you peri-menopausal?

What? Who? Where? I honestly don't even know what that is. I had a complete Hysterectomy a few years ago and went right onto HRT. Dr. botched me up bad and I had a second surgery a month later. Those two surgeries might have been what brought on the bipolar disorder. I wouldn't recommend having a hysterectomy just to bypass menopause. It dulls your ability to work through things. (my experience only)

>>Sorry for the twenty questions, but I was soooo into TrueHope at the time, I just would like to know your experience.

I feel well enough, not perfect, I'd like to have more something, but I'm satisfied, and I was never before when I was on epival and topomax. I can like myself, and it's not just a false sense of security.

Thanks for your interest.

I wish the supplements were not so costly. It's clearly a pity that health care cannot recognize the pharmaceutical benefit of nutritional supplements such as these. But I suppose we all know the story there. The organizations that work the hardest for our benefit sometimes turn out to be our worst betrayers, stealing all our money. Oh my, where did that come from? Disclaimer: my experience and my opinions only.

(Bob, don't move this to PB, they'll crucify it.)
