Is There Any Way To Treat Bi-polar Disorder Without Medicine?

I was diagnosed as bi-polar about 5 years ago, and quit my meds about 2 years ago. The past month hallucinations have skyrocketed to nearly every day. (hear, see, and smell) Is there anything I can do do lessen this WITHOUT medication?

Counsiling and there are certain foods to avoid, also sunshine makes manic stages worse.  I have been dealing with Bipolar for 9 yrs and haven't taken any meds for the last 5 . A strong support group would be very helpful. Good Luck

Hi,Dear,
Thanks for query,
First mistake you did was quit the tab.by your own.
Now problem again started and you want to solve the problem without medicine,it is not possible.
Better you consult psychiatrist and start the treatment.
Delay of treatment will cause more harm.
Ok and bye.

It may be pretty difficult to manage manic state or severly depressed state without medicines. However you can meet a clinical psychologist and try cognitive behavior therapy (CBT).
