Hi there <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
My oldest while not ever diagnosed was I'm quite sure bipolar. Her behavior was extreme and almost broke up our family. We had success working with a homeopath who specializes in kids with mental illness as well as Autism etc. Right before we started working with the homeopath things got so bad that I had to send her to live with my mom. The changes in her are remarkable.<br><br>
It's funny because I got the reccomendation for this homeopath from another mom online that I didn't even know but who had a child who was bipolar who healed with this homeopath. NOw here I am on that same info all over. I don't know what would have happened to my dd if we hadn't found him. Let me know if you want his contact info. He does telephone consults, so we've done all our consults by phone and have never actually met him. I'm working with him for the rest of my family now too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I think that if you aren't doing meds it's really important to do something natural especially if there is raging going on. (I'm sure you already know that) I just wish we had known of him when my dd was little. Could've saved us all alot of pain and heartache. Thank goodness we did tho!<br><br>

Well<br>
we ahve a realyl good psychiatrist. Who was nto gun ho about drugs at all. We tried various behavioral modifications, increase in exersises, meditation, changes in diest, sleep, fish oil etc etc etc. Nothing helped.<br>
We started him on Abilify and it tooka little while to fin the right dose but now it is all 90% better. My son take MEtformin as well to counteract possiable weight gian fomr Abilify and other metabolic changes.<br>
My biggest fear of medication was that it would make him like a zombie. He isvery gifted nad created. Well, medication actualy made him more creative and productive because insted of being in bed depressed and hating life or raging and breaking eveything he makes friends, does origamy, goes to martial art etc etc etc

Oh geez I feel silly now. Sorry, I misread your post. I thought you said you weren't doing meds. Silly me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
