Note: Do consult a specialist for proper diagnosis and treatment of this condition. Use home remedies just as an adjunct treatment.

Bipolar disorder, also called manic-depressive disorder, is a mental illness in which a person experiences frequent mood swings.

Within a short time period, a person can experience mood swings from extreme high to extreme low. The frequent mood swings can be awful for the person going through them along with those who live with him or her.


The exact cause of bipolar disorder is still not known. Some of the possible causes and risk factors for this mental disorder are a genetic predisposition, stress, hormonal imbalance, an imbalance in brain chemicals, physical changes in the brain, drug or alcohol abuse, and some traumatic experience.

home remedies for bipolar disorder

Once diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a person needs extensive and long-term treatment.

Generally medications are prescribed by doctors, but those who are interested in natural treatment, can also consider herbal remedies. Make sure to consult a qualified naturopath or medical herbalist for proper guidance.


Here are the top 10 home remedies for bipolar disorder.

1. Fish Oil

Being rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fish oil can help in the treatment of bipolar disorder. Its EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) content is essential for hormone production and nerve tissue health. Fish oil improves the functionality of brain and helps overcome depression.

So, take fish oil supplements. For proper dosage, consult your doctor. Also, you can regularly eat fatty fish such as albacore tuna, mackerel, salmon, herring and trout which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

2. Brahmi

Brahmi, also known as bacopa, is another useful herb for bipolar disorder because it works as a mild stimulant as well as sedative. It also helps enhance memory and relieves mental strain.

  • Drink a few teaspoons of juice extracted from brahmi leaves daily for several weeks. Another option is consume brahmi ghee prepared by frying brahmi leaves in clarified butter (ghee).
  • Alternatively, take this herb in supplement form. For proper dosage, consult your doctor.
  • An invigorating head massage with brahmi oil is also beneficial.

3. Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha works as a nervine tonic to improve the symptoms of bipolar disorder. A 2013 study by the University of Pittsburgh found that sensorial,  an ingredient in ashwagandha can improve 3 separate cognitive functions in those suffering from bipolar disorder as it can help with auditory-verbal working memory, reaction time and social cognition.

Take 500 mg standardized extract of Ashwagandha root and leaves daily for several weeks.

4. Valerian Root

Valerian root is known for its strong sedative properties which can help calm the nervous system. It is often used as an alternative medicine for anxiety, sleep problems and mood disorders.

Valerian promotes feelings of calmness and reduces nervous tension and stress along with anxiety, restlessness and mild to moderate mood changes.

This herb is easily available in the market in various forms such as dried valerian root, tea bags, capsules, and liquid extract.

5. Passion Flower

Passion flower has sedative properties that can reduce anxiety and excitability experienced during the manic episodes of bipolar disorder. It also helps treat insomnia.

Although this herb has no side effects, yet at times it may cause stomach upset. However, before taking this herb it is advisable to discuss with your doctor.

  1. Add 1 teaspoon of this herb to a cup of hot water.
  2. Let it steep for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Strain and drink this tea a few times a day.

6. Magnesium

Magnesium works in a way similar to lithium but with fewer health risks. It works as a mood balancer and reduces the symptoms of mania.

It also promotes good sleep. In fact, magnesium deficiency often leads to insomnia and anxiety. Magnesium levels are naturally depleted during periods of stress and hard work.

  • Take oral magnesium supplements.
  • You can also include magnesium-rich foods such as spinach, Swiss chard, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cashews, soybeans, and black beans in your diet.

  2. I would like to try some of these herbal remedies with my Husband. He refuses to take his bipolar meds. If I tell him what these herbal things are for he will refuse them as well. He was diagnosed as a teen and the military tested him as well. The military diagnosis was sever bipolar. More mania than the depression side. He wakes nice, then instantly starts screaming and throwing things as well as calling me names. They found he has ADD and PTSD as well. I can tell him these will help him sleep or improve his memory and he would take them. Some days are good and some are bad. It’s hard to handle sometimes and leaves me beside myself at times. His Mother is also bipolar but more depressed. Any suggestions?

  3. Won’t list the website where this is located because nobody wants another website on their site but…
    I have to tell people about this miracle cure for Bipolar.

    Four supplements:
    Morning: about 5 mg of nascent iodine (in glycerine)
    and 3 Vitamin A & D capsules (cod oil)
    Never take synthetic vitamins.
    A person is also supposed to eat a little liver every day.
    But I bought desiccated liver.
    Evening: 20 mg lithium orotate.
    That broke her mania attack in about 20 hours.
    All of these are well below the safety level.

    Take the iodine in the morning because it can prevent sleep.
    Iodine and the lithium orotate should not be taken together.
    They do not like each other.
    Iodine in the morning and lithium orotate in the evening.

    I got this from a German doctor that said this would cure 97% of all illnesses. Well….I believe it after the change in my daughter.
    The two times she did not take this combination,
    she had a bipolar attack.

    Her problems started at about 14 or 15 years old.
    It progressed. Did not realize it was bipolar.
    At age 18, she went into a psych ward.
    For one year, it was in and out, over and over.
    Prescription lithium gave her Parkinson-like tremors.
    She began to be dizzy and would fall on the floor.

    Psych doctor took her off all med to clear the body.
    Ended up in the psych ward again.
    When she came out, she was still nuts.
    Started the German doctor’s protocol.
    In 20 hours, she was a normal person.
    Not perfect, but acceptable, normal behavior.
    Over time, she improved.
    Began to smile, was able to leave the house, etc.

    This is our third month.
    This is the winning remedy for her.
    I took the same supplements so I would have a control reference.
    I had some itchy skin for awhile, but over time it stopped.
    We are still taking those four supplements and doing great.
    I liked this remedy because there is nothing that is dangerous.

  4. Love the article! Herbs have really helped my wife get her life back. I found it was hard to get good quality of herbs each time. I found a good company botanical products that really carry all the herbs you mention in your article and the quality is amazing. So many people don’t even think of natural only meds:( Keep up the good work!

  5. Hello you all ,
    I have/ suffer from bip.disorder after accidently being prescribed Prozac and after becoming rapid cycling ,and becoming suicidal ,then a psychiatrist prescribed Effexor ,i then became hypomanic , after a cardiac arrest , i stopped this medication , and became depressed (slowly like a bucket with a hole in it, running empty ) , now ,after everything i think i know what happens when taking those ¨¨”medicines¨¨”, it reduces bloodsugar , after 2 weeks or so (depending on the person, and age ) , it is reduced below ¨”optimum bloodsugar levell ¨¨ , and adrenalin kicks in (together with cortisol } , you become ¨¨very lively / or aggresive ,irritated , this is mistaken by your surroundings as being healed ,not depressed anymore……, and you become fatter and fatter , get sexual problems , and so on , now i am ¨¨ disregulated ¨¨ (mentally and physically ) , and have a disabillity pension , and will never take ¨¨regular medication ¨”again .
    When mentioning , to my cardiologist , that i had been on antidepressants for 2 years , i saw him being startled , and excammening my MRI scans , he said : thank god your heart valves are ok ….., so they know …….
    Now i ¨¨ doctor myself ¨¨ with herbals and am doing reasonably well , but will never recover completely …..

  6. ps,
    After reading the part concerning the “German doctor ¨¨ , i must say he is right , the cause of almost all disease is an imbalance of the automic nerve centre ( what the Chinese call Yin and Yang ) , between sympatic function ¨¨action being awake ¨¨ , and parasympatic function ¨¨ resting /restoring / sleeping , this system is in sympatic overdrive in the whole western world , and is caused by excessive stress , and mallnutrition : ¨¨refined ¨” foods ,like vegatable oil ( an example flaxseed is good for you the oil is not , has no choline in it , this being water soluble , so is present in the whole food , not the oil ) and sugar etc. , this is why flaxseedoil can cause prostate cancer . and the whole seed can cure it…,also never eat foods from packages ,coming from factories , like ¨¨ heart healthy ¨¨margarines ,and oils etc ( see doctor Esselstyn, no oil ! ) it is only healthy for the people who make the profit……
    This choline together with acethyl (see acete as vinegar ) forms acethylcholine ,this is the activator of the parasympatic nerve centre , so choline is essential for good health , the richest choline foods being liver and eggs , foods that are being dodged because of ¨¨ dangerous cholesterol ¨¨…….,
    Lately they ¨ discovered ¨¨ that cholesterol is not that unhealthy …, even essential to good health , it is the same as saying nails are a hazard because someone died afrer a car crash caused by … a nail .!
    My last comment : i think bipolar disorder is the mental expression of an imbalance of the automic nerve centre ,as almost all disease and should bee seen and treated as such .
    From Utrecht the Netherlands : good health to you all!!
