Cardston Man Finds Natural Bipolar Cure

CALGARY, CANADA -- When four family members have the same nervous system disorder, it's enough to convince someone that something needs to be done. This is exactly what happened to Anthony Stephen.

With his two oldest children being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and his wife and father-in-law both taking their own lives as a result to the same disorder, Stephan knew that something other than traditional chemical treatments held the answer.

After the father of ten and LDS Church member discussed this with his friend David Hardy, the two came to realise that nutritional supplements, similar to those used to prevent aggressive, destructive behaviour with hogs, could be used to treat the disorder, also known as manic depression.

Now operating under the organisation of Synergy Group of Canada Inc., the two introduced their findings as EM Power Plus, a non-commercial product containing 36 vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, with amino acids to enhance the body's ability to absorb them.

Studies by the University of Calgary's faculty of medicine suggest EM Power Plus can improve bipolar disorder symptoms by 50 per cent within 30 days and reduce medication dosages by at least two-thirds.

Because of the success their product has seen, the research team has now received a $500,000 grant from the Alberta Science and Research Authority to conduct double-blind, randomized clinical trials of 100 people with bipolar disorder. This may provide other double-blind studies into EM Power's effectiveness for other disorders, such as ADHD, Tourette's Syndrome and depression.
