SUICIDE AND SYMMETRY
Suicide is a very aggressive act. According to JAMA, the journal of American Medical Association, more than 30,000 Americans succeeded in committing suicide every year. This is 10,000 more than those killed in homicides that year. When it comes to suicide prevention there is no single drug that is best for everyone but Symmetry has been shown to be consistently effective in mitigating bi-polar depression associated with suicidal ideation. Just as in mild to moderate depression some patients respond better to one protocol than to the other. We believe homeopathic lithium orotate should be the first option in the conversation about suicide and the bipolar afflicted. Here are a few reasons why.
- Lithium Orotate is stronger and more bioavailable than carbonate or citrate forms of lithium.
- Symmetry has a ten year track record of supporting bipolar depression. Symmetry is a natural protocol that possesses a powerful leveling effect.
- Many other antidepressants like SSRI’s (Prozac, Paxil, Welbutrin) which often seem to potentiate suicidal ideation. Independent studies have demonstrated that lithium and GABA mitigate the hormones called dopamine and norepinephrine. This renders it supportive of anti-impulsive and anti-aggressive behavior.
Suicide remains an extraordinarily high risk for the bipolar afflicted. Bipolar disorder affects 1.3% to 1.5% of the population and if untreated suicide attempts occur far too frequently. Symmetry, a natural form of lithium is nontoxic and inexpensive and gentile enough for children and adults. With its blood balancing and neuronal mitigating properties, long-term use is an excellent place to start, regardless of age..
