    So I did a bit of net research. Good sites, medical sites, and learned a lot. You are right, Roger, it's a supplement, with some good research to back up claims of better brain function when used in lower doses and in a different form. The nutritional supplement form is Lithium Orotate and it's perfectly safe. The Bipolar treatment form is Lithium as Eskalith or Lithobid (where Lithium is in the form of Lithium Carbonate), which can have some serious side-effects.

    As the nutritional supplement, Lithium Orotate, it's perfectly safe. It's a type of salt, basically. Thanks, Roger. That was very useful.

    Added: Apparently it takes about three weeks of regular use for it to start having an effect.
    Ya . . . As I just noted in answer to Phenom . . . lithium orotate.

    It is a winner . . . for all folks, but particularly for we oldies who might be getting a little deficient in it because of the daily diet most are forced to suffer

    To be honest, I am seeing more and more gross symptoms of major deficiencies of these little known essentials . . . it is interesting to me to be among the health nuts at the organic farmers market V and I frequent as compared to what I see of the physical condition of other regular folks eating what is now essentially polluted GMO fare . . .

    And I restrain myself from posting on the crimes and why behind that shit . . . but you can google the point that what the alteration in the gene structure of that crap is, is done to induce sterility in the living organisms (insects originally) that eat the crop . . .

    What's not been researched is what relationship has our human evolved genome to that of the lower life forms in respect to that reproduction gene.
    Life is supposed to be enjoyed, Mate!

    Don't show me the money . . . give me the TRUTH!

    Why are their quotes around "therapy?"

    While lithium is the old standard for bipolar, there are a lot better medications for it now. However, like lithium, everything comes with possible side effects. At least with lithium (probably because so much study was done), it was monitored through CT scan and blood levels to make sure the patient wasn't taking too much (or too little) rather than just looking at the patient and wondering. Whereas with SSRIs with anti-psychotics, doctors have to sort of fly by the seat of their pants unless they can monitor with weekly check-ins.

    I understand the anti-psych rhetoric, but there are studies behind it.

Because of you putting things in proper perspective for me in your most recent PM's to me about why some folks here continue to vent and that it's duly warranted because of present day ongoing abuses they continue to endure, my awareness and recognition level of the severity of what you said became heightened. Thank you for bringing my contradiction to my attention (and everybody's elses) I certainly have my flaws and shortcomings and have no problem openly admitting I made a mistake when I have. It's pretty embarrassing however to have this incident of quirkiness of mine put into the spotlight in the open forum for all to read. Geez I now feel that to continue participating here I must be extremely careful of every single thing I say (which of course one should) because I already have been since day one and will continue to be scrutinized like a glass plate of germs is under a microscope and Lord help me if I err in anyway shape or form going forward...I may just get flogged in the ESMB town square. LOL


    There's gonna be a flogging? Yay!

    Actually, Trate* and I had a great discussion about this by PM. He ALMOST posted his PM to me on the board - it was really good and I wanted him to share it, but then he got shy or something. Oh well.

    He's alright and he's doing JUST FINE here.


    * Trate is my nickname for you, Tom. I know what the eight means.

    Yes, I know that you have adopted the nickname "Trate" for me. It's very fine.
    It isn't that I feel shy about posting my PM reply to you JS...I just didn't want to make it seem like I was tooting my own horn or "Hey guys and gals Just Shiela really liked my post...so I must be an okay person afterall so please read it" but again thank you JS for the very nice compliment. I'm finding my way around in here, learning the ESMB "how to not keep getting tossed about" techniques" LOL ...and to just continue to be my honest self - flaws and all.
