Bipolar II is a type of bipolar disorder that consists of depressive and hypomanic episodes.
Depressive episodes include sadness or hopelessness.
Hypomanic episodes include symptoms such as a persistent elevated or irritable mood,
anxiety, decreased need for sleep and increased self esteem.
Factors such as poor gut health make bipolar ii worse, but there is
Your gut is home to your microbiome, which is the trillions of bacteria and yeast.
It’s not only home to 80% of your immune system, but also 95% of the neurotransmitter
Your gut is often called your “second brain”.
When your microbiome is disrupted it leads to inflammation, which is caused by processed
foods, exposure to chemicals, the immune system attacking an infection, taking antibiotics
and some prescription drugs.
Bipolar II symptoms are made worse by gut inflammation, because it disrupts the production
of serotonin and makes symptoms such as anxiety and depression worse.
Symptoms were still occurring despite taking 150 mg of an SSRI, so a probiotic was taken to
supplement it. Symptoms were becoming minimized.

immune system and digestion, along with minimizing bipolar symptoms taking a probiotic has
been proven to help you lose weight helped me lose weight as well.
