[Testimonial] Bipolar Disorder Treatment Malaysia - Crystal Chong

For years I have dealt with depression, anxiety, moments of crying and suspected having PTSD. 17 years ago, I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder by psychiatrist at UMMC. With that I dealt with symptoms with doctors prescriptions having multiple side effects to control symptoms. 

I found SOL integrative wellness centre through the internet and met Hiro Koo. He recommended EEG biofeedback therapy to me. After 10 sessions of the therapy, changes in my symptoms is impressed especially the sleeping quality. Now I can sleep through the night. Besides that, I am now feeling more calm and less emotionally sensitive. Most importantly, I noticed my heart palpitation is reduced which I called it as "anxiety attack".

Thank you for my new life and experience. The therapy is added quality years to my life. I would recommended the therapy. It will change your life!

What is bipolar disorder?

Bipolar disorder is characterized by unusually large fluctuations in mood such that a person experiences recurrent episodes of depressedmood and episodes of being in an abnormally “elevated, expansive or irritable” mood according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 4th ed. of the American Psychiatric Society (DSM-IV, 1994). Bipolar disorder was previously known as manic-depressive illness.

Describing Bipolar Disorder

Before describing the diagnostic features of bipolar disorder, it is necessary to understand that the elevated mood mentioned in the definition above is classified into two subtypes; manic, and hypomanic.
The DSM-IV states that a hypomanic episode is distinguished from a manic episode in that hypomania is not so severe as mania and does not lead to “marked impairment in social or occupational functioning or requiring hospitalization”.
Hence the symptoms exhibited in mania and hypomania are similar varying only in degree or intensity and may include:
  • Self esteem significantly elevated above the usual, grandiosity
  • Decreased need for sleep
  • Hyperactivity
  • Talking too much and or feeling the need to talk
  • Racing thoughts
  • Increased distractibility
  • An intense drive to attain some goal (sexual, social or career in nature)
  • Engaging in pleasurable activities without considering the long term consequences e.g. buying a condominium on the spur of the moment perhaps without the necessary financial means.
