One week ago, the world heard the news of Robin Williams’ passing. Since then, many conversations have begun - aimed at removing stigmas associated with illnesses such as depression and bipolar. These conversations are long overdue, prompted by the loss of a man who felt like a dear and familiar friend.
That key is the nutritive approach to healing mental afflictions.
Consider the following from the Huffington Post:
- By 2030, depression will outpace cancer, stroke, war and accidents as the world's leading cause of disability and death, according to the World Health Organization.
- Each year, 34,000 people commit suicide, about twice as many deaths as caused by homicide -- about one death per 15 minutes.
- Fully 90 percent of those who take their own lives struggle with an underlying mental health issue.
I suspect that there will come a time in the not too distant future, when we will all look back and say, “Of course bipolar can be eradicated with nutrients. Who doesn’t know that!?!?” Just as Rickets and Scurvy were successfully treated with Vitamin D and Vitamin C respectively, mental health afflictions have their foundational remedy in nutrition as well.
We also learned this past week (in a statement released by Williams’ wife) that besides depression, Mr. Williams had been suffering from the early stages of Parkinson’s. This further compounds the evidence that essential nutritional elements were missing as cases of Parkinson’s are also being rehabilitated with the nutritive approach. Again, this is not mainstream knowledge yet (not by a long shot), but the conversation has begun. A handful of leading edge doctors and individuals are confirming the incredible degree to which micronutrients can heal - over 900 afflictions to date have been successfully treated with optimum micronutrient intake.
Because I want to get Nutritional Healing information into the hands of as many people as possible, NGD is sponsoring a BIG book giveaway. I am arranging for 10 paperback copies (minimum) of Med-Free Bipolar by Aspen Morrow*, to be delivered into the hands of selected NGD subscribers who comment on this information. Med-Free Bipolar shot up to the #2 book out of 7000 on the topic following Williams’ death, and #1 in Amazon’s rankings for alternative treatments for mood disorders.
This book was written by a woman who has survived the ravages of bipolar and has thrived through nutritional treatments to share the journey - and the healing protocol- with others.
Please, if you know of anyone suffering from similar afflictions, educate yourself! Pass the information on to their loved ones. Sometimes a depressed brain cannot help itself, even with the right information. Once the brain and spirit is “broken”, it needs all the support it can get to begin functioning optimally again. This support usually comes from friends and loved ones, education, and appropriate treatment.
If you are interested in spreading awareness or would like to learn more about the nutritive approach to optimal mental health, please leave a comment below, indicating that you would like a paperback copy of Aspen Morrow’s book, Med-Free Bipolar.

The world can’t afford to lose another beautiful soul to this illness.
