We understand just how much bipolar disorder can impact your quality of life. We are committed to helping you recover and get your life back on track.
Our Results Speak For Themselves…
Simply put, our programme gets better results than traditional treatment. In fact, our patients frequently describe the results as ‘life changing’. Below you will find a brief overview of the differences between traditional treatment for bipolar and The London Psychiatry Centre’s treatment programme.
|Traditional treatment||vs.||Our treatment programme|
|41.8% recovery rate in bipolar type I and II only.
No remission in subthreshold bipolar (Gariga et al), the most common form of bipolar disorder, and subthreshold symptoms in bipolar type I and II (treatment-resistant bipolar disorder).
|96.4% recovery rate in treatment-resistant bipolar disorder I, II, subthreshold, rapid cycling, and depression with agitation and racing thoughts (whether it alternates or not with periods of flat depression with lethargy).|
|80% of bipolar patients take on average 3.8 drugs||1.8 drugs needed on average
58% of patients only need 1 drug
|One size fits all||Precision medicine personalised to you|
|Drugs usually not well tolerated||Drugs well tolerated for years|
|Side effects that severely impact quality of life||Minimal, if any, side effects with substantial improvement in quality of life|

We encourage you to browse the different pages we have in our bipolar clinic area to fully understand the research behind this treatment programme.
Patients treated at The London Psychiatry Centre, using a combination of precision medicine, rTMS and appropriate high-dose thyroid hormones, have recovered after years of unsuccessful treatment with traditional treatment.
Details of how treatment works have been published in Frontiers. Our peer-reviewed paper “A New Treatment Protocol of Combined High-Dose Levothyroxine and Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for the Treatment of Rapid-Cycling Bipolar Spectrum Disorders: A Cohort Evaluation of 55 Patients” is the first ever published study showing full recovery of severe mixed and depressive symptoms in all forms of bipolar disorders most importantly subthreshold symptoms, the most common presentation of bipolar disorders which fails to respond to quetiapine and mood stabilisers.
