313: How to Live Medication-free with Bipolar Type 1 with Marisa Imôn


At age 19, Marisa Imôn was diagnosed with bipolar type 1 and had to withdraw from school during a manic episode. All her life leading up to this she had been at the mercy of her emotions – never knowing if she’d wake up feeling suicidal or euphoric. But to the world around her, she was just a happy, friendly girl.

She hid her emotional intensity until it reached a breaking point in the form of mania. Modern medicine and therapy made her believe there was no recovery, or at least not without medication. She was told that people with bipolar type one can go on to live happy, healthy, and successful lives, but only if they’re medicated. 

In this episode, Marisa shares the tools that she uses daily to help her work with her emotional intensity instead of feeling like her emotions are working against her.

One of the biggest misconceptions about magnesium is that you just “need more” of the mineral and you’ll be healthy and optimized. But the TRUTH is, there are many different types of magnesium — and each plays a critical role in different functions in your body. Most “healthy” people only get 1-2 forms at best (much of the population is deficient in ALL forms) — but when you get all 7 major forms of magnesium, that’s when the magic happens. That’s why I’m so excited to share BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough —it contains every key form of magnesium, in exactly the right ratio.
