Publisher's Summary

Some children inherit the family nose. Autumn Stringam and her brother Joseph inherited bipolar disorder, a severe mental illness that led to the suicides of their mother and grandfather. Autumn was in a psychiatric hospital on suicide watch by the time she was 22. Joseph, at 15, was prone to violent episodes so terrifying that his family feared for their lives. But after Autumn and Joseph began taking a nutritional supplement developed by their father - and based, incredibly, on a formula given to aggressive hogs - their symptoms disappeared, and today they both lead normal, productive lives.A Promise of Hope is the story of Autumn's flight from madness to wellness and an astonishing scientific account of a treatment that has also helped thousands of others. It is a powerful call for a new understanding of mental illness, its causes and its treatments.

Fasten Your Seatbelt!

You are in for a real roller coaster with this great read. A beautifully written and excellently read book. The memories and descriptions are so precise I almost felt the pain, the mania and the joy.
The details of the fight for Truehope are like another roller coaster. I found it hard to switch off.
I work with people with mental illness and now have a much greater understanding of bipolar. A fantastic read, a book which should be read by all those who would deprive us of our right to chose how we care for our health. I was touched, moved, stunned, amazed. Congratulations Autumn, and your family,on your book and your life.

Incredible Story!

Autumn tells an incredible story about her life and overcoming her bipolar through vitamins and minerals... a cure that her father came by to save her brother and herself from their bipolar disease..... Sounds a little far-fetched but this really is an incredible story. A must read for anyone who knows, or has, bipolar or depression.

I love that Autumn reads and narrates the story herself. She is a delight to listen to throughout the story....

A bit of a sales pitch?

I feel the last few chapters were a bit of a sales pitch for the true hope programme/products.

With that said, the rest of Memoir, both the authors and her mothers story, have added some much needed context to my own story. I do recommend this book, just take the sales pitch with a pinch of salt.

Thank goodness it's not just me !

I really enjoyed this book and felt a connection and realised that I am not alone.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has this disorder or is connected to someone who suffers, I think the story gives answers to both the patient and those around them and should find it a good reference,
