About the book:
A Promise of Hope author, Autumn Stringam, suffered from bipolar disorder for years, and after the suicides of her grandfather and mother, expected that the disease would also take her life. Then her father found the miracle that saved her.
A Promise of Hope is the personal story of Autumn’s flight from madness to wellness, all due to the vitamin and mineral supplement that works on the premise that many forms of mental illness are caused by nutritional deficiencies. An honest book that exposes the hidden torment of bipolar disorder, it is the story of a daughter seeking to forgive her mother. A Promise of Hope is also an astonishing scientific account that moves from a kitchen table in Alberta to the treatment offices of a distinguished Harvard psychiatrist and into the labs of a skeptical medical establishment. It climaxes in a bitter–but eventually triumphant–battle with Health Canada, in which the tiny micronutrient treatment company is exonerated and praised for saving the lives of thousands of Canadians previously thought lost to mental illness. More than anything, A Promise of Hope is a powerful story and a call for a new understanding of the causes of mental illness and its treatments.
