About the documentary

Hosted by actress Margot Kidder, who suffered from bipolar disorder, the documentary chronicles the experiences of patients and doctors who went beyond conventional psychiatry to find answers in orthomolecular medicine. Margot and other patients discuss their mental illness, their difficulties in getting answers and their final recoveries using diet, vitamins and a minimum of pharmacological intervention. Doctors including Abram Hoffer, Hugh Riordan, and Hyla Cass, describe their therapeutic methods, and their professional satisfaction at seeing patients recover from the “incurable”. (50 min.)
