In 1996, actress Margot Kidder, best known for her portrayal of Superman’s beloved Lois Lane, realized her bipolar disorder had matured into something beyond her control.
She found herself in a new state – one characterized by chain smoking, insomnia and caffeine addiction. At one point, Kidder had gone missing for three days only to be found by police in a state of complete disarray. She realized then that she had to do something to take back control of her life.
Kidder had suffered from bipolar disorder since her teens. After her disappearance, Kidder proactively sought solutions to improve her condition. She discovered orthomolecular medicine and began a carefully monitored diet and supplement regime to help curb the effects of the bipolar disorder.
In 2000, four years after her disappearance, Kidder wrote “My health is great, due to this natural medicine path I’m following…” and has since become an advocate of orthomolecular medicine.
