History of Bipolar Disorder

During the Ancient times in Greece, around the 1st century, physicians back then were already recording symptoms of the bipolar disorder or manic – depression. One of which is Aretaeus of Cappadocia, his notes were unnoticed for many years, but it’s one of the earliest records of this diagnosis. As mentioned earlier, the Greeks and also Romans are the ones who coined the terms “melancholia,” which means manic and depressive today. During those times, they also found out that lithium salts can calm people who are hyperactive, and at the same time, also boosting one’s energy for those who are depress. Today, believe it or not, lithium is one of the most common treatments for people diagnose with a bipolar disorder. During the ancient times, people with mental disorders are being executed because they are believed to be possessed by demons. Religious dogmas order mentally unstable people to be put to death. Fortunately through the advancement in medical studies, this kind of practice eventually stopped. Show More
