Self-help tips for mid-range Personality Disorder

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is one of the most misunderstood mental health conditions. Conventional treatment often includes mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-psychotics, or a combination of these. But there are also several natural treatment options:

Diet: Avoid foods that are have high levels of allegens such as sugar, soy, dairy, gluten, corn, artificial dyes, preservatives, and additives.

Nutrient supplementation: Vitamin and mineral deficiencies have been associated with a variety of psychiatric conditions. Be sure to get enough of these important nutrients—omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, vitamin D, and probiotics.

Exercise: Another natural way to manage BPD and it’s easily accessible and free. You don’t need a big physical routine, even just walking may reduce symptoms.

Get good sleep – Sleeping problems are very common and the brain needs sleep to process the day’s new information. Seven or more hours of sleep and consistent sleep/wakeup times are best. See sleep aids at

Relax: Engage in relaxation techniques such as mindfulness, deep breathing, meditation, or yoga to help calm your mind and body. See relaxation aids at

Avoid or reduce caffeine, smoking, alcohol and recreational drugs – While it can seem that these help you relax and feel better, these substances can make anxiety worse.

During these uncertain times, your mental well-being is more important than ever and waiting until life gets back to “normal” is likely to make your symptoms worsen over time. Start now.
