In Lewis Carrollâs famous 1871 fable Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, the heroine ponders what the world is like on the other side of a mirror’s reflection. To Aliceâs surprise, she is able to step through the mirror to an alternative world. In this reflected version of her house, Alice finds a book with looking-glass poetry, “Jabberwocky.” Realizing she is traveling through an inverted world, Alice recognizes that the verse on the pages are written in mirror-writing. What if we have been living in an âinverted world?â For those with mood disorders â or addictive/compulsive behaviors it feels that way. Inverted, disconnected, alone and afraid. Caught in the rabbit hole of our minds. Anthony Stephan, the founder of Truehope Inc. is inviting you to walk out of the dark throes of your inverted world into an alternative world. What if we have been reading the script wrong? Instead of drugging our minds, we need to be feeding our brains micronutrients to optimize our mental and physical health.
Anthony Stephan is the founder of Truehope, a leading brain health supplement company. His quest to find a natural solution for bipolar disorder started with a personal tragedy – the suicide of his wife, who battled bipolar her entire life, and the discovery that two of his nine children were afflicted with the disease. Through his hard work, he helped his children reclaim their lives. But he didnât stop there â to date, heâs helped over 100,000 people through the Truehope Program, in over 600 countries. There are now over 20 independent journal publications on his product.
For Stephan, the assurances of a Calgary psychiatrist, that his uncontrollable teenage son would never improve, and instead deteriorate was the prod to find an answer. He was told he should prepare for another suicide in his family. âThat hit me in the gut. Something snapped. I was not prepared to accept that God would put people on the Earth to suffer like this. There had to be an answer.â
