Treatments for depression mostly focus on brain chemicals such as serotonin; however, scientists now think inflammation, set off by an overactive immune system, may be the source of the problem.
This new finding opens up new opportunities for treatment of depression.
And by the way, stick with me thru this video to the end, and I’ll direct you to a source for other great articles about health related topics.
The research shows that about one-third of people with depression have higher levels of cytokines, proteins that control the way the immune system reacts, which could indicate inflammation in their brains.
Experimental medicine studies found that a notable percentage of healthy individuals treated with interferon, an inflammatory drug, became depressed.
One paramount outcome emerging from this research would be an understanding of the connection between the body and the mind leading to more effective treatments for depression.
