If depression is caused by inflammation, then it’s not a Prozac deficiency. Some may need a prescription in the short-term to get back on their feet and stop any vicious cycles, but seeking out the root cause is an ideal ultimate goal.
- “People suffering from depression are loaded with cytokines”, which are biochemicals produced during inflammation.”
- “Cytokines skyrocket during depressive episodes and, in those with bipolar disorder, halt in remission. The fact that ‘normal,’ healthy people can become temporarily anxious or depressed after receiving an inflammatory vaccine — like typhoid — lends further credence to the theory. There are even those who think we should re-brand depression altogether as an infectious disease”
- “Inflammation can be caused by many things. Nutrition-wise, they include: Inflammation is caused by gut infections, imbalanced gut flora, obesity, high sugar diets, high quantities of trans fats, any chronic health condition (diabetes, heart disease, etc) and a nutrient deficiency.”**If this piques your interest, you might want to check out SpectraCell’s Nutrient Deficiency blood test.
