New studies show that depression is actually an inflammatory disease. It’s one that starts in the gut where cytokines, which are inflammatory regulators, are released in the gut due to food intolerances and other imbalances. The cytokines cross the blood brain barrier as they leak through the gut into the bloodstream and then suppress frontal cortex activity. Frontal cortex suppression symptoms mirrors depression symptom. So it turns out that depression is not necessarily a chemical imbalance, but a condition that can be controlled and improved through identification of food intolerances and management of pro-inflammatory foods and cytokine reduction systemically. This is a new functional approach to the very bothersome condition of depression. If you suffer from depression and want a better way of solving the puzzle call our Austin clinic today.
