Stress may be one of the most obvious causes of depression, but the link between stress and inflammation is less well-known. Research has shown that psychosocial stress stimulates the pro-inflammatory cytokine network. The significance of this information is in my opinion very important because it shifts our focus from viewing depression as being a disease caused by a chemical imbalance, which often requires medication to correct, to being a symptom of a deeper, underlying problem. It also leads to entirely new avenues of treatment, many of them more effective and safer than antidepressant drugs. On tonight’s show, Clyde Lewis talks with pharmacist, Ben Fuchs about DEPRESSION IS DEPRESSING.
