This new finding opens up new opportunities for treatment of depression.
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.
Numerous research studies have shown that chiropractic care positively impacts immune system function and improves depression symptoms. One study, from the National College of Chiropractic, found disease-fighting white blood cell counts were higher just 15 minutes after a chiropractic adjustment.
Chiropractic adjustments also allow blood to flow more freely, relaxing the muscles. This stress relief can be extremely therapeutic for those with depression.
If you or a loved one is looking for relief from mental health symptoms, chiropractic care is a proven method that will improve your quality of life.
Make chiropractic a regular health habit for the whole family to ensure your spines and nervous systems are working the best they can.
And that is this week’s Family Health Minute.
