Having a diagnosis of a mood disorder is often scary and misunderstood. It is sometimes hard to demonstrate to other people that it is a physical illness not dissimilar to diabetes or lupus.

I am excited to read about and share recent research into the physical aspects of mood disorders. There is mounting evidence that both the gut and inflammation have something to do with the cause and/or symptoms of depression, anxiety & bipolar. There is so much anecdotal evidence that your food affects your mood, it is great to have the research handy to back that up.

Take away: Add a good probiotic to your diet and do what you can to reduce inflammation. Please like and share to help raise awareness among your friends.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/28/depression-brain-inflamma_n_6555222.html
