Mental health, inflammation, and mood foods

Mental health issues have a huge impact on society. Some suggest that their impact is larger than any other chronic disease, including heart disease or diabetes.

There are so many factors involved in complex conditions like mental health issues. Science is just starting to unravel one of these factors – inflammation.

First, we’ll go over the many links between inflammation and mental health (there are a few). Then, we’ll talk about some exciting research into natural approaches – things like foods, nutrients, and lifestyle upgrades – and how these are related to better mental health.

NOTE: None of these are a substitute for professional medical advice. If you have any of these conditions, make sure you’re being monitored regularly by a licensed healthcare professional.
