In clinical practice we routinely work with patients who are depressed, and also suffering from
inflammation frequently coupled with life altering pain. While an individual patient may present with a
single concern, exploration of their overall chemistry often reveals multiple comorbid variables.
Depression and inflammation are strongly correlated, as demonstrated by a 2013 peerreviewed
report. The clinical findings of this report revealed significantly higher inflammatory index scores (a
composite score including the inflammatory markers tumor necrosis factorα (TNFα), interleukin6 (IL
6), interleukin10 (IL10), and Creactive protein (CRP)) in individuals with major depressive disorder read more…
