Depression: Goodbye Serotonin, Hello Stress and Inflammation

This article is a fascinating look at how depression is not simply a result of low serotonin levels, but rather the result of long-term inflammation and stress. This is a really important discovery, as it means that depression is not as simple as just increasing serotonin levels, but rather managing stress and inflammation levels in order to reduce the symptoms of depression.

I think this is a really important discovery, as it means that we can focus our attention on the underlying causes of depression, rather than just the symptoms. It also shows that reducing stress and inflammation can be beneficial in treating depression, which is a very welcome breakthrough.

It is also encouraging to see that depression is not an insurmountable problem, but rather something that can be managed and treated with the right approach. I hope to see more research into this area in the future, as it could really revolutionize the way we treat depression.
