An interesting article was published this week in Psychology Today that talks about how inflammation in the body not only causes depression but also alters our mood and even decision making.
About 15 years ago I began to study this link. I even purchased the domain address inflamedbrain.com because I felt that one day this information would become mainstream.
And here we are!
The approach I take to treating patients often involves recommendations that lower inflammation in the body.
The fields of psychology and even sociology will likely evolve to incorporate this new information about how to help people lead more focused and clear lives.

An amazing group of young women gathered today at Colony High School, as part of an international and intergenerational leadership program called “Girls Fly
,” founded by an equally amazing woman Gael Sylvia Pullen. The topic was “kindness” and we talked about how acts of kindness develop a part of your brain that makes you more compassionate. And don’t we need more compassion in the world today! We watched the Kindness Boomerang video
to demonstrate kindness in action. And then, there was this moment while presenting, where I realized that the reason patients speak highly about what we do for them is not due to intelligence or hard work (at least it doesn’t feel like hard work). It is due to really caring
. And that compassion and care comes from a dedicated practice where you choose
to be kind. This translates into a level of focus that allows for the creation of treatment plans that really work.
It is simply a decision.
As Mr. Rogers said so well, ” There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.”
With great hope for the future,

Here is a great article from Harvard Medical School’s health blog that clearly lists some of the main chemicals that we want our kids to steer clear of, and why. At our office we test children for imbalances that are sometimes caused by too much exposure to these chemicals, that can lead to avoidable health problems. They are often referred to as “endocrine disrupters” because they cause hormonal imbalances in the body.
It is a quick read and worth a look!
