Is Your Depression Due to Brain Inflammation Induced by Vaccines?

Holy Hormones Journal:  #hearthiswell #CDCwhistleblower – Depression and all of the drugs that have been created to alter this state of mind – a biochemical imbalance I might add – as this article refers to is actually being linked to vaccines. Say what? Did I ever see this one coming?

Read what Jan. 4, 2015 he Guardian article entitled: Is depression a kind of allergic reaction? A growing number of scientists are suggesting that depression is a result of inflammation caused by the body’s immune system. 

Well, howdy do… the author asks the question “What if it was a physical illness that just happens to make people feel pretty lousy? Would that make it less of a big deal to admit to? Could it even put a final nail in the coffin of the idea that depression is all in the mind?”

And then goes on to state:

“The basis of this new view is blindingly obvious once it is pointed out: everyone feels miserable when they are ill. That feeling of being too tired, bored and fed up to move off the sofa and get on with life is known among psychologists as sickness behaviour. It happens for a good reason, helping us avoid doing more damage or spreading an infection any further.

It also looks a lot like depression. So if people with depression show classic sickness behaviour and sick people feel a lot like people with depression – might there be a common cause that accounts for both?

The answer to that seems to be yes, and the best candidate so far is inflammation – a part of the immune system that acts as a burglar alarm to close wounds and call other parts of the immune system into action. A family of proteins called cytokines sets off inflammation in the body, and switches the brain into sickness mode.

Both cytokines and inflammation have been shown to rocket during depressive episodes, and – in people with bipolar – to drop off in periods of remission. Healthy people can also be temporarily put into a depressed, anxious state when given a vaccine that causes a spike in inflammation. Brain imaging studies of people injected with a typhoid vaccine found that this might be down to changes in the parts of the brain that process reward and punishment.”

So now – not only do vaccines lead to neurological dmage as in ASD – but they affect the immune system which causes brain inflammation. Note the last statement above… “typhoid vaccine found that this might be down to changes in the parts of the brain that process reward and punishment.” The reward punishment parts of the brain have everything to do with addiction.

Think of how many people are suffering from mental health issues in the U.S. This is just depressing.

Depression An Infectious Disease? New Studies Suggest Brain Inflammation Is The Physical Culprit Behind Mental Health Problems

Recent studies have caused a growing number of scientists to conclude that depression is just as much of a physical illness as it is a mental illness.  According to The Guardian, the basis of the study is as such: everyone feels miserable when they are ill. Many sluggish behaviors associated with depression can be categorized as sickness behavior.

TIME reports that one explanation tying both the physical and mental ailments of depression together is inflammation of the brain. This occurs when the immune system is called into action after the body suffers a wound.

A set of proteins called cytokines is integral to setting off this brain inflammation, which is why people tend to feel down when they are ill. The Guardian reports that both brain inflammation and cytokines tend to rocket during depressive episodes. Furthermore, completely healthy people can also be temporarily put into a depressed, anxious state when given a vaccine that causes a spike in inflammation.

Because infections are known to cause inflammation, some scientists have gone so far as to label depression as an infectious – but not contagious – disease. However, not all scientists are willing to do the same, as obesity and a diet full of trans fats and sugars have also been known to cause inflammation.
