The Inflammation Syndrome: The Complete Nutriti...

Despite the overwhelming prevalence of anxiety disorders in modern society, medications and psychotherapy often fail to achieve complete symptom resolution. A complementary approach to medicating symptoms is to address the underlying metabolic pathologies associated with mental illnesses and anxiety. This may be achieved through nutritional interventions. In this perspectives piece, we highlight the roles of the microbiome and inflammation as influencers of anxiety. We further discuss the evidence base for six specific nutritional interventions: avoiding artificial sweeteners and gluten, including omega-3 fatty acids and turmeric in the diet, supplementation with vitamin D, and ketogenic diets. We attempt to integrate insights from the nutrition science-literature in order to highlight some practices that practitioners may consider when treating individual patients. Notably, this piece is not meant to serve as a comprehensive review of the literature, but rather argue our perspective that nutritional interventions should be more widely considered among clinical psychiatrists. Nutritional psychiatry is in its infancy and more research is needed in this burgeoning low-risk and potentially high-yield field.

The Inflammation Syndrome: The Complete Nutriti...


CRPS is more common in females but can occur in anyone at any age, with a peak around age 40. It is rare in the elderly, who have less inflammation after injury, and in young children who heal so quickly and completely.

Inflammation is a complicated process, and the connection between food and inflammation is still being studied. Some research shows that certain nutrients, like vitamin E, magnesium, and fiber as well as antioxidants like polyphenols can reduce inflammation. Diets that are high in refined starches, sugar, saturated and artificial trans fats; and that are low in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and omega-3 fatty acids, have been associated with increased inflammation in the body. However, research suggests that changes to food choices alone are unlikely to solve chronic inflammation completely. 041b061a72
