This video aims to give some context for understanding what causes depression and why. It may be surprising to know that inflammation has a huge impact on your mood and health.
If this interests you, I highly recommend checking out Rhonda Patrick's interview with Dr. Charles Raison:
A lot of information for this video came from Charles Raison and Vladimir Maletic's book "The New Mind-Body Science of Depression" - https://www.amazon.com/New-Mind-Body-Science-Depression/dp/0393706664
Rhonda Patrick's video "The Underlying Mechanisms of Depression" is also a great resource for understanding the inflammatory component of depression - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqyjVoZ4XYg
