The TRUE cause of depression... revealed!

You know you're not "just sad."

When you're facing serious depression, you know there's something wrong beyond a little sadness.

Your doc will tell you it's all in your mind and prescribe brain-scrambling meds.

Now, scientists have admitted that you're right and your doc is wrong -- and it shows exactly why those antidepressant drugs he recommends often don't do a lick of good.

The problem is NOT just in your mind, and you're NOT just sad.

Your depression could be caused by an actual physical problem in your body!

Specifically, it's a problem with inflammation.

One leading expert told the Academy of Medical Sciences in London earlier this month that one major cause of depression is an overactive immune response that triggers inflammation.

That explains why illnesses that involve inflammation often lead to mood problems.

Inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid, for example, increase the risk of depression by more than 400 percent. Heart attack patients are also more likely to suffer inflammation... which leads to depression... which can lead to another heart attack.

But those aren't the only causes.

As the experts in London point out, that same type of inflammation can be caused by medication -- including vaccinations!

"We give people a vaccination, and they will become depressed," Professor Ed Bullmore, Head of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge, told the conference. "Vaccine clinics could always predict it, but they could never explain it."

Now, we can -- and that means the REAL treatment for these cases of depression isn't in taking mood meds.

It's in fighting inflammation!

On the one hand, this is good news. The medical mainstream is starting to recognize one of the root causes of depression.

And, who knows? Maybe some docs will stop dishing out antidepressant drugs once and for all.

But on the other hand, there's a little bad news.

Sure, they've recognized one of the true causes for many (but not all) cases of depression, but their solution isn't in fighting inflammation naturally.

It's in giving out another set of meds!

They want to put you on anti-inflammatory drugs, which come with a whole new set of risks.

There are far better and safer ways to fight inflammation and ease depression at the same time -- and one of the best is something I hope you're already taking.

The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil are some of nature's most powerful inflammation-fighters. Not coincidentally, high-dose fish oil is also a potent mood booster.

These high omega-3 doses are perfectly safe, but since they can also thin the blood a little bit, speak with your doctor beforehand.
