Dr. Jessica Peatross, M.D., wrote a blog article called “Mold, Biotoxin Illness and Your Mind: Is A Hidden Infection Causing Your Anxiety and Depression?”
From the article:
Whats truly interesting is that many of the immune markers that indicate biotoxin illness or CIRS, or chronic inflammatory response syndrome, also are indicative and suggestive of stark inflammation, including neuroinflammation. New studies are now linking mood disorders, like anxiety and depression, to neuroinflammation rather than blaming it all on genetics or imbalanced neurotransmitters. These markers include MSH, VIP, VEGF, TGF-beta 1, MMP9, C4a, ACTH/cortisol and ADH/osmolality and are linked to dysregulated hormonal, neuroendocrine, gastrointestinal and immune function. This is an all over-body, systemic attack (more of this to come). In fact, I believe this is the possessions spoke of in religious texts.
Speaking of possessions, some of the best evidence for this is in schizophrenia disorder. Schizophrenia is strongly correlated with toxoplasmosis, an obligatory parasite that invades the brain and can be contracted from cat litter boxes. Another study shows how inflammation and a higher incidence of Celiac disease, or gluten intolerance, is strangely found among schizophrenics. My opinion? Gluten has been adulterated from its natural version and feeds stealth infections which are the root cause of schizophrenia.
