Worth reading this! For most of my adult life I had very severe depression (caused by several factors, including symptoms of ME but I had a GP who treated such matters with contempt). Drug treatments for anxiety and depression have been linked to dementia and I preferred to avoid them wherever I could. Perhaps foods which have the reputation for having anti-inflammatory properties could be researched and I think the role of chemicals in auto-immune illnesses needs more attention. I am concerned that most research focuses on finding pharmaceuticals to treat illnesses rather than causes and preventions.
