  • It is a very common phenomenon—depression and physical pain. They are both caused or contributed to by similar changes in body/brain chemistry. Depression is often the mental manifestation of imbalances in serotonin and other brain chemicals, and physical pain results from the same imbalances, manifested on a body-level. These can take the forms of arthritis, sports injuries, back problems, headaches, or just daily muscular aches and pains.

    The typical medical approach to this chemical imbalance is to initiate a program of SSRI’s (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors) such as Prozac and Celexa. Additionally, for physical pain support NSAID’s (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ie. ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin, etc.) are often either suggested by the physician, or used over the counter by the patients. This approach, though common, misses some very important elements that underlie the identification of depression and body pain. It also neglects to understand the potentially lethal combination that includes SSRI’s and NSAID’s.
