Your Infectious Personality - Microbial & Viral Influence on Mood Disorders

Event Details

With mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression, it is important to be at the forefront when addressing these conditions. Traditional methods leave much to be desired and patients are left with very little options from both the natural and pharmaceutical world. The role of infections in the pathogenesis of different mood disorders may hold the key. In fact, some viruses can directly affect the central nervous system while other microbes can manipulate nervous system function from a distance.
