They have not identified a single cause that triggers this condition. Instead, they suggest, several risk factors, including ‘racial trauma’ may predispose people to depression.

However, there is now an extensive body of data showing that the causes of depression might not be that deep. There is more scientific evidence than ever associating inflammation in the body with psychological disorders.

Research published by the National Institutes of Health, shows that clinical depression is accompanied by increased oxidative and nitrosative stress (O&NS) and autoimmune responses directed against O&NS modified neoepitopes.

Dr. Amsu, an endocrinologist specializing in the unique metabolic and nutritional needs of People of Color says “Absolutely, inflammation in the body triggers neurological inflammation which often results in neurological disorders like depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue syndrome. One of the greatest triggers of inflammation is an accumulation of toxins.”
