Reducing Inflammation to Improve Mental Health
This episode is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.
We are hearing more and more about how inflammation is implicated in many mental health issues including anxiety and OCD. But what does that mean? Are there ways we can see if our child is struggling with inflammation? Are there things we can change in their diet or lifestyle that will reduce inflammation?
I don’t know those answers, but I do know someone who does!
That is why I invited Dr. Ann Kulze, a renowned physician and founder of the Healthy Living School to come and talk to us.
Dr. Ann has been featured on the Dr. Oz show, Oprah and Friends Radio, Time, and WebMD sharing her expertise in this area.

Note from the show:
On the podcast Dr. Ann recommended testing “hsCRP” and “Sed rate”. However, she’s unsure if they have standards for doing the hsCRP in kids and imagines pediatricians would likely say they don’t run hsCRP. Sed rates are not super sensitive but can give some indication of inflammation. A sed rate will only be positive in context of higher levels of inflammation as occurs in context of healing or self-defense.
