There is a link between the motivation to do things and chronic low-grade inflammation!
The journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences Researchers from Emory University published that "inflammatory cytokines signal immunometabolic shifts," which directly impact mesolimbic dopamine (DA). The mesolimbic pathway, also referred to as the "reward pathway”, is implicated in the willingness to put in effort or seek reward. These findings could impact the way we look at behavioral challenges - for which a causative factor may be inflammation. firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr Gundry’s Plant Paradox book explains causes of inflammation caused by lectins. The book provides a list of foods to eat that decrease the exposure to lectins. As a cardiologist he had many patients heading for heart surgery that used this diet to prevent having to have the heart surgery. At this point people with other diseases have brought their inflammation down causing a direct effect on decreasing symptoms of their illness.
