There certainly seems to be a relationship, but there's also the chicken or the egg question.
I suspect it might be a little of both. Each feeding the other.
Anti inflammatories are probably better than mood altering drugs, but we need to find the root cause of the malfunctioning immune system. I'd rather see treatments for that than treating the symptom, inflammation.

Treating symptoms is very profitable for pharmaceutical companies. To them, actual cures are dead ends.

Your saying what Functional Medicine doctors say and I believe in. They say find the route cause of an illness and treat it. Do not mask symptoms with medications ( drugs). I believe by the end of the 21 century doctors will all learn how.
Mark Hyman, Dr. Cole and Functional medicine doctors say they do this now. Hyman is unaffordable for most people. I read his book Ultra Metabolism in the early 2000 and learned much. I new more than most but, he woke me up.
Functional medicine doctors analyze what is wrong and figure out how to correct problems. Traditional doctors treat with drugs that mask systems and have numerous side effects.
