Christopher Lowry, researcher at the University of Colorado, has made groundbreaking discoveries on the relationship between heat and well being.

- Intuitively, we all know that heat makes us feel good. This has been the point of departure for our research, Lowry says in the scientific journal Colorado Arts and Sciences.
Lowry has identified a group of neurons in the brain that releases increased amounts of serotonin in the body when the body temperature is elevated.

- We believe there might be a link between the system that is activated when the body is trying to cool down, and the feeling of relaxation and well being, Lowry says.

Christopher Lowry, Ph.D., an assistant professor of integrative physiology at the University of Colorado at Boulder, has been injecting mice with Mycobacterium vaccae, a harmless bacteria commonly found in soil, and has found that they increase the release and metabolism of serotonin in parts of the brain that control cognitive function and mood - much like serotonin-boosting antidepressant drugs do.

Digging in the dirt isn't the same as taking Prozac, of course, but Lowry argues that because humans evolved along with M. vaccae and a host of other friendly bugs, the relative lack of these "old friends" in our current environment has thrown our immune systems out of whack.
This can lead to inflammation, which is implicated in a host of modern ills, from heart disease to diabetes to depression.
"By reintroducing these bacteria in the environment, that may help to alleviate some of these problems," Lowry says.

There could be another reason for the effect, said study co-author Christopher Lowry. He pointed out that depression is associated with ruminating, and heating the body might force people to shift their mental focus from their own negative thoughts to the world around them. Lowry is associate professor of integrative physiology at the University of Colorado-Boulder.
