Stress crumbles immune system, creates chemical imbalance

Stress crumbles immune system, creates chemical imbalance

Medically, it has been established that chronic symptoms of anxiety and stress can crumble our body's immune system. irrespective of the nature of the causes of stress--real or perceived--our subconscious mind reacts with the same body response by releasing stress hormones equal to the degree of our fear, worry or sense of threat. It brings about changes in the body's biochemical state with extra epinephrine and other adrenal steroids such as hydrocortisone in the bloodstream. it also induces increased palpitation and blood pressure in the body with mental manifestations such as anger, fear, worry or aggression. In short, stress creates anomalies in our body's homeostasis. When the extra chemicals in our bloodstream don't get used up or the stress situation persists, it makes our body prone to mental and physical illness.
