Does mental stress have an effect on the body ?
It is a scientifically proven fact that stress puts our immune system out of balance. The hormones and other chemical substances –acids and enzymes of our body fall out of balance and give rise to various diseases. These are termed PSYCHOSOMATIC DISEASES – diabetes, hypertension, thyroid disorders, hyperacidity, psoriasis, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine, obesity and many more.
Our HPA (hypothalamic pituitary axis) is activated under stress leading to release of hormone cortisol. This hormone then further has its harmful effects on the body. HCL acid secretion also increases.
When you have targets to meet, you may suffer from hypertension, hyperacidity.
Too many thoughts due to stress could cause migraine.
If you are depressed and low, your hormones get disturbed and you binge more leading to obesity.
Long standing stress causes the blood vessel to constrict (with age they harden too) leading to hypertension and heart diseases.
Stress has no bounds. It occurs at every age. For a child, his demands & peer pressure, ability to cope up with surroundings, his self esteem, challenges to be met are all stressful.
Different phase in life fromchildhood,adolescence,adulthood,parenthood,menopause to old age all have their fair share of stress.
