Stress causes illness

Let's see some data on the correlation between stress and illness

In today's society we have been used to it at a much faster pace than in past companies.

Just think of how the rhythm of life of generations was just before ours.

Our grandparents were probably struggling with agriculture and they knew exactly what they had to do and when to do it, having the time to be with the family and live in the present . Furthermore, the economic situation at the time was different because it allowed, having a job, to have the income necessary to be able to meet all the needs without additional uses.

We are currently shooting at the speed of light thanks to technology and thanks to the advancement we have had over the past 100 years. Also, you don't have the same foundations economic times of the past, today we need to reinvent ourselves e "Fight" to create your own space.

The idea that has been inserted over time.

We currently have a company committed to climbing โ€œi steps " to get to the top of a capitalist pyramid; this because over time the idea of having to have entered always have more and get more, even for necessity given the changes that have occurred over time a economic level.

So it's simple to find people projected to think totally about the future, about problems and constantly worry almost unable to live the present, what they have and theirs affections.

It is no exception to the common worker who has less and less securities, bills to pay, worries and sometimes few tools to manage the stress generated.

Even those who, for example, poorly manage emotions can being prey to heavy stress.

We did research to understand how much stress can influence people by researching authoritative sources and data tangible.

The result gives enough to think about.

Stress as a possible indirect cause of various pathologies.

Here 's what the government cancer research site thinks .

Psychological stress describes what people feel when they are under mental, physical, or emotional pressure. Although it is normal to experience some psychological stress from time to time, people who suffer from it at high levels or that experiencing it repeatedly over a long period of time may develop health problems (mental and / or physical).

How does the body react?

The body responds to physical, mental, or emotional pressure by releasing stress hormones (for example, epinephrine and norepinephrine) that raise blood pressure, speed up heart rate, and raise sugar levels in the blood. These changes help a person act with greater force and speed to escape a perceived threat.

Research has shown that people suffering from intense and long-term (i.e. chronic) stress can have digestive problems, fertility problems, urinary problems, and a weakened immune system. People who suffer of chronic stress are also more prone to viral infections such as the flu or cold and to have headaches, sleep disturbances, depression and anxiety.

Can it cause cancer?

Although the stress can cause a number of physical health problems , the evidence that it can cause cancer is weak. Some studies have indicated a link between various factors psychological and an increased risk of developing cancer, but others have not.

Apparent links between psychological stress and cancer could manifest in different ways. For example, people under stress may develop certain behaviors, such as smoking, overeating or alcohol consumption, which increase the the person's cancer risk. Or someone who has a relative with cancer may have a higher risk for cancer due to a shared inherited risk factor, not due to the diagnosis-induced stress of the member of the family.

This is what they report, you can read some information from this site .

The correlation is psychophysical stress that turns into unhealthy habits and therefore can lead to an increase in cancer risk.

Can it cause depression?

Here is another interesting excerpt from the site .

The central issue raised in this document is: Can Stress Cause Depression? More precise phrase: it can cause brain disorders thought of as underlying (in some forms) depression or particular components of the depressive syndrome.

Focusing on 5-HT and stress hormones, this question was answered in the affirmative, based on the following two considerations:

  1. Changes in 5-HT and hormone systems produced by prolonged stress substantially mimic disturbances in these systems that can be transformed into depression;
  2. Substantial evidence indicates that 5-HT and stress hormone disorders in depression have pathophysiological significance and not simply a consequence of the depressed state or a product of it generated by the depressive state.

Furthermore, the question was raised if a type of depression could be identified particularly stress-inducible . This question has also been answered affirmative.

The type of depression in question was called anxiety depression / aggression and characterized on three levels: psychopathologically, biologically and psychologically.

The preferential treatment of this was discussed type of depression.

In the study of stress-inducible depression, the research biological depression should shift attention from depression itself to neurobiological sequences.

The treatment of stress-inducible depressions and in particular its prevention should be geared to stress reduction and stress sensitivity, using both means biological and psychological.

You can read the article in English at this link .

In this case we analyzed how stress can lead back to a state of depression.

Obviously the examples shown are only two compared to that that stress can cause. In fact, among the searches most influential and based on the studies involved are found correlations with the following pathologies.

Acne, ulcers, hair loss, anxiety, chest pains and increased risk of heart attack.

How does stress affect relationships

Work-related stress is related to mood swings they can ruin relationships.

Work also contributes a lot to the accumulation of stress and this can cause mood swings. The situations that spoil the worker who would need a rest period every few hours of service should not be underestimated. Grueling hours or too frequent physical exertion at work can be quite a nuisance.

It is not uncommon to return home from work and be more susceptible to any event. This is because it requires due rest and refreshment but, it is more difficult, in the case of families with small children. Statistically in this phase about 20% of relationships are interrupted but that is not all.

An unhappy marriage or financial problem cause chronic stress.

Again, stress can arise. It is not uncommon for people with financial problems to develop chronic stress who, taken by negative thoughts, develop this form of stress. Even in unhappy marriages it can happen the same thing.

Stress is a state of physical and emotional tension that can be induced by any situation that requires extra effort. In fact, it is for us a signal that is activated when โ€œdi more โ€orโ€œ one action โ€.

There are those who can develop it through negative thoughts oriented to the future (worries) or with the judgment of themselves (tendency to be bad with themselves). But there are many other ways that can stimulate stress, let's analyze the phases.

We must distinguish two important phases of stress:

1-Phase of disturbance

In this phase there is an external element that causes the stress.

2-Phase of Anxiety

This phase is secondary to stress and occurs in the absence of the exterior element. It happens exactly after the disturbance is gone.

Analyzing them it is possible to understand in as many cases can develop.

Stress dermatitis

(Work-related stress is also related stress urticaria)

Stress dermatitis is not easy to deal with identify, because it requires to discard others possibility before being discovered. Inflammation of the skin, itching and redness are in fact common in all types of dermatitis. In fact, dermatitis can help also the appearance of "pimples" on the face in age adult. It is a stress reliever on the skin. It acts like something that "holds" or "vents" it stress at that point. It can hit practically the whole body from the face to the feet and is not to be confused with allergies that may seem similar.

How to decrease it.

Stress, among the many causes it can have, is also caused by beliefs that induce it. Habits not expressed, lack of time for themselves, lack of activity physical, judgment of oneself or others, or conscious rejection unconscious of oneself and others, non-acceptance of certain situations, people or not accepting each other. In a manner indirect can also be associated with food which leads to non-acceptance of oneself or disliking oneself. However, the easily applicable solutions to reduce it are:
