Effects of Chronic Stress on the Immune System

Medical research estimates as much as 90 percent of illness and disease is stress-related

Effects of Chronic Stress on the Immune System

… wow, that sentence alone sums up the effects of chronic stress on the immune system. Doesn’t it?

Everyone differs in what is stressful or potentially stressful. What for one person might seem to be a catastrophic event may be a minor setback for another.

It’s important to remember that stress is a natural part of your life. You will thrive on certain amounts, but too much or too little stress will limit your effectiveness.

High blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and heart disease have been linked to stress factors. Other stress-related ailments include ulcers, allergies, asthma, and migraine headaches.

Effects of Chronic Stress on the Immune System

  • increased sympathetic activity decreases cellular immunity
  • immune cells migrate to different parts of the body and can worsen autoimmune and allergic conditions
  • over time, the positive acute mobilisation of immune cells in response to a challenge is suppressed.

Reference: McEwan BS. Protective and Damaging effects of stress mediators. New England Journal of Medicine. 1983;338(3):171-179

When stressed, your body creates extra energy to protect itself. This additional energy cannot be destroyed. If not used, this creates a suppression of the natural positive acute mobilisation of immune cells to the point of challenge – an imbalance within your system.

Most health professionals agree stress can be a contributing factor in making existing medical problems worse.

Chronic stress affects the immune system by increasing sympathetic activity and decreasing cellular immunity.

Immune cells migrate to different parts of the body and can worsen autoimmune and allergic conditions.

Learn to meditate, learn how to cope with stress

Our immune system weakens, we tend to be more reactive (rather than responsive), more guarded, defensive (crying over spilt milk). And most importantly – our quality of life, our life satisfaction is lowered.

Vedic Meditation is one of the most powerful techniques available for reducing stress and anxiety. As a result, you no longer store as much stress and tension in your body. This allows you to start responding to life with a positive attitude – relaxed, resilient and care-free. It is also one of the easiest to learn and simplest to practice.
