Everyday stress affects many aspects of your life

Stress plays a major factor in your health, resistance to illness, productivity and well-being.

The more stress in your life the greater the chance your health will suffer. Based on scientific research, physicians are increasingly recognizing the key role played by stress in many of the patients they see.

We also recognize that many medical conditions can affect your emotional state. Serious or chronic physical illness often makes people anxious and depressed. Since these mood states negatively affect physical health, a vicious cycle can develop.

Medical problems related to or worsened by stress include:

  • Hypertension and Heart Disease
  • Cancer
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Dermatological Problems
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic Pain and Headache
  • Sexual Dysfunctions
  • Chronic Illness and Disability
  • Respiratory Problems
