Dumitru Constantin Dulcan: “A five-minute rage can block the immune system for five hours.” How we deal with stress

The neurologist and psychiatrist, author of a large number of monographs, treatises, papers and books of great scientific value, university professor Dr. Dumitru Constantin Dulcan is of the opinion that stress profoundly affects our emotional state.

Stress reduces life expectancy

“Stress is the body’s reaction to a trauma that can be physical, mental, emotional. Stress in the body has an effect on three essential structural elements: the neuron, the DNA, ie the genetic substrate of the body, and the immune system. As for the neuron, stress blocks neurogenesis, the formation of new neurons or the formation of new connections.

And here in our century we are talking about an increasing frequency, an increasing morbidity of Alzheimer’s disease, and therefore the loss of intellectual capacity. On deoxyribonucleic acid, so on the genetic substrate: chromosomes have some proteins at their ends with a protective role, they are called telomeres.

Stress acts on these telomeres, which it shortens. More precisely, with each cell division, the telomeres shorten, the stress acts on them, so it simply reduces the longevity, the duration of life “, explained prof. Dulcan.

How we deal with stress. Dumitru Constantin Dulcan: It is essential not to get emotionally involved in a negative phenomenon

Dumitru Constantin Dulcan is of the opinion that the modern world and the context in which we live put us under great stress. And we must know how to defend ourselves, through a continuous self-education and a detachment from everything that stresses us.

“It is essential not to get involved. Emotional involvement in a negative phenomenon, in a TV news, etc. It consumes a lot of your energy. You have to defend yourself by trying to detach yourself, that means self-education. Know something about stress protection techniques and, of course, avoid it.

For example: you go to your boss and, if you know that he will make a scandal of you, already anticipate, try to be as indifferent as possible, put a dam. It’s one of the defense techniques. Of course, you can’t completely avoid stress, because we live in a world where we don’t want to, we also have stress. Each of us gets sick, someone dies. We die friends, we die from family, these are stresses that are inevitable, they are part of our biology.

Obviously, these are situations in which you cannot remain indifferent. Someone is dying, you can’t laugh, it’s abnormal, these are things related to the naturalness of things, that’s not what we’re talking about. But I’m talking about the other cases, especially the stress of watching the negative news, which someone pours down our throats for free, only for some to gain an audience.

I think society should manage stress and there are many means. I strongly believe: the condition is that the people who lead us have some notions of social psychology, so now they have to have notions of economic philosophy “, said Dumitru Constantin Dulcan, according to adevarul.ro.

Dumitru Constantin Dulcan: A five-minute rage can block the immune system for five hours

Without knowing it, we get sick on our own. An upset, anger or rage can block our immune system for hours.

“On the immune system, stress, anger, anger for five minutes can block the cells of the immune system for up to five to six hours. The immune system is the system of cells and organs that produce lymphocytes. They protect us from viruses and bacteria and do their job by constantly circulating in the body.

For example, dying cells need to be removed. And in the body there are killer or killer lymphoid cells, which encompass these dying cells, because otherwise they can attach to a place, create inflammation and from here we can wake up with all sorts of diseases, including cancer. Therefore, these cells medically called “NK” are extremely useful, they must constantly circulate in the body in order to be able to protect us against all those substances that are foreign to the body. Stress disturbs their efficiency “, underlined the neurologist Dumitru Constantin Dulcan.
