Stress is one of the factors that trigger various diseases throughout the body. It causes imbalances in the most important functions, such as immunity. Here are the harmful effects of stress on the immune system and how you can reduce them!
Dumitru Constantin Dulcan, a famous Romanian professor, doctor and neurologist, explains the harmful effects of stress on the immune system, exclusively for truth. Stress affects 3 of the most important structural elements: neurons, DNA and the immune system.
The immune system is essential for human health and survival. This is the natural barrier that protects the body from harmful pathogens and also ensures its overall health. Unfortunately, it can be severely affected by stress, diminishing its normal functions and leaving the body vulnerable to disease and infection.
What are the harmful effects of stress on the immune system?
“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.
On the immune system – a 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 lymphatic 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 “, explains Dumitru Constantin Dulcan, neurologist, according to Adevărul.
To reduce the negative effects that stress has on the body, it is important to manage your emotions and thoughts. In other words, it is essential to filter the importance of events and reduce the negative effects they can have on the psyche. Emotions are closely related to the body, producing visible physical effects, if they are not in harmony.
“It simply came to our notice then. Emotional involvement in a negative phenomenon, in a TV news, etc. It consumes a lot of your energy. You have to defend yourself trying to detach yourself, that means self-education, to know something about stress protection techniques and, of course, to avoid it “, adds the neurologist.
