Emotional Stress

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing

Dr. Maté, MD, teaches that emotional stress is a major cause of physical illness, from cancer to autoimmune conditions and many other chronic diseases.

The brain and body systems that process emotions are intimately connected with the hormonal apparatus, the nervous system, and in particular the immune system.

This is why it is imperative that we do not shut down our emotions, but learn to process them in a healthy and productive way.
