Originally posted by DtimeStress in humans releases cortisol, which is needed by the body in small quantities but the body reacts to stress by secreting more cortisol which among other things, effects ones memory, forgetting stuff like where is my purse, what did I do with that friggin remote, etc. Also effecting the immune system, suppressing its function so like you say, a happy person is a healthier person.
True to some points.
but, stress also changes the blood and moculer structure.
The stress levels in a person would make them more problematic to illness.
[Example: a person who is happy with their life has less illness than a perosn who is unhappy with their life]
Would you say this is a fair statement? what are your thoughts on this?
