Severe Stress May Increase Risks For Autoimmune Disease

Hi! I’m Dr William Norlin. I’m your Mpls/St. Paul Chiropractor and your source of everything health. I’d like to share with you a great article I found honoring Stress Awareness Month by looking at how severe stress may increase your risk for developing an autoimmune disease.If you have any questions about this information, or anything else that is a health goal or challenge for you or someone you may know, feel free to give me a call at 612 724-4647.

Your body’s immune system is your natural defense protection from disease and infection.

Autoimmune diseases turn your body’s defense system against itself by attacking healthy cells.

And by the way, stick with me through this video to the end, and I’ll direct you to a source for other great articles about health related topics.

Researchers found stress to be linked with a 36% greater risk of developing 41 autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease and celiac disease.

It is also important to look at the impact stress has on lifestyle.

People who have been through severely stressful circumstances may be more likely to smoke, get less sleep or have increased drug and/or alcohol use – all being linked to an increased risk of certain autoimmune diseases.

Here are some proactive steps you can take to reduce the impact stress has on your immune system:
Eat a diet high in antioxidant-rich foods like fruit, vegetables, dark chocolate, and green tea.
Get daily physical exercise.
Start a daily meditation practice.
Get plenty of sleep.
