Stress can affect people in different ways, and the prolonged effects of negative stress on the body can be harmful for health. Long-term stress is associated with conditions like high blood pressure, headaches, depression, tense muscles and poor digestion.

The body reacts to stress by releasing hormones and neurotransmitters which interact with cells in the immune system. These include adrenalin and cortisol, which when present in the body over a long time, can release anti-inflammatories, weakening the immune system and making us more prone to illness. Furthermore, the stomach produces more acid which can inflame the stomach lining and limit our absorption of nutrients. Stress also shortens the time it takes for food to pass through the digestive system, meaning again, fewer nutrients are absorbed.
