Stress Health Center

Everyone will deal with stress in their life. It is a normal and expected response, and can be of great benefit when dealt with in a healthy and productive manner. Living with continuous stress, however, is detrimental to mental and physical health. Living with continued stress can increase the risk of: 

  • hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • heart disease
  • increased susceptibility to illness and infection
  • increased susceptibility to pain and headache
  • increased risk of developing diabetes

Talk to your doctor about how to reduce the risk of developing these conditions.
