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.
