There are projects due for work, decisions to make for your family, unresolved arguments, stress about money and finances, traffic jams, and not to mention what little time you do actually have left, you worry about your health.
Yet your stress levels are the little-known cause of most chronic diseases − including cancer.
Disease feeds off stress.
Cancer is no different, the more stress you experience creates a surge of a survival hormone. This hormone controls the ‘fight’ or ‘flight’ instinct in your body. It’s called cortisol.
A long time we needed this hormone to keep us safe and secure. But since you usually don’t need to run from wild animals or do huge amounts of physical labor, you don’t need this hormone constantly running unchecked through your body.
