“Stress has well-defined negative effects on the immune system and our ability to fight infections and cancer. This happens at many levels, but one effect of stress is to increase levels of cortisol, which impairs the function of our lymphocytes, key soldiers of our immune system. The good news is that efforts to manage and alleviate stress, through mindfulness, meditation, and exercise can reverse these negative effects and promote healthy immune responses.”
