Stress causes inflammation, dysregulation of the immune system, raises blood sugar, suppresses healing T cells and natural killer cells. But can it lead to cancer? Brandon LaGreca, author of "Cancer, Stress & Mindset," tackles that question today. Brandon is a licensed acupuncturist who, in 2015, was diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He achieved full remission eight months later without the use of chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery.
Today he discusses how stress is often overlooked as a contributing factor, if not a driving force, that can indeed lead to cancer.
He covers what stress does to us biologically and psychologically, and he offers techniques for mitigating its effect, like vagus nerve activation, journaling, prioritizing sleep, and more. His very practical tips can help us all improve our mindset and build greater resilience, whatever the state of our general health.
