According to CBS 8 people’s emotional response to challenges may affect how their body reacts to stress, according to a new study.
To reach that conclusion, researchers from the University of Pittsburgh had individuals make a speech in a laboratory in front of a video camera and a panel of judges. The participants’ physical responses were monitored during the speech, and they were later asked about the emotions they felt while delivering the speech.
Those who reported high levels of anger and anxiety after their speech had greater increases in a marker of inflammation called interleukin-6, compared with those who remained relatively calm.
The findings may explain why some people with high levels of stress experience chronic health problems, the researchers said.
The study is published in the February issue of the journal Brain, Behavior, and Immunity.
Dr. Stuart Kincaid has advised his patients for a long time to be mindful of stress and the toll that it takes on one’s appearance. Obviously, if stress can make you sick, it can also make you look a great deal older than your real age. This can have a rippling effect as patients looking in the mirror see signs of aging that are unflattering. For patients who are apprehensive about considering a full surgical facelift, Sculptra cosmetic is an excellent alternative. Over a series of injectable treatments patients gradually see a more plump and natural looking face .Sculptra actually causes the body to grow its own collagen so that the facial filler is actually from the patient’s own body. Once the patient has removed the wrinkles it is imperative that they also remove the stress.
