Negative Effect of physical and psychological stress on the immune system

Rate this:

Psycho+ Neuro+ Immunology = (PNI) Psychoneuroimmunology is a fast growing field. It studies the relationship between our CNS – the central nervous system and our immune system. Now, its clearly found that physical and emotional stress can have a serious effect on our immune system. 

The effects of stress on the immune system  – Researches show that  under normal circumstances, our body secretes hormones to an infection or injury to help destroy germs or to repair body tissues. But In the condition of physically or emotional stress, our body releases certain hormones which negatively impacts our immune system. These hormones can bind to specific receptors and signal the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines*. it is evident that stress creates an internal or external force that threatens to disrupt the homeostatic balance of our body. Conversely, good mental health plays an important role in strengthening our immune system. 

*(A cytokine is a small protein that is released by cells, especially those in our immune system. There are many types of cytokines, but the ones that are generally stimulated by stress are called pro-inflammatory cytokines। ).

We are rubies

We are all Spiritual beings
having a physical experience.

We are rubies
in the midst of granite.

We are imbued with
resplendent majesty but

We insist on
remaining shriveled
and withered in our prison of dust.

Why not become fresh
from the gentleness of the heart-spring?

Why not laugh…
like a rose?

Why not spread
perfume?

❤ Rumi

A life without love

A life without love is a waste.

“Should I look for spiritual love, or material, or physical love?”

Don’t ask yourself this question.

Discrimination leads to discrimination.

Love doesn’t need any name, category or definition.

Love is a world itself.

Either you are in, at the center, or you are out, yearning.

❤ Shams of Tabriz 

 

Shams-i-Tabrīzī / Shams al-Din Mohammad was   spiritual instructor of Mewlānā Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhi / Rumi.

Bhagavad Gita – “Song of the God”

Perform your prescribed duty,

for action is better than inaction.

A man cannot even maintain

his physical body without work.

To Take initiative

Instead of antiquated notions of physical daring,

courage is much more about making small choices

to take initiative even

when we are experiencing anxiety and facing risk.
