The Effects of Stress on the Immune System and How Reflexology Helps

Did you know that your immune system is linked to your stress level? Think back to a time when you were really sick. What was going on in your life then? Can you make a connection between your stress level and your health? Were you constantly on the go, overly worried, trying to meet a deadline, going through a major change? Were you feeling totally “stressed out”? If so, your body perceived this as a threat to its well-being and activated your sympathetic nervous system, or your “fight or flight” response. When the sympathetic nervous system is activated, it is preparing the body to either fight or flee danger. This happens whether the danger is perceived or is an actual real threat to you
