It is commonly accepted that stress is a significant part of the modern world. Whether we are subjected to greater stresses than our cavemen forebears or even our grandparents may be a matter of debate. However, we all do have stress in our daily lives and it is also realistic to recognize that the stress levels wax and wane depending on life’s circumstances and our responses to them over time. It is unrealistic to assume that these stresses do not produce significant effects on the mental and physiological processes of the body and thereby either contribute to or cause outright disease.
