Stress is a common condition that contributes to illness in a significant way.  It can disrupt our sleep, energy, work performance, family life, social engagement, healing, and our emotional and physical well being.  It weakens our immune system, makes us more susceptible to diseases, and can worsen our medical conditions.  Stress can cause many different symptoms both physically and emotionally. It is important to recognize these symptoms early, and to discuss them with your Physician if you think you are experiencing stress.
