Researchers are uncovering why stress has becomes the number 1 silent killer.

According to Prof Carolyn Aldwin, director of the Centre for Healthy Ageing Research at Oregon State University - she said that the increased level of stress hormones can affect our immune system, and can lead to chronic inflammation, a condition associated with a host of serious illnesses including cancer. 

Stress and AutoImmune Disorders

When the stress hormones keep increasing, they will start to affect the immune system which can cause the system to break down one day.  

When that happens, the disordered immune system will begin to attack healthy tissues which result in chronic inflammation. A disordered immune system can no longer differentiate healthy tissues from bacteria, viruses or cancer cells.

And hundreds of diseases can be developed with Autoimmune Disorders.

Adequate Sleep Strengthen Immune System

According to Mayo Clinic, your immune system starts doing its jobs when you are sleeping. During sleep, the immune system will produce a protein called cytokines which help to promote sleep, heal infection or inflammation. 

Inadequate sleep decreases production of cytokines and infection-fighting antibodies ~ resulted to a compromised immune system.
