Chronic stress can wreak havoc on the mind and body. Psychological stress is associated with greater risk for depression along with contributing factor to a number of other diseases. Recent research at Carnegie-Mellon University has demonstrated a key link to stress and inflammation. Stress alters the effectiveness of the hormone cortisol in regulating the inflammatory response where it decreases tissue sensitivity to cortisol. Specifically, immune cells become insensitive to cortisol's regulatory effect. As a result, inflammation may be more prevalent leading to the progression of many diseases.
