Heal Your Body With Dr. Jamie Gilliam 

There is an intricate connection between stress and disease. This relationship operates bidirectionally, with stress causing disease and disease causing stress. In this Heal Your Body episode, Dr. Jamie Gilliam discusses how the experiences of stress can both contribute to the onset and progression of disease and how disease can generate significant stress responses.

Dr. Jamie Gilliam unveils the profound impact of stress as a precursor to various diseases, exploring the physiological mechanisms through which chronic stress weakens the immune system, disrupts hormonal balance, and triggers inflammatory responses. She uncovers how stress acts as a catalyst for conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune disorders, gastrointestinal problems, and mental health ailments. Dr. Jamie also explains how these physical conditions and many others can also be the precursor to stress and mental health conditions. She illustrates how managing stress can serve as a pivotal factor in preventing and mitigating the development of these illnesses.

This episode discussion extends to how the experience of coping with disease and chronic health conditions can induce significant stress. Join Dr. Jamie as she examines the emotional, psychological, and physiological toll that illness takes on individuals, contributing to heightened stress levels, anxiety, depression, and reduced quality of life.
