When Does Stress Cause Heart Disease?

By January 6, 2014

Follow me on:

Yes, stress can help to produce heart disease - but not all stress, and not in all people.  For stress to be harmful to your heart, you've got to have the "right" kind of stress, and you've got to react to it in the "right" way. Learn about what kind of stress to avoid, and how to handle it when you cannot avoid it.

Thank you for explaining the effects of stress on the heart. It’s much clearer to me now and easy to understand. Considering the stress I’ve been under the past couple of weeks (death in the family, grandson needing surgery on his spinal cord, my mom and her emotional instability, travel in snow storms, brush fire, power outages, etc.) it’s good to know I’ll probably be OK. During all of this all I could do was giggle because it was so absurd.
