While the effects of stress may seem like quackery, there are countless studies over the years that have studied the

numerous ways stress can damage the body. For example, the body releases cortisol, a steroid, in response to stress.

Cortisol has been shown to increase blood sugar levels while suppressing the immune system.

Yoga and meditation done regularly will strengthen your body and mind. There are also many other very easy methods for combating stress and its negative effects that can be done as part of our daily routines.

Dr. Eliaz believes that simple techniques like yoga or meditation can greatly improve a cancer patient’s quality of life and response to treatment. Spending time with loved ones and engaging in hobbies or activities can also reduce stress for cancer patients. Even taking a minute out for deep breathing can go a long way for your overall mood and health.
