Address Stress for Immunity & Longevity

From eNewsletter 9/19/2022

DID YOU KNOW that proton pump inhibitors, which block stomach acid and come in prescription (i.e omeprazole) and nonprescription forms (i.e Priolsec), may increase blood levels of some statins, potentially raising the risk for side effects, including blood sugar imbalances, memory loss, and liver, muscle and kidney damage?

If you are taking both drugs, you may want to discuss this with your physician.

Address Stress for Immunity, Longevity

Steve: If you were on the fence about the effect stress has on your body, let the following remove any shred of doubt.

A huge study from The Lancet describes mortality risk of subjects with stress-related disorders versus subjects without disorders, including siblings. The authors found those with stress-related disorders had an increased risk of all-cause mortality and multiple cause-specific mortality. The excess mortality attributable to unnatural causes (i.e., suicide) and potentially avoidable causes (i.e., chronic inflammatory-related disorders) highlights the importance of emphasizing support for stress-related disorders.

Another study from Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences purports that stress in the form of traumatic events, job strain, and everyday stressors accelerates aging of the immune system, potentially increasing a person’s risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and illness from infections such as COVID-19.

As you age, your immune system naturally begins a downgrade, a condition called immunosenescence. With advanced age, a person’s immune profile weakens, and includes too many worn-out white blood cells circulating and too few fresh, “naive” white blood cells ready to take on new invaders. Adding undo stress to this process accelerates immunosenescence.

Just as you need to individualize your eating your style, my expertise allows me to help you find the stress management style that works best for you.
