Mind-Body can influence immune system and reduce stress in mesothelioma patients
An illness like mesothelioma causes stress and other emotions that need to be managed because there is considerable evidence that emotional traits, both negative and positive, influence people's susceptibility to infection.
Following systematic exposure to a respiratory virus in the laboratory, individuals who report higher levels of stress or negative moods have been shown to develop more severe illness than those who report less stress or more positive moods.
Recent studies suggest that the tendency to report positive, as opposed to negative, emotions may be associated with greater resistance to objectively verified colds.
These laboratory studies are supported by longitudinal studies pointing to associations between psychological or emotional traits and the incidence of respiratory infections.This information is courtesy of the National Institutes of Health
