    Hi Everyone,

    I thought the forum would be interested in my latest podcast. This week's topic is the relationship between stress and illness.

    http://www.thehealthymind.com/2012/08/08/stress-and-illness-how-anxiety-attacks-your-body/

    I discuss recent mind-body research as well as the latest, large-scale study that looked at the effect of anxiety and depression on life expectancy. Here is an article explaining the results of that study:

    I think it is important to continue to highlight the growing research on the relationship between stress (which are really our thoughts and emotions) and physical illness. The mind-body relationship is very real. And science is proving that more and more every day.

    I hope you find the information helpful. Don't ever doubt your strength!

    Kindly,
    Dr. Zafirides

    Thanks, I'll watch these.

    I really enjoyed your podcast that talked about why people are angry and that it might not be what we think; the example of how your wife calling your name in the store being a trigger to a childhood memory of your mom calling you (and embarrasing you!) was so interesting. It really is amazing how childhood incidents stay with us!

    Thanks for all your posts! :)
