Intuitively we all know stress is bad for us. We schedule times to relax get massages, call our friends an d loved ones to chat the stress away. But did you know that the benefit of a stress free life goes beyond mental comfort? The body is a machine that works well together. If one part is misaligned sooner or later, it will affect the rest of the body. So if the mind, the main control panel, is boggled and under duress, the body will soon follow. Cancer thrives under these conditions. Chemicals are released into the body that aids the development of cancer cells under situations of prolonged and continuous stress.
