Sometimes stress can cause serious illness. Take a look at the book by Lawrence LeShan, You Can Fight For Your Life about turning on the immune system after counseling discovers the source of overwhelming stress, causing terminal cancer to go into remission. Enough talking will let feelings come out. I like the meditation approach myself because it also allows access to the origin of stress by letting meditation put the intellect “to sleep”, to let feelings bubble up past the intellectual screen that is usually filters or suppresses those feelings. Find a way to work out a solution to the stress, the feelings, and realize the illness is not worth embracing the stress.

It's a piece of advice that yogis have given for thousands of years: take a deep breath and relax. Watch the tension melt from your muscles and all your niggling worries vanish. Somehow we all know that relaxation is good for us. Now the hard science has caught up – for a comprehensive scientific study showing that deep relaxation changes our bodies on a genetic level has just been published.
