Emotions have been connected to the heart throughout the ages, yet they have been largely discounted as playing an important role in heart disease. There is mounting evidence that anxiety, anger, depression, and stress play significant contributing roles in cardiac diseases. These emotional states, coronary artery disease, and heart failure have physiology consistent with the ongoing stress response.
It is likely that stress plays an initiating or exacerbating role in the majority of DISEASE processes. The pathways of these processes are the subject of intense research.
Respiras Breathing is playing an important role in addressing stress from the aspect of physiology, science, research and occupational adaptation.
