Yes: Chronic stress is believed to accelerate biologic aging. Stress has adverse effects on immune system function and how we respond to hidden inflammation. I suggest you try to cope with your stress naturally with more exercise, a healthy diet, and meditation. Counseling may also help. I am available to offer you counseling on HealthTap if you desire. Best of luck with your health!
