Your : Your question is an important one as it calls for greater understanding of very fundamental aspects of how diseases originate and progress, and the role of stress in disease. Austrian-born endocrinologist hans selye (hans hugo bruno selye, 1907 â€” 1982) did important scientific work on the response of an organism to stress. The term general adaptation syndrome (gas) - a theory of stress - has originated from his work. According to gas, stress is a non-specific response of the body a stimulus. There are three stages of gas: alarm, resistance and exhaustion. In the alarm stage, a hormone adrenaline is produced in order to bring about the "fight-or-flight" response. In the resistance stage, if the stressor persists, the body attempts to cope with the stress. However, the body cannot maintain this stage indefinitely and its resources become gradually depleted. In that case, the exhaustion stage ensues. In this final stage all of the body's resources are depleted and its functions become decompensated giving rise to diseases such as ulcers, depression, diabetes or cardiovascular problems. Obviously, in order to avoid the stress-associated illnesses, it would be necessary to limit the extent and duration of stressors on our organism, or "slow down", something that you correctly pointed out in your question. I posted a link below to a wikipedia article on hans selye and his theory of stress. ...Read more
