Can being sad make you actually sick?

Yes, whenever you talk about the body’s response to stress, it is best to start with the HPA axis! That’s hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, or master glands of stress and how they rule the body and the world! The body shunts blood away from the digestive system and to our heart and large muscles! Have a blessed day ahead! Any Suggestions here?

    Obviously anything that can affect the brain can affect what the brain controls–which is pretty much anything that goes on in your body! Depression has been shown to alter brain activity; loss of appetite is a common symptom! Obviously, sudden drastic changes to your diet can cause further health complications! Moreover, inability to sleep in another common symptom which can have a devastating affect on the brain and body! A weakened immune system is a typical health complication that can arise from inadequate sleep!Typically, stories of dying from a broken heart are of elderly couples! It is not uncommon for an elderly person to pass on within a few months of their spouses passing!
