Stress

In western medicine, stress symptoms are produced as a result of a structure, system, or organism being acted on by forces that disrupt equilibrium or produce strain. In health care, the term denotes the physical and psychological forces that are experienced by individuals in daily life such as fear, anxiety, physical strain, and many other factors. When stress occurs in large quantities that the system cannot handle in a healthy way, it produces pathological changes in the body and thus disease is born.
