Medical research provides increasing evidence that a significant amount of physical illness is stress-related. When a physician rules out medical explanations, stress may be the cause. Stress, which may be acute or chronic, frequently exacerbates physical and emotional problems. If unattended, stress weakens one's coping ability, and one often experiences a combination of emotional, physical, and/or behavioral symptoms.
