San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
To mark National Stress Awareness Month, which occurs every April, the Editorial Board of Living with a Disability magazine has published an important new article on the serious – yet not well known and even less understood – connection between chronic stress and mental illness.
Citing a recent brain study by researchers at the University of California at Berkley, Living with a Disability’s new article highlights how patients suffering from chronic stress were found to produce excess myelin, which interfered with their brain’s ability efficiently and effectively communicate at a cellular level, and could lead to anxiety and mood disorders down the road.
“Our goal at Living with a Disability Magazine is to help individuals with various disabling medical conditions live life to the fullest,” commented the magazine’s associate publisher Joshua C. Eyestone. “And as part of this commitment, we want people to learn the facts about chronic stress and mental illness, so they can speak with their doctor or other member of their health care team to get the support, advice and, if necessary, treatment they need.”
