How Depression Harms Your Health
Effect of Depression #2: Lowering immune power
Dr. Suneasra – GP, Mumbai says – many times depression can weaken the strength of your immune system, and bring you closer to cold and flu. The lowering of immune system takes place as stress hormones are released in the body, and when these hormones stay in your body for a long time, they can repress your immune system. He further adds – nowadays people are suffering with cold and flu more frequently due to living a stressful and depressed life.
