Cure the Common Cold
A recent study in the Journal of American
Psychological Association, describes how short-term stresses like
speaking in public, it turns out, can boost your immune system
helping you to fight the common cold.
Gregory Miller and Suzanne Segerstrom discovered that modern stresses
(such as public speaking) prompt complex reactions beyond the simple
fight or flight response, the primordial motivator that sends your
heart racing and pumps up your blood pressure. In particular, stress
triggers a variety of changes in the immune system, some beneficial.
test subjects were asked to speak in public or do mental math in
the lab, the tasks tended to mobilize their fast -acting immune
response -- the body's all -purpose defense system for fending off
infection and healing wounds.
