We observed the mental state of patients within 3 months after surgery. According to the results their observations were divided into 4 groups. Unrecognized disease These people did not believe that they have cancer, they have not seen the emotional fluctuations. Having a fighting spirit they always had the spirit to fight cancer, were optimistic, read books about cancer and were ready to do everything to oppose him effectively. Controlling yourself accepting their diagnosis, they first fell in spirit, but then tried not to think about the disease and continued to lead a normal life. When they are desperate to have stated a diagnosis, they fell into despair, have lost the will to live, and for controlling the disease were strong emotion.
80% of people of "unrecognized disease" which had a lot of emotional fluctuations and the same percentage of people, "Having the fighting spirit" – survived. In the group of "control himself" survived 70% of people, about half of them cancer re-emerged. And in the "Desperate" upwards of 80% of patients. Thus, even in patients with a depression lowers the immune system. Mental turmoil of daily life, less shocking than the death of a spouse or when we learn that we have cancer, have a surprisingly strong influence on the physical body. Gloom and cell killers in St. Marianna Medical University conducted a study of the effect of final examinations for the health of students.
Final exams cause great anxiety among the students and mental stress. Was measured the activity of natural killer cells in the middle of exams and two weeks after graduation. The result – the activity of natural killer cells significantly decreased during exams, but after two weeks after the exams, it has increased in almost all. However, based only on these data, it is unclear whether this was the influence of fatigue when preparing for exams or mental stress.
