Topic: Management of stress-induced immune imbalance in working professionals by holistic lifestyle
Abstract: ‘Stress isn’t always bad’. But excessive stress is a causative factor of various physical and mental imbalances. Young corporate employees and other corporate professionals are highly stressed by increased work pressure and disturbed work-life balance.
The body starts to show various signals, but increased workload and negligence makes it difficult to recognize them or even pay heed to them. One cannot control everything at work but what they can control is what they put in their mind and belly. The discussion will be focused on how stress creates a disturbance in overall being of an individual and gradually disables the antigen fighting capability in addition to weakening the digestive fire “Agni”.
It will also focus on how a person with different Ayurvedic biological composition should manage acute and chronic stress, along with various easy to practice lifestyle and dietary modifications.
