We live in the age of “STRESS“. Indian traditions identify the present times as “KALI YUGA”.The accelerated tempo of life brings forth stimuli of high velocity of action, magnitude and impact that they stimulate a chain of psycho-physical reactions strong enough to cause manifest effects in the human body. The impact of modern living has a significant bearing on the genesis of stress-associated declines in health. It is important to understand the phenomenon of ‘stress’ and resist its influence to defend our existence.
