Suffering is disease and contentment is good health. This only points out the profound connection between our body and mind. Health is a biological equilibrium that exists within our bodies. A person with a disturbed mind and soul cannot possess a healthy body. Health is a reflection of physical, mental, spiritual, and economic well-being. Stress in today’s society is omnipresent. It is the manner in which a person reacts to stress that makes all the difference to health. Those who handle stress in a detached manner are the ones who are least affected by it. In other words, just `stay cool’ when under stress’. When you let stress get the better of you it can cause disease. Psychological stress activates the adrenal glands to discharge stress hormones (cortisol) which help us survive the stress but at the cost of our health. It is now a well-known fact that stress has a strong influence on both our mental and physical health. Stress affects almost all our body systems. When a person is exposed to stress over a period of time, he can develop high blood pressure, stomach ulcers, cancer, immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, depression etc.

Arthritis is a rheumatic disease that plagues most people beyond the age of fifty. Arthritis can be really difficult to live with, as the pain is so unbearable, it practically immobilizes the person. Literally speaking, arthritis is an inflammation of the joints that causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. It refers to a number of disorders such as osteoarthritis, gout, ankylosis spondylitis, systemic lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
