Millions of people throughout the world suffer from neurodegenerative diseases. Nerve cells in the brain and peripheral nervous system lose function over time and eventually die in neurodegenerative conditions. Although therapies may alleviate some of the physical or mental symptoms associated with neurodegenerative disorders, there are presently no known cures or ways to decrease disease development. The risk of developing a neurodegenerative disease rises considerably as one gets older. This predicament necessitates a greater understanding of what causes neurodegenerative disorders and the development of innovative treatment and preventative strategies.
Chronic stress is known to cause an imbalanced stress response, which can lead to the development of neuro degenerative disorders like Alzheimer's (AD). Epidemiological research demonstrates that long-term exposure to stress, whether from daily life, profession, trauma, or other life events, increases the incidence of dementia disorders like Alzheimer's disease.
