Apr 23, 2007 NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - The stress of unemployment may dampen healthy people's immune system function but the good news is that finding a job can restore its fighting power, according to a new study.

Past research has linked chronic stress to impaired immune function and a higher risk of infection and other illness. But little is known about what happens to the immune system when the stress subsides.

From experience when 'Stress' subsides--all systems function more effectively--how can that not be known?

I am convinced that walking and getting outside--gardening, sports --any activity that is good for cardiovascular system --is the Rx for depression/stress.

It works for me.

If you have stress/depression--get a dog and get walking. Pets are great for reducing stress. Studies have been done to 'Prove' that having a pet can lower blood pressure and all that.

Just talking to 'Josh', my lhasa apso--always puts me in a better mood--he is so cute and funny --just no time to have stress or be depressed.
