Affective Deprivation Disorder - Affective Immunology

I just thought I would share. In my working world, researching is/was a big part of my work, it’s very difficult for me to shut that part off especially living what I’m living. So for those who have an interest, I thought I would share.

If I take the term that was recently identified for us “Affective Deprivation Disorder” , I for one can admit I have some of those issues, anxiety as an example, if you search the word ‘affective’ and start adding different words to it, it’s amazing what you come across.

I found this awesome scientific site in the Uk that publishes all their research papers for other scientist but they also make their articles/papers available for all to read. I had to share.

Affective Immunology. How emotions interplays with our immune system, in reality all our internal body systems are all inter-connected. You feel stressed, you hurt inside, your body keeps the score, when your body says no (published books)

This is but one article: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/317300803_Affective_immunology_Where_emotions_and_the_immune_response_converge

Our environments can play havoc on us too. Articles on that as well.  All writers, based on the ones I have read so far, are all scientists:

All sorts of topics are discussed and most offer some helpful knowledge that can help us all heal in better and effective ways.  Just wanted to share.
