Expat Health Insurance News: Stress 'can cause physical and mental harm'

Expatriates trying to avoid claiming on international health insurance policies should try to ensure they do not feel stressed about issues such as money, as this can cause medical problems.

Mypartnerisdepressed.com life coach and hypnotherapist Caroline Carr claimed this emotion "sends toxins to the liver".

Ailments such as anxiety disorders, depression and insomnia can occur when this happens, alongside "all sorts of really unpleasant physical symptoms", she explained.

If a person is feeling stressed, the expert noted their body has many physiological responses, including an increase in heartbeat, a "general squeezing and tensing" and a mental focus on what is perceived to be a threat.

Many people feel this emotion the majority of the time and "the repercussions are not good" if this is the case, Ms Carr declared.

Exercise can be a useful remedy for people undergoing anxiety or depression, mindfulness-based Neuro Linguistic Programming practitioner and author of Transforming Stress to Success Michelle Clemmons recently argued.
