On this topic, Dr. Kalish says: “When you have a stressful situation arise, cortisol (your fight or flight hormone) kicks in. The first thing that happens when cortisol goes up is the immune response in the gut starts to fall apart. Once your gut is compromised, it’s a steady snowball effect until you develop a full-blown autoimmune disease. If you think back to when you first started noticing that you weren’t feeling quite right, there is very often an emotionally stressful event that took place around or slightly before that time.”
