Abstract

Stress reduction interventions can have a positive therapeutic effect in autoimmune disease patients. Physicians and patients must recognize the potential for stress to impact autoimmune diseases and how stress management should be considered in a multidimensional treatment approach. This article evaluates the effects of stress as a trigger and a modulator, and stress reduction as a treatment option in rheumatoid arthritis.
