You must have a lot of stress in your life!
A common misconception a lot of people have about IBD is that stress makes them worse. The CDC declares no scientific evidence that stress or tension increase a person’s risk to acquire Crohn’s disease or UC. However, there are direct links between stress and increased frequency, duration, and severity of IBD symptoms. People who meditate or relax through guided visuals or yoga often claim a decrease in the symptoms, especially in the areas of pain management and improvements to sleep habits.
