My SO and I are currently drinking lots of holy basil tea. We deal with constant stress and it has really been a boon. On one hand I know that chronic stress is bad and inflammation can lead to all sorts of things... but on the other hand what about this hormesis concept?
(not plugging site but this article does a pretty good job of explaining it for those who havent heard of it)
Am I denying my cells their anti cancer activation of defenses?

Regarding stressors, hormesis occurs from what is pretty much the opposite of chronic stress. Hormesis occurs under the force of an acute stress that doesn't immediately damage the body; the act of stressing the body in a particular way way or may not bring about positive hormeses. These stresses should be of a non-constant time / limited duration.
