|Psychoneuroimmunology and HIV: Is There a Mind-Body Connection?|
|March 29, 2006|
Dr. Hecht explores whether depression, stress, and other psychological factors can affect the outcome of HIV disease. A few studies suggest this possibility, but more research is needed. Dr. Hecht also discusses increases in CD4 count from a yoga and HIV study and how meditation/mindfulness classes have been proven to decrease stress and depression in other populations.
