The Link Between Religion and Health: Psychoneuroimmunology
and the Faith Factor

Researcher: Harold G.Koenig and Harvey Jay Cohen


The number of studies supporting beneficial effects for religion
on mental health, physical health, and mortality is
growing, but no biological mechanism for such an effect has
been proven. The editors propose that religion may have a
beneficial effect on immune function through the neuroendocrine
system’s modulation of the stress response. Several
chapters address this hypothesis by examining neuroendocrine
and immune function factors in cancer, autoimmune
disorders, wound healing, HIV infection, and other infections.
