i got this from a friend, he said it's a fact that strong relationships can help protect you from colds and flu. when the body is stressed, hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol are increased. spending time with someone you care about and who you know cares about you counteracts some of these physical changes which actually keeps the body healthier..

I think you are right. I too have this problem. I frequently catch cold and cough, and my doctor said, it is due to stress. Earlier I thought, I get infected easily due to lack of immunity and alergies. But doctor's suggestion to relax and stress less, proves that it's all what in our mind, that regulates our health, directly or indirectly.
