Professor Andi Clements: 'Stress Reduction/Buffering in Individuals who are Surrendered to God: Is This a Mechanism by which Religiosity Improves Health?'
An abundance of evidence supports that stress predicts poor health, and religiosity, broadly defined, typically predicts good health. It is possible that one mechanism by which religiosity positively impacts health is through reduction in or prevention of the stress response, and that Surrender (Surrender to God) is a measure that captures aspects of religiosity that would predict lowered stress levels. We have conducted several studies which together support this theory on a correlational basis. Intervention studies are needed to verify mechanism, yet increasing religiosity as an intervention is frowned upon in much of the scientific community.
