It’s Time to De-Stress

It’s the worst kept secret in the world that we as a generation are too far removed from a kind of life our ancestors used to lead. The circumstances and overall dynamics have taken us far as they could from that old school of thought. Now, even though it has been a long-standing debate whether this transition did more good or bad for the human life on a granular level, the truth is no matter who wins this debate, there is no going back to the old ways. On a granular level or not, but the change has enhanced the quality of our lives to at least some extent. This improvement can be felt in a variety of ways, ways that are spaced out enough to have a strong presence in our routine, therefore altering the way we approach almost everything right from the bat. One such alteration occurred in the healthcare fold of our lives. For years, people have suffered because the quality of treatments wasn’t quite moving forward at the pace of human body’s issues. While in some cases very little help could be provided, a large chunk of unfortunate cases saw no answer at all from the medical world to a disease.

Thankfully, this has changed. The current phase boasts all sorts of helpful tools that are created with the help of cutting-edge technology, covering almost every aspect of your body. The latest addition to this assortment of tools is the recently-developed microchip nanosensor that does the work of gauging stress hormone from a mere drop of blood.

Mental health struggles have increased drastically over the course of this pandemic. More and more people are reporting symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, and other such difficulties. There has been a shocking number of suicides to go with these reports as well. In these circumstances, this technology developed researchers at Rutgers University comes as a ray of light. Microchip nanosensor can be viewed as a long-term replacement for the current way of testing similar hormones, which requires expensive lab tests and has a lengthier processing time.

By allowing the patients to monitor their cortisol levels, this microchip nanosensor facilitates better management of chronic inflammation, stress, and other conditions. It also offsets any need to enlist a lab’s help, therefore significantly bringing down the cost of the whole procedure.
