This is one of the reason why highly intelligent people may have a strong and quite unusual response to stimuli that might seem harmless. This response further turns into low level chronic stress and launch an unsuitable immune response. Therefore when a body believes it is in danger regardless of the fact that it might be a real one or an imagined one; it releases a cascade of physiological responses that involve a myriad of hormones, neurotransmitters and singling molecules. And when this process is chronically activated, it can alter the body and the brain eventually dysregulating immune function and causing conditions like asthma, allergies and autoimmune diseases.
The relatedness between gifted children and an increased rate of allergies and asthma is confirmed by scientific literature. The research done by the authors of this paper further supports that connection. This phenomenon is termed as hyper brain/ hyper body theory of integration, which explains that this “gift” can either be a catalyst for empowerment and selfactualisation or it can be an oracle of dysregulation and debilitation, hence the best way to acknowledge the situation is to recognise the rumbles of thunder in the wake of the brilliance.
