Moreover, ESA owners can also benefit from physical health improvements, which include reduced blood pressure, decreased levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, and increased levels of oxytocin, a hormone responsible for creating emotional bonds.

Beyond their physical and emotional benefits, ESAs can also help their owners navigate the world around them. They can offer a sense of security and protection when their owners feel threatened, alleviating their fears and anxieties. ESAs can even be trained to perform specific tasks, such as detecting oncoming panic attacks or reminding owners to take medications.
