The Effectiveness of Meditation for Health Related Conditions
During the past 50 years there has been a growing interest in meditation and the resultant medical benefits. Meditation has been shown to reduce physical, emotional and mental stress and stress-related hormones, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, improve sleep and brain function, as well as having anti-aging effects. As a result, meditation is a practice that many physicians prescribe, because in addition to these benefits there don’t appear to be any negative side effects. It’s better than a drug, as it’s both effective and safe.
