Power of meditation
Every single cell of your body benefits from the power of meditation, prayer and self-hypnosis.
Studies show that in addition to making you calmer, meditation produces significant rises in a variety of antibodies and blood cells which are associated with increased immune function. When you meditate you improve your body’s ability to resist disease, the effects of stress and increases blood flow to your heart muscles.
Other benefits of meditation include reduced incidence of strokes, heart disease, and cancer. It improves resting heart rate, lowers blood pressure, diminishes chronic pain and, of course, reduces anxiety and depression.
I once read that if meditation were a drug, it would be medical malpractice for your doctor to fail to prescribe it. Around the world, research continues to study the benefits on meditation on many diseases.
In Love as Healer, Dean Ornish, MD, asks, “How did we get to a point in medicine where interventions such as radioactive stents, coronary angioplasty, and bypass surgery are considered conventional, whereas eating vegetables, walking, meditating, and participating in support groups are considered radical?”
Healthcare in the U.S.
Here in the U.S., we spend more per capita on healthcare than any other country in the world.
The U.S. ranks sixth in the world for cancer, 2150 people in the U.S. die each day from heart disease. In 2017, Alzheimer’s and other dementias will cost the U.S. $258 billion.
And, one in five Americans now suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder. Our infant mortality rates are higher and life expectancy lower than other economically developed countries.
Obesity is preventable and reversible, and yet in the U.S. we spend $147 to $210 billion per year on weight loss.
The research shows that with meditation, we can have genuine healthcare reform in the U.S. You can be responsible for giving care to your own health with meditation.
