Health Benefits of Reducing Stress

By

Meditation helps to reduce stress by teaching us to switch off from the worries that can plague us through the day. By switching our worries off, we switch on our body’s natural ability to heal it and recover from all the mental injuries it has amassed the entire day.

Numerous studies have shown that meditation has health benefits. Many of these benefits are related to the decrease in stress-related illnesses. Meditation has also been shown to relieve the pain associated with certain chronic diseases.

Here are some health benefits of meditation:

  • It decreases respiratory rate and lowers oxygen consumption. Research shows that during meditation, oxygen consumption decreases by 10 to 20%, leading to a deep state of relaxation, even more effective than a night of sleep.
  • It increases blood flow and slows the heart rate, allowing the body to return to is normal blood pressure
  • Reduces anxiety attacks/panic attacks by lowering the levels of blood lactic acid.
  • Decreases muscle tension (any pain due to tension) and headaches.
  • It increases serotonin production which influences mood and behaviour.  Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression, obesity, insomnia and headaches.
  • Helps in chronic diseases like allergies, arthritis etc.
  • Reduces Pre- menstrual syndrome (PMS) such as body aches, bloating, low back pain, cramps, and headache.
  • Helps in post-operative healing as meditation promotes cell regeneration and faster response rate of the immune system.  Research reveals that meditation increases activity of natural-killer cells, which quickly respond to virally infected cells and even tumor formation.

Meditation is not a bitter pill you need to swallow in order to feel better. In fact, it is the best medication you can take that will help cure several ailments you may have right now all at the same time.
