DETOX though MEDITATION
Meditation is a very powerful way to improve health overall and to reduce stress and anxiety. It is also a vital tool in keeping the body free of toxins. We all need to sometimes slow down and stop the “Stinking Thinking”. It has been proven over and over again that stress and anxiety are as toxic to the body as many chemicals and other toxins.
One very effective way to relieve stress and anxiety is through meditation. Many studies have proven meditation’s positive effect on brain structure and function. Meditating even as little as 5-10 minutes a day improves memory, concentration, decision-making and emotional stability. Taking the time out to let the brain “rest” is very important and mostly not practiced. When we sleep we get passive rest, but when we meditate we get active rest, which the brain REALLY needs.
A study conducted in India that examined the health benefits of meditation showed that participants who practiced for 15 days experienced significantly lower resting pulse and blood pressure. The benefits of meditation are immediate and profound. Meditation lowers stress and fewer stress hormones are produced, therefore heart rate slows down and blood pressure is reduced. This contributes to heart and overall health.
A few benefits of meditation are:
Reducing depression and anxiety
Improving heart health
Improving brain function
Reducing or controlling inflammation
