Meditation has been studied over 30 years and is an evidence-based method that counteracts daily stress responses. The effects have been shown in MRIs of the brain, in biochemical changes in blood, and even in genetic changes in the body. This mind-body method has been proven to significantly improve health and quality of life for patients with illnesses that are caused or made worse by stress, including obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, pain and fatigue syndromes, mood disorders and many others. It has been shown to also improve attention, increase creativity and provide greater cognitive flexibility. The benefits proven for patients using this method also applies directly to all healthcare providers. It is an important step in ‘healing the healer’.
