Friday, January 17th, 2014 Focus: Meditation helps me get healthy, stay healthy, and relax quickly.

Awesome
Don’t be surprised if your doctor says to you, “Have you considered meditation?” He’s not some alternative quack. Each year I teach about 200 people — a quarter of my intake — on doctors’ referrals.

The doctors are on firm ground when they recommend meditation. They are backed up by hundreds, perhaps thousands, of scientific studies going back decades. I attended a medical conference recently where the doctor who spoke on meditation cited 212 references in his paper.

The jury has delivered its verdict. Meditation is not like the latest wonder herb from the Amazon. It’s not a kind of faith healing based on hypnotic suggestion. If you are sick, meditation can help in measurable ways. If you are not sick, meditation will help you stay healthy. It works in two main ways: it helps the body relax quickly and it settles the overwrought mind.
