    Builds self confidence.

    Increases serotonin which influences moods and behavior. Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression, headaches and insomnia.

    Enhances energy, strength and vigour.

    Helps keep blood pressure normal

    Reduces stress and tension

    Creates a state of deep relaxation and general feeling of wellbeing

    Helps with P.M.T.

    Increases concentration and strengthens the mind

    Helps reduce heart disease

    Helps with weight loss

    If you practice regularly, the benefits of meditation will promote a sense of calm and control, you’ll feel far more relaxed and happy. Your ability to concentrate will be greater. You won’t become stressed about things and you’ll feel more peaceful and relaxed about everything. One of the greatest benefits of meditation is learning to go with the flow and things that used to irritate you before simply become insignificant.

    Hope this helps

    Falun Gong was found in 1992 by Master Li Hongzhi in China. About 100 million followers like the practice in over 80 countries worldwide. Falun Gong is an ancient practice for the body, mind, and spirit based upon the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong consists of five sets of powerful exercises. Both books and meditation demonstration video are free to download from the URL listed below.

    Falun Gong, Tibetans, other Buddhists, and Daoists have been persecuted in China. The most offensive human right violation is the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners in China. Can you kindly sign a petition to stop persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China, please ?

  • In some cases, absolutely. e.g. One can use meditation and correct breathing to calm down from an anxious state.

    However, for more serious diseases and complications such as heart attacks, AIDS, Brain diseases, oh and any orthopedic procedure among others, meditation and correct breathing may serve as to lesson the anxiety attached to any procedure.

  • Well some diseases and problems within the body are caused by stress, which yoga and meditation release, and some problems or disorders happen just because the mind is overworked or scared of something, which meditating on or relaxing by practicing yoga can help

  • ABSOLUTELY!!!! Except I prefer to call it prayer rather than meditation. I’m not saying that people with heart issues shouldn’t take their medicine, but when it comes to mental disorders, I definitely think that “depression” “bi-polar disorder” “obsessive compulsive disorder” etc. can be taken care of with prayer. Psychiatric medicine for things such as I listed should be banned. There’s not enough research on any of these things, and psychiatrists are way to eager to push pills rather than get to the core of the problem!

  • Not really

    Reducing stress and exercising can help the body fight disease but it cant substitute modern medicine.

    However, if you have nothing else left to try, why not try it?

  • absolutely awareness can change so much. Read “you can heal your life” by Louise Hay also The Power of your Subconscious mind by Joseph Murphy

  • No. I just think our society is one big hypochondriac that makes up illnesses in order to make up medications in order to make money.

  • There is a greater chance of being cured for most ailments through meditation than there is through medicine, because the pharmaceutical industry is not in the business of curing people. They’re in the business of treating people and prolonging the amount of time a person lives with an illness and consumes their drugs. They’re really good at that. But not cures whatsoever. What was the last thing to be cured by medicine that didn’t require lifelong treatment?

  • the brain is very powerful and can do things unthinkable of if you really concentrate and dont wanna get sick ibelive you have great probability you wont but you have to concentrate on not wanting it.

  • Meditation isn’t going to cure acute trauma, but it can be very beneficial to your health by curtailing stress related diseases.
