This is no kidding! If you want to help lower your blood pressure then learn meditation techniques. It has been found those who practice meditation on a regular basis can lower their blood pressure and even lower the amount of medication they take. This interesting study was written in an article by Allison Aubrey, a correspondent for NPR News, called,To Lower Blood Pressure Open Up and Say 'OM'
In Aubrey's article, she cited a study on meditation and the effects on those with high blood pressure and on medication. She wrote, It helps to increase the formation of a compound called nitric oxide, which causes blood vessels to open up. This, in turn, lowers blood pressure.
Using meditation for health purposes whether emotional or physical has nothing to do with religion or faith unless those things are incorporated by those who are involved in the practice. There are many videos, audios, and suggestions on the web. I have personally found that meditation helps me focus better and helps my discernment and intuition. I find the practice relaxing. Meditating can also help positively reprogram the mind and the neurological pathways of the brain.
Adding positive affirmation to meditations can mindfully help change or renew the mind and also redirect one's life. When modern medicine supports an ancient practice, it is worth taking a look at. Agree?
