Self-Care: Meditation Part 2


Medical researchers have found a reduction of important cardiovascular risk factors such as high blood pressure and serum cholesterol. Large health insurance studies have shown that people practicing transcendental meditation in all age groups combined, display 50% reduction in both inpatient and outpatient medical care utilization compared to their controls. Hospitalization is 87% lower for heart disease and 55% lower for cancer. And what is most remarkable, meditators over 40 years old have approx. 70% fewer medical problems than others in their age group. (www.tm.org)
