Meditate Your Way To Optimal Health

Posted on Apr 19, 2020


Some people take pills to feel better. Others meditate. For those interested in natural health, meditation can truly help them feel better on their way toward optimal health. Why is meditation so helpful?

Meditation helps people ease their pain, stress and anxiety while improving their mood, immunity and even their heart health. Why is this? Well meditation chiefly helps people de-stress, and any condition caused/worsened by stress can then find needed relief. When a person meditates, they’re relaxing, which helps decrease metabolism while lowering blood pressure and improving the heart rate. It’s kind of like a mini-vacation for the body.

Meditation sends messages from the brain to the body’s various systems to relax. This helps ease tension and tightness in muscles and more. When a person repeats a word or phrase over and over (a “mantra” if you will) they’re ignoring other thoughts while focusing on their breathing. This soothes the body overall, creating a biological response of relaxation that improves a person’s overall health.
Why meditate daily? It has many benefits. Stress reduction is perhaps the most common reason why someone would choose to meditate. By reducing stress, a person also gets the bonus benefit of reducing anxiety. So, for those dealing with paranoid thoughts, social anxiety, phobias, obsessive-compulsive behaviors and/or panic attacks, meditation could truly help!

Meditation promotes emotional health, giving people a more positive outlook on life. It’s hard to be anxious and grumpy when one relaxes themselves, right? Want to be less depressed? Meditate. You can also enhance your self-awareness while meditating, learn to lengthen your attention span, and find more clarity of thinking, which helps keep the mind young.

Finally, know this: if you are having persistent pain, that pain is connected to your state of mind. And if you’re in stressful situations, that pain– coupled with your state of mind– is going to be worse. Therefore, take some time to meditate in order to get rid of some stress, which, in turn, gives you peace of mind… and less pain. Ultimately, meditation can diminish the perception of pain in the brain, and that’s a good thing!

The nice thing about meditation is that you can do it anywhere. It doesn’t require special equipment or space. And it can be done in just a few minutes a day. For more information on meditation, look up YouTube videos or Google “meditation techniques” to see what you can do to improve your overall health through meditation.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
