A study published in the American Journal of Hypertension
reveals that daily meditation (two sessions each lasting 15 minutes)
results in a measurable drop in blood pressure in at-risk teenagers.
This is yet more research demonstrating the powerful mind/body
connection that western medicine continues to deny exists at all.
Interestingly, the positive effects of the meditation persisted even
four months after the patients stopped the practice, indicating that
meditation has substantial long-term effects. Meditation is safe, free,
and has no negative side effects. It doesn't even need the supervision
of a doctor, which is probably why virtually no doctors prescribe it.
Pharmaceutical companies don't make money when people engage in
meditation, so there's no reason for them to promote it, either. They'd
much rather see people popping pills than promoting something that
people can do for free.
