(NaturalNews) With Associate Professor Maria Kozhevnikov from the Department of Psychology at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, leading a team of researchers, it has been found that core body temperature is something that is under personal control.

The research lead scientists to the conclusion that an increase in the body's core temperature can be achieved by specific meditation techniques, techniques that can also assist those with immunodeficiency.

"Published in science journal PLOS ONE in March 2013, the study documented reliable core body temperature increases for the first time in Tibetan nuns practicing g-tummo meditation."

"The researchers collected data during the unique ceremony in Tibet, where nuns were able to raise their core body temperature and dry up wet sheets wrapped around their bodies in the cold Himalayan weather (-25 degree Celsius) while meditating."

In addition to the nuns during the Tibet study, a set of Western participants achieved core body warming results with breathing techniques, in a second study.

What is g-tummo?

There are two main aspects to the g-tummo technique that assisted in raising the core body temperatures of participants. The primary aspect is the breathing technique called "vase breath." The second aspect is a concentrative visualization where the practiser creates a mental image of flames along the spinal column.

In conjunction, both of these techniques have led to the increased body temperatures upwards to the moderate fever zone in many that have practiced it.

Where is the value in raising core temperatures?

Besides the ability to adapt to and function in colder environments, those who practice g-tummo meditative techniques may be able to boost cognitive performance by speeding up response time, as well as improve infection resistance.

Assoc Prof Kozhevnikov explained, "Practicing vase breathing alone is a safe technique to regulate core body temperature in a normal range. The participants whom I taught this technique to were able to elevate their body temperature, within limits, and reported feeling more energized and focused. With further research, non-Tibetan meditators could use vase breathing to improve their health and regulate cognitive performance."
