Using Meditation to Heal, Balance & Revitalize

Meditation is a powerful tool to help you heal, sustain balance and revitalize you on all levels. In Raw Vitality we talk alot about the importance of healthy stress management in the prevention and reversal of chronic health conditions. We live in a stressful world, we cannot get away from it, but how we deal with that stress is extremely important. Often we don't realize the impact stress is having on us at a cellular level. We know stress ages us much more quickly, breaking down our cells and causing cellular changes that can lead to chronic health conditions. We know stress reduces the health of our immune system making us more susceptible to health problems. We also know stress interferes with our ability to function well mentally, it reduces our clarity and focus and makes us less effective in our work, relationships, parenting and personal life. 

Science continues to show time and time again that meditation is a powerful tool to help us manage stress effectively, reduce the stress impact on our body and mind, and now it has also shown that mediation actually increases our disease fighting genes, meaning it is an effective tool to prevent and reverse chronic health conditions. 

Researchers at Harvard Medical School discovered is that, in long-term practitioners of relaxation methods such as yoga and meditation, far more ''disease-fighting genes'' were active, compared to those who practiced no form of relaxation.

In particular, they found genes that protect from disorders such as pain, infertility, high blood pressure and even rheumatoid arthritis were switched on. The changes, say the researchers, were induced by what they call ''the relaxation effect'', a phenomenon that could be just as powerful as any medical drug but without the side effects. ''We found a range of disease-fighting genes were active in the relaxation practitioners that were not active in the control group,'' Dr Herbert Benson, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, who led the research, says. The good news for the control group with the less-healthy genes is that the research didn't stop there.

The experiment, which showed just how responsive genes are to behaviour, mood and environment, revealed that genes can switch on, just as easily as they switch off. ''Harvard researchers asked the control group to start practising relaxation methods every day,'' says Jake Toby, hypnotherapist at London's BodyMind Medicine Centre, who teaches clients how to induce the relaxation effect. ''After two months, their bodies began to change: the genes that help fight inflammation, kill diseased cells and protect the body from cancer all began to switch on.''

More encouraging still, the benefits of the relaxation effect were found to increase with regular practice: the more people practiced relaxation methods such as meditation or deep breathing, the greater their chances of remaining free of arthritis and joint pain with stronger immunity, healthier hormone levels and lower blood pressure.
