Meditation—the Best Medicine

Meditation is, without any doubt, the best and most natural form of medicine. It has no side effects, and it is absolutely free. Therefore, why don’t you consider trying it out today?

When the word “health” is mentioned, the mind automatically starts visualizing syringes, pills, capsules, drips, nurses and the list is endless. However, it is surprising to know that all these make up for a small percentage of what health really is. Even if your body is 100% fit (quite rare, if not impossible) yet your social, mental and psychological lives are lacking, then you do not qualify to be called healthy. Before you think of killing me because of this harsh remark, you need to know that this is what health is defined as by the world health organization.

When you get into the mode of meditation, the body gets into a rhythm. These rhythms cause the blood pressure to reduce by causing the heart and surrounding cardiac tissues to relax. Also, the muscles of the blood vessels relax along side other muscles in the body. As a result, those with high blood pressure relax as their pressure is reduced to a point where it is normal and healthy. When this happens, a series of other changes start happening in the body.

Adrenaline is released in lesser amounts, and the person becomes more relaxed and the body organs are at a lower risk than before. When more useful and healthy substances are released into the body, then immunity goes up because the right cells are being formed.

The working of meditation is very simple and to the point. What happens to you when you have abdominal pain and you spend ten minutes focusing on the pain? It seems to increase, and it ends up being severe. Meditation works in the same way only that it works to ensure that positive results are obtained. When you do meditation, you think of a specific thing, say an organ.

However, you do not think of how sick the organ or body part is. You deliberately have peaceful thoughts towards the organ. When you do this, the constricted blood vessels relax and open up, and the flow of blood to this organ or part of the body is increased. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to the organ and tissues, and it also leaves with every waste and toxins in the organ or tissues. Needless to say, improvement is seen.
