The Effects of Meditation on Your Health

The health of a human being is very crucial, and billions of dollars are spent every year to ensure that the people are healthy. Healthy people are more productive, and a healthy nation is automatically a wealthy one. However, all this money does not need to be spent on health when there are so many other means that do not need even a dime to be effective. Meditation is one of those. However, I must say that people are becoming more and more aware of meditation, and it is becoming more acceptable across the world.

Meditation causes various changes in the different parts of the brain, and these changes bring positive effects on the body tissues and organs. The sphere in the brain that enables one to reason and analyze issues usually pauses and rests when it is time for meditation. This, in turn, makes less adrenaline to be released into the blood, and all the organs become relaxed and they naturally heal from the effects of too much adrenaline. Also, the right signals are sent to the organs. Therefore, the pancreas produces the right amount of insulin for the diabetic and the blood forms the right number of white blood cells for those who are leukemic and anemic.

The sphere that acts as a connection between the person and the environment also goes into a break during meditation. The fact that you are not relating to your surrounding and to the issues that cause you pressure for those fifteen or thirty minutes causes a reduction in stress levels throughout the whole body. The effects do not only last for the time you are in meditation, but the effects are prolonged.

Generally speaking, the brain goes into the alpha state of waves during meditation. There are many other brain waves that the brain operates in throughout one’s lifetime, but the alpha state is the best. It is a state in which the brain coordinates the body organs to work positively and it is a state in which healing happens fast. Therefore, meditation is apt after you have undergone surgery or a certain therapy (like chemotherapy) which has caused damages to any cells or tissues.

Meditation also has indirect effects on health because it helps addicts of drugs and other substances to slip from the addiction. When the addict does right meditation, his mind is able to tune from the addiction and to explore the possibility of being free. Therefore, the person is able to be free from the addiction and, subsequently, the adverse effects of the drugs.
