Reduces Heart Disease Risk

In the International Journal of Yoga, an article studied the effect of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program on psychological risk factors associated with coronary heart disease (CHD),” and they found the MBSR program is significantly effective in reducing symptoms of these risk factors.

Improves Sleep

Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology published a study’s results which suggest mindfulness meditation can help calm minds and improve sleep, explaining that results indicate over the course of two weeks, “meditators experienced steady improvements in sleep quality, sleep duration, and mindfulness.”

Strengthens Immune System

An article published in Psychosomatic Medicine describes a study in which patients were assessed pre-and post-intervention and found improvements in overall quality of life, symptoms of stress, and sleep quality. Moreover, cell counts showed consistent with a stift in immune profile.

Decreases Inflammation

The Journal PLOS One, examined the effect of mindfulness training on inflammation in stressed community adults and they found that they may reduce inflammation “in populations at risk for systemic inflammation.”

Supports Addiction Recovery

Published in Psychology of Addictive Behaviors an article investigates how Vipassana meditation (VM), a Buddhist mindfulness-based practice, provides an alternative for individuals who do not wish to attend or have not succeeded with traditional addiction treatments. The study evaluates the effectiveness of this practice on substance use and psychosocial outcomes in an incarcerated population. Results indicate that after relase participants in the VM course, as compared with those in a standard treatment showed significant reductions in alcohol, marijuana, and crack cocaine use.”

Fights Chronic Pain

General Hospital Psychiatry explores the practice of mindfulness meditation during a 10-week program to train chronic pain patients in self-regulation. They found at 10 weeks, “65% of the patients showed a reduction on the Pain Rating Index (Melzack) and similar decreases were recorded on other pain indices and in the number of medical symptoms reported. Large and significant reductions in mood disturbance and psychiatric symptomatology accompanied these changes and were relatively stable on follow-up.”

Reduces Symptoms of Arthritis

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health explains the science behind Mindfulness Meditation for Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), “studies have looked at the effects of mindfulness-based interventions in people with RA, and all found evidence of some improvement in subjective symptoms such as pain or in the ability to cope with the illness.”
