article imageMeditation-Not just for Buddhists anymore

By Telafree     Nov 20, 2006 in Lifestyle
For the past 40 years, meditation has been slowly joining the ranks of western medicine techniques to help the mind and the body. It is something that anyone can do and you don't have to be a Buddhist to get great results.
No matter how far back you look in history, meditation has been practiced by just about every culture in the world. Research shows that it counteracts chronic stress, a condition many scientists believe underlies most illnesses. Federally supported studies are looking into meditation as a means to improve heart health, relieve symptoms of diseases and improve the brain's long- and short-term health.
Meditation, which is turning your attention inward towards your mind, has been reportedly used by more then 15.3 million people according to the National Centers for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) to help ease symptoms of illness. Healthy people use it to relax.
The reason is simple, says Stephen Bodian, author of "Meditation for Dummies," a bestseller in its second edition. Meditation helps people who feel bad to feel good, and people who feel good to feel better.
