Medical Meditation

Medical meditation is a process that uses the body’s natural resources on a cellular level. It promotes the body’s use of oxygen and blood flow and increases immune system response. At its heart it is a physical activity rather than simply a mental process. Changes in heart rate, respiration, blood pressure and many other physical responses can be measured during meditative states.


Medical meditation is also a mental process. It is a discipline that is learned, and then incorporated into daily life.

Although benefits at the time of meditation may be present, when confronted by the unexpected complications of medical problems, having as part of your mental coping strategies and repertoire the tools that are internalised during meditation can make all the difference in the world.

Medical meditation is something that is easy to learn.  There are no fancy positions or poses, no techniques that are difficult to master and no techniques that require anything more than a little effort, a few minutes of your time and the desire to see improvement in both the short-term and long-term.

Medical meditation is transformational, and if you want to get well, change will occur. For some people this change is quick and profound, for others it is slower or less profound, but every patient who applies the principles of medical meditation will experience improvement on some level. It is not for those who wish to stay stuck.


Medical meditation is a true solution and is not just a novelty or an ancillary intervention, but a true solution to many medical complications. The following is a list of specific health benefits from the Mayo Clinic website.


Research suggests that meditation may help such conditions as:

  • Allergies

  • Anxiety disorders

  • Asthma

  • Binge eating

  • Cancer

  • Depression

  • Fatigue

  • Heart disease

  • High blood pressure

  • Pain

  • Sleep problems

  • Substance abuse

Additional research studies show medical meditation having benefits in regards to:

  • Anti-aging

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Surgical preparation

  • Diabetes

  • Immune disorders

  • Wound healing

  • Bone fusion

  • COPD and Emphysema


Think about your medical conditions for a moment. How have they limited you? How have they diminished your joy for life or brought about a sense of uncertainty in your life and in the life of your family members?  By practicing meditation, healing is promoted and wellness is the result. A state of wellness not only produces a decrease in pain but an increase in functionality, and this in turn gives a newfound sense of freedom.
