Meditation Proven to Lower Blood Pressure

A study published in the American Journal of Hypertension reveals that daily meditation (two sessions each lasting 15 minutes) results in a measurable drop in blood pressure in at-risk teenagers. This is yet more research demonstrating the powerful mind/body connection that western medicine continues to deny exists at all.
Interestingly, the positive effects of the meditation persisted even four months after the patients stopped the practice, indicating that meditation has substantial long-term effects. Meditation is safe, free, and has no negative side effects. It doesn't even need the supervision of a doctor, which is probably why virtually no doctors prescribe it. Pharmaceutical companies don't make money when people engage in meditation, so there's no reason for them to promote it, either. They'd much rather see people popping pills than promoting something that people can do for free.
