Meditation has been used in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions   by #56153   13 year

Meditation has been used in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, anxiety, and intestinal problems, as well as cancer. Lawrence LeShan points out that the techniques for meditation, whether developed in India 2,500 years ago or in medieval monasteries, bear many similarities. (7)

Meditation begins by clearing ordinary concerns from the mind and focusing on a particular mental task. LeShan distinguishes four different types of meditation in common use:

  1. Listening to a tape recording designed to induce a relaxed state
  2. Repeating a phrase (a mantra) over and over in the mind as the patient relaxes
  3. Visualizing changes in the body or in images representing problems
  4. Focusing the mind on a single task, such as simply counting the number of breaths one takes

InThe Relaxation Response Dr. Herbert Benson reviews the literature on how these techniques produce relaxation and a variety of physiological responses, ranging from lowered heart rate to changes in brain waves.
