Meditation Switches on Disease Fighting Genes

19 Aug 2009

A friend of mine sent me this website, www.familyhealthguide.co.uk.

It’s about how long term practitioners of relaxation methods such as meditation and yoga can alter the course of disease.

Here’s what was said in the article,

“In the words of Dr Herbert Benson, who led the research group at the Harvard medical School, “We found a range of disease fighting genes that were active in the relaxation practitioners but not active in the control group.”

“Interestingly, in as little as two months after the control group began meditating, their genetic profile changed to resemble those of the relaxation practitioners.”
