Meditation may help blood
pressure fall.......
Robert Preidt, HealthDay News, March 4, 2005
reported that transcendental meditation (TM) may
help blood vessels relax. As it relaxes the mind,
also reduce the risks for heart disease. RobertÂ’s
suggestion is based on an eight-month study
involving 111 African teens.

Researchers found that just two 15-minute TM
sessions daily could trigger an average 21 percent
increase in the teenÂ’s blood vessel dilation while
those did not meditate have an average 4 percent
decrease in blood vessel dilation over the study
period.

Dr. Vernon A. Barnes, a physiologist at the
Medical College of Georgia's Georgia Prevention
Institute, suggested if this improvement in the
ability to dilate can be replicated in other at-risk
groups, this could have important implications
using meditation programs to prevent and treat
cardiovascular diseases. [American Journal of
Hypertension, April 2005]
