This is a introductory meditation program for stress
and
anxiety release. Most experts belief that meditation
may
be essential for maintaining a healthy immune
system & emotional stability. This is a one hour
session, which also includes a free CD.
 

                           Meditation and its benefits

Stress Control  Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure
Meditation is the major component of 
Ornish therapy, a treatment scientifically proven  
to reverse heart disease.

More Physical And Mental Benefits Of Meditation

Most of the people who get on meditation do so because
of its beneficial effects on stress. Stress refers to any or all
the various pressures experienced in life. These can come
from family, work, environment, illness, bullying, loneliness

to mention a few, and fuel such conditions as anxiety,
hypertension, and heart disease. Meditation helps to
handle stressful situations, ratherthen being handled by
them.

Research has shown that hormones and other biochemical compounds in the blood indicative of stress tend to decrease during Meditation practice. These changes also stabilize
over time, so that a person is actually less stressed bio 
chemically during daily activity.

The reduction of stress influences the nervous system directly
and the benefits are a positive reduction of anxiety and
tension. hundreds of studies have confirmed this. 


Pain Management

Chronic pain can systematically erode the quality of life.
Although great improvements are being made in traditional medicine to treat recurring pain, treatment is not always as
simple as prescribing some medication.

For example when faced with an illness, there can be anxiety
which by its very nature creates more negative emotions and
also fear. This can be a vicious cycle, people under stress experience pain more, which can result in increased stress
and so on. Meditation can help and break the circle.

Meditative techniques are also a very helpful element, easing arthritis. Meditation may not take the pain away  but it does 
help to cope better. 
 

Infertility

Infertility can make couples depressed, anxious and angry. Relaxation responses from Meditation  help such stressed out couples, ,as they begin to experience less distress and are more likely to be successful.

Illness
Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcers, and Insomnia
Meditation can also improve irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, and insomnia, among other stress-related conditions. Eighty percent of the people who use meditation to relieve insomnia are successful.
 
Anxiety and Headaches
Meditation can help prevent or treat stress-related complaints such as anxiety, headaches and bone, muscle and joint difficulties. Meditation also provides an inner sense of clarity and calm, and that, in itself, may help ward off certain illnesses.

Anxiety
Meditation can help most people feel less anxious and more in control. The awareness that meditation brings can also be a source of personal insight and self-understanding. 

Handling Repressed Memories 
Meditation may lead to a breakdown of screen memories so that early childhood abuse episodes and other traumas suddenly flood the mind, making the patient temporarily more anxious until these traumas are healed. Many so-called meditation exercises are actually forms of imagery and visualization that are extraordinarily useful in healing old traumas, confronting death anxieties, finishing 'old business', learning to forgive, and enhancing self-esteem.

Depression
Feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and isolation are hallmarks of depression—the age's most prevalent mental health problem. Meditation increases self-confidence and feelings of connection to others. Many studies have shown that depressed people feel much better after eliciting the relaxation response.

Panic Attacks
Sometimes anxiety becomes paralyzing and people feel (wrongly) that they are about to suffer some horrible fate. Panic attacks are often treated with drugs, but studies show that if people who are prone to panic attacks begin focused, meditative breathing the instant they feel the first signs of an episode, they are less likely to have a full-blown panic attack

Meditation frees persons from tenacious preoccupation with the past and future and allows them to fully experience life's precious moments. Many men and women tend to live in a state of perpetual motion and expectation that prevents them from appreciating the gifts that each moment gives us. 

Meditation is a process that returns us to the present moment of our lives and allows us to wake up and re-evaluate the way that we live our lives.

RELAXATION: AMAZING  BENEFITS DETECTED
 

THE simple act of becoming relaxed can have surprising health benefits, new research is showing. In addition to the obvious psychological effects of relieving stress and mental tension, the new findings indicate, deep relaxation, if practiced regularly, can strengthen the immune system and produce a host of other medically valuable physiological changes.

In asthmatics, for example, relaxation training has been found to widen restricted respiratory passages. In some diabetics, relaxation can reduce the need for insulin. In many patients with chronic, unbearable pain, the training has brought about significant relief.

Moreover, the research shows, relaxation may help ward off disease by making people less susceptible to viruses, and by lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Although such benefits have long been associated with meditation, a particular form of relaxation, the experimental evidence available now is much stronger than it was for meditation a few years ago. In addition, any form of deep relaxation seems to bring these benefits.

The medical advantages are not from ordinary relaxing activities, such as catnaps or gardening, but from intensive techniques that allow people to evoke a specific physiological state. ''Just sitting quietly or, say, watching television, is not enough to produce the physiological changes,'' said Herbert Benson, director of the Division of Behavioural Medicine at Beth Israel Hospital, a part of Harvard Medical School in Boston. ''You need to use a relaxation technique that will break the train of everyday thought, and decrease the activity of the sympathetic nervous system.''

Ancient and Modern Methods

Like meditation and yoga, some of the relaxation techniques being used are quite ancient, like Yoga Nidra. Others, like biofeedback or progressive muscle relaxation, are relatively new. And some, like repetitive prayer, may seem worlds away from medicine. All of the techniques, though, seem to evoke a single physiological state that Dr. Benson some years ago called the ''relaxation response.''

The findings have led many hospitals to teach their patients ways to relax as part of their medical treatment. In some hospitals physicians can now prescribe a relaxation program that is broadcast on televisions in hospital rooms, so that patients can learn the techniques from their hospital beds.

''More and more doctors are seeing the value of these techniques as a way to tap the inner capacity of patients to help with their own healing,'' said Jon Kabat-Zinn, director of the Stress Reduction and Relaxation Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester. Patients are taught to meditate on their breathing, and are led in scanning the sensations throughout their bodies. Fight-or-Flight Syndrome. See also 
Yogic Sleep Relaxation one of the best deep relaxation CDs available.

The sympathetic nervous system reacts to stress by secreting hormones that mobilize the body's muscles and organs to face a threat. Sometimes called the ''fight-or-flight response,'' this mobilization includes a variety of biological responses, including shifting blood flow from the limbs to the organs and increased blood pressure. The stress response does not require an emergency; it can be triggered merely by everyday worries and pressures.

In contrast, the relaxation response releases muscle tension, lowers blood pressure and slows the heart and breath rates.

The new work is showing that along with these changes come shifts in hormone levels that seem to produce beneficial effects on the immune system. For example, relaxation training in medical students during exams was found to increase their levels of helper cells that defend against infectious disease, according to a report in the current issue of the Journal of Behavioural Medicine.

The degree of benefits depends on the rigor with which people use the relaxation techniques. Those medical students who used the techniques just a few times showed little or no changes in the immune measure. Those who did the exercises most faithfully had the strongest immune effects, according to the report by Janice Kiecolt-Glaser and Ronald Glaser of the Ohio State University College of Medicine at Columbus.

In another study, the Ohio State researchers taught relaxation techniques to residents of a retirement home, whose average age was 74 years. After a month of training their levels of natural killer cells and antibody titers - indicators of resistance to tumours and viruses - had improved significantly, according to a report in Health Psychology.


''These improvements are particularly important for the elderly, since the immune system weakens with aging,'' Dr. Kiecolt-Glaser said. Cardiovascular Problems Abate

Much interest in the medical use of relaxation has been for patients suffering from cardiovascular problems. A report in the British Medical Journal, for example, reported that patients who had been trained to relax significantly lowered their blood pressure, and had maintained that reduction four years later.
