The Mysterious 'Medication' of Meditation
- Meditation can be an effective way to manage pain, relieve stress, lower
blood pressure, and lower heart rate.
- The three basic types of meditation are concentrative, awareness, and
expressive, and they all induce a relaxation response, which is the opposite of
the stress response.
- For meditation to be effective, people must be agreeable to the technique
and make the effort to do it properly.
