Meditation and Stress Management

An additional resource that BodyEnergy Company would like to include is in the area of meditation and stress management. As I was researching the benefits of diet and nutrition in counteracting inflammatory processes in the body, I became aware that many researchers also recommend some form of meditation as well. This is because metabolic processes which contribute to weight gain, insulin resistance and hypertension can also be influenced by stress hormones in the body. Of course, all of the above can create the foundation that contributes to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and even Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

As a preventative technique for stress management, I would like to recommend the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program, which has been around for over 50 years, is easily learned, and has been more scientifically researched than any other self-development study (with over 600 studies). TM has also recently been endorsed by the American Heart Association as the only meditation technique found to be effective in lowering high blood pressure. I feel it is also an excellent complement to the benefits of CranioSacral Therapy.

I myself have been a practitioner for over 40 years and have enjoyed numerous benefits in that period of time. Of course, there are many techniques for self-relaxation and I am recommending the one I know the most about.  I am also a certified teacher of TM, and as a certified medical provider I can prescribe and recommend TM to those clients who I feel may benefit from additional stress management resources. This recommendation comes with some cost benefit in the reduction of the price for the beginning 7-step program in TM.
