Meditation key to good health

Mind over matter

MEDITATING daily can help reduce the risk of suffering a heart attack or a stroke. Researchers found that transcendental meditation, which involves making a sound repeatedly, could cut heart attack rates by half.

The new study found that people with heart disease who practised the relaxation technique for 20 minutes twice a day were 48 per cent less likely to have a heart attack, stroke or die, compared with those who attended a health education class for more than five years.

Meditation was also showed to lower their blood pressure.
