Meditation found to lower blood pressure

Reuters Health

NEW YORK -- Practicing a particular type of meditation twice a day can significantly reduce blood pressure, according to an analysis of existing research on the technique.

The blood pressure reductions associated with regular practice of transcendental meditation, or TM, would translate to a 12-15 percent reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular causes and a 15-20 percent lower risk of stroke, Dr. James W. Anderson, the study's lead author, told Reuters Health.

In TM, a person sits in a comfortable chair for 20 minutes twice a day and attempts to quiet the mind by focusing on a mantra, Anderson explained. "It's fairly simple but you need training to get into it," he added. "It allows you to get below the kind of 'cocktail chatter' that's always going on in your brain."

還有這些...

There are a number of different types of meditation and relaxation techniques, Anderson pointed out, but he said TM has a unique ability to bring the practitioner into a "quiet zone" that acts as a kind of "sanctuary" for a person, refreshing them and reducing stress.

2 個已更新項目:

Some research on TM has been criticized as being biased and of poor quality, the researcher and his colleagues at the University of Kentucky in Lexington note in their report in the American Journal of Hypertension.

3 個已更新項目:

To better understand the real benefits of the practice for people with high blood pressure, they looked at nine trials that compared blood pressure changes in a group of patients practicing TM versus a "control" group.

4 個已更新項目:

The researchers limited their analysis of the findings to the three clinical trials they rated as being high quality.

5 個已更新項目:

Based on these three studies, TM reduced systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) by 4.7 points, and diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) by 3.2 points.

6 個已更新項目:

"Sustained blood pressure reductions of this magnitude are likely to significantly reduce the risk of heart disease," Anderson and his team conclude.

    Meditation found to lower blood pressure

    科學研究:靜坐有助降低血壓

    Reuters Health 路透社 健康版

    Practicing a particular type of meditation twice a day can significantly reduce blood pressure, according to an analysis of existing research on the technique.

    根據現存的研究分析指出,一天進行約兩次的冥想靜坐對於降低血壓有顯著的成效。

    The blood pressure reductions associated with regular practice of transcendental meditation, or TM, would translate to a 12-15 percent reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular causes and a 15-20 percent lower risk of stroke, Dr. James W. Anderson, the study's lead author, told Reuters Health.

    血壓的降低與超脫靜坐有密切關聯性。此研究的作者james W. Anderson博士指出,靜坐不僅能降低心血管疾病死亡率至12-15%,也能減低中風的風險。

    一天靜坐兩次,每次約二十分鐘,落坐於一張舒適的椅子上,盡量沈澱自己的心情,安定思緒,並將腦中心緒集中在某句真言或祈禱文。Anderson博士說:"這樣的靜坐模式聽起來容易,但事實上是必須經過訓練的。在適當的訓練過後,你才能擺脫腦中的紛擾思緒。"

    冥想或沈思事實上有許多種不同形式,但Anderson博士指出,靜坐擁有某種特殊的力量,它能引領實踐者進入宛如"淨土"一樣的地方,在那塊安靜的心靈聖殿中,實踐者自然而然能得到源源不絕的能量並釋放壓力。

    Anderson博士以及他在肯塔基州的同事在美國高血壓期刊上的報告中指出:有些關於靜坐的實驗總被批評為有偏見的以及品質不佳。

    2008-04-15 08:39:11 補充:

    因此,為了進一步釐清高血壓患者實行靜坐的真正助益,研究者實施九個實驗,將患者區分成兩組,分別是有實施靜坐的高血壓患者,以及未實施的患者。

    研究者最後將分析範圍限制在三個施測品質較好的臨床實驗中。

    根據這三個研究結果指出,靜坐的成效大約是降低4.7的收縮壓,也降低了3.2的舒張壓。

    Anderson博士與他的團隊再一次重申:經由實驗證實的血壓降低是很可能大幅減少心血管疾病風險的。
