What’s the problem?
In no way does meditation offer a cure for cancer, but during the last two decades, studies have shown that it does help to decrease pain, anxiety, stress, blood pressure, and insomnia. Meditation has been shown to be very helpful in addressing anxiety and stress. Specific studies conducted over the years note an increase in brain activity in the area linked to positive emotional states in those who meditate as compared to those who do not.
Benefits of Meditation Therapy
All forms of meditative practice have the same beneficial components:
- Deep relaxation
- Highly focused concentration
- Altered state of consciousness
- Suspension of left-brain functions
- High and sustained level of self-awareness
Cancer patients who limit themselves to the kind of meditation that does not involve strenuous activity should have no problem with this alternative mesothelioma treatment. The biggest complaint is a feeling of light-headedness and sometimes disorientation (researchers note that individuals with previous mental health problems experience the disoriented feeling more than others.). If you would like to attempt a more physical form of meditation, such as yoga, tai chi, or qigong, you should consult your doctor before signing up for any classes or sessions.
