While many of us feel they have found the key to unspoiled health with meditation, this hope is faltering, as international science validated recently. Read on to learn more about.
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
When we talk about health, we may well understand that we ourselves are not only a physical phenomenon but have to integrate also our mental capacity.
Meditation has become some kind of health-related Hype also in our Western culture, to be practiced three times more in 2017 than 5 years before. Commonly declared to relax both – body and mind. In order to better cope with illness, psychological imbalance and support our well-being in general, including depression and anxiety.
Although there are some different types of meditation around, they do have some features in common such as, inter alia, an open attitude, a quiet environment and specific posture.
LIMITS – SCIENTIFICALLY VALIDATED
Despite of this seemingly unspoiled reputation, however, international research at, inter alia, the University College London (UCL), the University of Ljublijana in Slovenia and Witten/Herdecke University in Germany came to less harmonious results.
By consulting more than 1,200 meditative practitioners about potential inconvenient results. In this context, unpleasant psychological events were reported by almost 30% of men and some 23% of females, after practicing meditation for at least 2 months.
With special reference to fear, anxiety, impaired emotions, change of self-esteem, etc.
Lacking further in-depth studies on this subject so far, these scientifically validated findings are certainly groundbreaking and better not to be trivialized when it comes to meditation.
IN A NUTSHELL
