Does it sound too good to be true? There is now more and more research showing us how powerful the mind can be. This study documented the effect of 8 weeks of meditation practiced 12 minutes per day on genetic expression and inflammation (Black DS, et al. 2013). The participants of this study were family dementia caregivers who were exposed to more stress than the average person. The results showed that 8 weeks of daily meditation can reverse the pattern of pro inflammatory gene expression by NF-kappaB. Not only did it do that, but it also showed greater expression of anti-viral response genes. These results are similar to research on cognitive behavioral stress management intervention for breast cancer patients (Antoni MH, et al. 2012). When the mind is trained properly, it can be a very powerful tool. It only requires consistency and a little bit of time to train it.
