In medicine, the mind, body, and spirit are one, and miraculous healing only occurs when that powerful triad is united.
Imagine being able to rid yourself of a host of medical or psychological maladies without medication or psychotherapy. You can -- with non-invasive medical meditation. It's proven effective and one of the most overlooked forms of therapy available today.
Backed by scientific research and presented here by Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa and Cameron Stauth, bestselling authors of Brain Longevity and The Pain Cure, medical meditation utilizes an array of remarkable techniques that revolutionize how doctors and patients approach the healing process. Each medical meditation has specific physiological effect, targeting afflictions from arthritis to ulcers to cancer. The clinical precision of this method is extraordinary, yet the meditations are surprisingly simple and can be done on your own, at home, at your own pace. Practiced in conjunction with conventional or alternative medical treatments, medical meditation activates the healing force within you.
This is not the meditation of yesterday. This cutting-edge advance in integrative medicine will help you live a healthier, pain-free, more balanced life. The meditations on cassette four should not be listened to while driving.

Long-term meditators experience 80 percent less heart disease and 50 percent less cancer than nonmediators, according to a large body of studies. Meditation has been shown to improve sleep and reduce chronic pain. Not all meditation is equally effective, however. Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D., has developed a form of advanced meditation he calls "Medical Meditation," which "more fully addresses every element of our physical and ethereal makeup... a full-service approach." Medical Meditation is an adaptation of kundalini yoga combined with meditation, using specific breathing patterns, posture and movements, mantras, and mental focus.
Different Medical Meditation focus on different physiological benefits for specific conditions, so once you've learned the basics, you can choose a specific Medical Meditation for high blood pressure, to improve digestion, or to strengthen the immune system or the heart, for example. Line drawings illustrate the postures, and Khalsa's stories about his patients are inspiring and involving.
Meditation as Medicine is not a brisk read or a "read-today-do-tomorrow" guide, however. Be prepared to immerse your mind in a study of chakras, mantras, breathing exercises, movement exercises, poses, and meditations--and discipline yourself to practice Khalsa's techniques patiently. Are the benefits worth all the work involved? Khalsa thinks so: "For the ill and injured, Medical Meditation is not a problem. It's a solution."
Khalsa is both a physician and a yogi. He is board certified in anesthesiology, pain management, and antiaging medicine, and president and medical director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Foundation. Cowriter Cameron Stauth, author of 12 books, was named Journalist of the Year by the National Health Foundation. --Joan PriceAbout the Author :
