Meditation is not a belief system; that is to say, meditation is not a practice that requires belief but it is a healing technique whose simultaneous benefits for the body, mind and soul have been proven by the most reputable scientific institutions in the world.

The Antidote Against Stress: Meditation

In our age of rapid life, it is not a surprise that increasing number of people complain about stress, anxiety, fears caused by ego, insomnia and chronic health problems. Most of us are in search of calming and peacefully pacifying the mind, in other words we are in search of a serene mind.
The positive effects of meditation on the body, mind and soul have been verified by the researches of distinguished scientific institutions such as Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Yale University and Benson-Henry Mind and Body Medical Institute which is an affiliate of Massachusetts General Hospital.
Majority of this research proves the benefits caused by regular meditation that acts as an antidote against stress which is the most significant disease factor in our current time.
The research also reveals that meditation drives a change in neuroplasticity of the brain. For this reason, in scientific world meditation is referred as ‘the antidote against stress’. The change of neuroplasticity in brain means that the way of connection in neurons and their relationships display a rapid form of evolutionary change because of regular meditation, bringing along a change in brain chemistry. In other words, meditation has been proven to change the physical structure of brain as well as its way of working in a positive way.
Today, doctors pinpoint stress as one of the major causes for miscellaneous diseases. Even though meditation should not be considered as a treatment per se, all of this research reveals that meditation is good for many health problems.

I would like to outline the main benefits of 20-minute-long regular daily meditation based on the clinical findings of institutions such as Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Yale University as follows;
