Starkes Immunsystem durch Meditation

Strong immune system through meditation?

Improving the Immune System in the current situation where our life is limited due to the Covid 19 Outbreak, can be a tough one. What we can do about it and how we can help ourselves by improving the Immune System is adressed in this article.

We tend to be aware that fresh air, movement, balance and a healthy diet influence our Immune System. But, how can meditation be implemented as a preventive measure for health?

Take time for yourself

Due to the current situations, many companies have sent their employees in the home offices, schools and university events were cancelled and limited opportunities are available for activities. Now we are facing the challenge to arrange our daily life a bit different.

Now you need try to incorporate mindfulness in your life and take a close look at the benefits of meditation.

What does our immune system do anyway?

The immune system is our body’s own defense system and helps us to avert various pathogens, fight them and protect our health. However, we should not take it for granted but do something to support its work. It includes a balanced diet with a lot of fruits and vegetables, enough movement, fresh air and sleep, decrease the stress, enough to drink and so on and so forth. But meditation and mindfulness can also improve our health and immune defense.

Meditation and health

Meditation is already associated with many positive aspects of well-being, especially with regard to mental health. But indeed effects on physical health and immune system have also been observed.  A study shows that a person takes less medical services after they have participated in any meditation course. Also, the reduction in doctor visits has also been observed. These observations can be attributed to a reduction in physical and psychological symptoms and an increase in self-esteem through meditation.

Furthermore, brain researchers found that mindfulness training (duration: 8 weeks) had significant effects on brain activity and immune function. After the training, increased activity was observed in the left frontal lobe. It was accompanied by increased antibody concentration in the blood and freedom from fear.

If one looks at meta-analyses, which include the results of many different studies, it be can be established that meditation and mindfulness bring more positive effects which also have effect on your health even if they are not directly related to each other biologically. It will be reported that meditation allows reevaluating negative thoughts, focusing better and better classifying physical reactions. Meditation and mindfulness develop the ability to regulate one’s attention and emotions and this can be accompanied by improved health.
