The role of mindfulness in healthcare reform: a policy paper.
“Meditation can protect the body from the negative effects of psychological stress…it can also help to prevent and treat mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.
What the scientific studies suggest is that we have, within us, the key to better health. Mindfulness practices unlock this potential and greatly increase the odds of avoiding debilitating and costly disease, while simultaneously improving quality of life, enhancing mood, and promoting general well-being.
Leveraging the body’s innate capacity to heal itself may be the key to creating a sustainable healthcare system for the 21st century.”
