WSJ reports: Doctor's Orders: 20 Minutes Of Meditation Twice a Day

Researchers are exploring the 
benefits of meditation on 
everything from heart disease to obesity. 

Integrative medicine programs including meditation 
are increasingly showing up 
at hospitals and clinics 
across the country. 
Recent research has found that meditation can lower blood pressure and help patients 
with chronic illness 
cope with 
pain and depression.
While it is clear that "when you breathe in a very slow, conscious way it temporarily lowers your blood pressure," such techniques shouldn't be used to substitute for medications to manage high blood pressure and other serious conditions, said Josephine Briggs, director of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health. In general, she said, meditation can be useful for symptom management, not to cure or treat disease.

Recent research found that meditation can result in molecular changes affecting the length of telomeres, a protective covering at the end of chromosomes that gets shorter as people age.
