GETTING ZEN: THE NEW CURE

(Health) Could a dose of mindfulness a day keep the doctor away? Research is revealing that the practice is a valuable add-on treatment for a slew of health problems. These are just a few conditions that present living can help improve:

Back pain
Adults who did mindfulness training in addition to undergoing their usual medical care had greater reductions in chronic back pain, says a new JAMA study.

Gut problems
For patients with inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn's and ulcerative colitis, using mindfulness techniques alleviated symptoms and anxiety and increased quality of life within a couple of months, per research in Plos One.

Heart Disease
When obese adults followed a mindfulness based weight loss program for almost six months, they showed improvements in fasting blood glucose, triglycerides and HDL cholesterol levels all of which are tied to type 2 diabetes and heart disease risks for up to a year after the program ended, according to a study published in Obesity.
