How Meditation Extinguishes Inflammation Genes
According to a recent
, meditation works " published study Genie" gene magic on inflammation. What did they find?
After only 8 hours of practice, meditation had "
down regulated" several key genes: RIPK2, COX2, & HDAC histone deacetylase — the same genes that anti-inflammatory & analgesic drugs target.
In terms of their abilities, the meditators were found to have very low
stress chemicals (cortisol) when giving an impromptu speech, while performing fast and accurate on the spot mental calculations in front of a live audience.
On the implications, study author
, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the UW–Madison, had this to say: Richard J. Davidson
Our genes are quite dynamic in their expression and these results suggest that the calmness of our mind can actually have a potential influence on their expression."

fight or flight inflammation mode, putting out the wildfire can dramatically upgrade our mental, physical, and emotional health in unseen ways.
When it comes to the body's multiple disease linked "wildfire", meditation is the world's most expert
firefighting team, extinguishing inflammation from every fire-hydrant on the block. All you have to do is make the call.
