Meditation’s Soothing Effect on the Nervous System

How Meditation Soothes Your Nerves

How To Improve Meditation Parasympathetic Nervous System With Meditation The Nervous System, known as the control center of the body, is one of the most vital systems in the human body. It is responsible for the proper function of two main responses: voluntary conscious responses activated by muscles; involuntary responses not under our control, such as breathing, sweating, digestion, etc.

Meditation soothes the nerves: It is the sympathetic nervous system that is affected the most by anxiety, tension, fatigue and depression, and experts have proven that meditation alone can dramatically reduce the many negative effects brought about by these emotions.

Meditation activates the "good" nervous system: By activating the parasympathetic nervous system, meditation healthfully slows down heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, sweating, and soothing all other sympathetic nervous system fight or flight functions.

Modern man has evolved beyond stress and anxiety: In truth, there are very few real times, other than a true emergency, that we really need our sympathetic nervous system’s “fight or flight” responses which our ancient hunter gatherer ancestors needed for daily survival.

Deep Meditation

Much of modern society’s endless anxiety is self created, it is not necessary to constantly be in survival mode. Meditation is the key to restore our genetic right to a quiet, focused, and peaceful mind, the only environment for true happiness.

Meditation creates a complexity of responses that mark a highly relaxed state. Meditation enhances breathing, increases oxygen uptake, improves nutrient flow, and improves circulation. When you are stressed, tense, & anxious, your blood’s lactate level increases, which can lead to an array of problems. These levels are greatly reduced during meditation much more quickly and effectively than with medicine or other methods.

Meditation creates the holy grail of relaxation responses: According to the world famous author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind, Dr. Borysenko, meditation teaches us just how important it is to regularly activate the body’s natural "relaxation response" – training our minds through meditation so that stress responses simply can’t take over, perpetually maintaining our mental/emotional health and general well-being.
