New Study Suggests Meditation Can Actually Alter Your Body On A Cellular Level
Scientists aren’t quite sure how the placebo effect works. This phenomenon occurs when a patient believes they are getting treatment and their condition begins to improve, despite not actually receiving medication with an active ingredient. A new study has also found that some breast cancer survivors who practice mindful meditation and yoga can physically change their cells, despite no longer receiving treatment. Linda Carlson of the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Alberta, Canada is lead author on the paper, which was published in the journal Cancer. Their study participants had an average age of 55 and had survived breast cancer at least two years prior, but were still feeling considerable emotional distress. There were 88 participants in all that had been randomly separated into three groups, with blood samples taken before the start of the 12 week study.
