Antidote to Stress
Discover meditation as the antidote to stress.
Meditation is now being considered the modern day ‘Antidote to Stress’ and stress is one of the main concerns in heart and stroke patients from a post and preventative perspective. Unlike a number of years ago the benefits of meditation in combating stroke, heart disease or diabetes are now scientifically proven.
‘Fight or flight’ is a physiological response in the body as a result of feeling threatened which can include increases in heart rate, blood pressure, breathing tempo, sweating, a release of stress hormones, a weakening of the immunity system and excessive clotting of blood platelets. In the modern day this occurs when we experience stress which the body recognises as a threat. Stress itself is caused by any blocks we encounter to fulfilling our desires and is not a physical threat but more a psychological or emotional challenge. As a result the physiological responses by the body is not an appropriate response and over time has adverse effects on our body.
A simple explanation of the benefits of meditation that most people today can relate to is the body’s fight/flight response to stress. The current demands of the modern world result in stress which the body perceives as a threat which affects a physiological response as set out below;
Heart beats faster/pumps more blood
Blood pressure rises
Consume more oxygen and expel more carbon dioxide
Adrenal glands pumps out adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol
SEEDS OF ILLNESS
Regular activation of flight/fight response in non-life threatening situations can weaken our health
CHANGE IN PHYSIOLOGY LEADS TO

DURING MEDITATION, THE BODY SHIFTS INTO A STATE OF RESTFUL AWARENESS
WHICH COUNTERBALANCES THE FIGHT/FLIGHT RESPONSE

Blood pressure normalizes
Consume less oxygen and expel less carbon dioxide
Adrenal glands produce less adrenaline and cortisol
Produce more rejuvenating hormones (DHEA, growth hormone)
Immune function improves

"I have just completed Ronan’s The Antidote to Stress course (Primordial Sound Meditation). I really enjoyed the course. He delivered it with such passion and clarity. He made it very easy to understand and explained everything in detail. I really enjoyed his humor, and he answered any questions with ease and understanding. He had a fabulous energy and made me feel very welcome to the course. The meditation technique itself I love and will continue to do it every day."
