Research has been done by the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Centre It shows that meditation can be more powerful than morphine.
“This research shows that just over an hour of meditation training can effect. There can be up to a 40 per cent reduction in pain and a 57 per cent reduction in pain unpleasantness. Meditation produces these reductions in pain when even morphine or other pain-relieving drugs, which usually only reduce pain by about 25 per cent.”
What Was Done
In the study, 15 volunteers, who had never previously meditated, were taught meditation techniques over four 20-minute sessions. With this very short introduction to meditation, the people were able to get these amazing results. Just in case the figures were hard to understand, meditation is nearly twice as effective in some cases as morphine. . And more important………
There are no harmful side effects. That’s right, no harmful side effects. The side effects of morphine and other strong pain killers can be absolutely dreadful. Just ask anybody who has been on them. Too much of them can kill you as well as the pain.
Powerful Free Bonus
