Study: Mindfulness Meditation Can Reduce Inflammation And Prevent Disease - Mindfulness meditation has been credited with the alleviation of stress, depression, PTSD, HIV progression, and brain atrophy. According to a new Carnegie Mellon University study, it may also help reduce inflammation, thus lowering the risk of such inflammatory diseases as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s.
