Meditation and its effect on cardiovascular health
It is relatively well-known that too much stress has significant health implications. Indeed, there is a clear relationship between stress and its contribution to the development of high blood pressure (hypertension). Recognizing the importance of stress in curbing hypertension has thus been an integral part of the clinical management of patients at risk. This is often done through the identification of stressors and subsequent consultation on how to reduce stress and/or anxiety.
