Meditation is an effective way to boost immunity!? How does meditation boost immunity?
The fact that meditation boosts immunity attracts the attention from the medical area, too. Meditation is actively adopted as an option of treatments in the U.S., Britain and Germany.
“Breath” is the most deeply related to immunity. It has been elucidated that “breathing out”in particular is the key to boost immunity. <snip> Breathing out is an act to activate “parasympathetic nerve”in our automatic nervous system.
Signs indicating a decrease in functioning of parasympathetic nerve
* have bad circulation
* have stiff shoulders and feel tired
* evacuate not smoothly
For example, if you breathe in for four seconds, breathe out slowly over time for eight to twelve seconds and repeat it for five minutes.Your body gets warm only by doing this and you will feel tension alleviated, which is parasympathetic nerve effect.
On the other hand, if the sympathetic nerve dominantly works for a long period of time, granulocytes increases (too much increase is related to the onset of cancer) in blood, which suppresses the function of lymphocytes (cells also called the center of immunity) and reduce immunity. This is a well-known fact in immunology.
