Meditation: How could it help you?
New research has shown that regular meditation could have far more benefits than originally thought.
A study from Georgia Health Sciences University has found that meditating regularly could decrease the risk of developing cardiovascular disease in young people.
As it helps to relax the mind and body there are numerous health benefits associated with meditation, according to Jillian Lavender, director and co-founder of the London Meditation Centre.
"In meditation the mind and the body settle down to a very deep level of rest," Ms Lavender said.
The meditation expert explained: "Specific benefits include reduced tension and anxiety, increased resistance to stress and faster recovery from stress, improved memory and concentration, reduced insomnia, increased energy and improved health."
She also said that with all these psychological positives, relationships can feel easier and the physical signs of biological ageing and stress less apparent.
Heart health benefits
Ms Lavender claimed that while meditation is well known for its mental positives it in fact helps with many physical health issues as well.
Time spent in a more relaxed mental state can bring about a reduction in cholesterol and a drop in blood pressure, which in turn could lessen the risk of atherosclerosis or stroke.
Engaging in meditation is a brilliant way to concentrate on healthy living both inside and out.
It can help reduce negative emotions, such as stress and depression, allowing you to clear your head.
Meditation can also help to detox the body as well, according to the director and co-founder of the London Meditation Centre.
"Studies on meditation have shown to reduce blood pressure, lower insulin resistance and decrease dependency on smoking," and other addictive substances, which is great if you’re looking for a way to cut down or give up altogether.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
