Can Meditation Lower High Blood Pressure?

Meditation, a mind-body practice shown to promote relaxation, shows promise as a means of keeping your blood pressure in check.

Blood pressure is a measurement of the force of blood against the walls of your arteries and can become elevated due to a number of factors (such as age-related narrowing of the arteries, underlying medical problems, and excessive sodium intake).

By using meditation to manage your blood pressure, you may be able to boost your defense against heart disease, stroke, and chronic kidney disease.
