Scientists have found that meditation can help a person's gut health, but it requires a lot of meditation for a long time.
A new study shows that the gut microbes of Tibetan Buddhist monks differ significantly UPI. These differences have previously been associated with a lower risk of anxiety, depression, and heart disease, according to the authors of the study.
To see if meditation has a more profound effect on a person's health, the researchers analyzed stool and blood samples 37 Buddhist monks from three Tibetan temples, as well as 19 people living nearby. Analysis of stool samples showed that the monks' intestines were significantly enriched with a number of bacterial strains.
The scientists concluded that regular deep meditation, practiced for a number of years, regulates the gut microbiome and improves health.
Meditation is more commonly used to treat mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, traumatic stress, and eating disorders .It can also help a person cope with chronic pain.
