Yoga, Meditation Reverse Stress Reactions In DNA That Cause Mental Health Disorders. by Ben Renner. COVENTRY, England — Yoga is not only good for your muscles, joints, and ligaments, it’s also good for you at the genetic level.

A recent study found that yoga and other mindful practices like meditation can actually reverse the reactions in our DNA that cause stress, depression, or similar. The conclusion: Such activities reverse molecular reactions in DNA that cause poor health and depression. “Millions of people around the world already enjoy the health benefits of mind-body interventions like yoga or meditation, but what they perhaps don’t realize is that these benefits begin at a molecular level and can change the way our genetic code goes about its business,” said lead.

Exercise also had a protective effect in an acute stress restraint animal model where decreases in global DNA methylation in areas of the brain were observed after stress; however, animals exposed to stress restraint with an exercise intervention had no change in global DNA methylation status [68].

  • One simple rule to have healthier unrefined diet is from Dr Bill Harris of the vegetarian society of hawaii: if it has no fiber, do not eat it. Fiber needs water to work so do soups. Can eliminate refined substances like oil, sweeteners, juice, refined flour, protein powder, salt, etc. Another class of junk food to reduce or eliminate are animal products (all animal products have 0 fiber) and just take vitamin b12 supplement. China has already told its citizens to reduce animal products by 50% for health and for the environment. About 15% of global warming is caused by livestock.

  • For those wanting to learn how to meditate follow the link below.  Originally it was recommend to me by a Burmese monk.  While there are many different forms of meditation this one, from what I understand is the ultimate.  The story of the Buddha is that he went around trying different techniques but was never satisfied until he discovered this one, vipassana.  The course is FREE.  At the end they ask for a donation but from all of my experiences there is zero pressure.  They house you and feed you for 10-days.  During that time they teach you step-by-step the technique.  Know that this form of meditation is more than just managing stress.   https://www.dhamma.org/

  • Do you not realize that Humanity counts on you not worried about what other doctors think and doing something to save their mom and grandmother instead of thinking about cancer cells they have thousands of ways to kill cancer cells they kill children in medical hospitals all the time who have cancer they give them third degree burns on the inside of their skulls is this where you want to research to go.

  • Superb video. Thank you Dr Greger. So, not only does meditation open a gateway into a reality beyond everyday comprehension it can help us live longer. Win win.

  • I heard a similar study, it said that aging was not so clearly related to caregivers vs non caregivers, but rather it was their personal reaction to the stress situations in their lives that was the crucial factor. There were people in the non caregiver group whose perceived levels of stress was high, and they did show higher cortisol levels than many of the caregivers.

  • It’s been nine years since this presentation; yet I have seen no cancer treatment therapies based on this amazing work. Why is that?

  • This is a great brief. I was care giver to my folks in their late eighties and my mother through her nineties, who would now have been 100. I’ve done Raj Yoga meditation for 47 years, and that’s what gets me by in a world running round crazy, eating from the slaughterhouse police state mentality. Plus, the Dalai Lama has said, “Sleep is the best meditation.” Fruit before bedtime relaxes and a little cayenne in a snack helps one dream. Without dreams there is no life… Thanks again Dr. Greger. “Doctor” from the Latin means “teacher”.

  • Yes Meditation is absolutely amazing! I have gotten so much benefit from it. But I still have some habits and behaviors that are not changing? I am curious if they will ever go away? It mostly relates to my relationship to a close friend. Anyway have you had any change in deep rooted behaviors and habbits?

  • I really like you providing subtitles captions in video which makes it far more easy to grasp and share with non fluent English readers
