Abstract

in English, French

The prevalence of high blood pressure is increasing and expanding preventive and treatment measures may be useful. Some data in the literature suggest that meditation can play a role not only in stress management but also in blood pressure control and cardiovascular disease prevention. Mechanisms involved may be based on the regulation of emotional and biological responses to stress, by regulation of the autonomous nervous system. This approach is available to everyone interested, has no adverse effects and is not related to any particular religious beliefs.
