'..the therapeutic potential of mindfulness-based interventions..'

<blockquote>'The researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Institute of Biomedical Research in Barcelona, Spain found subjects who partook of 8-hour intensive mindfulness meditation showed significant molecular changes.'


'The regulation of HDACs and inflammatory pathways may represent some of the mechanisms underlying the therapeutic potential of mindfulness-based interventions. Our findings set the foundation for future studies to further assess meditation strategies for the treatment of chronic inflammatory conditions.'

- Perla Kaliman, co-author of the study.

'Our genes are quite dynamic in their expression and these results suggest that the calmness of our mind can actually have a potential influence on their expression.'
