Meditating Everyday Activates Genes That Fight Off COVID Virus And Even Cancer Finds New Study

Empirical evidence has finally been provided in the form of a research which says that meditation activates genes that are used to combat Covid amongst other serious illnesses. The study looks into the correlation between meditation and activation of genes that are crucial for natural immunity.

Meditating Everyday Activates Genes That Fight Off COVID Virus And Even Cancer

According to a recent investigation, meditating for a handful of minutes per day could become the initial move in aiding the body combat cancer and viruses like COVID-19. The immune system of the body is greatly boosted by meditation and yoga routines, or Inner Engineering techniques, according to a study from the University of Florida.

Patients were asked to practice these strategies for more than a week, meditating for more than 10 hours per day. Meditation camps have grown in popularity in recent years as more individuals want to unwind from their hectic lives and enjoy some time undisturbed with their thoughts.

Although meditation’s benefits have been well established, little is understood on how it impacts biological systems at the molecular scale. Scientists have discovered that investing a week in silent meditation has genetic effects that may aid in the prevention of life-threatening illnesses.

During the retreat, these people also ate a vegetarian diet and slept on a fixed schedule, however these healthy behaviors did not get the equivalent impact as meditation, according to the researchers. Dr. Vijayendran Chandran, the study’s lead author, started meditating for 21 minutes a day when his wife recommended he try it.

“I was just trying to be open-minded. I tried it and it worked really well. My clarity and focus were improved. I just felt great,” Chandran recalls in a university release.

Meditation for ten hours activates disease-fighting genes

In 2018, 106 people participated in the study, which took place at the Isha Institute of Inner-Sciences in Tennessee. Attendees inside this closely supervised retreat sat silently for eight days, meditated for almost ten hours per day, proceeded to eat solely vegetarian dishes, and had a good night’s sleep.

Blood specimens were gathered five to eight weeks from prior to retreat, right before and after the retreat, and three months afterwards. They detected genetic variations in samples collected before and after the intensive meditation retreat. Specifically, 220 genes associated with the immunological mechanism in the body became increasingly active after respondents participated in the Inner Engineering meditation retreat. This includes 68 genes linked to interferon signaling, which aids the body in fighting infections and cancer.

“What we found was that multiple genes related to the immune system were activated — dramatically — when you do Inner Engineering practices,” Dr. Chandran reports. “This is the first time anyone has shown that meditation can boost your interferon signaling. It demonstrates a way to voluntarily influence the immune system without pharmaceuticals.”

Could meditation aid in the enhancement of COVID defenses?

Interferon signaling abnormalities have also been discovered in individuals having extreme COVID-19 and multiple sclerosis (MS) in recent research. The scientists examined the interferon gene function of attendees to that of COVID patients and discovered significant variations. In moderate COVID patients, mediation triggered 76 percent of the virus-fighting interferon genes, relative to 31 percent in serious cases.

Similarly, for MS patients, meditation was  found to be more effective than standard interferon regimens.

The results, according to Dr. Chandran, justify the use of meditation to possibly alleviate a variety of health concerns. The authors of the paper say that further research is needed, and that they wish to see if less rigorous meditation programs over a prolonged period of time can have comparable beneficial immune system effects.

The study’s discoveries have been released in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

  1. Wonderful article and yes meditation is incredible as it harmonises and synchronizes the body with the soul — the outer man with the inner man, so to speak. Thanks for informing us with such a comprehensive article.

  2. I meditate every day as well, but only on the words held in the pages of the King James Bible, studying precept upon precept and line upon line and when the false messiah/man of sin is soon to be revealed on all black mirrors (TVs, computers and smartphones) then I will know the truth of it all as I know the truth of what is occurring in this world today and it is God’s doing as God leads GOG/Satan to do His will. Only those who know God’s Word and have it in their hearts and minds will be translated when the man of sin is revealed. Sadly, God will also remove His word from the world because they did not take the opportunity to study it as commanded and read it as commanded. I weep every single morning because I know what’s soon to come.

  3. Perhaps , Barney it encompasses even more – – when someone stops and helps to change a tire, do we need to see their ‘credentials’ or does it suffice to simply see the Spirit of the Father at work within them ! ……. ….. shalom, al jenkins
