Not only does Mindful Based Stress Reduction help reduce anxiety, but it increases immune function, and decreases inflammation too! Attitude is everything.
“Twenty-four participants (28-72 years) were enrolled in an 8-week MBSR program. There were significant improvements in anxiety and overall distress across multiple domains of quality of life versus baseline. The patients who reported improvement in mental well-being also showed increased natural killer activity and lower C-reactive protein. However, the patients who reported no improvement showed no change in natural killer cell activity. ”
