Meditators know that a daily practice reduces stress and helps them function better. Now MRI scans documented for the very first time in medical history show how meditation produces massive changes inside the brain’s gray matter.  


Participants spent an average of 27 minutes per day for 8 weeks practicing mindfulness exercises, and this is all it took to stimulate a major increase in gray matter density in the hippocampus, the part of the brain associated with self-awareness, compassion, and introspection.  


Participant-reported reductions in stress also were correlated with decreased gray-matter density in the amygdala, which is known to play an important role in anxiety and stress.

MYTH #5: CHIROPRACTORS ARE NOT REAL DOCTORS

FACT: Doctors of Chiropractic complete a 4-5 year post-graduate program that is similar to the training medical doctors receive.  You will find classes such as neuroanatomy, toxicology, gross anatomy, pathology and pharmacology listed in both chiropractic and medical school curriculum.
