Medical science proves that depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other major psychiatric illness, as well as diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes have causation components that are stress-related, and can lead to destruction of brain tissue. But with mindfulness meditation techniques and practice, improvement can be seen in the brain tissue that has been affected by these significant stressors. Mindfulness meditation has also been shown to improve sense of well being and manage chronic disease.
