The Scientific Power of Meditation
It's Official: Meditation Is More Powerful Than Pain Medication
If you're friendly with any meditation fans, chances are you've heard them liken their practice to a powerful drug. But it turns out that statement is not at all hyperbolic—astonishing new research actually shows that for those suffering from emotional pain, the relief of meditation outweighs that of morphine.
Researchers at Wake Forest University divided 75 people into different groups of pain management: mindfulness, placebo meditation, placebo cream, and a control group. After putting a high-heat thermal probe on each participant's skin, the scientists found that the meditation group's physical pain intensity was reduced on average by 27%, and their emotional pain intensity was reduced by 44%. The placebo group's pain was reduced by 11% (physical) and 13% (emotional), by contrast.
But here's the kicker: In past studies mirroring this one (using morphine rather than meditation), results showed that morphine reduced pain by just 22%—making meditation almost twice as powerful from an emotional standpoint.
