Dr. Dean Ornish and his wife Anne explain the power of the breath and how it applies to the healing practice of meditation. Learn more about the importance of meditation as part of the Dr. Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease: http://undoitwithornish.com.

Dean Ornish: "What we meditate on, we tend to manifest into our bodies and in our lives. Meditation allows us to use the power of our minds and direct it away from the negative, and towards the healing, which in turn can make us feel better, it can make us enjoy life more fully and it can help keep us healthy."

Anne Ornish: "Your breath is the most perfect, natural object of mediation -- it's the most readily accessible and powerful tool we have. The awareness of your breathing serves as a bridge between mind and body, between consciousness and unconsciousness. This furthers our goal of increasing our field of overall awareness, or in other words, 'as is the breath, as is the mind and body'.

Normally, when we're not paying attention to our breath, it tends to be more random and subject to fluctuations of our moods, thoughts and circumstances. Because our breath powerfully corresponds to our heart rate and temperament, we can practice conscious, slow, and rhythmic breathing to better regulate a steady heart rate, a serene mind and a relaxed body.

By cultivating greater awareness of the breath, we support an ever expanding and all-encompassing moment-to-moment attunement with our thoughts, feelings and behaviors."

Stop chest pain. Halt the progression of disease in your body. Start feeling better by changing your life.
