Health & Wellness Advice

by Dr. David Schwartz, M.D.

Health and Wellness Advice


For a plethora of health conditions, I continue to see over and over again recommendations for Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). New research shows that it changes the structure and functioning of the brain (for the better). The University of Massachusetts Medical Center has been studying MBSR since 1979 at its Stress Reduction Clinic. MBSR training results in thickening of the Hippocampus, the area of the brain important for learning and memory, and a thinning of the Amygdala, the area that regulates fear-based reactions to perceived threats. I would suppose that the Amygdala is already oversized due to most people having an excess of fear-based reactions, and that reducing its size normalizes it.

"12 Questions To Ask Yourself About Happiness"

"It is neither wealth nor splendor; but tranquility and occupation which give you happiness." - Thomas Jefferson

Although we all strive to be happy, few of us actually take stock and measure of our current levels of happiness.
