posted on 4th January 2012 by Stefan Chmelik

There are now around 40 peer-reviewed papers being published on Meditation and Mindfulness training (MBSR) EVERY MONTH! Mindfulness practice has been demonstrated to reduce pain, to alleviate depression and anxiety and to stimulate the immune system. Perhaps most importantly, developing a Mindfulness habit is one of the most reliable and consistent ways of fostering contentedness and human happiness.

It’s also free, simple to to do and available to anyone…

We came to see Dr Downing when our son Matthew was seriously unwell aged 10 with an unspecified post viral fatigue syndrome. Our GP had not been able to reassure us or provide us with anything other than advice to rest and it would pass. We were desperate when Matthew was unable to get out of bed and seemed to be going downhill. Dr Downing reacted immediately with a series of blood tests and vitamin infusions . It took two sessions but Matthew stabilised and started to eat and drink. Over the next two months, his condition improved and he was able to go back to school. It has been nearly three years since those dark months and Matthew has grown into a very tall, handsome 14 year old who has not been ill once - not even a cold!.
