WHAT IS

CONSCIOUS HEALTH MEDITATION?

HOW IT WILL HELP YOU AS A DOCTOR:

Be prepared to completely re-think what you thought you knew about meditation. Conscious Health Meditation isn’t your typical mindfulness exercise.

It’s not just about relaxation- it’s SO MUCH MORE.

Conscious Health Meditation re-wires the way your body handles stress.

  • Neutralize the effects of cortisol and adrenaline from your near-constant survival mode.

  • Increase production of serotonin, dopamine, DHEA-S, and endogenous opioids.

  • Become less reactive in high-stakes clinical situations.

  • Be more easily adaptable to changes and setbacks.

  • Maximize ‘Adaptation Energy’.

  • Improve your clinical intuition and instincts.

  • Reconnect with your compassion and empathy, your patients, and yourself.

  • Stay in the moment during a hectic day of patient care. 

  • Increase energy and creativity to come up with impactful solutions to improve the healthcare system.

  • Get more done in less time.

  • Improve digestion and immune function, leading to less sick days and more energy.

  • Improved sleep. Will help you catch up on years (decades!) of chronic sleep deprivation (Conscious Health Meditation is up to 5 times more restful than sleep).

  • CME! The Conscious Health Meditation course is now approved for 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ (see below for details). Win-win!

Conscious Health Meditation can be learned by anyone, even (especially) someone who believes they are too stressed, anxious, or skeptical to meditate.

  • Does not require clearing the mind of thoughts or cessation of thinking.

  • Triggers a physiologic effect in the brain and body, which allows the mind to settle down to a unique state of restful alertness.

  • Is up to 5 times more restful than sleep (based on our metabolic consumption of oxygen), and this profound rest allows the body to naturally dissolve its stresses.

  • Is NOT a religion! People from any culture can experience its benefits, and practicing the technique requires no change in one's beliefs.

  • It is practiced twice a day, sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.

As a physician who is part of a busy, high stress practice, meditation has helped me immensely in managing that stress, coping with anxiety, and allowing me to enjoy my life in the moment. I am indebted to Jill for teaching me this practice, and I recommend meditation to all of my stressed out patients as well!
