Meditation's Benefits for PTSD Shown in New Research Review

A narrative review published in Advances in Mind-Body Medicine examined meditation-based interventions for treating veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). With a lack of research examining alternatives to common PTSD treatments such as re-exposure therapy and medication, researchers set out to provide collective evidence for meditation as a promising alternative.

Study authors searched MEDLINE and CINAHL databases for relevant studies using selective criteria, resulting in 15 studies meeting inclusion criteria for the review. All 15 interventions reported improvements in PTSD symptoms. Based on their findings, the study authors conclude “meditation-based therapy is a promising approach for managing PTSD, particularly among veterans resistant to trauma-focused therapies.”
