Would you like to experience life where there is less stress, where you guide your energies to find your natural balance?
There is a new understanding as researchers tell us how stress causes cells to age. Professor Elizabeth Blackburn jointly won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2009. Blackburn who is Australian/American, co-discovered telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes the telomere.
Telomeres are DNA strings that protect the end of chromosomes and can be likened to the plastic end of a shoelace. When a cell divides some telomere is lost but if it becomes too short that cell can no longer replicate. Women with the highest level of perceived stress have shorter teleomeres.
Can meditation slow the rate of cellular ageing? Can telomere be lengthened?
