The effect of mindfulness meditation training on biological acute stress responses in generalized anxiety disorder


Individuals with Generalized Anxiety Disorder in the mindfulness group had a greater drop in stress-related ACTH hormone.

Individuals in the mindfulness group also had a greater drop in pro-imflammatory cytokines during the stress task.

Findings suggest that mindfulness meditation training may have helped participants cope better with subsequent stress.
