Having Prayed for Positive Health Benefits


For certain people, religion and medicine do not have the connection visible. However, have faith and hope in God, it may bring the unexpected health benefits.

Torgeir According to Sorensen, PhD candidate from the School of  Theology and Religious Psychology Center at Inland Hospitalsaid the new research on this subject reveals that the longer time spent in church, can lower blood pressure, even when several other possibilities also considered.

In that study, visitors to the church was chosen as an experimentalvariable, which represents the influence of religious activity on blood pressure and a variable indicating the health conditions in full. So proclaimed InternationalBusinessTimes.

Meanwhile, in another study conducted the University of California, in 1999 ago, researchers discovered that the Mormons (Later day saint spiritual movement) included in the list of most healthy persons and aged 9 to 12 years longer than others in the United States (U.S.).

This is an effect of abstinence so simple that their lifestyle, for example, not smoking, not drinking alcoholic beverages, do not drink tea or coffee. In addition, religious devotion also make compliance with restrictions to conduct pre-marital sex, thus preventing the transmission of sexual diseases, and fasting are also beneficial to health.

When it comes to prayer, the experts found that prayer and spirituality linked with better health. For example, the reduced risk of hypertension, more positive feelings, less depression, less stress, more psychologically balanced, and better ability to handle pressure.
