Mindfulness may be as good as medications for anxiety


LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Americans who deal with severe anxiety may be able to treat their condition without medications.

According to a study, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and mindfulness-based stress reduction appear to be beneficial for issues like depression.

The findings are based on review of data collected last year from nearly 300-people in a clinical trial.

There were some limitations to the research.

Recruitment was only held in three medical centers and most of the participants were female.

Researchers say they don’t know why mindfulness appears to help lower anxiety.
