My doctor has prescribed meditation sessions to help with Crohn's (pain, stress, anxiety).  Does anybody else use meditation as a therapy?

I didn't even know a Dr. could prescribe meditation sessions...sounds very cool to me, wish my Dr. would write me a Rx for that. I have never used meditation to relieve stress but I have heard wonderful things about it and think it's a great idea. It can't hurt, can only help you feel better. Take care!

I downloaded a few meditation sessions onto my iPod and found it very helpful. I also started doing yoga in the evening after the kids went to bed. Unfortunately I fell out of my routine during the holidays with both kids home and am trying to get back on track. I also started seeing an acupunturist and find that to be helpful too.

I do some breathing meditation. At first I thought it was a little out there for me but it really works. I find it helps a ton with my anxiety levels. Anything that relieves stress usually helps me feel better.
