Here's a great piece of research from Massachusetts General Hospital. The authors studied the medical records of 4000 patients who had been advised over the years to use practise meditation, yoga or tai chi for stress-related health problems and compared them to 13000 others who had not been so advised. Those who followed the practices were 43% less likely to visit the hospital, or need medical tests and emergency care. The saving per patient was estimated as $2,360 in reduced emergency care alone.
