Plano, TX, , 2016 – Bariatric surgery can provide those who struggle with obesity a tremendous boost, but it can only take them so far. After all, weight loss is a lifelong journey. After the initial goal is met, maintenance of the loss must begin. Meditation is a practice that can help every step of the way.

“Many people underestimate the power meditation has to help people not only achieve weight loss goals, but also improve health in other ways,” explains Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the North Texas-based Nicholson Clinic, one of the top weight loss surgery centers in the country. “While the practice may not be enough on its own to promote sizeable shedding of pounds, it can help people focus on their goals, pay closer attention to the foods they eat and even enable better control over triggers that may prompt binge-eating and other bad habits.”

Nicholson points to a recent study involving the use of mindfulness meditation as further support for this practice and its health benefits. The study tracked a group of unemployed, highly stressed adults who incorporated mindfulness meditation into their lives. Researchers also tracked levels of Interleukin-6, which is a key biomarker for inflammation, in those involved in the study. As it turned out, those in the study who practiced mindfulness training saw reductions in the level of this biomarker. It is believed that actual changes in brain chemistry promoted the reduction.

“Inflammation in the body has been strongly linked to a host of serious health conditions, including diabetes and some forms of cancer,” Nicholson says. “It is also associated with obesity. Meditation can help reduce inflammatory markers in the body while also assisting in the weight loss journey and the overall journey to better health.”

Bariatric surgery can help those who are obese shed pounds to attain a healthier weight. The procedure, however, must be supported by ongoing efforts to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. Meditation can be useful in both regards. To find out more about the Nicholson Clinic, its locations and the services it provides, visit it online at .
