adverse effects

adverse effects: meditation, mindfulness and breathwork

Anxiety, panic, mania, flashbacks, dissociation, traumatic re-experiencing, psychosis and seizures are shown to be ‘precipitated and exacerbated’ in some people as observed by clinical psychiatrists and medical doctors, published in 63 research papers (1976 to 2018).

These are summaries of those large-scale studies, theories that may explain both reported health benefits and adverse effects, and clinical guidance developed for teachers and instructors to support practitioners-in-distress.
