If there was something you could do everyday to boost your focus and productivity, feel energized, reduce stress, sleep better, maintain a positive outlook, and support whole-body health, wouldn’t you do it? It’s for all these reasons, and more, that I consider meditation a foundational pillar to good health. I used to think I didn’t have time for meditation but now I know I don’t have time NOT to do it—it’s become that integral in helping me manage all of my other many responsibilities and passions. Since starting, I’m happier than ever, have found the love of my life, and my business is rocking.

Today, on The Doctor’s Farmacy Podcast, I talk to my good friend and personal meditation teacher, Emily Fletcher, about meditation for the modern world. Emily is the founder of Ziva, the creator of The Ziva Technique and regarded as a leading expert in meditation for high performers.

Dr. Hyman is an 11-time New York Times bestselling author, family physician and international leader in the field of Functional Medicine. His podcast, The Doctor's Farmacy, is a place for deep conversations about the critical issues of our time in the space of health, wellness, food and politics. New episodes are released every Wednesday here on YouTube, and wherever you listen to podcasts.

    Scorcery, witchcraft, occultism, this is all demonic. Guys research the origins of these practices your opening up gateways to possession. In the last days ppl will fall pray to seducing spirits. Jesus is the only way and the only source of truth. Repent and follow him, time is coming to a close. While I’m here, don’t take the Mark of the Beast, Rev 13

    • Meditating regularly makes it more difficult for one to be brainwashed. I can see why certain religions demonize it.

    • I hope you find a better lifestyle my friend. You have a serious case of cognitive dissonance. I’m sorry you’re put off by these elementary consciousness practices. I’m rooting for you 🙂

  4. Joshua 1:8, Psalm 1:2, Psalm 19:14, Psalm 119:15, Psalm 104:34, Phillipians 4:8, Psalm 119:97 are just a few Bible verses that talk about the good things about meditation. You do need to guard your heart, but that is a daily practice that all believers need to do. I pray that everyone who meditates has their heart set on Jesus and puts all their faith in Him.

  5. Thank you Mark and Emily! I am also a lapsed meditator even though that regular practice made me aware of a huge change I needed to make in my life. I did follow through with the change but I just haven’t made the effort to get back to regular meditation. Now after hearing this I am going to learn Emily’s technique and try to get back to daily meditation. Many thanks for getting me motivated again. Mark, your Doctor’s Farmacy program has taught me so much! You are a great host and you allow your guests to have the spotlight to get their message to listeners.
    Best wishes to you both,
    Kelli, Lancaster PA
