Hello PiaC, I can answer your question with a wholehearted Yes. I try to meditate for one hour a day at least, usually broken into two lots. and I can say that it is helping me in so many ways. I do not have any major health problems, but I am finding everything in my life so much easier to cope with.
Just allowing yourself some quite time to look for that inner silence and peace that is within us all can help with so many things. I myself am going through the menopause, and it is helping me with a lot of my symptoms, from mood changes and irritability to hot flushes. So I would advise everybody to try it.
