Mindfulness meditation focuses attention on breathing to develop increased awareness of the present. Previous research has demonstrated that mindfulness mediation may reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and chronic pain, but little is known about its effects on the brain.

    7. In the News: Echinacea for the Common Cold

      In the News: Echinacea for the Common Cold
      Echinacea is an herb that has traditionally been used to treat or prevent colds, flu, and other infections. According to the 2007 NHIS, echinacea was the most commonly used natural nonvitamin/nonmineral supplement among children, and the third most commonly used supplement among adults. These products vary widely, using different echinacea species, plant parts, and preparations. The many clinical trials of echinacea for colds have also varied widely, in terms of products studied, research methodology, and study results. Recently, an NCCAM-funded study in the Annals of Internal Medicine concluded that echinacea had no effect on reducing the severity or length of the common cold. People who are using or are considering using dietary supplements, including echinacea, should discuss this decision with their health care provider.
