Meditation can reduce health care needs by 43%

Relaxation-response techniques, such as meditation, yoga, and prayer, could reduce the need for health care services by 43 percent, according to a study at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital  http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2015/10/relaxation-response-proves-positive/

That could mean it would make sense to fund meditation, yoga and prayer, thus lowering burden on the other aspects of healthcare system. Rather than treating the symptom, promoting a healthy lifestyle.
