Tum-mo and Her Zen Stick

Scientists studying Tibetan monks found that by using an advanced yoga and meditation technique called Tum-mo, the monks can actually raise their body temperature.
The barely clothed monks were able to generate enough heat to dry large sheets soaked in cold water in less than an hour, in a room where the temperature hovered around 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Scientists found that some of the monks were capable of raising the temperature in their fingers and toes by 17 degrees.
Every day we're assaulted by sights, sounds, smells and other sensations. You need a meditation tool that will immediately focus all your senses on one thing.
Even though most people won't be able to raise their body temperature without years of meditation training, simple meditation techniques can help them master their bodies. According to Laurie Desjardins, meditation expert and creator of the Zen Stick meditation tool (, this mind-body mastery could help people reduce stress and strengthen their immune systems.
"In drug trials, even people who are given placebos show a physical reaction, depending on what the researchers tell them it will do," Desjardins said. "Positive thinking has a powerful effect on us, mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Meditation can really benefit people's overall health."
Desjardins believes that even the busiest people can find the time for a brief meditation each day, and that making it a habit can lead to a happier outlook and a healthier life. Her Zen Stick meditation tool is designed to help people enter a meditative state quickly.(more bs HERE)
