Doctors are Prescribing "Mindfulness" for Fibromyalgia

Meditation should be prescribed with caution

For meditation, it should not be prescribed to a patient without a thorough assessment. It can cause temporary psychosis and hallucinations and negative thinking, so it is not recommended for some mental disorders.

This organization of experts does not say that meditation shouldn't be suggested. However, they think that recommending it should be done responsibly, carefully, and systematically, which is just like any medical treatment given. Researchers and doctors should not be swayed by the hype of alternative treatments.
