Japa, which is the meditative recitation of sacred sounds and chants, can help to boost your immune system and relax the mind, which is incredibly important for healing.

Hinduism, Buddhism and yoga mantras for health and healing
These healing mantras for diabetes, blood pressure and heart disease are Tantrik treatments. They will cure health issues when chanted. Let’s begin with one of the oldest and most sacred.
VUNG — This is the best mantra for blood pressure
Take a look at this article about meditation and high blood pressure.
Traditionally it was said that to practice this mantra you must be holding rudraksha beads. You must then recite “Vung” one thousand times. This will correct blood pressure (for both low blood pressure and high blood pressure).
Use this one in the morning and after work, while facing north. Recite it every day for one month. For best results perform outside.
Healing Mantra for Heart Disease: Om Hrung Joong Shah
This one should be repeated 500 times a day before sunrise and after sunset.
It will only work in the early stages of heart disease. You must wear a Rudraksha Mala while chanting. Use Om Hrung Joong Shah consistently for 15 days to cure heart disease.

Benefits of mantras for health and healing
Mantras heal the body and mind by promoting relaxation, stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, and helping with the physiological symptoms of stress and anxiety, as well as the specific spiritual benefits of each individual mantra.
Unfortunately, there is a lack of science to back-up the idea that mantras can heal the body. However, much research has shown the health benefits of meditation, and mantras are one form of meditation. As well as mantras there are also self-healing meditations.
Because of the lack of scientific research, I do strongly recommend consulting a healthcare professional as well as using the chants I have shared below.
Spiritually speaking, people have been using mantras for health and healing for thousands of years, and there are many ancient texts that discuss the health benefits of chanting. Buddhist and Hindu texts, as well as many yoga books, discuss the health benefits of mantras. And there has been much scientific research on the health benefits of sound healing too [READ: Sound Healing Guide].
A matter of vibration (humming)
Chanting sacred sounds and phrases creates vibrations in the body through the movement of air. This is the same as when we hum. And science has shown that humming does have proven health benefits.
In The Humming Effect, Jonathan Goldman says:
“When you bring your conscious attention to the practice of humming, it becomes an extraordinary vehicle for healing and transformation. Humming is easy and has marvellous beneficial effects, from lowering blood pressure and heart rate to stimulating the release of vital hormones such as melatonin and nitrus oxidde.
When you use the mantras for health and healing above, you also take advantage of these benefits of humming.
Here are 12 benefits of humming
- Grounds us. When I’m running about like a total loon, I hum to bring myself back to the moment.
- Clears the sinuses (you can actually feel this happening).
- Relaxes the muscles.
- Stops us thinking too much (because we focus on the humming rather than on our thoughts)
- Is a pleasant tune makes us happy and joyful (try humming Jingle Bells without smiling, I dare you).
- Slows down your breathing. So when you see that the rent is due and you panic, hum! Works for me!
- Relaxes the mind before bed (and we all know how important good sleep is for healing)
- Humming stimulates the parasynthetic nervous system 
- Humming reduces blood pressure between 10 – 20 mmHg
- Humming improves dental hygiene because vibrations in the mouth help move food particles.
