Health

“ Extensive research published in peer-reviewed medical journals shows this technique markedly improves overall health. If you can do something for 15 to 20 minutes twice a day that reduces stress and allows you to be more creative and dynamic in your activity—you have a key to better health.”
Gary Kaplan, M.D, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology, Hofstra University School of Medicine

Patients with high blood pressure who learned the Transcendental Meditation program showed a significant reduction of systolic and diastolic blood pressure after three months, in contrast to those randomly assigned to a control technique or to those who received health education on how to reduce blood pressure through diet and exercise. Reference: Hypertension 26: 820–827, 1995.

“No other meditation or relaxation technique produces the same kind or degree of comprehensive results as the TM programme. It is the most well-documented and scientifically proven technique available for reducing hypertension and improving cardiovascular health without adverse side-effects.”
Dr. John Zamarra, Cardiologist, Fullerton, California, USA

A statistical meta-analysis of 146 independent study results found that the Transcendental Meditation program is significantly more effective in reducing trait anxiety than concentration or contemplation, or other techniques. Reference: Journal of Clinical Psychology 45: 957–974, 1989.

“I encourage all my patients to practise Transcendental Meditation. Experience shows, and research confirms, that it is the best vaccine against stress-related conditions. Regular practice keeps you inwardly settled despite being surrounded by chaos.”
Dr. Donn Brennan (MRCGP), General Practitioner, Ireland

A study of patients seeking treatment for post-traumatic stress problems found that those who learned the Transcendental Meditation program showed significant reduction in insomnia after four months, in contrast to those randomly assigned to receive psychotherapy. Reference: Journal of Counseling and Development 64: 212–215, 1985.

“Numerous comparative research studies have found TM to be twice as effective as other techniques in reducing anxiety, high blood pressure and overall cardiovascular disease and increasing longevity.”
Dr. Nancy Lonsdorf, USA

A study of medical utilization and expenditures found that those who participated in the Maharishi Consciousness-Based Approach to Health, which includes practice of the Transcendental Meditation program, showed greatly reduced hospital stays, outpatient hospital visits, and overall medical expenditures in comparison to norms. Reference: The American Journal of Managed Care 3: 135–144, 1997.

"I learnt TM 25 years ago and without doubt it is the best thing I ever did. I have regularly practised the technique every morning and every evening and continue to gain great benefit. After practising TM I feel refreshed and ready to tackle life's problems, and have no idea how I would have managed as a full time GP without this technique to reduce stress and charge up my batteries. I have seen literally thousands of people gain benefit from TM and recommend it without hesitation."
Dr Elizabeth Young, GP, London
