On 17 March TheFix.com reported: Among [Transcendental Meditation's] greatest proponents are military veterans who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, who say TM has dramatically changed their lives for the better. Transcendental Meditation has even been found to reduce the reliance on psychotropic medication for some veterans. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.
While some were skeptical of TM, many have credited meditation with helping them recover, and improving their health and their relationships. ''All that feeling of stress and heaviness, I can feel it melt away,'' said one vet.

The TM practice, 20 minutes twice per day, ''takes users from a level of active thinking to a state of inner quietness that reduces levels of stress hormones and activation of the sympathetic nervous system, which drives the so-called fight-or-flight response by increasing heart rate and blood pressure,'' according to a 2016 press release by the Medical College of Georgia.
