From the 'Word to the Wise' Department: The Transcendental Meditation technique improves immunity and reduces stress
19 April 2020 - This is a time of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty for most of the world. Health, families, careers, finances, and well-being are being challenged by the pandemic. This stress can only make us more vulnerable - because stress reduces immunity. Want to be pro-active in protecting yourself? Follow directions from health officials on hygiene and personal social distancing and be sure to rest, exercise, and eat a healthy diet. And learn the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique because it significantly calms the mind, reduces stress and improves immunity. Medical studies have shown that individuals who practise TM daily had lower blood levels of the primary stress hormones epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol; the technique also causes a beneficial modulation of the immune system.

A veteran's journey inward: Rewiring your brain for clearer, calmer thinking
1 March 2020 - Bob Ouellette was an explosive ordnance disposal specialist in the US Army as terrorism tensions escalated in the post-Desert Storm era. Such pressure, he later discovered, had a way of rewiring his brain: 'I exhibited all those signs of PTSD.' Transcendental Meditation (TM) was seemingly a counter-intuitive approach for a veteran whose specialty required intense, high-stress precision and focus. But on learning the technique about six years ago, he says, 'it just enabled me to relax. Creativity, workload - it seems you're able to handle more, do more. And it's not stressful.' The American Legion Magazine reports on a three-year US Department of Defense-funded study, published in the prestigious Lancet Psychiatry journal in 2018, indicating that 61 percent of veterans in the programme experienced clinically meaningful improvements in PTSD symptoms by using TM.
