On 18 April 2005 National Electronic Library for Health reported: An article in the Daily Express reported that practising the Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM) can lower blood pressure. The write-up went on to offer information on where the study was done, what the objectives were, and evaluated the reliability of the results and concluded that, 'The study seems to be a well-conducted randomised controlled trial in older African Americans.' 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 government.

The report summarized the the article, noting that the study showed that if you practise TM for three months, your blood pressure will drop to the same level as if you took drugs, but without the side effects. They went on to say that the article was based on a well-conducted RCT comparing TM to another stress reduction technique (progressive muscle relaxation) and a lifestyle modification education control programme. However, the write up noted, while TM was found to lower blood pressure more than the other two treatments, it was not compared directly to antihypertensive drugs.

The overview described the Transcendental Meditation Technique as the principal approach for stress management and self-development of Maharishi Ayur-Veda, 'a system of natural health care derived from the ancient Vedic approach to health.'

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
