The lastest research results showing the positive benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme have made their way into the Indian media. Asian News International, along with Netindia123 and Dr NDTV, two Indian online information sites, carried articles on the research. The Central Chronicle in Bhopal, India also ran a story on the benefits of TM. 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.
NetIndia123 posted an article reporting that adolescents with high blood pressure who practise Transcendental Meditation face a lesser risk of a heart attack. The article quoted lead researcher on the study, Dr Vernon Barnes, as saying, 'We know this type of change is achievable with lipid lowering drugs, but it's remarkable that a meditation programme can produce such a change.' He went on to observe, 'If this improvement...can be replicated in other at-risk groups and cardiovascular disease patients, this could have important implications for inclusion of meditation programmes to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease and its clinical consequences.'
Dr. NDTV reported that researchers from the Maharishi University of Management in Iowa found that one can lower blood pressure naturally using a particular mind-body technique, Transcendental Meditation.
The article also noted that TM also had a holistic effect. In addition to lowered blood pressure, some study participants said their psychological health and well-being also improved.
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.
