On 17 May 2005 reported: The simple mental technique of Transcendental Meditation has been found to lengthen the lifespan. Research that has tracked 202 patients with high blood pressure for as long as 18 years has found that participants who practised Transcendental Meditation had a 23 per cent lower death rate from all causes and nearly a one-third lower death rate from heart disease than non-meditators. 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.

Dr Robert Schneider, director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, is the principal author of the study.

The small study, paid for by the National Institutes of Health, was published on 2 May in the American Journal of Cardiology. Based on this trial, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly why meditation lowers death rates, but there are numerous studies that have shown meditation reduces risk factors associated with heart disease.

'This paints a strong picture of how (Transcendental Meditation) can restore the body and promote better health in the long term,' said Dr Schneider.

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.
