On 14 June 2005 The Seattle Times reported: Practising Transcendental Meditation may have benefits beyond stress reduction; it might actually help you live longer. The Seattle Times reported that this new finding has now been added to previous studies showing meditation can reduce risk factors associated with heart disease and other chronic illnesses. 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.

Five universities and medical centres including the Medical College of Georgia and the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine participated in the study of over 200 patients with high blood pressure.

Trial participants that practised Transcendental Meditation twice a day for 20 minutes had a 23 per cent lower death rate from all causes and nearly a third lower death rate from heart disease than those who did not, according the the Seattle Times article.

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

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.
