On 1 November 2005 NewKerala.com reported:
Relaxation is a vital tool in dealing with the high stress levels of modern society which are taking a heavy toll on the physiology, emotions, and psychology of people around the globe. The Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM), along with other natural approaches such as Yoga, and breathing techniques, were recommended as helpful ways to achieve relaxation and thus improve health and happiness.
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.
The newKerala.com article cited a number of negative effects of stress. Not only is heart disease said to be linked to increased anger and irritablility, but also are stress-produced hormones that suppress the immune system. According to the article, 'relaxation lowers the activities within the brain's limbic system', the emotional centre of our brain.
In speaking about TM, the article noted that the mental technique has been shown to reduce artery blockage, which is a major cause of heart attack and stroke. 'The researchers found that practitioners of Transcendental Meditation significantly reduced the thickness of their arterial walls compared with those who didn't practice Transcendental Meditation.'
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.
