On 7 February 2007 The Seattle Times reported: A 'functional' MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) study suggests that Transcendental Meditation may offer a prescription-free way to reduce pain. 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 Seattle Times explained that 'functional' MRI scans are a new application of the non-invasive imaging test and can be used to 'see how blood flow to the brain changes as you think'; it is a new way of monitoring brain activity.

A recent research study using functional MRI showed that people who practise Transcendental Meditation™ have a 40 to 50 per cent lower brain response to pain than people who do not practise meditation.

The Seattle Times reported that the study suggested a prescription-free way to relieve pain, particularly offerring hope to sufferrers of chronic pain—an estimated 35 per cent of the adult population—through the practice of TM.

The article also stated that the advantage of TM over other kinds of meditation is the extensive research supporting it as well as its standardized method of instruction.

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.
