Previous studies have already shown that Transcendental Meditation helps to lower blood pressure. Recent studies show the technique may also work on other risk factors associated with coronary heart disease.
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 article reported that 'Maura Paul-Labrador, M.P.H., Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, and colleagues conducted a 16-week trial of Transcendental Meditation in patients with coronary heart disease.'
Yoga Online Blog also mentioned that 'at the end of the trial, patients in the Transcendental Meditation group had significantly lower blood pressure; improved fasting blood glucose and insulin levels, which signify reduced insulin resistance; and more stable functioning of the autonomic nervous system.'
The article quoted the study's authors saying that the results suggest 'Transcendental Meditation may modulate the response to stress rather than altering stress itself', and noted their conclusion that 'this method of controlling the body's response to stress may provide a new target for the treatment and prevention of coronary heart disease, warranting further study.'
The original study was reported in the 12 June issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine, according to Yoga Online Blog.
