On 9 March 2007 Ivanhoe Newswire reported: Transcendental Meditation can be effective in improving the quality of life and functional capacity of African American patients with congestive heart failure, a new study reveals. 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.

A group of African Americans at risk for heart failure were divided into two groups. The half of the group that used the Transcendental Meditation technique for six months showed 'significant improvement on a six-minute walk test compared to the non-meditation group.'

The meditator group also had fewer rehospitalizations, the study showed.

Ivanhoe reported, 'Senior author Robert Schneider, M.D., from the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, told Ivanhoe heart failure is a major health problem in the United States. 'If we can do something about it where modern medicine can't, that's a major contribution to medicine,' Dr. Schneider said.'

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.
