New research on the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM) for heart disease has inspired individuals in Great Britain to share their personal experiences with the technique.

Raja Peter Warburton, Raja of Invincible Great Britain for the Global Country of World Peace, recently read testimonials from several people whose health improved after beginning the practice of Transcendental Meditation.*

'Jessica, 54, a London public relations expert, discovered she had high blood pressure when she applied for health insurance. She was determined to reduce it, and tried everything, but it did not significantly go down until she started practising Transcendental Meditation regularly. The case exemplifies strong evidence showing a reduction in blood pressure among those who already have hypertension, and take up Transcendental Meditation,' Raja Peter read.

Another man, '[age] 55 from Oxford, had a heart attack in 1979, when he was relatively young, followed by frequent episodes of angina. He learned Transcendental Meditation from his GP who recommended it. The angina—heart pain—slowly subsided, then stopped altogether. His GP stopped his medication, and he has had no angina for thirty years.'

Raja Peter continued with a quote from the 55 year old man: 'Although I started Transcendental Meditation for medical reasons, I've carried on regularly for over 30 years because of the peace and harmony it brings to my life. The medical benefits are a bonus.'

A third testimonial, Raja Peter said, is from a 75 year old, Walter, 'who learned Transcendental Meditation after a quadruple bypass, and found it a key to recovering quickly, and living a full and active life since. Walter is a professor of business at a London college, and he's not the first person one might expect to learn meditation, but he feels that this is also a key tool for business people to avoid stress and use more of their full potential.'

The media in Great Britain have been reporting on the recent US studies,** Raja Peter said. Often the press likes to include a national angle, so testimonials and information for obtaining further interviews, were sent to newspapers and health editors throughout the country, along with a comprehensive press statement about the research.

* Raja Peter's report was featured on the 20 November 2009 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
