Nancy Lonsdorf, M.D., is a graduate of Stanford University and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She is a nationally renowned specialist in natural health and women's health issues. The author of The Ageless Woman: Natural Health and Beauty After Forty, she has been featured frequently in the national media in the US, including National Public Radio, CNN, and The Phil Donahue Show.
In a statement on the tmwomenprofessionals.org website, Dr Lonsdorf says: 'When we're tired, we don't think as clearly, are more distractible, and take longer to complete our tasks. We also may stay up too late trying to finish off what didn't get done during the day. This ends up creating a vicious cycle of fatigue, lack of rest, too much activity, and more fatigue.'
She says that taking the Transcendental Meditation course is the number one recommendation she makes to all her patients 'because it eliminates stress—the root of most ill health. The Transcendental Meditation practice brings about what no pill ever will—vital health, mental clarity, and boundless creativity from within.'
Dr. Lonsdorf also addresses the value of the Transcendental Meditation program for menopausal and post-menopausal women: 'Stress is a trigger for, and major contributor to, common menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and sleep problems,' she says. 'The Transcendental Meditation program has been shown to reduce anxiety twice as effectively as other relaxation and meditation techniques and is highly effective at reducing stress.
'Practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique for twenty minutes twice a day,' Dr Lonsdorf says, 'has been shown to lower cortisol (a stress hormone), improve sleep and lift mood. According to some researchers, curbing excess cortisol production might also support the body's production of helpful reproductive hormones such as progesterone.
'In addition, research on postmenopausal women has shown that the Transcendental Meditation technique reduces heart attack risk as well as metabolic syndrome, a precursor to diabetes.
This meditation technique has helped alleviate mood swings and menopausal symptoms in many of her patients in midlife, Dr Lonsdorf says, 'while helping smooth their emotional transition through a time that can be challenging in many ways. For all these reasons, I highly recommend Transcendental Meditation instruction as part of a comprehensive approach to managing menopausal symptoms.'
