In the United Kingdom, the latest research on the use of Transcendental Meditation in treating depression has been very effectively presented in major newspapers of the country. This follows an earlier wave of media interest prompted by another recent major study, showing almost 50% reduction in serious incidents of heart disease in those practising Transcendental Meditation.
A news release, entitled 'New Studies show reduced depression with Transcendental Meditation,' said that the technique 'may be an effective approach to reduce symptoms of depression, according to two new studies to be presented at the 31st annual meeting of the Society of Behavioral Medicine in Seattle, Washington, 9 April 2010.'
This story appeared in the British media, including the major newspapers, before the research was presented. This 'shows how alert the media are to stories about Transcendental Meditation; they link this with the previous news that came out about heart disease,' said Raja Peter Warburton,* Raja of Invincible Great Britain for the Global Country of World Peace.
'They basically say, ''Here's another good reason why we should be taking Transcendental Meditation seriously in the field of health.'' '
Raja Peter commented that these are major, well-controlled studies that 'put Transcendental Meditation on the map in terms of health in an extremely powerful manner'.
* Raja Peter spoke on the 9 April Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
