A new study, which offers a deeper understanding of the uniquely profound effect of the Transcendental Meditation Programme on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), is to be published in September.
Dr Sarina Grosswald, who directs the David Lynch Foundation's Office of ADHD, defined ADHD as impaired executive function of the brain and slower brain development. It affects almost 10% of children aged 4-17 years worldwide, and the number of children affected is increasing every year.
The first study on Transcendental Meditation and ADHD showed a 50% reduction in stress and a 24% reduction in total problems associated with ADHD, Dr Grosswald said. However, it used only subjective inventories to measure results.
The new study—even though small, with 20 participants—is much more powerful because in addition to being a randomized controlled trial, it uses both subjective questionnaires and objective EEG measurements.
Significant benefits were found both in reports from students and parents and in EEG measurements.
In the coming days, Global Good News will continue to report on this study.
