The Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM) saved her son's life, the mother of an Iraq war veteran said.

When her son returned from Iraq, 'he was out of his mind from the effects of the war', she said.

He turned to alcohol to relieve his symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and 'he had many car accidents because he was drinking,' his mother said.

For years she lived in fear for his safety. 'I was afraid many times he would kill himself . . . .' she continued.

'When he found Transcendental Meditation he changed his way of thinking. He started appreciating his life.

'He's another person; he's normal. He's thinking about his future. He's respecting—more than anything—respecting himself, loving himself.

'Thanks to the Transcendental Meditation he's not drinking. He is happy. It's beautiful. It's incredible.

'That is the boy that I raised. TM saved his life,' she said.

In the coming days Global Good News will feature comments from her son about his experience with Transcendental Meditation.
