Two studies were released in the past weeks which highlight the need for the Transcendental Meditation Programme to alleviate and prevent chronic mental disorders.
A Reuters report from 4 September revealed that nearly 40 per cent of Europeans suffer mental illness: Almost 165 million people, or 38 per cent of the population, suffer each year from a brain disorder such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, or dementia, according to a large new study. 'Mental disorders have become Europe's largest health challenge of the 21st century,' the study's authors said.
In contrast to this trend, a new paper by Dr Robert Herron, published in the American Journal of Health Promotion, shows that medical expenditures of 'high cost' people (those with consistently high health care costs) decreased 28 per cent over five years of practising the Transcendental Meditation (TM) Technique, compared to no significant change in matched high cost controls (who did not practise TM).
News and analysis of these studies were presented by Dr Peter Swan, Minister of Communication of the Global Country of World Peace. Dr Swan highlighted the many scientific research studies which have shown that Transcendental Meditation reduces health disorders such as anxiety, depression, and ADHD; improves memory, concentration, intelligence, relationships, quality of sleep; and also promotes whole brain functioning. This answers all the challenging trends noted in the Europe study, Dr Swan commented.
Further, experts emphasized the need to begin screening and treatment early to help prevent people developing these disabilities. This need is also specifically answered by programmes developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to introduce Transcendental Meditation in schools and higher education.
Dr Swan encouraged the introduction of Consciousness-Based Education, especially in light of the recent awarding of Free School status to Maharishi School in England by the UK Department for Education.
