Sarina Grosswald, Ed.D., a George Washington University–trained cognitive researcher, shares recent evidence highlighting the effectiveness of the Transcendental Meditation technique as a treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and its co-morbidities.
According to Dr. Grosswald, research shows that Transcendental Meditation practice results in significant drops in PTS symptoms, a 40 percent decrease in cardiovascular mortality, and increased quality of life.
Dr. Grosswald showcases the results of a recent study on TM and cardiovascular disease: ''After three months of TM practice, researchers found a 40 percent lower risk of heart attack, stroke, or mortality. And among the high stress group, a dramatic 70 percent reduction.''
Dr. Grosswald concludes by calling for the use of Transcendental Meditation in the treatment of PTS: 'We can see very clearly that there's a strong scientific foundation for the use of the Transcendental Meditation program for treating the symptoms of combat stress and post-traumatic stress. And this is a resource and a tool that can be very beneficial in the various approaches to treating PTS.'
