On January 19, healthcare professionals around the country tuned in online to watch Transcendental Meditation, Stress, and Heart Health—a webinar featuring two leading experts on the Transcendental Meditation technique's benefits in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease.

Hosted by the TM Health Professionals Association, this powerful presentation was led by Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention, and César Molina, MD, FACC, a board-certified cardiologist practicing in the Palo Alto area.

Although it was originally offered for physicians and other health professionals—especially those treating patients suffering from stress-related disorders and cardiovascular disease—the video archive offers useful heart health information for anyone with an interest in the topic.

In the video above, Dr. Schneider and Dr. Molina share cutting-edge research and expert perspectives on a wide range of topics, including the dramatic findings from a recently published, NIH-funded heart health study at the Medical College of Wisconsin in the United States.*

You'll also learn about: the clinical experience in a large cardiology practice in which patients are regularly referred for Transcendental Meditation instruction; how referrals for TM instruction can be handled efficiently and professionally in a busy medical practice; and more.
