A distinguished member of the worldwide medical community has been encouraging others in his profession to learn about and make use of clinical applications of Transcendental Meditation.

Norman Rosenthal, MD, is an acclaimed psychiatrist, researcher, and New York Times bestselling author. He is also a practitioner of Transcendental Meditation (TM) who, after conducting his own research into the technique, began recommending it to his patients and received excellent feedback.

Inspired by this success, Dr Rosenthal wrote the book Transcendence: Healing and Transformation through Transcendental Meditation, and began lecturing to physicians and other medical professionals about the technique's effectiveness.

In speaking about Transcendental Meditation Dr Rosenthal brings out the substantial body of research—over 600 scientific studies on the practice.

As Stuart Rothenberg, MD, National Director of the Transcendental Meditation Health Professionals Association (US), said, '[Dr Rosenthal] is one of the world's experts in the health applications of Transcendental Meditation.'

Dr Rothenberg went on to describe more about Dr Rosenthal's impressive career.

'Dr Rosenthal is clinical professor of psychiatry at Georgetown University Medical School. He was formerly senior researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health; it was there that he achieved renown by leading the team that first identified Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and pioneered the use of light therapy to treat it.

'Dr Rosenthal has been in the private practice of psychiatry in the Washington, DC, area for over 30 years where he treats a wide variety of psychiatric problems using many different forms of therapy.'

Dr Rosenthal was awarded the prestigious Anna-Monika Foundation Prize, Dr Rothenberg said. The prize is awarded bi-annually to clinical scientists who have made major contributions to the understanding of the underlying neurobiological mechanisms of depression.

Like other respected physicians, Dr Rosenthal has appeared in the limelight, having been a guest on 'the Today Show, Good Morning America, National Public Radio, and many other forums. He is the author, or coauthor, of over 200 professional articles and 5 popular books,' Dr Rothenberg said.
