Christchurch doctor backs Transcendental Meditation - New Zealand    Translate This Article
19 June 2013

On 19 June 2013 (New Zealand) reported: A Christchurch, New Zealand, doctor is endorsing a recent report issued by the American Heart Association which encourages the use of Transcendental Meditation in clinical practice for the treatment of hypertension in the prevention of heart attack and strokes. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

The purpose of the report, entitled ''Beyond Medications and Diet — Alternative Approaches to Lowering Blood Pressure: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association,'' is to inform physicians which alternative approaches to lowering blood pressure have been shown by research to be effective.

After considering meta-analyses and the latest clinical trials on different types of meditation, the AHA report found that while the Transcendental Meditation technique is endorsed in the lowering of high blood pressure, there is insufficient evidence to recommend other meditation or relaxation techniques for that purpose.

Christchurch GP, Dr David Lovell-Smith, has previously documented the clinical role of Transcendental Meditation (known as TM for short) in his book Perfect Blood Pressure Naturally and for many years has recommended the technique to his patients as a side-effect free method to reduce stress and improve wellbeing.
