On 11 July 2013 Sydney Morning Herald reported: Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder can be treated with Transcendental Meditation, says a leading US expert on the practice. 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 defence.

Speaking in Sydney, Australia, last month during a four-city tour across the country, Dr Fred Travis of Maharishi University of Management in Iowa cited three US studies showing that the meditation technique can have remarkable results, the Sydney Morning Herald article reported. For example, Transcendental Meditation helped to reverse the effects of PTSD in Vietnam veterans very soon after they learned the practice. ''The very foundations of the problems of PTSD are turned off,'' he commented.

Also noting a $2.4 million grant from the US Department of Defence for research on the use of meditation to help veterans from the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts cope with stress, Dr Travis believes its application with Australian Defence Force staff should also be investigated.
