On 18 July 2013 ABC News - Australia reported: In the United States and Australia, PTSD is an unfolding generational catastrophe affecting an estimated 20 to 30 per cent of war veterans. Like many others, US war veteran Jason Lebrecht struggled with anxiety, loneliness, and depression. Eventually he found the answer to his problems lay within, and now is one of a growing number of damaged veterans turning to meditation, in particular Transcendental Meditation. 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.
Dr Sarina Grosswald is just one of a growing number of researchers who champion Transcendental Meditation as an effective treatment for PTSD. She is working with the US veterans' administration on two research projects. ''The social workers that we work with say they haven't seen anything that works this effectively and this quickly, so we're seeing very, very dramatic results,'' she said.
Dr Renee Ireland is now working on an Australian study into TM and PTSD, set to get underway next year.
