A top New Zealand television news show interviewed leading American heart researcher Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, this week during his current speaking tour in the country.
The segment on the 'Breakfast' news show was titled 'Meditating for your heart'. During the 4-minute interview, Dr Schneider talked with host Melissa Stokes about his recent research on Transcendental Meditation showing how the simple, stress-reducing meditation technique has a beneficial effect on the 'brain-heart connection'—promoting lower blood pressure and reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death.
Dr Schneider, who is Director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management, USA, also cited the April 2013 report from the American Heart Association recommending that Transcendental Meditation be considered in clinical practice for the prevention and treatment of hypertension.
