Dr. Sarina Grosswald is a leading researcher and educator in using the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique to bring relief to people with PTSD and ADHD. She is an Advisory Board Member for the David Lynch Foundation (DLF) and Director of Research for DLF's Operation Warrior Wellness. Following is an excerpt from a recent interview with Rolf Erickson, co-editor of Transcendental Meditation Magazine:

Rolf Erickson: How did you get started creating Continuing Medical Education programs on the benefits of TM?

Dr. Sarina Grosswald:
My background is in medical education, which includes developing Continuing Medical Education (CME) programs for physicians. I wondered, ''Why aren't physicians recommending TM to their patients, at least for hypertension?'' I realized that they need to get information on the benefits of TM the same way they get any other new information, and that's through CME.

Research is published in scientific journals, but a very small percentage of physicians read all the articles in those journals. Getting the research published is great, but it doesn't reach the physicians in a broad way unless it gets picked up by the media.

So I began developing online CME programs for physicians related to the benefits of TM for health. The first program I developed was on TM and hypertension, and the second addressed Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.


Dr Grosswald goes on to discuss research she helped develop on the application of Transcendental Meditation to help veterans and others suffering from PTSD, as well as children with ADHD, autism, and Asperger's.
