On 31 October 2015 Heart MD Institute reported: ''One technique that I often recommended to highly-stressed patients, and one I have practiced for years, is Transcendental Meditation (TM). Multiple studies over many years show that TM superbly calms the stress of wired-up, burnt-out, anxious, and depressed civilians.'' 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.

Cardiologist Dr Stephen Sinatra cites several published studies on TM and PTSD: ''In 2011, the journal Military Medicine published a study showing effectiveness in reducing PTSD in veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. Participants had a 50 percent reduction of symptoms after just eight weeks of meditation.

''And back in 1985, a report in the Journal of Counseling and Development demonstrated a significant reduction of symptoms among Vietnam War veterans practicing TM for at least three months. A comparison group utilizing psychotherapy was found to have had no significant improvements during the same time period.''
