On 9 December 2015 The Hill reported: 'Research has shown that the practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM) generates significant reductions in PTSD [post-traumatic stress disorder] symptoms and in a short period of time. . . . The Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration have worked hard to address PTSD, but in the United States we have frequently medicalized what is essentially a moral/spiritual injury. Resolution may lie in the benefits generated by something simple and broadly effective such as TM, where individuals can find quick and easy access to inner calm, stress release, and even bliss.' 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 world peace.
Compared with conventional approaches to PTSD, 'TM practice apparently goes deeper. It provides a broader spectrum of benefits, including increases in ego development, executive functioning, personality integration, creativity, problem-solving abilities and intelligence—improvements well beyond disorder-specific symptom reduction,' write coauthors USA Col. Brian Rees (ret.), MD, MPH, David O'Connell, PhD, and David Leffler, PhD, in The Hill's Congress Blog.
