On 20 June 2018 Equinox reported: Bob Roth, CEO of the David Lynch Foundation, a non-profit that teaches Transcendental Meditation . . . . believes that the epidemic of modern stress is literally killing us—and could be the cause of up to 80 percent of illnesses and disorders. And while there's no magic pill, meditation can be one tool for fighting back, and quieting the mind despite all the worry, fear, and anxiety we're faced with daily. And research backs this up. 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.

June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness month. . . . High levels of cortisol fuel anxiety, compromise the immune system, and actually undermine memory, the hippocampus, [Roth said]. When you get a good night's sleep, cortisol levels drop about 10 percent. In 20 minutes of Transcendental Meditation, cortisol levels drop 30 to 40 percent and remain low afterwards. So this is why we encourage people to meditate at any time during their life. . . .
For health, it's not just attending to the neck down. And so you could look at TM as an effortless exercise to bring the whole brain into peak performance.
