On 20 January 2018 Psych Central reported: A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Military Medicine shows that veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) found significant relief from their symptoms as a result of practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM). 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.
After one month, the reduction was so great that 80% of the participants had their symptoms reduced to below the clinical level, meaning that they were no longer considered to have a disorder, researchers reported.
According to the researchers, an interesting facet of the study was that the veterans were recruited through media advertising rather than through a veterans hospital.
''The importance of this study is that it shows that veterans are able to help themselves,'' said lead author Robert Herron, Ph.D. ''After learning about the opportunity to participate in the study, they went to local Transcendental Meditation centers to be instructed in the practice. . . . [They] were pleased that they were able to do this on their own, and no doubt the VA hospitals appreciate that there are therapeutic approaches that can be undertaken without the costly intensive care of a therapist that treatment typically entails,' he said.
