Transcendental Meditation: Evidence-based solution for post-traumatic stress dilemma
14 April 2014 - Over half a million U.S. troops suffer from stress-induced problems like Post-traumatic Stress (PTS).

Experts acknowledge that PTS has generally been highly resistant to many conventional approaches. The authors, however, cite 'a highly effective alternative approach. . . . We suggest that more attention be given to the large body of evidence supporting the Transcendental Meditation programme.' (more)
