Twice-daily meditation session increases arterial blood flow of black adolescents in study    Translate This Article
21 March 2005 is the latest news site to review the recently released research findings that twice-daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM) can increase the ability of blood vessels to dilate, allowing for increased arterial blood flow. The article noted that the findings suggest that 'people at risk for developing heart disease could use meditation as a way to maintain a healthy heart and better overall health'. 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.

In an eight-month study at the Medical College of Georgia, the group of black adolescents with 'high normal blood pressure' who were taught the simple mental technique of TM were able to let their blood vessels 'relax', increasing blood flow by 21 per cent. According to the researchers, this change could significantly reduce their risk of becoming adults with cardiovascular disease.

The non-meditating group of students with similar blood pressure saw a 4 per cent decrease in arterial blood flow over the same eight-month period.

Interestingly, no results were seen in either group during the first four months. Postive results in the meditation group came with longer-term, regular practice.

The study was presented at the 63rd Annual Scientific Conference of the American Psychosomatic Society in Vancouver March 2-5.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based— programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
