On 16 December 2008 Parade Magazine reported: The National Institutes of Health estimates that Americans spend between US$36 billion and $47 billion out of pocket each year on alternative therapies that they consider important in taking care of their health. Research on the Transcendental Meditation Programme shows how the practice is effective in promoting heart health as well as in calming the mind. 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.

The article discussed Transcendental Meditation in the context of 'three commonly used mind-body therapies that have scientific backing and have passed the litmus test of rigorous medical inquiry'—acupuncture, a traditional Chinese practice that deals with the flow of energy; biofeedback, a relatively new technique designed to use the brain to control 'automatic' functions of the body; and meditation.

The article described Transcendental Meditation (TM) as the 'most popular method' of meditation, and noted several scientific research results [among many published studies on the practice].

Included in the article were indications of 'positive effects on blood pressure, insulin, blood sugar, and heart health. It also can improve concentration, reduce anxiety, and help with post-traumatic stress.'

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.
