On 19 February 2011 The Huffington Post reported:
The Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM) shows promise as a solution to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
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.
Last summer, the technique was featured, along with yoga, in an article in Military Officer of America, in which medical consultant Sarina Grosswald is quoted as saying: 'T.M. addresses not just the mental issues of P.T.S.D., but also the physical problems that accompany stress disorders, including hypertension and heart disease. There are many years of research showing the effectiveness of T.M. in reducing stress and anxiety and improving well-being and mental outlook.'
The Huffington Post reports that 'T.M. is a stress-relieving technique that has practical applications in business and most other walks of life.'
Transcendental Meditation Teacher John Zisman says that during his 20 years in real estate 'T.M. helped me to stay focused, feel refreshed and gave me that edge to succeed through clearer thinking and feeling less stress and pressure.'
Mr Zisman 'is participating in a national outreach to help soldiers with P.T.S.D,' the Huffington Post reports. The outreach programme, called Operation Warrior Wellness, was launched in December 2010 by the David Lynch Foundation and aims to offer Transcendental Meditation to 10,000 veterans with PTSD.
The Huffington Post article concludes by recommending 'both T.M. and yoga for businesspersons, veterans, high achievers and anyone else who wants to make life more enjoyable'.
