On 1 June 2011 The Epoch Times reported:
Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars showed a 50 percent improvement in their post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following eight weeks of practicing Transcendental Meditation, researchers report in this month's issue of Military Medicine.
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.
Five veterans who had engaged in combat for 10 months to two years in Iraq and/or Afghanistan learned the Transcendental Meditation technique and then were evaluated using the Clinician Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS). All showed significant improvement in their CAPS scores.
Even for a small study, says lead researcher Norman E. Rosenthal, M.D.,* ''the results were very impressive. These young men were in extreme distress as a direct result of trauma suffered during combat, and the simple and effortless Transcendental Meditation technique literally transformed their lives.''
