Scientific research on the Transcendental Meditation Programme has shown increased exercise tolerance in patients with coronary artery disease, indicating improved cardiovascular health.

A study originally published in the American Journal of Cardiology in 1996 is one of 94 included in Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers Volume 6.

Participants were measured when the study began and again after several months.

'Their blood flow was quite restricted due to arterial blockage,' said Dr Michael Dillbeck, an expert on Transcendental Meditation research, who is one of the editors of Collected Papers Volume 5, and the editor of Volume 6. 'When that happens then there is pain, particularly coming from exercise, because there is not enough blood flow.'

The study examined how much exercise could be tolerated before there was discomfort.

The research showed 'a very dramatic increase in exercise tolerance among those who learned Transcendental Meditation compared to the controls who did not learn the practice,' Dr Dillbeck said.

In the coming days, Global Good News will continue to feature Dr Dillbeck's report highlighting studies from Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers Volume 6.
