Veterans of the Vietnam war who practised the Transcendental Meditation technique experienced reductions in alcohol usage, insomnia, and depression, an early pilot study found (Journal of Counseling and Development 64: 212-215, 1985).

As in a more recent pilot study of OIF/OEF veterans with PTS (see 'New research: Transcendental Meditation reduces symptoms...'), the Vietnam veterans experienced dramatic reductions in symptoms of PTS (post traumatic stress) and increased quality of life.

At the conclusion of the study, three months later, 70 percent of the Vietnam veterans found that they no longer required the services of the Denver Veterans Center where they were being treated.
