General practitioner finds 'Transcendental Meditation helps with treating hypertension'    Translate This Article
22 December 2011

''Transcendental Meditation (TM) helps with treating hypertension,'' says Dr Elizabeth Young, a GP (general practitioner) in London, England. ''It is my experience that people with hypertension who learn TM not only feel better and happier, but their blood pressure is easier to control and I've been able to slowly reduce—and in a few cases even stop—their medication over time.''

Dr Young goes on to say, ''There's no doubt that drugs have made a big impact on the treatment of coronary heart diseases, but still the greatest challenge is to find non-drug ways to help people improve their health habits, in terms of diet, exercise, smoking, in ways that will improve their health.

''Once people learn TM, we notice that they start to choose more healthy lifestyles and more healthy habits, and that they find it easier to give up smoking—and that alone would have a dramatic effect on heart disease. It's very rare to find someone who practises TM regularly and still smokes.''
