To manage stress and find the inner strength to deal with a serious illness, many women find that learning the Transcendental Meditation technique is a key factor. Not only does the practice provide deep relaxation and calm, but also the energy, intuition, and clarity of mind to face the challenges of fighting for one's life.
Fear, anxiety, and confusion often accompany the diagnosis of cancer or any life threatening disease. Being able to take charge of one's emotions and navigate through treatment options and lifestyle changes is essential for a speedy recovery.
A recent study gives encouragement for women with breast cancer for improving their ability to manage stress and find solace from within.
Research: Transcendental Meditation and cancer
Published in the peer‐reviewed journal Integrative Cancer Therapies,1 the study found that women with breast cancer experienced reduced stress and improved mental health and emotional well-being through the course of their illness by practicing the TM technique.
''It is wonderful that physicians now have a range of interventions to use, including Transcendental Meditation, to benefit their patients with cancer,'' said Rhoda Pomerantz, M.D., study co‐author and chief of gerontology, Saint Joseph Hospital in Chicago. ''I believe this approach should be appreciated and utilized more widely.''
Global Good News will continue to feature the positive effects of Transcendental Meditation for women with breast cancer, and their families.
