Prominent American researcher Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, is coming to New Zealand this month to explain the health benefits of Transcendental Meditation practice.

The New Zealand Herald reports that Dr Schneider will give presentations to doctors and to the public in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch from 6 to 9 October. ''I wish to tell New Zealand doctors why the American Heart Association is now recommending Transcendental Meditation,'' said Dr Schneider from his home in Iowa, USA. ''My message to the public is simple. Learn TM to lower high blood pressure and reduce heart disease.''

According to the New Zealand Heart Foundation, cardiovascular disease (heart disease, stroke, and blood vessel disease) is still the leading cause of death in New Zealand, accounting for 40% of deaths annually. A recent study from the US points to a surprisingly easy, natural prevention method.

This recently published study found that people who regularly practice Transcendental Meditation (TM) have 48% less deaths, heart attacks, and strokes. The resulting report published by the American Heart Association is a huge step forward in the evolution of medical practice—informing physicians which alternative approaches to lowering blood pressure have been shown by research to be effective.
