On 17 June 2016 Police One.com reported: PoliceOne has investigated the practice of meditation and its impact and healing properties on those living with PTSD.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health published a study in 2007 about the effects of Transcendental Meditation on Vietnam veterans who suffer from PTSD. The study, which took place over the course of three months, found that symptoms such as alcohol use, high-startle response, emotional numbness and anxiety decreased in those who used Transcendental Meditation to treat PTSD. The study concluded by stating that ''Transcendental Meditation should be considered a possible 'new and improved mode of treatment' for PTSD.''

Ms Wells continues, ''The best part about meditation is that it can be done anywhere. You can practice at home, sitting in your car prior to starting a shift or anywhere else you feel comfortable. It can be done in a matter of minutes, too.
''One of the most popular resources for Transcendental Meditation is the David Lynch Foundation. This group recommends 20 minutes of practice each day for optimal success. The foundation also recommends finding a teacher to help initially learn the practice, but once you've had guidance, you can start practicing alone.''
