On 19 July 2017 reported: We live in traumatic times. . . . For veterans and victims of war and terror this can be life shattering. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) [is] a debilitating condition that can last for decades unless properly treated. One approach shown to be highly effective is Transcendental Meditation (TM) . . . . Ten studies published in professional journals have shown TM rapidly heals PTSD. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

Research began in the 1980s with Vietnam War veterans (Journal of Counseling and Development, 1985); in 2011 the journal Military Medicine reported a 40-55% reduction in PTSD in current war veterans . . . . TM has also proven effective with civilians suffering from PTSD. A study on female prisoners and two studies on Congolese war refugees with high levels of symptoms showed that within four months the majority became non-symptomatic. Ninety percent of the refugees became non-symptomatic within 30 days of learning and practicing TM (Journal of Traumatic Stress, April, 2013; February, 2014).

Research also indicates TM can increase resilience, and 'build up an inner immune system that keeps the stress from devastating us'.
