Veterans of the wars in Vietnam, Persian Gulf, Somalia, Iraq, and Afghanistan suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) found significant relief from their symptoms as a result of practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique, according to a new study led by Maharishi University of Management* alumnus Robert Herron and published recently in Military Medicine.

The 41 veterans and 5 active-duty soldiers in the study had been diagnosed with clinical levels of PTSD, as measured by the PTSD Checklist-Civilian (PCL-5). After one month, 87% had a clinically significant decrease of more than 10 points. The reduction was so great that 37 participants (80%) had their symptoms reduced to below the clinical level for PTSD.

''The evidence is mounting that Transcendental Meditation is an effective treatment for PTSD,'' said Colonel Brian Rees, MD, coauthor of the current study.
