These studies, conducted by top universities and research centers, have found TM to have numerous health benefits.

What's the best thing I can do for my health?
The latest health trends constantly offer us the newest solution to health. But there is a very simple key to all round well-being: allow the inner intelligence of the body to do what it can re-establish balance and normal good health. Rest allows the body's natural healing mechanisms to function fully. When we do not get sufficiently deep rest, the body tends to function poorly and stress-related problems occur. It has been estimated that 80% of all doctor visits are for stress-related problems. Transcendental Meditation provides a state of profound rest that naturally dissolves even deeply rooted stress and fatigue, and thus helps to rejuvenate the body and enhance brain functioning.
"I learnt TM 25 years ago and without doubt it is the best thing I ever did. I have no idea how I would have managed as a full time GP without this technique to reduce stress and charge up my batteries. I have seen literally thousands of people gain benefit from TM and recommend it without hesitation."
Dr Elizabeth Young, GP
Beyond relaxing – from better health to personal growth
Transcendental Meditation is relaxing, but it is much more. It is a unique combination of deep relaxation along with expanded awareness. This state of "restful alertness" sets Transcendental Meditation apart from other relaxation techniques and tension relieving activities like exercise or music. After meditation, TM meditators report they feel calm, clear and energetic, much like you feel on your best days. TM can help create that experience throughout the day, every day. Transcendental Meditation can be useful in managing a wide range of conditions which are commonly stress-related, such as migraine, ulcers, high blood pressure, angina, asthma, anxiety, insomnia, and excessive use of alcohol, cigarettes, and non-prescribed drugs. With daily practice of Transcendental Meditation, vibrant health develops in the mind, body and emotions, leading to greater enjoyment, happiness and success.
Norman Rosenthal Psychiatrist, Author and Researcher
"Before our research was over, three of our clinicians had gotten Transcendental Meditation training. That's how impressed they were with what they saw.
No other stress management technique' has anywhere close to this amount of hard data in support of its claims to reduce stress."
