TM - a natural solution to ease anxiety and depression
Both anxiety and depression are extremely common, yet a simple solution may be at hand.
Transcendental Meditation is an effortless and natural technique that can help end the self-perpetuating cycle of stress, anxiety and depression.
Scientific research has shown that the special quality of rest gained from Transcendental Meditation settles both mind and body, and the nervous reaction to stress is lessened. Subsequently many of the symptoms that you may experience, including worry, panic attacks, bipolar swings, social anxiety and phobia decrease and can become a thing of the past.
Whether your symptoms have resulted from stressful or disheartening events or circumstances, or whether they always seem to have been there, sustained regular practice of Transcendental Meditation can in time help you deal effectively with anxiety and depression.

This analysis of all 146 published studies on relaxation and anxiety showed that Transcendental Meditation was twice as effective in reducing anxiety as other techniques including the relaxation response, systematic muscular relaxation, and muscle biofeedback. Journal of Clinical Psychology.
How TM relieves stress
Bernadette van den Hout
"The profound relaxation, and the ease with which people adopt this technique – which is so simple to learn no matter what background, intellect or age – makes Transcendental Meditation stand out from other relaxation techniques. The special state of restful alertness that it produces accounts for the profound effects of Transcendental Meditation on physiology, mind, and emotions – including anxiety and depression."
A London GP's experience ...
"In my years as a GP I found TM to be a dignified form of self help for my patients, who often reported benefits such as reduced anxiety, less sense of stress, better sleep, improved wellbeing. It is completely safe and for many people makes a good alternative to time consuming therapies and is likely to reduce the need for medication, and this is consistent with the research findings."
