Complement the current advice

Health professionals advise us to take on board the following lifestyle choices:

Lower your stress levels, naturally

You cannot always change your outer circumstances and control everything that happens to you. However, you can significantly increase your inner resilience to stress and counteract its negative impact by regularly practising Transcendental Meditation.

When facing stress, we might try to fight it, run away from it, or deny its existence in the hope that it will somehow vanish of its own accord.

Instead, why not practise a technique which allows your mind and body to calm down in a natural, easy and effortless way - Transcendental Meditation



"Meditation, not medication," is the advice Robert Schneider, MD, gives when it comes to high blood pressure treatment. It's not his only advice, but it's right at the top of his list. Schneider is director of the US government-sponsored Center for Natural Medicine and Prevention and has been researching the positive effects of Transcendental Meditation (TM) for the past 15 years.


Summary of Policy Statement Issued by the American Heart Association

According to the American Heart Association, the Transcendental Meditation technique is the only meditation practice that has been shown to lower blood pressure.

The AHA's scientific statement* said: "Because of many negative studies or mixed results and a paucity of available trials, all other meditation techniques [including Mindfulness] received a ‘Class III, no benefit, Level of Evidence C' recommendation. Thus, other meditation techniques are not recommended in clinical practice to lower BP at this time."

Reduced rates of death, heart attack and stroke

The AHA scientific statement also reported the finding that lower blood pressure through Transcendental Meditation practice is associated with substantially reduced rates of death, heart attack and stroke.

The AHA scientific statement concludes that alternative treatments that include the Transcendental Meditation technique are recommended for consideration in treatment plans for all individuals with blood pressure greater than 120/80 mm Hg.

Transcendental Meditation is especially effective

Though there are many kinds of relaxation and meditation, it is only Transcendental Meditation – says the American Heart Association – that has been shown to be effective in improving high blood pressure and other risk factors for heart disease. The practice of Transcendental Meditation has been associated with substantially reduced rates of death, heart attack and stroke too.

A special quality of rest is achieved through Transcendental Meditation, which breaks the cycle of chronic stress. Blood vessels relax and expand, the blood flows more easily, the heart has to beat less hard, and there is less damage to the arteries. The body's self-repair mechanisms are able to restore mind and body a more balanced state.

Anyone can do it

Transcendental Meditation is not controlling or training the mind. It is not trying to be in the now nor is it a change of attitude, belief or value system. 

It's one of the simplest things you will ever do. Children can meditate without difficulty. You don't have to develop a skill. You don't need any aptitude. It's just a matter of creating the conditions for a built-in physiological response to take place.

Reduced blood pressure linked to longer life

A comprehensive analysis of all published randomised control trials on stress reduction among people with high blood pressure found that Transcendental Meditation was the only technique that did significantly reduce blood pressure. A second analysis replicated the finding that both systolic and diastolic components were significantly reduced by Transcendental Meditation.

Researchers have also observed how reduced blood pressure resulting from practice of Transcendental Meditation translates into longer life.

In a controlled study of people over 55 years old and suffering from hypertension, those practising Transcendental Meditation lived more years, in general. Specifically, their rate of mortality due to high blood pressure was decreased by 30%.

What the Media is saying about TM

Time Magazine


BBC News: Meditation lowers blood pressure

"Transcendental meditation may be one way to keep the heart healthy, say researchers who have discovered how it keeps blood pressure low."

FT: Financial Times "Meditate to sharpen your assertive edge"

"TM helps people 'become more dynamic, more focused, more creative and yet not consumed by stress' … 'it's unlikely [aggressive Type-A personalities] will be de-fanged and turned into a Type-B, by meditating. But they might feel less tense'."

The Guardian: Does TM work?

On 1 March 2014, one of the biggest British national daily newspapers, The Guardian, published a long article on the Transcendental Meditation practice. Staff journalist Stuart Heritage approached the topic from a very personal perspective: "First he tried sleep apps, then a flotation tank, then mindfulness – but nothing would stop the chatter in Stuart Heritage's increasingly exhausted mind. Would Transcendental Meditation, currently enjoying a revival, do the trick?"  Peppered by tongue-in-cheek humour, the article has created quite a stir in Britain. According to trustworthy sources, the interest in learning the TM technique has simply skyrocketed in the weeks following the publication of the story.
