How TM reduces anxiety and depression

Scientific studies have shown that during TM practice, cortisol and other stress indicators fall markedly, blood pressure tends toward normal, the whole physiology shifts toward more settled and balanced functioning. This reversal of the stress response in the body results in a clearer, calmer, more harmonious state of mind and emotions outside of meditation.

Forty years of scientific research on the TM technique has identified a wide range of positive effects from regular, twice-daily practice. This research shows the TM technique impacting all aspects of mental and physical health—facilitating healing while promoting holistic growth and transformation.

Dvakrat učinkovitejša od drugih tehnik

Kar Transcendentalno meditacijo loči od drugih tehnik je njen celostni učinek. Primerjamo jo lahko z zalivanjem korenin rastline v primerjavi z ukvarjanjem z listi. Znanstvene raziskave so pokazale, da globoka sprostitev med Transcendentalno meditacijo umiri um in telo, kar zmanjša živčni odziv na stres. Posledično se zmanjšata anksioznost in depresija, kar vam dovoli, da nadzirate in premagate mnoge simptome, ki se lahko pojavijo, vključno z napadi panike, socialno anksioznostjo in fobijami.Analiza vseh 146 objavlenih raziskav o sprostitvi in anksioznosti (graf na levi) je pokazala, da je Transcendentalna meditacija dvakrat bolj učinkovita pri zmanjševanju anskioznosti od drugih tehnik, vključno s sprostitvenim odzivom, koncentracijsko metodo meditacije, sistematičnim sproščanjem mišic in mišično biološko povratno zanko
Zanimivo je, da dlje kot so se preučevani posamezniki ukvarjali z vadbo Transcendentalne meditacije, manj je bilo anksioznosti.

Transcendentalna meditacija prekine začarani krog

Spopadanje z anksioznostjo in depresijo je dolgoročen izziv in se lahko spremeni v začarani krog, v katerem dejstvo, da bolezni ne moremo obvladati, vodi do še večje anksioznosti in depresije.

Vedno upoštevajte nasvet zdravnika

Če imate občutek, da anksioznost in depresija resno škodujeta vašemu življenju, se posvetujte s svojim zdravnikom. Transcendentalna meditacija dopolnjuje vse zdravstvene pristope k obvladovanju anksioznosti in depresije, vendar pa vadba Transcendentalne meditacije ni nadomestilo za zdravniški nasvet....

  • Vedno sledite navodilom vašega zdravnika
  • Nikoli ne zmanjšajte odmerka zdravila, razen če vam je to naročil vaš zdravnik

Beyond Medications and Diet: Alternative Approaches to Lowering Blood Pressure

Summary of Policy Statement Issued by the American Heart Association
22-Apr-2013

A new report from the American Heart Association published on 22 April 2013 concluded that the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique lowers blood pressure and recommends that the TM technique may be considered in clinical practice for the prevention and treatment of hypertension.

The purpose of the report, entitled "Beyond Medications and Diet Alternative Approaches to Lowering Blood Pressure: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association," is to inform physicians which alternative approaches to lowering blood pressure (BP) have been shown by research to be effective.

After considering meta-analyses and the latest clinical trials on different types of meditation, the report stated that while the Transcendental Meditation technique is recommended to lower BP, there is not enough scientific evidence to recommend other meditation or relaxation techniques.

The AHA's recent scientific statement reports:
"Because of many negative studies or mixed results and a paucity of available trials, all other meditation techniques (including MBSR) 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."

"This is an important breakthrough in the evolution of medical practice, since it is the first time that the Transcendental Meditation technique has been recognised and recommended for consideration by a national medical organisation that provides professional practice guidelines to physicians, health care payers, and policymakers," said Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention who has been the principal investigator for several research studies on the Transcendental Meditation technique and cardiovascular disease. "This type of guideline statement has been what health insurance companies have been requesting for many years."
