A study published in the Lancet Psychiatry Journal revealed that transcendental meditation can prove to be a viable option to lessen the severity of PTSD symptoms, thus providing a good alternative to the conventional prolonged exposure-based treatments.

The study was conducted through a randomized controlled trial on 203 war veterans in the US, diagnosed with PTSD resulting from active military service.

According to co-author Dr Sanford Nidich, Maharishi University of Management Research Institute, USA, PTSD can negatively impact cardiovascular health, occupational functioning and even memory.

“PTSD harms veterans’ mental, physical, and financial well-being, and there is also growing evidence of links between PTSD and cardiovascular health, occupational functioning, metabolic function, and possibly even dementia risk. Our findings indicate the feasibility and efficacy of transcendental meditation as a potential therapy for veterans with PTSD and encourages future research to explore the durability of the benefits and applications to other populations with PTSD.” – Dr Sanford Nidich, Maharishi University of Management Research Institute
