"The research on Transcendental Meditation and cardiovascular disease is established well enough that physicians may safely and routinely prescribe stress reduction for their patients with this easy to implement, standardized and practical program,"he said."

great read. and since there has been adequate research to back up meditations affect on heart disease, no one can call this "pseudo" or a theory.

it sure could not hurt. It slows down the heartbeat and reduces stress so that will help alot.

I try not to get caught up on the particulars. I understand and acknowledge daily that there is a power greater than I that rules beyond the universe. It is this same power that exist to in me through my conscious realization of such. Because of this I accept the divine purpose meant for me to deliver to the universe. Each day I live actively seeking the best expression of myself which in turn reveals more God's purpose for my life.#GrowingDaily
