Research on PTSD

Fourteen peer-reviewed scientific studies have been published so far on Transcendental Meditation, showing that it is a highly effective tool to reduce Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. These studies include:

Veterans and Active Military

In November, 2018. Lancet Psychiatry published a study that compared Prolonged Exposure (PE) with Transcendental Meditation (TM) at reducing PTSD. The study tested to see if TM was at least as good as PE, which is one of the two top recommended standard treatment protocols used by the military, along with pharmaceuticals, to reduce and eliminate PTSD.

The study showed that TM is certainly as good as PE.
