    NIH funded, peer-reviewed, published studies show:

    The Transcendental Meditation technique:

    • Can lower high blood pressure without drugs
    • Can cut the risk of heart attack and stroke by up to 50%
    • Reduces stress hormones such as adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol
    The Transcendental Meditation practice can cut the risk of heart attack and stroke in half.

    In a nine-year randomized controlled trial of patients with coronary heart disease, TM led to a 48% reduction in the rate of major clinical events (death, heart attack, and stroke) compared to controls. Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes (2012), Vol. 5:6

    Over $25 Million in NIH Funding for Transcendental Meditation Research on Heart Health

    The National Institutes of Health has granted over $25 million to study the effects of the Transcendental Meditation program on the prevention and treatment of heart disease, hypertension, and stroke.

    The American Heart Association States that Transcendental Meditation Lowers Blood Pressure.

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

    “TM may be considered in clinical practice to lower BP. 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.”
