Lower Risk of Heart Attack & Stroke

Transcending Heart Disease – Dr Suzanne Steinbaum.

The number one cause of death for women in developed countries is heart disease. Do you know enough about heart disease to protect yourself? Sixty-seven percent of women who die from a heart attack have no previous symptom of the disease. 

“I think if you ask the average woman on the street what her biggest health concern is, it’s probably dying of breast cancer–which is not to minimize that that isn’t important. But women are actually five times more likely to die of cardiovascular disease. It’s a major killer of women.”

Dr. Karin Humphries, Scientific Director of the B.C. Centre, Canada for Improved Cardiovascular Health.

Effortless Prevention

During TM practice, as the mind effortlessly settles inward to a quiet state of restful alertness the body experiences deep rest, dissolving accumulated stresses and fatigue. 

When we reduce stress, naturally we reduce stress-related heart problems, including high blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for heart disease. Regular practice helps to reduce the three major risk factors for heart disease: high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.  The TM technique also curbs smoking and substance abuse, reducing these additional common risk factors for heart disease.

What Does the Research Say?

 A study  from University of Wisconsin showed that deaths, heart attacks, and strokes were cut by nearly half for at-risk patients who practised the  TM  technique, compared to controls.

The following  meta-analysis of research on TM found that the Transcendental Meditation technique was the only stress-reduction programme that significantly reduces blood pressure in hypertensive patients.
