A natural solution to anxiety and depression

Both anxiety and depression are extremely common, yet a simple solution may be at hand. For some, stressful or discouraging events produce short-lived symptoms; but for others, anxiety and depression can be on-going and relentless, making normal daily life impossible. Transcendental Meditation provides a natural solution to help you overcome anxiety and depression.

Twice as effective as other techniques

What distinguishes TM is its holistic effect. It is like watering the root of a plant instead of just tending the leaves. Scientific research has shown that the deep relaxation gained from Transcendental Meditation settles mind and body so that the nervous reaction to stress is lessened. Subsequently, the anxiety and depression are reduced, enabling you to manage and overcome many of the symptoms that you may experience, including panic attacks, social anxiety and phobias.
An analysis of all 146 published studies on relaxation and anxiety (see chart left) showed that Transcendental Meditation was twice as effective in reducing anxiety as other techniques including the relaxation response, concentration meditation, systematic muscular relaxation, and muscle biofeedback.
Interestingly, the longer the people in these studies had been practising TM, the greater was the decrease in anxiety.
