Please Spread the Word - 48% Reduction in Heart Attacks and Stroke through Meditation - Study by American Heart Association

Time Magazine publication:


TIME Magazine reported that a study from the American Heart Association shows that regular meditation was correlated with a 48% reduced rate of heart attack and stroke. Blood pressure was reduced and anger decreased significantly among the meditation group. They also showed a trend towards reduced smoking.

“It appears that Transcendental Meditation is a technique that turns on the body’s own pharmacy – to repair and maintain itself.” said lead researcher Dr Robert Schneider, director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention in Iowa. Dr Schneider added: “Transcendental Meditation may reduce heart disease risks for both healthy people and those with diagnosed heart conditions.”

“The research on Transcendental Meditation and cardiovascular disease is established well enough that doctors may safely and routinely prescribe stress reduction for their patients with this easy to implement, standardised and practical programme.”

The study was funded by the US National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Studies on the effects of mediation have been done countless times, but this is by far the most prestigious and recognized study to date, proving that simply meditating 20 minutes twice a day can cut your chances of sudden death, heart attack, and stroke in half immediately. What man-mad pill can do that?

There is this awesome CD that is made for meditation that matches the vibrational frequency in Hertz (sound waves) with the vibrational frequency of the colour of the chakra in TeraHertz (light waves). In other words, the sound and tones of the colour of the chakra is played to stimulate that energy system during meditation to promote spiritual and physical health. This feels amazingly self-empowering and peaceful. I highly recommend it. Samples available to listen here:
