Chapter VIII Good Health Brings Wealth
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Center for Health Statistics
high blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart attack and strokes, and is the first and third leading
cause of death, affecting one-fourth of U.S. adults.
...To date, over 6,000 physicians have learned the Transcendental Meditation technique in the United States, and many prescribe it to their patients. Gary Kapland, MD Clinical Director of Neurophysiology, North Shore University Hospital, New York University School of Medicine states:
...Because the leading risk factor of stroke is hypertension and because the TM technique has been shown to reduce hypertension and is free of the side effects seen with hypertension medication, I wholeheartedly recommend the TM program to patients who have had a stroke or are at risk of a stroke...
The TM technique lowers pulmonary hypertension and hypertension stress and risk of stroke. Scientific evidence supports the TM technique as the best pulmonary hypertension and hypertension and stress management tool available in the field of holistic health.
The April 2004 issue of the American Journal of Hypertension reported the
findings of a study by the Medical College of Georgia that the practice of Transcendental Meditation
reduced hypertension in inner city high school students when compared with a control group who did not
practice the TM technique, but instead, attended health education classes. Dr. Vernon A. Barnes, who performed
the study, stated that Transcendental Meditation should be considered for reducing high blood pressure in
high risk teens to reduce the chances of hypertension showing up later when teens grow up to adulthood.
A salesman who practices Transcendental Meditation has renewed vitality after each vigorous day's work, is free from hypertension and stress, and is able to enjoy the evening with family or friends, or perform additional work if desired. Salesmen who practice the Transcendental Meditation technique do not cope or live with stress. They live free from hypertension and fatigue.
Chapter IX Conquering Emotional Inhibitors
...In contradistinction to all other methods of personal development the Transcendental Meditation program is par excellence because it dissolves the very deep rooted causes of hypertension...
When hypertension dissolves, a natural, spontaneous wholesome personality results.
You will not have to remind yourself to feel happy - you will be happy. You will not need to remember to look sincere - you will be sincere. You will not have to stage confidence - you will be confident. You will not have to pretend to be interested in others - you will be genuinely interested in others. You will not pretend to act friendly - you will be friendly. You will not have to force yourself to work hard - you will apply yourself to your work out of the success and joy that your work brings you. You will not have to program yourself to think positive - you will be positive and therefore you will think positive. Procrastination and other bad work habits will automatically melt away, replaced by an energetic, stress free, positive work attitude.
