Transcend…and even fibromyalgia/CFS can improve
Research: 92 to 97% healing of fibromyalgia in TM patients
Fibromyalgia is still a mystery to modern medicine. But, as is the case with many other problems that are considered incurable, transcending has an exceptional effect on fibromyalgia.
It has been found that:
1. Fibromyalgia symptoms often arise as a result of periods of intense or traumatic stress.
2. Fibromyalgia is associated with abnormally low levels of serotonin.
Transcending shows to be an effective treatment for both factors. For more info read:

The extraordinary impact of TM practice on fibromyalgia was confirmed by, among others, a pilot study in Norway that was recently published in the International Journal of Clinical Rheumatology.
Thirty-one women with severe fibromyalgia symptoms took the Maharishi Ayurveda Panchakarma physical purification treatment for 9 days, and various herbal preparations for a longer period of time. Some of the patients also learned the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique. The patients were tested before treatment, after 6 months, and after two years, in order to investigate the long-term effects of the treatment.
This showed that the group who received only the purification treatment had a significant long-term reduction (26% to 44% reduction) on 6 of 7 FM symptoms, namely: inability to work, pain, fatigue, morning tiredness, and stiffness and anxiety disorders. On a seventh symptom, depression, they had a nearly significant improvement (33% improvement, p <.06). The biggest change occurred within 6 months, but the reduction remained stable over the following 2 years.
But those patients who had also learned the Transcendental Meditation technique performed much better. After two years there were virtually no symptoms left (-92% to -97% according to the research). Although this was a small pilot study and the effect of the Transcendental Meditation technique in itself was not tested independently of the detox and herbal preparations, the big difference between the TM group and the non-TM group is a clear indication that Transcendental Meditation in itself triggers a strong healing effect on fibromyalgia. Perhaps it is advisable to learn the TM technique as well as to follow the purification treatment, but if this is not practical, it appears that the TM technique is the most cost-effective solution (lower cost, greater effect).

Although the study confirmed the effect after two years, this does not mean that it will take two years before an effect can be seen. Experience with fibromyalgia patients who learn TM shows that generally a significant improvement is already taking place after 4 to 6 weeks. Read the testimonials.
