Insomnia cured among Indian patients.
Seventy-five Indian patients with health problems for which regular medical treatment offered no cure (33 different problems) were taught the Transcendental Meditation technique, and 67 of them continued to regularly practice the technique. Over the long term, 61 out of 67 patients had good results (significant improvement or complete disappearance of the problem) and 24 had very good results (with a very fast, dramatic or unexpected full recovery).Ref. Scientific Research on TM: Collected Papers vol 3, 239, pp. 1826-1829
For 11 cases of insomnia, all 11 patients showed very good results.
Healthier behaviour among managers.
In a company that produces medical equipment, managers who had learned the Transcendental Meditation technique showed healthier behaviour after three months, as measured by more regular exercise, food and sleeping habits, and a reduction in alcohol usage, in comparison to a control group from the same company. Ref.Dissertation Abstracts International 57(6): 4068B, 1996.
Improved night sleep in industrial workers.
A study carried out at Sumitomo Heavy Industries by the Japanese National Institute of Industrial Health found that the 427 employees who were taught the Transcendental Meditation technique were able to fall asleep more easily at night than those in the control group of 308 employees at the same work place.Ref.Japanese Journal of Public Health 37 (10 Suppl.): 729, 1990.
Improved sleep quality in executives and workers.
A study among managers and employees in the car industry showed that, after three months of regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique, quality of sleep significantly improved (p<.0025) in comparison to controls in the same work place. The effect was the greatest among regular practitioners.Ref.Anxiety, Stress and Coping: An International Journal 6: 245–262, 1993.
Significant decrease in insomnia among PTS patients
