Transcending…and even Type 2 diabetes might be reversed
Transcending removes the most important cause of diabetes.
It’s been known for a long time that the stress hormone cortisol increases insulin resistance. It has also been known for a long time that transcending significantly lowers cortisol levels. Transcending brings the body to a deep state of relaxation, activating our body’s own healing power and, among other things, spontaneously reduces cortisol. In the longterm this reduction could become permanent, as we train the body to permanently function in a more relaxed state. Can TM practice fully cure Type 2 diabetes? That may depend on the extent to which the illness has developed. But most important initially is to reverse the process, from a constantly deteriorating to a constantly improving situation, and this simple technique certainly can assist with this.
TM lowers insulin resistance, an exceptional effect confirmed through exceptional research.
The research around the positive effect of the Transcendental Meditation technique on insulin resistance (Type 2) diabetes is exceptional for 2 reasons:
1. The result itself was exceptional (as diabetes is generally considered irreversible).
2. The research itself was of exceptionally high quality.
The research was carried out in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the US government, one of the world’s most prestigious medical research institutions. The NIH has spent over 24 million USD in support of research on the effect of Transcendental Meditation. It has supported TM research for over 20 years and for one simple reason: TM works, and it is the only alternative method that seems to have a significant effect on all aspects that influence heart disease at the same time: hypertension, diabetes, and cholesterol.
The NIH diabetes study monitored a group of 106 heart patients. They were randomly divided into one Transcendental Meditation group, being taught the TM technique at the start of their study, and a control group that received health education, with active encouragement to improve their lifestyle. The TM group didn’t change anything in their lifestyle; they just practised the Transcendental Meditation technique for 20 minutes, twice a day. It was unknown to the researcher who belonged to which group. Insulin resistance and blood pressure were studied within the two groups as part of the metabolic syndrome, a combination of factors causing heart problems and other health problems.
After 16 weeks of regular Transcendental Meditation practice, the individuals in the TM group noticed significant improvements in both blood pressure and insulin resistance (p=.01) compared to the control group, which showed a deterioration despite their changes in lifestyle and increase physical activity. This study was published by the American Medical Association’s Archives of Internal Medicine, Vol. 166, June 12, 2006. Read the full publication
The diabetes research led to Dr Mehmet Oz, perhaps the world’s most famous doctor and an influential heart specialist, giving his full support to the Transcendental Meditation technique. (see video Dr Oz. supports TM). In the video Dr Oz discusses the effects of TM on 3 big risk factors for heart problems: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

Despite the success of Transcendental Meditation in the treatment of diabetes, we always recommend to apply the technique in combination with regular healthcare. Always consult your doctor.
