According to a new editorial written by the Director of Cedars-Sinai Cardiac Preventive and Rehabilitative Cardiac Center, C. Noel Bairey Merz, MD, 'Transcendental Meditation' should be implemented to significantly reduce depression, heart attacks, strokes and deaths in coronary heart disease patients.

The study was conducted at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee in collaboration with the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa.

The report came after many controlled clinical trials had concluded that coronary heart disease patients, who practiced the TranscendentalMeditation(r) technique had nearly 50 percent lower rates of death, heart attack, and stroke compared to controls in a health education group.

The study was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
