Reduce Blood Pressure Naturally . . .

Yes, you can do it completely naturally 

Blood pressure does not have to become high as we age. By adding Transcendental Meditation to our daily routine, our physical and mental wellbeing improves and this has a beneficial impact on our health as a whole. This includes a scientifically validated way of lowering high blood pressure naturally.

We do not usually start out in life with high blood pressure. But it is something we can acquire via a number of negative ‘lifestyle' factors – and high stress levels are commonly one of the major contributors. Transcendental Meditation (TM) is scientifically proven to significantly increase our inner resilience to stress and counteract its negative impact – including elimination of high blood pressure.

It is very simple. When we practise TM, mental activity becomes less without any effort on our part. Thinking becomes more refined and the mind experiences levels of deep silence along with expanded feelings of inner contentment and happiness.

At the same time the body gains deep rest in a natural, easy and effortless manner. In this way fatigue, anxiety and stress are naturally eliminated from the nervous system. Blood pressure begins to normalise, almost immediately.




Summary of Policy Statement Issued by the American Heart Association

According to the American Heart Association, the Transcendental Meditation technique is the only meditation practice that has been shown to lower blood pressure.

The AHA's scientific statement* said: "Because of many negative studies or mixed results and a paucity of available trials, all other meditation techniques [including Mindfulness] received a ‘Class III, no benefit, Level of Evidence C' recommendation. Thus, other meditation techniques are not recommended in clinical practice to lower BP at this time."

Reduced rates of death, heart attack and stroke

The AHA scientific statement also reported the finding that lower blood pressure through Transcendental Meditation practice is associated with substantially reduced rates of death, heart attack and stroke.

The AHA scientific statement concludes that alternative treatments that include the Transcendental Meditation technique are recommended for consideration in treatment plans for all individuals with blood pressure greater than 120/80 mm Hg.

Transcendental Meditation is most effective

According to Dr Steinbaum and the American Heart Association, Transcendental Meditation is the only relaxation or meditation technique proven to be effective in reducing high blood pressure and improving other risk factors for heart disease. The practice of TM has also been associated with substantially reduced rates of death by heart attack and stroke.

During TM blood vessels relax and expand. Blood flow becomes more efficient. Strain on the heart is greatly reduced and there is less damage to the arteries.

Reduced blood pressure linked to longer life . . .

A comprehensive analysis of all published randomised control trials on stress reduction among people with high blood pressure found that Transcendental Meditation was more than twice as effective as other methods of reducing blood pressure.

Other research shows that, in a controlled study of people over 55 years old and suffering from hypertension, those practising Transcendental Meditation lived longer. Specifically, their rate of mortality due to high blood pressure was decreased by 30%.

What the Media is saying about TM

Time Magazine

BBC News: Meditation lowers blood pressure

"Transcendental meditation may be one way to keep the heart healthy, say researchers who have discovered how it keeps blood pressure low."

FT: Financial Times "Meditate to sharpen your assertive edge"

"TM helps people 'become more dynamic, more focused, more creative and yet not consumed by stress' … 'it's unlikely [aggressive Type-A personalities] will be de-fanged and turned into a Type-B, by meditating. But they might feel less tense'."

The Guardian: Does TM work?

On 1 March 2014, one of the biggest British national daily newspapers, The Guardian, published a long article on the Transcendental Meditation practice. Staff journalist Stuart Heritage approached the topic from a very personal perspective: "First he tried sleep apps, then a flotation tank, then mindfulness – but nothing would stop the chatter in Stuart Heritage's increasingly exhausted mind. Would Transcendental Meditation, currently enjoying a revival, do the trick?"  Peppered by tongue-in-cheek humour, the article has created quite a stir in Britain. According to trustworthy sources, the interest in learning the TM technique has simply skyrocketed in the weeks following the publication of the story.
