Meditation help for PTSD
TRANSCENDENTAL meditation has been shown to decrease the severity of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
A trial involved 203 US veterans with PTSD, most with very severe symptoms, predominantly due to combat-related trauma.
After three months of treatment, meditation was found to be just as effective in reducing PTSD symptoms as the most commonly used psychotherapy, prolonged exposure therapy, and better than health education classes.
The study is published in The Lancet Psychiatry journal.
