Meditation Found To Help Treat PTSD

Practicing transcendental meditation can help reduce or even reverse the symptoms of PTSD and depression in a new study of young people. 

The findings, which appear in the journal Psychological Reports, indicate that participants who started practicing transcendental meditation saw notable improvements in their symptoms.

The researchers worked with 34 students at the Maharishi Institute who had PTSD and depression. These students agreed to practice transcendental meditation, a type of meditation that involves chanting and focusing on mantras to achieve serenity. 

You can find the study in the journal Psychological Reports.
