The Maharishi Vedic Prevention Center
will offer scientifically validated programs that enliven the
inner intelligence of the human body, reduce stress, develop
individual potential and promote perfect health. More than 600
published, peer-reviewed, scientific studies done at over 200
universities and research institutes in 30 countries over the
last 35 years confirm the benefits of the programs to all areas
of life. Points of interest regarding cardiovascular health
- Health insurance company data show, over a five year period,
87% fewer hospital admissions for heart disease (55% fewer
for tumors including cancer) in those who utilize these programs.
- Reduced cardiovascular risk factors including reduced cholesterol,
reduced hypertension, reduced stress and anxiety, and reduced
cigarette, alcohol and other substance abuse.
- Other studies indicate reversal of the negative effects
of aging and reduced biological age in program participants.
- Over the past 15 years the National Institutes of Health
have granted $20 million to study the effects of the Transcendental
Meditation® program on hypertension and heart disease.
- Recently several studies from this funding have appeared
in the Journals of the American Heart Association, including
Hypertension and Stroke. Studies show that the TM technique
reduces hypertension as well as medication (but with many
side-benefits instead of harmful, negative side-effects),
and also reverses arteriosclerosis.
- Funding from the NIH has also established a Center for Alternative
and Complimentary Medicine at our affiliated College of Vedic
Medicine at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield,
