Transcendental meditation reduces post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms

It’s amazing how simple (and cheap) effective treatments can be. Meditation seems to be a widely applicable medication.

Pilot study on the effects of transcendental meditation in veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom with posttraumatic stress disorder reveals 50% reduction of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in just 12 weeks.

This does look promising treatment, which could definitely help thousands of veterans through PTSD, specially if consider similar study on Vietnam vets from years ago.
