This article, “Combating PTSD” published in OpEdNews on 23 March 2001, was written by Dr. David Leffler, the Executive Director at the Center for Advanced Military Science (CAMS). It explains that the TM program is a scientifically-verified, time-tested solution to help our military personnel, veterans and their families combat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Dr. Leffler discusses a new pilot study (under review), Iraq and Afghanistan veterans experienced a 50% drop in PTSD symptoms by the fourth week of TM practice, and greater improvements by two months and three months. This study is summarized in the new book The Resilient Warrior: Healing the Hidden Wounds of War by Jerry Yellin and Dr. Sarina Grosswald.
