A New Advance in the Fight against Alzheimer’s Game-changing Bredesen Protocol to include the TM technique

Article by Harbour Fraser Hodder:

“Everyone knows a cancer survivor—someone who has been successfully treated and is now cancer-free—but no one knows an Alzheimer’s survivor. This tragic disease—the third leading cause of death in the United States—has had no effective treatment. Now there may be new hope for those suffering with or at risk for Alzheimer’s.
Dr. Dale Bredesen, renowned neurologist and author of the recent bestseller The End of Alzheimer’s: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline, is changing the science and treatment of this neurodegenerative disease. His published, peer-reviewed findings are the first to show a reversal of cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s,1-3 and the comprehensive “whole person” approach known as the Bredesen Protocol is now being followed by over 1,000 patients. Many of the studied patients have shown significant cognitive improvements in three to six months—some in as little as four days—improvements that have been sustained for years while patients adhere to the Protocol. The findings of these studies could be game-changing for the 75 million Americans, and their families, who carry the Alzheimer’s gene.” ….

A Journey from Brain Injury to Brain Health How TM supported this author’s health and inspired his work

BY PROF. WILLIAM T. HATHAWAY

“At birth I suffered a brain injury. An EEG test showed chaotic, abnormal brain waves, and in school I had Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). I couldn’t concentrate, and my thoughts were clouded. My grades were mediocre, and I flunked out of my first university. I wanted to become a writer, but my writing was disorganized and unclear. In despair, I took drugs, but they made my thoughts even foggier.

Then I started the Transcendental Meditation® (TM) technique. In a few weeks my thoughts became clearer, and I didn’t want drugs anymore. I could concentrate. And I could write. One of my essays gained me entrance to a much better university, Columbia, and this time my grades were so good I received a scholarship. My first novel won a Rinehart Foundation Award, and I became a professor of creative writing and won a Fulbright grant to teach at universities in Germany. I’ve now published eight books.” …

SUPER MIND

supermind-book

Super Mind
by Dr Norman Rosenthal

12 April 2016

Dr. Norman Rosenthal—internationally acclaimed psychiatrist, researcher, educator, and author explains how Transcendental Meditation (TM) can help develop your ‘super mind.’ The New York Times bestselling author explores how TM permanently expands your consciousness, resulting in extraordinary success and fulfillment. Dr. Rosenthal shows how this incredibly simple, twice-daily practice can consistently improve your state of mind throughout the day—elevating you to a state of unshakable, peak performance and unbounded awareness.

Dr. Rosenthal explains in his video how Super Mind goes beyond results from practicing TM described in his previous book, Transcendence. He was amazed and delighted with his own and others’ experiences from TM, finding that consciousness began to grow—that the normal blissful, transcendence experienced during TM filtered into his daily life—a stillness and silence in the midst of activity.

Dr. Rosenthal reveals that the book is based on a survey of over 600 people practicing TM. He reports, ”The ease with which we do things increases, we’re more productive and more available to others and to ourselves. We listen better—something all of us could benefit from.” He also observes that the turmoil inside ourselves becomes still and that we ”can open ourselves to other people and to what is going on around us. TM gives two periods during the day”, he says, ”to let ourself slow down, access our inner consciousness; and to then reap the benefits throughout the day”.

Other benefits he has observed are that an individual is able to be more authentic, to not be afraid, and be more engaged (or to see when there is a need to pull back). He concludes that the technique allows us to grow as a person, expand our potential, and live life to the fullest.

Those reviewing Super Mind include:

∙ Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post who comments, ”In Super Mind, Norman Rosenthal has written a vibrant, practical and persuasive guide to all the ways in which meditation can profoundly affect every aspect of our lives—from our emotional and spiritual well-being to our intellectual and creative abilities.”

∙ Actor Hugh Jackman says, ”Super Mind is a wonderfully practical exploration of the benefits of Transcendental Meditation that reveals how the technique is not a belief or faith but is a simple tool that, in my experience, can improve your life in ways you never thought possible.”

∙ Maria Shriver ”Super Mind opens new doors to thinking about consciousness, and new possibilities about how consciousness can grow and change a person’s life forever. Transcendental Meditation has been found to improve physical and psychological health in hundreds of published studies and Norman E. Rosenthal weaves this evidence together with powerful stories of transformation—a must-read for anyone wanting to develop a Super Mind.

∙ Dr. Jennifer Ashton, ABC News Chief Women’s Health Correspondent, Ob-Gyn: ”Dr. Rosenthal’s Super Mind is a thoroughly engaging, scientifically sound testament to the immediate and long-term benefits of Transcendental Meditation-a technique I have been practicing for nearly two years. TM has made me more mentally and physically energetic, sharper, less stressed and more positive. If I could write a prescription for TM to all my patients, I would.’

∙ Richard A. Friedman, M.D., contributing Op-Ed writer for The New York Times and Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College: ”Norman E. Rosenthal, renowned scientist and researcher, reveals the powerful, life-enhancing effects of Transcendental Meditation in this acutely observed and poetic book. In Transcendence, Rosenthal gave us the science behind TM; in Super Mind he does that and more, showing us the broad applications and transformative stories of real people using this simple technique.”

“The Supreme Awakening “

The_Supreme_Awak_55f7202a6e9fbOne of MUM Press’s best-selling booksThe Supreme Awakening has just been published in an expanded second edition.

The new edition includes descriptions of experiences of higher states of consciousness from more famous people through history — from Dag Hammarsköld (the great United Nations Secretary-General), Bernard Berenson (the famous American art historian), Antonio Machado (the noted Spanish poet), Morihei Ueshiba (the founder of the martial art known as aikido), Eckhart Tolle (the modern writer and teacher), and more.

It also includes an extended personal interview with a person who learned the Transcendental Meditation technique as a young man. Although he practiced it regularly for many years and enjoyed the practice and the benefits, he did not feel he was developing higher states of consciousness. Then one day, he suddenly began experiencing pure consciousness all the time, along with waking, dreaming, and sleeping — and his consciousness continued developing from there.

“This interview forms the perfect capstone to the book,” Dr. Pearson says. “The book shows famous people through history describing experiences of higher states that seem mostly temporary — and here is an example of an ordinary person who learns the TM technique and experiences systematic growth of consciousness to the highest levels. This story is amazing — it inspired me deeply.”

The Healing Power of Transcendental Meditation

By William T. Hathaway

I suffered a brain injury at birth. An EEG test showed chaotic, abnormal brain waves, and in school I had attention deficit disorder. I couldn’t concentrate and my thoughts were cloudy. My grades were mediocre, and I flunked out of my first university. I wanted to become a writer, but my writing was disorganized and unclear. In despair I took marijuana and other drugs, but they made my thoughts even foggier.

Then I started Transcendental Meditation. My thoughts became clearer, and I didn’t want drugs anymore. I could concentrate. And I could write. One of my essays gained me entrance to a much better university, Columbia in New York City, and this time my grades were so good I received a scholarship. My first novel won a Rinehart Foundation Award, and I became a professor of creative writing. I’ve now published eight books and many shorter pieces.

My EEG now shows normal, orderly brain waves with no sign of damage. TM healed my birth injury and gave me access to my talent and mental abilities. Without meditation, this change would not have occurred.

How did it happen? Physiologists have discovered that during Transcendental Meditation nourishing blood flow to the brain increases by 20%. Our brain waves become more coherent, synchronizing and coordinating across both hemispheres, an indication of more integrated mental functioning. The whole brain becomes more activated, and that gives us access to more of our potential. In the blood stream arginine vasopressin, a hormone that improves memory and learning ability, increases, as do serotonin and melatonin, hormones that indicate relaxation and well being. Adrenalin, cortisol, blood lactate, and blood pressure decrease, indicating lessened anxiety. The effortless process of TM produces mental and physical rest that is twice as deep as in sleep, although we’re fully awake. This rejuvenating state enables the body’s self-healing mechanism to repair the damage from traumatic events and illnesses. With these blockages gone we are more able to develop our full capabilities.

Physiological studies published in independent peer-reviewed journals indicate that TM creates this state of deep rest and removes these stress blockages more effectively than other forms of meditation: http://www.truthabouttm.org/truth/TMResearch/ComparisonofTechniques/index.cfm.
