Caption: By the fourth week of practicing TM, OEF/OIF veterans with PTSD experienced dramatic reductions in PTSD symptoms according to the Clinically-Administered PTSD Scale (the gold standard of PTSD testing). They also reported decreased depression and improved quality of life—showing a greater ability to return to their lives after the war. These findings replicated an earlier study examining TM as a treatment for Vietnam veterans with PTSD.
