Over half a million U.S. troops suffer from stress-induced problems like Post-traumatic Stress (PTS). Less than 20 percent receive proper care due to ineffective treatments, insufficient government resources, or fear of stigma, putting military personnel and veterans at greater risk for self-destructive and violent behaviour, write U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight Jr. (Ret.) and David Leffler in The Hill, a top US political website, widely read by Washington policymakers. Experts acknowledge that PTS has generally been highly resistant to many conventional approaches. The authors, however, cite ‘a highly effective alternative approach. . . . We suggest that more attention be given to the large body of evidence supporting the Transcendental Meditation programme.’
