Operation Warrior Wellness is a national wellness outreach to help 10,000 veterans overcome Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) through Transcendental Meditation.
Staggering statistics from the Veterans Administration show that more soldiers are dying from the trauma of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan than at the hands of enemy combatants. Over 400,000 veterans have been diagnosed with PTSD since 2001, with 18 veterans committing suicide each day.
This is absolutely shocking. We must do what we can to support this prorgam.
Research shows Transcendental Meditation improves mental and physical health, and reduces symptoms associated with combat stress and PTSD, including anxiety, depression, anger episodes, hypervigilence, insomnia, and substance abuse.
Transcendental Meditation is a simple, easily learned mental technique, which provides the body with deep rest and calms the mind. The technique does not involve any belief, religion, philosophy, or change in lifestyle. To date, more than six million people worldwide have learned TM.
For me, meditation put a distance between myself and addiction. It saved my life.
This holiday, please support Operation Warrior Wellness with the David Lynch Foundation.
Let's help them overcome PTSD so they can live in peace. Do it for your brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers who are doing their part to protect their country.
