BBC World News: Using the Transcendental Meditation technique to alleviate ADHD

A new study suggests that the Transcendental Meditation technique could help improve brain functioning and lower stress in students.

Fifty students took part in the trial at the American University, in Washington, DC. After ten weeks of meditation the students scored higher on performance tests, reported feeling more alert and said they coped better in difficult situations.

Josh Goulding participated in the study and claims it has helped to get him off a cocktail of drugs he was taking to control Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
