Transcending HIV / AIDS with meditation

“My CD4 T-helper cells [cells that fight infections] were declining, and they were declining rapidly. I began doing Transcendental Meditation… The effects were amazing—they were profound in a matter of months.” So said Michael Rouppet. Watch his interview with other HIV patients, HIV specialist Dr. Kamiar Alaei, and Bob Roth of the David Lynch Foundation. According to a new study, Transcendental Meditation twice-a-day may help people with HIV feel better. The first-of-its-kind randomized controlled study, published in the journal AIDS Care, compared a group of meditating HIV patients with those not practicing meditation.  Participants who learnt TM got sick less frequently, were less fatigued and more energized, and had better general health and physical functioning.
