Positive Results for Sleep Problems and Cardiovascular
By Dr. Leslie Davis
Evidence continues to accumulate indicating that Maharishi's Vedic Vibration
Technology can bring relief to people suffering from a wide range of chronic
disorders, especially pain-related problems.
After five months of research involving over 2,000 participants, it
is very encouraging to see that for many disorders, three out of five
people gain relief at a level of 25 percent or more, and as many as
one in three report 50 percent or greater relief. Participants have
also reported a greater sense of well-being accompanying these changes.
In the June issue of Enlightenment magazine, initial results from the
North American research project were summarized for back pain, arthritis,
digestive and skin disorders, anxiety and depression, headaches, and
respiratory disorders. During the past three months, results from the
program have continued in the same positive direction.
Now I'd like to review preliminary findings for sleep disorders, including
insomnia, and for cardiovascular disorders, including hypertension,
angina, and palpitations (irregular beating of the heart).
Getting a Good Night's Sleep
In 33 people seeking relief from sleep problems, nearly two thirds reported
relief at a level of 25 percent or greater, and one third reported improvement
of 50 percent or more. These figures are based on reports from participants
about two weeks after their consultation. This "success rate"
is similar to that seen in a number of other conditions.
IN SLEEP PROBLEMS|
through Maharishi's Vedic Vibration Technology
of people: 33
Improvements in a variety of patterns of sleep disturbance were reported.
These included less difficulty in falling asleep, fewer awakenings in
the night, better quality of sleep, getting adequate sleep, reduction
of excess sleep, and fewer disturbing dreams.
Some of the reports were quite striking. One man had experienced sleep
problems for 27 years. Although it normally took him one to two hours
to fall asleep, on the night of his first session he fell asleep within
5 minutes. From then on, he had no problem falling asleep and felt fresher
during the day. Three months after the consultation he reported that
the relief had been maintained at a 70 percent level.
At the other end of the spectrum, another man reported a reduction
in excess sleep. The problem had been present for four months. He had
also experienced a feeling of heaviness during the day, along with procrastination
Beginning the night of his consultation, he started sleeping two or
two and a half hours less each night. He also woke up feeling more refreshed,
and felt more focused and clear in activity. The feeling of heaviness
has not returned after three months, and he still reports greater vitality,
which he attributes to more efficient sleep as a result of his consultation.
Improvement in Cardiovascular Disorders
Encouraging preliminary data have been obtained for hypertension, heart
palpitations, and angina.
Some participants with hypertension have reported stable blood pressure
reductions of 10 points or more. For two men with hypertension, this level
of reduction allowed them to avoid or reduce the use of antihypertensive

Improvements in a variety of problems
In some cases where reduced blood pressure was achieved, other programs
of Maharishi's Vedic Approach to Health programs may also have supported
the positive results.
Preventing Disorder at Its Inception
Improvements in heart palpitations-intermittent rapid or irregular beating
of the heart-have been a consistent finding. One lady had developed palpitations
following heart surgery. Since her consultation three months ago she has
experienced almost continuous relief from this disorder.
An interesting feature of her improvement was that, initially, the
palpitations still started to occur, but immediately went away. In the
lady's own words: "Over the last five weeks, probably four or five
times, I have felt my heart just begin to palpitate. Immediately, in
less time than it takes to sneeze, the palpitations stop and the heart
rhythm returns to normal. I experience this as my heart correcting itself.
I am very aware of my own inner intelligence at work rebalancing my
heart. There is no doubt in my mind about this. My consciousness is
absolutely clear about what is happening. It is a phenomenal experience."
Now, three months after her consultation, she no longer experiences
the palpitations even starting to come. She also experiences a feeling
of wholeness and integration in the heart area, which was previously
lacking. She said that this was in fact a more rewarding result for
her than the relief from palpitations.
Enlivening the Body's Inner Intelligence
The previous report is a good example of how participants in the program
may actually experience the inner intelligence of their body becoming
enlivened, accompanied by an improvement in a specific disorder. This
is a common experience reported by people during or after the sessions
of Maharishi's Vedic Vibration Technology, and is relevant for understanding
the mechanics of how instant relief can occur.
According to Maharishi's Vedic Approach to Health, the physiological
normalization mechanisms which underlie instant relief have their ultimate
basis in the perfectly orderly structure and function of the Veda, the
field of pure intelligence which is lively at the basis of the physiology.
This is a field of infinite organizing power which is accessed through
Maharishi's Vedic Vibration Technology and other programs of Maharishi's
Vedic Approach to Health programs - all of which restore balance, nourish
the physiology and remove disorder.
Non-Pharmacological Approach Proves Effective
Maharishi's Vedic Vibration Technology is based on the naturally functioning
mechanics of the body, and does not seek to manipulate the physiology
in any way. For this reason there is no conflict with any treatment the
person may be taking from a specific system of medicine, e.g. pharmacological
However, it is because the technology is working at such a fundamental
level-at the level of the body's inner intelligence-that such rewarding
results are being experienced from a non-pharmacological approach.
The large success rates, high levels of effect, and wide range of disorders
for which relief can be provided characterize Maharishi's Vedic Vibration
Technology as a remarkable breakthrough in providing satisfactory relief
for people with chronic disorders. Due to this, I look forward with
great interest to evaluating further results during Phase Two of the
