Increased functional capacity among heart patients

Patients recently admitted to the hospital with cognitive heart failures, and that were taught Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation technique, after 6 months showed better functional capacity, in comparison to those that were randomly assigned to control groups that received health information. Functional capacity was measured through a six-minute walking test, by measuring how far an individual was able to walk in the time allotted.
