Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Transcendental meditation in the classroom

    David Lynch (The Elephant Man, Twin Peaks, and others) is funding the inclusion of TM in the classroom. The July/August 2006 issue of AARP The Magazine (Yes, I am a member.) reports his foundation has launched or is planning to launch meditation programs in six cities.

    According to Mr. Lynch, “In the classroom where meditation is taught, you’d see students much happier, much brighter, eager to learn.”

    It sounds like a good idea to me, but when you add new activities to a fixed time period, what is lost? Not reading, writing, and arithmetic, I hope.
