ARE YOU INTO SCIENTIFIC & CLINICAL RESEARCH
Numerous reports by laymen have indicated that meditation can enhance the self-healing power of the body, thereby overcoming many psychological, psychosomatic and even physical dis- eases. As you can see in The Reports Volume I, and in subsequent volumes, many improvement in physical and mental health and abatement of disease states are really amazing. Nevertheless, reports by layman can only be considered as highly suggestive ----- but cannot be considered as conclusive evidence. Only case-studies by clinical researchers in a scientific manner will one-day lead to conclusive evidence for the beneficial effects of meditation in health maintenance and the treatment of diseases.
The National Clearinghouse for Meditation Relaxation S Related Therapies has contact with many meditation teachers who are health-oriented and have been "treating diseases"for many years. Some of them are living outside United States. With the proper clinical research set-up, they can be invited to join us in research, and teach patients the practical form of meditation aimed at the treatment of specific diseases. The National Clearinghouse will volunteer to do all the groundwork to bring the "Masters" and the "Clinical Researchers" together provided that the research project is properly designed. Lawrence Young M.D., Director of the National Clearinghouse is most happy to make some stimulating and useful suggestions for the prospective clinical researchers and would be deli9hted to assist in whatever way he can.
