Because of the intimate connection between mind and body, when our mind transcends the field of activity, our body becomes very relaxed. Modern research demonstrates that during this deep level of rest our metabolic rate drops to levels much deeper than is typically seen during sleep. It is this profound level of rest to both the mind and body that enables deep-rooted stress and fatigue to be released. For this reason, TM, along with the other Ayurvedic practices, greatly enhances the self-repair mechanisms of the mind-body system. Scientific research indicates that this self-repair even occurs at the level of our DNA, and this may explain the holistic benefits in the area of mental health that are seen in those who embrace the practices of Maharishi Ayurveda. As such, Maharishi Ayurveda addresses many of the root causes of mental health issues that have their basis in stress.
