Dr. Oz on benefits of meditation
January 15, 2013
A video clip by Dr. Oz where he describes the influence of Transcendental Meditation in his own life and the lives of the members of his creative team.
Dr Oz says: “I’ve been practicing Transcendental Meditation or TM for nearly three years. 6 months ago I decided to offer Transcendental Meditation to everyone in my team on Dr Oz Show. I’ve seen the extensive research documenting its benefits and I’ve also seen so many people whom I admire and respect incorporate meditation in their own lives. And sharing it with the people they care for.”
Dr Oz admits that being a type A, high-power individual he was initially quite skeptical of such a mental technique. What really turned the tables was the effects and beneficial impacts he witnessed in people who had taken up the TM practice.
