Heal the Healers
“HEAL THE HEALERS NOW” NEW INITIATIVE TO PROVIDE MEDITATION TO US MEDICAL PROVIDERS BATTLING COVID-19   To Reduce Anxiety, Boost Resilience, Heal Trauma   “Heal the Healers Now,” a new initiative to bring the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation® technique to medical providers who are battling the coronavirus pandemic, was launched nationally on Monday, April 6, by the two nonprofit groups: the Center for Health and Wellness of the David Lynch Foundation and the US TM® organization.   Even before the pandemic, a Harvard report called physician burnout “a public health crisis that urgently demands action” with several surveys putting the rate of provider burnout as high as 70 percent. The American Academy of Family Physicians linked burnout to higher rates of medical errors, substance abuse and addiction, and suicide among physicians.   Today, the situation is far worse, and demands well-documented, innovative approaches to address this crisis. “Transcendental Meditation is an evidence-based, non-pharmacological intervention for this devastating public health crisis,” said Stuart Rothenberg, MD, Medical Director of the Center for Health and Wellness. —
