What is the Coherence Effect?

Coherence heals. The coherence effect is the healing effect of creating order in the mind and body. All diseases are disorders, and the antidote is to create order in the disordered part of the body. Modern medicine seeks to do this with its pharmaceuticals. But for lasting health, we need to generate coherence through what keeps us healthy on a daily basis—to our diet, exercise, and rest and relaxation or meditation practices.

The Coherence Effect shows how yogis and sages have done this for centuries and the science showing its effectiveness in treating the ailments of the modern world.

“This book illustrates a simple, yet profound law of nature governing health and human development—coherence heals. Keith, Jay, and Chris demonstrate the importance to life of mind and body coherence, and they show how to develop it.”

—Tony Nader, MD, PhD, MARR, author of  One Unbounded Ocean of Consciousness, head of the International Transcendental Meditation organizations in over 100 countries

“After having practiced other types of meditation for years, TM has been transformative in my life… I am petitioning our entire health system to train all our healthcare providers in TM.”
