CSM does not constitute a replacement for treatment by a competent health care professional for patients suffering from physical or emotional symptoms requiring therapeutic intervention. CSM can be used beneficially in conjunction with other forms of treatment for relief of clinical symptoms, provided the CSM recorded training program is used under the observation and guidance of a physician, psychologist, or other health care professional acquainted with the CSM technique. In particular, patients who are receiving medication for endocrine or metabolic control or for the control of pain or of psychiatric symptoms, should be under the care of a health professional familiar with the effects of profound relaxation upon medical conditions and drug therapy. Keep in mind that persons using insulin, thyroxin or anti-hypertensive medications, in particular, may require decreases in dosage of these drugs while engaging in the regular practice of CSM, and their physicians should be asked to read the Information Sheet for Doctors (pp. 62-63 of the Learn to Meditate Manual).
