The economic pressures of health care, and the growing awareness of the benefits of natural, preventive medicine, are causing government health ministries to seek the advice of experts in Maharishi Ayur-Veda—the most ancient system of natural medicine, revived in its completeness by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme and the Global Country of World Peace.
Robert Schneider, MD—*Director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management,—with a delegation representing Maharishi Vedic Medicine, was invited by the government of India, Ministry of Health, to a conference in New Delhi recently. The topic of the conference was the promotion of Ayurveda and Indian medicine in the West. Discussion included education, research, product purity, and quality control—areas in which Maharishi Ayur-Veda is recognized as a worldwide leader. Dr Schneider and other members of the Maharishi Ayur-Veda delegation have been asked to serve on task force committees in an advisory capacity to the Government of India.
Also last month, the US National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine called together a group of leading doctors, including Dr Schneider, to discuss trends in medicine and medical education. 'This is a very conservative medical body, which advises the US government on matters of health care policy,' explained Dr Schneider. 'The health care system is suffering badly, and is threatening to bankrupt the nation. The issues raised at this meeting were: how to make the health care system cost-effective; how to prevent acute and chronic disease; and the potential of an integrated system of conventional and natural medicine—themes that Maharishi has been talking about for years.'
He continued, 'Our group has been researching and practising Maharishi's Vedic Approach to Health—prevention-oriented, cost-effective, natural medicine—for over 30 years. And now we've started this new medical school, the Maharishi College of Perfect Health. We're not just talking about reform. We're doing it!'
Dr Schneider said, 'The group was inspired by what we're doing. People are familiar with the long track record of Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Ayur-Veda. It seemed logical to them that we're the ones leading in this field, and many of the attendees want to collaborate with us.'
Dr Schneider credits the growing receptivity of the governments to the Invincible America Assembly and other coherence-creating groups around the world, who, through their practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, are raising collective consciousness, thereby enabling leaders to think more creatively about the health care crisis.
'The economics of health care, and patient demand, are forcing the medical community to reconsider their basic assumptions,' said Dr Schneider.
In the coming days Global Good News will continue Dr Schneider's report on the conference in India, Maharishi Integrative Medicine, and the Maharishi College of Perfect Health.
*Dr Robert H. Schneider is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, Dean of the Maharishi College of Perfect Health, Director of Health in the national administration of Dr John Hagelin—Raja of Invincible America, and Deputy Minister of Health for the Global Country of World Peace. He authored the book, Total Heart Health—How to Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease with the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health.
