The course outline gives an overview of Maharishi Ayur-Veda:
What is Maharishi Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the world's oldest continuously practiced tradition of medicine, and has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a valid and sophisticated system of natural health care. Maharishi Ayurveda is the ancient and timeless Vedic approach to health brought to light in this scientific age for the full value of its theory and practice by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, in conjunction with the world's foremost experts in Ayurvedic medicine and experts in modern medicine.
Maharishi Ayurveda is a natural, prevention-oriented system of medicine, free from negative side effects, that takes into account all the factors that influence health and includes mental, physical, behavioural, and environmental approaches for prevention and cure, for both individual and collective health. All the 40 aspects of Veda and the Vedic Literature are used to create balance in the different areas of life. The therapeutic modalities include meditation therapy, sound and music therapy, aroma therapy, colour and , herbal and dietary therapies, daily and seasonal routines, pulse diagnosis, exercise and Yoga therapy, massage therapy, seasonal purification and detoxification procedures, Vedic astrology, and Vedic architecture.
Maharishi Ayurveda is Consciousness-Based Medicine, founded on the recent scientific discovery that consciousness or intelligence is at the basis of the physiology. The goal of all the different approaches is to enliven the body's inner intelligence, which is understood to be a unified organizing principle at the basis of all physiological self-repair and healing mechanisms.
Over the past 30 years, many physicians have been trained worldwide and several hundred scientific research studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals on the efficacy, safety, and treatment components of Maharishi Ayurveda, including the Transcendental Meditation Technique, specific herbal preparations, and physiological purification procedures. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the US has funded over $24 million in grant support for research on the Transcendental Meditation Technique and other Maharishi Ayurveda modalities in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
''This course has given me a new approach to all my patients—simple and complete. It offers them a chance to participate in their own healthcare and to understand the healing process.'' — Michael Clements, MD; Geriatric medicine, Ruidoso, NM, USA
