The University of Massachusetts in the USA is hosting two special lectures 5 and 6 May by Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, FABMR—one of the world's leading authorities on natural medicine.

Dr Schneider's lecture is titled 'Mind, body, environment, and consciousness in Ayurveda: A scientific perspective—for everyone'. It is being presented by the U Mass–Dartmouth Center for Indic Studies, as part of its 2011 spring seminar series on Ayurveda and Health: Ayurveda in America: Ancient roots—Modern branches.

Dr Schneider is director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention and Dean of the Maharishi College of Perfect Health at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.

He has directed US$25 million in research grants from the National Institutes of Health and private foundations on Ayurveda and integrative medicine, authored more than 100 professional papers, and been featured in more than 1,000 media reports, including CNN Headline News, ABC's 20/20, New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and Time Magazine.

In his presentation, Dr Schneider will describe how, despite advances in modern medicine, chronic diseases are the leading cause of death and disability, and hazardous side effects of conventional medicine make it the third leading cause of death.

Ayurveda, he will explain, is the world's oldest and most comprehensive system of natural health care, modeled on consciousness as the basis of mind, body, and environment.

Dr Schneider will show how classical Ayurvedic texts describe this holistic science, how these ancient descriptions have been implemented in modern times, and present current scientific research that validates them.

Dr Schneider is also the author of Total Heart Health: How to Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and its Risk Factors with the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health (Basic Health Publications, 2006,

The lectures are free and open to the public. For further information, contact:
