In the last fifty years, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (founder of Transcendental Meditation) and the world’s foremost Ayurvedic physicians have worked together to revive the most ancient knowledge of natural health care.

Maharishi Ayurveda (MAV) is a revival of one of the most ancient and complete systems of natural health care. It clarifies the central importance of the mind-body relationship for health and provides us with a wide range of time-honoured practical techniques to enliven powerful natural healing responses in both mind and body.

Many doctors around the world are now convinced of the power of Maharishi Ayurveda, which sees perfect health as man’s natural state, and recognises no limits to the healing potential inherent in the human organism.

‘Ayurveda’ – which means, roughly, the ‘science of life’ -comes from the ancient Vedic tradition of India, and has enjoyed a continuous tradition of clinical practice over more than 5000 years. Unfortunately, most Ayur-Vedic physicians today use only a very limited range of this system’s complete and full riches. Over the past decade, however, Ayurveda has been restored to its former completeness in a global effort inspired and led by His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation (TM).

Maharishi Ayurveda is prevention-oriented, free from harmful side-effects and capable of treating disease at its source. It can legitimately claim to be both scientific and truly holistic, employing 20 systematic approaches to health from the angles of mind, body, behaviour and environment. MAV therapies do not conflict with either conventional or complementary methods, so they can be successfully employed alongside other systems of healing, if desired.
