Ayurveda is the world’s oldest holistic science of health, originating in India thousands of years ago. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s revival of Ayurvedic knowledge—known as Maharishi Ayurveda—has helped spur worldwide scientific interest in Ayurveda and is contributing to the current trend toward more natural, holistic healthcare.
Maharishi Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of healthcare that considers mind, body, consciousness, behavior, and environment, working in harmony with standard medical treatments.
The mind plays a primary role in one’s overall state of health. This is why Maharishi Ayurveda prescribes the Transcendental Meditation technique first and foremost to bring peace and balance to mind and body.
In the late 1970s, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi invited India’s most renowned and experienced Ayurvedic physicians to share their knowledge with one another and integrate the best practices from their various family traditions—lineages dating back many centuries.
These master physicians of Ayurveda worked with Maharishi over many years to revive the complete understanding from the original Ayurvedic texts, including the knowledge of proper cultivation, preparation, and use of indigenous herbs. Western-trained medical doctors and researchers collaborated with these Ayurvedic experts to conduct scientific studies on the effectiveness of herbal formulations and other Ayurvedic techniques.
The result was Maharishi Ayurveda, the most comprehensive and effective system of Ayurveda—recently affirmed by the All-India Ayurveda Congress as the “authentic interpretation of Ayurveda in its complete and original form.” These authentic, powerful herbal health solutions are offered by Maharishi Ayurveda Products International (MAPI).
