What is Maharishi Ayurveda?

Maharishi Ayurveda is a holistic and comprehensive system of health care that is derived from the Vedic tradition of India. It emphasises prevention for maintaining radiant health and balanced mind and emotions.

Maharishi Ayurveda awakens your body’s innate intelligence and repair mechanisms to create balance in an individual by considering many facets of life, including the mind, body, behaviour and environment. It is personalized integrative medicine that uses prevention to elimiate chronic disease.

Ayurveda holds that disease is primarily the result of imbalances and impurities that accumulate in the body over time. The specialty of Ayurveda is in diagnosing imbalances at an early stage—before symptoms of disease arise—eliminating those imbalances from the body, and teaching each person how to live a healthy, balanced life, according to their unique mind/body makeup.

A proper understanding of Maharishi Ayurveda includes

  1. Knowing the importance of prevention Recognizing that food is medicine: the right food at the right time can create balance
  2. Emphasizing the importance of good digestion
  3. Utilizing the healing power of herbs
  4. Practising healthy daily and seasonal routines
