Maharishi AyurVeda® Consultations

Ayurveda is the world’s oldest and most comprehensive system of natural medicine and is the traditional system of medicine of India.

Maharishi AyurVeda (MAV) is the modern revival of the complete and authentic practice of Ayurveda by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the TM technique. Maharishi AyurVeda returns Ayurveda to its original consciousness-basedSM approach and includes practice of the TM technique as its foundational recommendation.

The key Maharishi AyurVeda goal of all recommendations is to balance and enliven the inner intelligence of the body responsible for its natural healing ability.

Maharishi AyurVeda consultations include:

1. Creating a Maharishi AyurVeda Health Profile – a Personalized Approach

MAV consultations provide personalized health where recommendations are matched to the individual’s unique mind-body characteristics

Through questionnaires, Ayurvedic pulse assessment and meeting with your physician the practitioner determines your MAV Personal profile including, body type, digestive type, imbalances in the key principles of biological intelligence and status of the need for cleansing programs.

2. Mind-Body medicine

The Maharishi AyurVeda approach is to strengthen the body’s innate healing ability and enliven its inner intelligence responsible for maintaining the proper functioning of all aspects of the physiology. The Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) technique is the most powerful technique in Maharishi AyurVeda to accomplish this. When during the TM practice the mind transcends toward its source the experience enlivens the inner intelligence of the body as the first, and most important step, in the MAV approach.
