A proprietary system that incorporates transcendental meditation into the practice of ayurvedic medicine. Maharashi Ayur-Ved™ is regarded as similar to traditional ayurvedic medicine; in Maharashi Ayur-Ved™, treatment requires analysis of a person’s behaviour, consciousness, environment and physiology, using herbs, diet, massage and hatha yoga to promote healing. The system is believed to be effective for anxiety, arthritis, emotional lability, gastrointestinal complaints, headaches, hypertension, insomnia, obesity and other conditions, as well as for rejuvenation and increasing longevity.
