On 22 January 2005 WebMD reported:
Many health and beauty treatments now popular in the US are in fact ancient treatments from India. In an overview of traditional Indian modalities, Maharishi Vedic Medicine was featured as a natural approach to enhancing health through a holistic approach that includes diet, herbal remedies, yoga, and the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of health.
WebMD interviewed Dr Nancy Lonsdorf, medical director of The Raj, Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center in Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa. Dr Lonsdorf said that she had seen Maharishi Vedic Health Care 'go from being on the fringe to being totally mainstream for prevention of serious illness'. She also said, 'There is a real, great appreciation that something natural is needed to enhance health and I have seen the use of ayurvedic medicine grow tremendously.'
Lonsdorf told the interviewer, 'I see that this medical approach is going to continue to gain popularity and eventually be used as the primary approach to any chronic condition and prevention.'
The article also noted that the appreciation of Indian knowledge has increased to the point that there is now an actual city—Maharishi Vedic City in Iowa—built according to Vedic principles. The city uses nontoxic construction materials and all buildings face east. Vedic City is home to Maharishi University, as well as to The Raj, Maharishi Vedic Health Center. Lonsdorf also pointed out that the Transcendental Meditation Programme, a facet of Maharishi Vedic Medicine, is now offered in schools, hospitals, law firms, government, corporate offices, and prisons around the world.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
