On 21 August 2007 The New Straits Times Press, Online reported: Traditional, natural healthcare is becoming increasingly mainstream in Malaysia. The Malaysian government will soon open a Wellness Centre in Putrajaya that will offer modern medicine along with a variety of natural healthcare including Ayurveda 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.

Visitors to the Wellness Centre will have the opportunity consult allopathic doctors as well as 'world renowned traditional and complementary medicine practitioners,' the article quoted Dr Nor Shahidah, chief executive officer of the Malaysian National Institute for Natural Products, Vaccines, and Biologicals, as saying.

'We will also promote Transcendental Meditation,' the article quoted Dr Nor Shahidah as saying. 'This meditation promotes peaceful living—and is also a supportive therapy for people who have mental stress, suffer from chronic diseases such as cancer, and for general well-being. '

'The Wellness Centre is timely as Malaysians, as with people from all over the world, are increasingly turning to the old and tested ways when it comes to health,' the article stated.

The article reported that 'consumer spending on traditional and complementary medicine had risen from RM272 million in 2000 to almost RM400 million currently.'

According to the Director-general of Health, Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican, 'integrating traditional and complementary medicine into the Malaysian healthcare system would result in a more holistic approach to treatment,' the article stated.

'The Wellness Centre' the article reported 'is dedicated to providing optimum health care using the best methods of modern and complementary medicine.'

'Malaysia's approach is now towards integrated medicine where people can benefit from both systems,' Dr Ismail was quoted as saying.

'Integrated medicine, Dr Ismail said, focused on health and healing rather than disease and treatment,' the article stated.
