Maharishi Ayur-Veda offers good health through hundreds of rejuvenating treatments at Maharishi spas and Health Centres around the world, as well as simple steps to maintain good health at home.

Dr Lothar Pirc, Director of the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre - Bad Ems, Germany, who is currently assisting with expansion and renovation of Maharishi spas in many countries, emphasized the importance of regularly purifying the physiology through these specialized rejuvenating treatments—called Panchakarma—ideally at every change of season.

There are two types of toxins, Dr Pirc explained. One is water soluble and can be eliminated through such means as diet, fluids, and exercise.

The other type is stored in fat tissues, and (aside from breast-feeding mothers, who then pass them on to their babies), 'the only way that is known to get rid of these toxins is really Panchakarma'. Otherwise they remain in the body for about 50 years, he said.

A double-blind study conducted several years ago in the United States examined the purification provided by Maharishi Ayur-Veda Panchakarma treatments by comparing a group of about 50 people, receiving 12 days of treatments, to a control group of about 50 people participating in a health education programme. Toxins in the blood such as pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals, remained unchanged for the control group, while the group receiving Panchakarma treatments had an average reduction in toxins of 51%. This is significant for maintaining good health, as these toxins are correlated with heart disease, cancer, and allergies, Dr Pirc said.

Simple steps such as sipping hot water throughout the day and taking Maharishi Amrit Kalash—a powerful antioxidant, which has been shown to be up to 1,000 times more effective than Vitamins C and E—also help maintain good health, Dr Pirc said.

Guests at Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centres worldwide will soon have access to a video course created by Dr Pirc's wife, Dr Karin Pirc, and Dr Robert Keith Wallace, about how to maintain the benefits of their stay by utilizing Maharishi Ayur-Veda at home.
