The upcoming training course in Lebanon—Ayurveda For Health Professionals: Principles of Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment in Maharishi Ayurveda—is designed to give heath professionals practical skills and knowledge required in the changing environment of modern health care.

The course announcement describes how Maharishi Ayurveda—the comprehensive and modern formulation of the world's oldest system of natural health care—answers to the need for 'integrative medicine' approaches that are both evidence-based and supported by published scientific research.

Phase I begins 3 December in Beirut, and is offered to health professionals throughout the Middle East. Please see Part I of this article, which gives an overview of the course. The course description continues:

Evidence-Based Practices
The changing environment of health care is now placing greater emphasis on integrative approaches to treating patients. These approaches have the potential to improve the health of a large number of patients, while reducing overall health care costs. However, it's important that physicians and other health care providers incorporate integrative practices that are evidence-based and supported in the published literature. This course will present an evidence-based approach to integrative medicine, providing training in the time-tested and practical approaches of Maharishi Ayurveda.
