In a recent update on the status of Maharishi Ayur-Veda health care, Dr Stuart Rothenberg, a medical doctor and expert in Ayurveda, spoke of the increased acceptance of alternative medical approaches today.
Ayurveda in general is gaining acceptance, Dr Rothenberg remarked. There is a large and growing interest in Ayurveda as people in Europe and North America are discovering it.
In addition, people are recognizing the 'unique authenticity of Maharishi Ayur-Veda'—a modern revival of this ancient, complete system of natural health care.
Perhaps due to this recognition, Maharishi Ayur-Veda Association of America has now established a relationship with one of the top integrative medicine teaching programmes in the world: Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine in San Diego, California.
'The directors of that centre saw very clearly the unique aspects of Maharishi Ayur-Veda and especially the element of consciousness,' said Dr Rothenberg, who is Director of Health Professional Training at MAAA.
'They are very forward-thinking doctors and professors and they collaborated with us to offer Maharishi Ayur-Veda training courses for medical doctors and other licensed health professionals.
'That programme has grown and grown and been very successful. It was approved for what's called CME (continuing medical education) credit, which is a real seal of approval; it's the credit that every doctor must accumulate in order to remain licensed.'
This means that doctors can take training courses in Maharishi Ayur-Veda as part of the credit they must acquire to remain up-to-date in the medical field.
Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine just completed the second year of their Maharishi Ayur-Veda training course and has renewed the programme again—so it will now be offered for the third year in a row.
