'Only a holistic approach that takes into consideration all aspects of mind and body together can be successful in handling health.'
— Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Maharishi University of Management has announced the launch of a new MS in Maharishi Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, to be offered online starting in autumn 2014. The program offers graduate training in the physiology, pathology, assessment, and management of health disorders from the perspective of Maharishi Ayurveda, with introductions to other major systems of natural medicine.
Ayurveda is the world's oldest and most complete system of natural health care. Maharishi Ayurveda is a comprehensive, prevention-oriented approach to health care based on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's revival of Ayurveda, the traditional system of natural medicine in India. Ayurveda, or ''Science of Life'', includes knowledge and technologies to restore health from the levels of mind, body, and environment.
This degree will give systematic and advanced practical training in the many natural, time-tested modalities of Maharishi Ayurveda. The first courses provide an overview of the entire curriculum. The eight central courses each focus on one of the eight major organ systems of the body. Students will gain an understanding of the main disorders of that system from both modern medicine and Ayurveda perspectives. Specifically, students will learn:
∙ Maharishi Ayurveda anatomy and physiology in context of the eight major organ systems
∙ Comprehensive Ayurvedic health assessment techniques, including traditional pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis, AyurVedic health history, assessment of mind-body type
∙ Individualized diet and lifestyle recommendations for mind-body types and disorders
∙ Therapeutics for mind, body and environment from Maharishi AyurVeda to prevent and treat common and chronic disorders, including:
- Herbal supplements especially beneficial for specific imbalances and organ systems
- Traditional purification therapies (Pancha Karma)
- Five sense therapies (touch, smell, sight, taste, sound)
- Principles of Vedic Architecture
- Principles of biological rhythms and their effects on health - Maharishi Jyotish
- Principles of Vedic exercise, including Maharishi Yoga asanas
∙ An introduction to the clinical applications of Traditional Chinese medicine, Homeopathy, Osteopathic manipulative therapy, Chiropractic, other natural medical systems and modern integrative medicine
Students will also gain skills in clinical practice and integration with a five-day, in-residence intensive at the end of each year of study.
The program is designed for licensed health professionals or those who have education, training, and experience in a health-related field.
The goal of this program is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge to enliven the body's inner intelligence—the field of pure consciousness—for prevention and treatment of illness, and promotion of ideal health. One of the highlights of this program is that all students will learn to practice the Transcendental Meditation technique, one of the most important mind-body modalities used in Maharishi AyurVeda.
The MS in Maharishi AyurVeda and Integrative Medicine builds on the strengths of the University in teaching and practicing Maharishi AyurVeda for the last 25 years, and its 25 years of NIH funded research in integrative medicine. The faculty includes physicians, researchers, and eminent Ayurvedic experts and clinicians, all with decades of experience.
