Contemporary Ayur Veda Summary


Contemporary Ayur Veda: Medicine and Research in Maharishi Ayur-Veda by H. Sharma

There is enormous interest in Maharishi Ayur Veda (MAV), or Indian Traditional Medicine, in the USA, not least because of its incorporation of Transcendental Meditation. However, this is not the only therapeutic aspect of MAV. In the 1950's the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi collected information from the classic texts and formed a modern, coherent approach (first published in the West by Penguin). A large amount of medical and science-based research has been undertaken specifically on aspects of MAV. This book aims to present a coherent exploration and review of both the principles and practice of MAV, as well as the research outcomes which support and illuminate practice. It is not a treatment manual, but it does present a foundation for understanding the principles and practice of MAV, both within specific medical specialties and generally in health promotion and disease prevention.
