Maharishi Ayurveda

Ayurveda originates from the highly sophisticated 5,000 year old Indian civilisation. It is the oldest health system we know. The Sanskrit words “Ayus” means 'life' and “Veda” is “knowledge”. So, Ayurveda is the science of life.

Revival of Ayurvedaallindiacongress

Over time and foreign oppression, a lot of Ayurveda knowledge was lost. But around 30 years ago the sage Maharishi Mahesh Yogi brought together the most eminent Ayurveda doctors in India. Together with these doctors, Dr. V.M. Dwivedi, Dr. B.D. Triguna and Dr. Balraj Maharshi, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi reformed the original Ayurveda under the name of Maharishi Ayurveda. In order to do this they collected all Ayurveda knowledge in India, which had been spread among many family traditions. In the broadest sense, Maharishi Ayurveda also comprises Vedic architecture, Yoga and Vedic astrology. The All India Ayurveda Congress confirms that Maharishi Ayurveda is the authentic form of Ayurveda.

Healing and development

Maharishi Ayurveda not only focuses on healing. Prevention and development of consciousness also form an important aspect. One way to achieve this is a meditation technique which will create harmony in the consciousness: The Transcendental Meditation technique. This technique has a profound and positive influence on your mental as well as your physical wellbeing. Over 600 scientific studies confirm this effect.


Maharishi Ayurveda has been scientifically tested in around 160 studies that have been published in well established publications. Research into the herbal remedies show they are safe, can limit damage from free radicals and can enhance the normal functioning of organs and tissues. Maharishi Ayurveda products are produced using advanced technologies and comply with the highest quality standards. Research into panchakarma treatments show that patients suffering from fibromyalgia are experiencing positive effects. After a panchakarma treatment toxins such as pesticides and PCB's will have decreased by 50%. The Ayurveda concepts on health and illness are also supported by independent scientific research.
