Maharishi University of Management professor Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, was recently invited to deliver a two-hour afternoon seminar on Maharishi Ayurveda and heart health at the annual meeting of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association.

While contemporary Ayurvedic practice is often centered on herbs and is relatively materialistic, Dr. Schneider, dean of the Maharishi College of Perfect Health, introduced the broader and more fundamental program of Maharishi Ayurveda, which comprises 40 approaches to creating health on the levels of mind, body, and environment—all based in consciousness.

"This was the first time they've heard this perspective, which is derived from the original texts of Ayurveda, such as Charak Samhita, and from the most modern understandings of medicine and physics," Dr. Schneider said.

Afterward, a board member of the association commented, "I especially appreciated your fluency in translating between Ayurvedic and conventional medical terms. As I look back over the years of NAMA conferences that I have attended, your presentation definitely stands out among those supported by rigorous scientific research."



Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, FABMR is Dean, Chair, and Professor of Physiology and Health at Maharishi University of Management, Co-Director of the Ph.D. Program in Physiology, and Director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention.

Dr. Schneider is a physician researcher specializing in the field of natural medicine. For more than a decade, he and his collaborators have examined the efficacy of Maharishi Ayurveda and the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique for the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases, especially hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Dr. Schneider is one of the founding faculty of the Department of Physiology and Health, and a consultant to the National Institutes of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention on natural medicine.
