Ayurveda. Mind & Body
Well before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body relationship, the Rishis of India developed Ayurveda, which is still one of the world’s most cultivated, effective mind-body health systems.
Ayurveda is the science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = knowledge) designed to help people stay healthy while realising their full human potential.
Freedom from dis-ease is helped by increasing our awareness of the balance of mind and body.
In this episode, Dr. Tony Nader addresses the third International Ayurveda Congress, hosted by the Brazilian Government in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The congress, attended by thousands of government leaders and senior delegates, was an important step in the integration of traditional and complementary medicines, such as Ayurveda, into the National Health System.
Dr Nader, in his medical and scientific career, was able to work with and learn from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who was instrumental in reviving the Vedic science of health, Ayurveda, with development of consciousness at its core.
Ultimately, development of consciousness is the most essential approach to ensure that all methods of treatment become effective.
