Health Treatments from India

Instead of simply choosing one of 1,000’s of destinations for your

next getaway, why not stay at the Maharishi Ayurveda Health

Center for a vacation that could change your life!

This amazing health and wellness center is not like any other I

have ever seen in over 25 years of reviewing spas and wellness

centers.  Everything about the center is different.

They are the only health center in the United States that

specializes in the holistic Ayurveda approach to health and



Western doctors usually

treat medical problems after their patient’s are ill while

Maharishi Ayurveda seeks to balance the body and mind

naturally in order to prevent illness before

there are any symptoms.


In keeping with their philosophy, “Health Begins Within”,

Maharishi Ayurveda’s Vaidya (pronounced “Vigh-dyah”), an

eastern Ayurvedac physician, guides the program of spa health

treatments, meals, meditation, lectures,

and activities individually

created especially for each person.


As every new guest begins their health program by arranging a

consultation with the Vaidya, Vaidya Jagtdish Vaidya,

I entered his office.  He was dressed in traditional long white

Indian clothing. Soft spoken yet well respected in his field,

the Vaidya asked me questions which western doctors usually do

not discuss along with the typical information.

He wanted to know about my occupation, lifestyle, interests,

meals, health problems, where I was born, and more.

Vaidyas study the whole person and all aspects that

affect their life.


The Vaidya took my pulse with three fingers (Nadivigyan

technique), not to count the beats of the

heart as is the common practice in the west.

He felt the Vata, Pitta and Kapha pulse to identify any imbalances

or abnormal states in different parts of the human body.

This is more than just counting the beats.

They feel advance warning signs of medical problems can be

determined from the pulse.


Vaidya Jagtdish explains, “Every person is looking for longevity

and happiness.  Ayurveda means the knowledge and

science of life.


Eastern and Western doctors ultimately are all doing something

about life. We each follow our ancient or traditional knowledge

like custodians.”


In the environment of their beautiful historic hundred year old

mansion, the surrounding 200 acre forest

and friendly staff, you can relax and enjoy

the experience.

    The care and attention I’ve received from Vaidyas and Ayurvedic consultants has been very comprehensive, integrated and helped me (along with my TM practice) know balance and good health! The therapies that Ayurvedic spas offer are deeply nourishing (oh yeah!!)…I have had treatments at The Raj (an Ayurvedic Spa in Fairfield, Iowa) and highly recommend the experience. For me what ayurveda has to offer is complete health care that transforms.

    I feel you could probably teach a class on how to make a great blog. This is fantastic! I have to say, what really got me was your design. You certainly know how to make your blog more than just a rant about an issue. Youve made it possible for people to connect. Good for you, because not that many people know what they are doing.

AYURVEDA-5,000 Year Old Health Treatments (Continued)

The Vaidya feels, "People seek something  better

for their health to bring their balance back."

Since these are such wonderful spa treatments at the

health center

you can come just for your choice of the spa

treatments, or take

the treatments the Vaidya recommends.

If you have 3-5-or-21 days, the whole

Panchakarma core therapy

program is available with some preparation before

you arrive.

The Vaidya places importance on paying

attention to prevention,

the first and major goal in Ayurveda,

"We try to avoid danger before it arrives.

If our clients can follow these simple routines

in their daily lives,

they may be able to reverse the imbalances early.

When a patient goes to a western doctor with

a pain but nothing is

apparent on their blood test or other tests,

the patient goes home.

One year later diabetes or other

medical disorders may manifest

themselves in the patient's body."

Food is the primary thing in life as life starts

with food.

Many of the foods we eat cause problems

in the body.

The Ayurvedic way of meal preparation

and diet helps

to aid in digestion.

I was quite impressed with

Vaidya Jagdish became he seemed so

dedicated to his work.

Not only did the Vaidya see me

for the initial one-hour

consultation, but he followed my

exercise, dining, and

spa routine during my stay

to keep checking

that everything was alright as

he did with all of their guests.

I even incorporated

some of his suggestions into my diet after

returning to Las Vegas.

Whether you visit the Maharishi Ayurveda Health

Center or not,

everyone wants to feel good and be healthy

so why not start now?

Born in India, the Vaidya, Jagdish Vaidya,

was born into a long line

of Ayurvedic physicians.

He served as director of an Ayurvedic hospital

in India and has

many years experience in the United States.

Vaidya Jagdish serves

as the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center's

Ayurvedic expert.
