Maharishi Ayurveda offers the gold standard for Patient Centred Care. Cancers, heart disease, diabetes and obesity are lifestyle issues. Medicines do not heal or prevent these modern epidemics. Patient Centred Care is coming to centre stage as the appropriate strategy for prevention and health care. Maharishi Ayurveda offers a time tested, evidence based, economically feasible approach in primary care for health promotion, disease prevention and treatment.
