The Department of Physiology and Health is part of the Maharishi College of Perfect Health. The department offers courses of study leading to three degree options:
Our Unique Approach    

“Only a holistic approach that takes into consideration all aspects of mind and body together can be successful in handling health. As every aspect of life is the expression of Natural Law, the approach to health must be based on the knowledge of the origin and evolution of Natural Law — guiding principles of intelligence upholding the balanced functioning of the human physiology.” — Maharishi

The goal of any system of health care, to create healthy individuals and a disease-free society, can be achieved only through complete knowledge of Natural Law — the principles forming the total organizing power of Nature responsible for the whole manifest universe. Until now, medical practice has been limited in its effectiveness and dangerous in its side effects because it makes use of only isolated Laws of Nature.

Maharishi Consciousness-BasedSM Health Care, based on total knowledge of Natural Law (Veda), has as its fundamental principle that in order to prevent sickness and disease, the inner intelligence of every aspect of the physiology must be maintained in its full alertness, its full vitality.

This inner intelligence consists of the fundamental structures of Natural Law — the 40 aspects of Veda and the Vedic Literature — that govern human physiology and the whole universe. The profound and practical application of this knowledge to health helps to bring all aspects of individual life into harmony with Natural Law — the basis for maintaining health and creating a disease-free society.

Over 600 scientific research studies, conducted at 200 universities and research institutes in 30 countries, document the benefits of Maharishi Consciousness-BasedSM Health Care for improved physiological, psychological, social, and environmental health.

The Field of Intelligence at the Basis of Health

Maharishi Consciousness-BasedSM Health Care approaches the problems of prevention and cure from the source of health, the most fundamental field of intelligence in Nature — known in modern science as the Unified Field of Natural Law — which governs every level of existence, from subatomic particles, to the human body, to the galactic universe. It is the lack of integration between the individual’s physiology and this underlying field of intelligence that causes disorder and disease.

All the specific programs, procedures, and technologies used in Maharishi Consciousness-BasedSM Health Care help restore this integration to create a balanced state of health — perfect synchrony between the functioning of every individual cell and the holistic functioning of the whole body, and between the holistic intelligence of the body and cosmic intelligence, which is managing the orderly evolution of the universe without a problem.

Discovery of the Total Intelligence of Natural Law in Human Physiology

Maharishi Consciousness-BasedSM Health Care has been revived at this time by the profound insights into the Total Knowledge of Natural Law brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi over the past 40 years. Based on Maharishi’s work in the field of consciousness, Professor Tony Nader, M.D., Ph.D., discovered that the different aspects of human physiology form an exact replica of the patterns of intelligence expressed in the impulses of sound in Veda and Vedic Literature.

Veda and the Vedic Literature, expressing the total potential of Natural Law, are the “blueprints” for understanding human physiology — from the profound level of DNA as the first expression of intelligence in the body, to the cells and tissues, to the organs and autonomic systems structuring the whole physiology — and the relationship of individual life to society, to the environment, and even to the extended environment of the cosmos.

It is on the basis of complete knowledge of Natural Law that the Department of Physiology and Health can offer students the practical means to help create a disease-free, healthy, and enlightened society.

"When the total intelligence of Natural Law—Veda—is lively in the individual physiology, there is perfect synchrony between the functioning of every individual cell and the holistic functioning of the body as a whole; and between individual intelligence and Cosmic Intelligence. In this state of complete integration, all thought and action are spontaneously in harmony with Natural Law and the individual enjoys perfect health." — Maharishi
