Our Mission

Living in challenging times from the perspective of healthcare, CBM endeavors to advance scientific knowledge and technologies for health promotion and risk mitigation through harnessing modern and traditional sciences, nurturing professionals to be the leaders of health promotion in their respective specialties, and 

empowering people/community for active participation in their own health matters. 

White Structure

Our Initiatives

Key initiatives for translating research and innovation include 

  • Innovative training programs since 2005 (workshops, conferences, courses, fellowships)  for empowerment of stakeholders -  healthcare professionals and medical specialists on one hand and patients, caregivers and volunteers on the other

  • Scientific  advancement of  Mind-Body Medicine

  • Promotion of  technology for  Predictive Medicine i.e. detection of risk of  complications in advance for making prevention possible

  • Publications to support researchers

  • CBM is home to two consortia viz. the Integrative Mind-Body Medicine (I-MBM), and the Traditional Science of Self-regulation (TSSR) which includes Yoga & Ayurveda

School/consortium of Integrative Mind-Body Medicine  (I-MBM)

CBM's innovative contribution to the practice of Mind-Body & Integrative Medicine includes development of:

  • Conceptual model of Health

  • Method of clinical assessment  (clinimetrics) and intervention

  • Yoga-based Neuro-Regulation Training (YB-NRT) addressing therapeutic targets of autonomic, cognitive and biomechanical regulation

  • CBM collaborates with national & international institutions & professional bodies to advance the agenda of Mind-Body & Integrative Medicine, which includes research and training.

Predictive medicine for risk mitigation

Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is at the core of regulation of vital functions/physiology and its dysfunction is major driver of disease progression and  complications in NCDs e.g. cardiovascular complications in diabetes. Heart Rate Variability (HRV), which is quantitative measure of cardiac autonomic modulation, is valuable for prediction of risk of complications in NCDs and in other conditions of public health concern like pregnancy and aging. CBM supported development of ambulatory Tele-HRV technology suitable for mass application in clinics and community, and Machine Learning/AI supported assessment of risk of Coronary Artery Disease especially in Diabetes so as to intervene early. 

Community connect & training initiatives

Community connect & MBM training initiatives have been the bedrock of  CBM's work and include

  • Workshops for patients & caregivers

  • Workshops for community volunteers

  • Training programs/courses for healthcare professionals including Yoga trainers in India and Germany

  • Training of medical residents & psychology trainees

  • International conferences /symposia/workshops and fellowship programs for medical professionals in collaboration with national medical associations

School/consortium of Traditional Science of Self-regulation (TSSR) and the Neuroscience of Yoga (NSOY) program

The objective of TSSR is fostering deeper understanding of the traditional sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda with a view to supporting advancement of modern healthcare.  

The Neuroscience of Yoga (NSOY) Program, which represents interpretation of Yoga through the lens of modern science evolved through the Indo-German Collaboration since 2005. 

Researching Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) modulation through Yoga practice has been one of the important facets of the NSOY research which generated valuable insights for formulating Yoga-Based Neuro-Regulation Training (YB-NRT) interventions especially useful for NCDs.
