Mumbai 10th October 2014: A spiritual prescription involves treating a patient’s physical, emotional, social, and spiritual elements as an integrated whole and not just freeing a person’s physical body from disease. Speaking about the new age concept of Spiritual Prescription and the correlation between spirituality and healthcare, renowned cardiologist, spiritual writer, inspirational speaker and President of the Heart Care Foundation of India, Dr KK Aggarwal today left over 2500 insurance agents enthralled while delivering anInaugural Guest Lecture on Spiritual Prescriptions at Shanmukhananda Auditorium, Mumbai.

He is also a Limca Book of World Record holder for the maximum number of people trained in the lifesaving technique of hands-only CPR in one go.
Speaking on the occasion Dr. KK Aggarwal, Sr. National Vice President and Honorary General Secretary Elect, Indian Medical Association and President of the Heart Care Foundation of India said, “It is possible to reduce the dose of an allopathic medicine thereby reducing their side effects and enhancing their efficacy. The Vedic sciences originating from the Vedas can provide answers to many unsolved questions in allopathic medicine. For example, in the early Vedic era, no one suffered from heart attack despite Indians being prone to getting a heart attack. The spiritual prescription during the early Vedic era was to not eat carbohydrates every day. People of that time observed traditional spiritual fasts where they did not eat carbohydrates once a week, once a month and for nine days twice a year during the Navratras.”
“The spiritual prescription of eating Gur Chana during the fast observed by women on every Friday was to correct anemia in them. The ritual of Shahi Snan was made during that era so that people could have sun bath early in the morning to prevent vitamin D deficiency.”
Dr Aggarwal also taught the formula of CPR-10 to the audience at the lecture. The mantra is as below:
Within 10 minutes of death (earlier the better), at least for at least 10 minutes, longer the better (adults 25 minutes and children 35 minutes), compress the centre of the chest of the deceased person continuously (uninterrupted) and effectively (1½ inch) with a speed of 10×10 = 100 per minute.
