Commenting on the occasion, Dr KK Aggarwal said, “I am honored to receive such a prestigious award from the Ministry of External Affairs, Govt of India. Vedic scientific knowledge incorporates science behind rituals, religion, and festivals. As per the Vedic philosophy incorporating parasympathetic breathing and exercises in one’s everyday life can reduce the disease duration, requirement of modern medicine drugs and help prevent most lifestyle disorders.”
Alloveda is a book that Dr Aggarwal has authored on Vedic knowledge in allopathic language. The book, in Hindi, explains how Vedic knowledge can be synergistically used in modern practice. For example; chanting of vowels produces interleukin 2 and chanting of nasal consonants produces delta activity in the EEG and hence all sounds with a mix of a vowel and a nasal consonant will produce mental and physical relaxation. Dr Aggarwal also explains Adwait Ramayana in modern science language, linking mind, body and soul concept. He emphasises the role of parasympathetic lifestyle and breathing. Any activity, which can bring one from a sympathetic to parasympathetic mode, can help healing.
