SUMMARY OF RAJIV DIXIT’S LECTURES DAY ONE
DAY ONE - BACKGROUND
The Indian Govt has
accepted that the present system of allopathic medication is incapable of
solving the very poor health care situation in India.
Out of 120 Crore
people in India only 25 to 30 odd Crores can be termed healthy. The rest of the
population is suffering from a multitude of problems.
E.g. 10-15 Crore
Diabetics, 12-15 Crore suffer from lung ailments like Asthma, TB, Bronchitis
etc. 16-20 Crores have joint pains and bone pains. 10-15 Crores suffer from
digestion related ailments like Gastric, acidity, ulcers etc. 25-30 Crores have
eye related problems.
The total budget for
healthcare in 2007 was around Rs.1.25 lac Crores.23 lac registered
doctors are there in the country. Taking 50 patients per doctor the total
number of patients that can be treated is a miniscule part of the total number
of patients in India.
Over Rs.10 lac Crore
has been spent on training doctors. The Govt. does not have the funds to
increase the number of doctors in any significant way.
The biggest loot of
the country is happening by MNC and allopathic companies – Reportedly, various
MNCs are making absolutely crazy profits in their Indian operations – e.g.
P&G 20000% profit in India. Pepsi and coca cola is only around 1000%. Eli
Lily, another pharmaceutical giant, makes a profit of 35000% from its Indian
200 yrs back the
number of people ill was only around 10%. I.e. if we consider the number of the
ill now to be 100%. This is after taking into account the difference in
populations between then and now and is based upon the surveys conducted by the
Doctors admit that in
250 years of allopathic history the only credible thing that it has achieved is
Ayurveda says that the
patient is the best doctor for himself. All that is needed is a bit of
knowledge or information. According to Ayurveda, 85% of our health problems are
very easy to resolve and no expert help is needed for this. Only 15% of
ailments are serious enough to merit expert help.
Mharishi Waghbhat says
- APANE SHARIR KO JAAN LIJIYE AUR BHOJAN KO
I.e. know your body
and recognize/understand your food. This much is enough to take care of almost
According to Mharishi
Waghbat the highest discovery/invention is the science of food and cooking that
was done in India of yore.
The following Sootras
are based on the two books written by Mharishi Waghbhat which contained over
7000 such sootra/formulae. He lived for 135 years and reportedly took ICHCHHA
MRITYU, i.e. shed the body consciously and out of his own will.
Out of these 7000, the
below, around 50, sootras are the most relevant for modern day lifestyles and
1 – While cooking if the food doesn’t get
contact of air and sunlight then this food will work like slow poison in the
This means that
pressure cooker is very bad for health. While cooking in pressure cooker the
grains get broken and thus become soft. This does not mean getting they are
getting cooked. So the food thus prepared is useless for the body.
The molecules get
damaged and hence the food becomes useless for the body.
TB, Asthma etc. 48 ailments have been directly traced to pressure cooker by
modern scientists at CDRI/CSIR labs.
Best utensils for
cooking are clay, kaansa and peetal or bronze in that order.
Researchers at the
CDRI Lab in Lucknow (a central govt. body) have found that after cooking say
Arhar daal in Clay pots 100% of the micro nutrients originally present in the
daal are still there, 93% are left after cooking in kaansa utensils and 87%
after cooking in peetal or bronze utensils.
Whereas after cooking
the same daal in a pressure cooker only 13% of these micro nutrients are left.
Essentially what is left is worthless and unusable by the body.
Refrigerator is also
very harmful for health.
Solar cooker is the
best cooker. Those types of solar cooker should be used which have open
vessels. Aluminium vessels are common in solar cookers and should never be
The ash left after
dead body is burned contains these same 18 micro nutrients – the same as soil.
No other natural thing contains all 18.
We could have produced aluminum thousands of yrs ago. Our shastras have the techniques. But we used
clay pots since it is the best from every angle.
The longer an item
takes to ripen in the field, the longer it will take to cook at home. Pressure
cooking it will make the food useless for the body.
Nature has designed
everything with enormous attention to detail. E.g. the top of the plants are
eaten by humans and birds, middle part is for animals and roots are for the
Chronic diabetics who started
doing all their cooking in clay pots – sugar levels came down from 480 odd to
180 odd in less than a year.
