An ayurvedic consultation: Nadi Pariksha
Nadi Pariksha or pulse diagnosis is a technique in which the Ayurveda physician places three fingers on the patient’s wrist. This way, the physician can very accurately determine both the physical and mental condition of the patient, as well as possible imbalance(s). Even possible risks for future health problems can be determined. Through Nadi Pariksha, the root cause of complaints becomes evident. Therefore, it becomes possible to treat the cause, rather than just the symptoms.
Ayurveda specialist Kiran Valsan explains that diseases develop in six stages. The order of these stages never changes:
Kiran Valsan: “In every regular medical science, a disease is diagnosed only in the fourth or fifth stage. With pulse diagnosis, we can recognize it in a much earlier stage. The sooner the signs of a disease is discovered, the easier it is to prevent the disease from developing and manifesting itself.””
To prevent is better than to cure!
