Thousands of years before the modern Stethoscope was invented, Ayurvedic physicians in India knew the ways and methods to do what the Stethoscope does and more. The stethoscope magnifies the internal sounds of the body. The learned ancient physicians did exactly the same. Their apparatus was their adept fingers. By placing the fingers on the wrists of a patient, they listened intently to the pulse of the patient. They ascertained and compared the rate of the pulse with that of a normal one and could pin point the ailment.
Ayurvedic physicians used the pulse to determine the imbalances in the three doshas, namely vata, pitta and kapha. The balance of prana, tejas and ojas could also be identified by the proper study of the pulse. This proven method of diagnosis has no side effects as it does not employ the use of any radiation or chemicals. This ancient method of diagnosis has been passed on to future generations through well authored texts. Proper and thorough study of the texts gives even the modern physician all the necessary insights into studying the pulse to ascertain the imbalance in the doshas, thus ascertaining the ailment of a patient.
Pulse has been defined as the rhythmic throbbing of the arteries as blood is propelled through them. The rate of the heart beat can be known through the pulse. In Ayurveda however, it is through the pulse that diagnosis is made
Ayurvedic pulse reading is done by placing index, middle and ring finger on the wrist. Through this, the physician determines the imbalances in the three doshas, namely vata, pitta and kapha. The balance of prana, tejas and ojas can also be known by studying the pulse.
Pulse diagnosis has been detailed in ancient texts. Proper study and practice gives the physician the exact nature of the ailment in a patient. Dr. Shaji of Punarjanis has specialized in the field of pulse diagnosis. His relentless study into the science and constant practice has made him a expert in the field, thus giving him the authority to train others on pulse diagnosis.
Pulse diagnosis gives the physician the exact nature of the imbalances in the three doshas. A patient is treated after the diagnosis in such a way that this imbalance is normalized. Ayurveda prescribes that a perfect balance of the three doshas frees a person of any illness.
