Nadi Pariksha - Pulse Diagnosis

Nadi Pariksha

Nadi Pariksha or Pulse Diagnosis is the science of nerves which includes the study of life processes that are responsible for living and existence of man. Nadi is said to be Jiva Sakshi, meaning the evidence of life.Nadi gets influenced by various affects that influence the physiology of the body , especially the three doshas. i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The nadi  mentioned here simply refers to radial artery. Not only does its gati(motion) indicate the rate or the rhythm of the pulse, the size and condition of the arterial wall, the volume of blood that flows through the artery or the force with which the blood flows,  But  the gati or the motion of this nadi also indicates the imbalance of the three doshas i.e, vata,pitta and kapha.

Nadi Pariksha is based on three parameters :

i)   Rhythm or Regularity of the Pulse

ii)  Number or Rapidity of the Pulse

iii) Size or Volume of the Pulse

The size and volume denote the condition of the blood vessel wall. Number and rhythm denote the condition and working of the heart. The size depends upon the state of kapha predominance, the rapidity upon the state of pitta predomination and the regularity on the vata condition. This is the basic idea of the influences of vata, pitta and kapha on the vessels.

Nadi Pariksha is an ancient ayurvedic technique of diagnosis through the pulse. It can accurately diagnose both physical and mental diseases as well as imbalances. It is comprehensive and reaches the root cause of health issues, not merely addressing the symptoms. Nadi Pariksha forewarns you of potential health risks.
