What if I told you that your thinking is influenced?

exhausted-man

A person came to me yesterday for a consultation. He said he had a few issues and every doctor he visited put him through investigations but all reports came to be normal.

I performed his Nadi Pariksha and told him what his problems were. As he listened, he was convinced that the diagnosis was accurate. But, that was not what I wanted to communicate to you today.

I observed my diagnosis of his mind, it was something I had seen before, but it was not very common and that was the core of all his physical problems. He had this personality of doubting everything and finding the missing piece in every thing he saw. To say without jargon, he was a a doubter and a fault finder. That was his job too. But, that had become his personality.

As I probed deeper, I found that one of his parents’ had this personality and that was the genesis of my client’s behaviour.

All his physical symptoms of stiffness in his low back, stiffness in his neck and shoulders, disturbed sleep, improper digestion, slow bowel pressure, abdominal pains, pain in his hips and low Vitamin D3 levels emanated from here. He came to know how every problem had its reason to have manifested in his body.

His treatment is due to begin and I am sure he will bring himself out of his problems.

Diagnosing how emotional and psychological behaviour manifests as physical symptoms and how to diagnose them is what I help Ayurvedic Doctors learn. You too can learn Nadi Pariksha – The Sacred Science of Pulse Diagnosis.

Diagnostic evaluation is one of the most interesting subjects to study and practice. Most people working with people do not probe deep enough into evaluation because it consumes time. They instead just take an aerial view of the symptom and are quick to fix it. Read this research paper which says medical evaluation has taken a back seat since the year 2000 when modern medical diagnostic machines are perceived to replace doctors’ evaluation. Its such a mislead.

I have been teaching doctors to practice diagnosis and evaluation through Nadi Pariksha. My book – Nadi Pariksha-The Sacred Science of Pulse Diagnosis will help every Ayurvedic doctor must learn Nadi Pariksha.

And now, we plan to teach a basic version of Nadi Pariksha to every householder so that they can effectively diagnose aches and pains in the body and avoid running to a local drug store to medicate themselves, instead learn to cure their symptoms with Marma Chikitsa.

Did you know that I have a pre-launch offer for you where I am giving away my book at 40% off the listed price and its available until the 25th May. Get your copy today.

Is Ayurvedic Diagnosis moving the Allopathy way?

nadi-pariksha-hand

The advent of technology has seen innovations and inventions in almost all fields. In recent years, the market has seen the emergence of devices that diagnose the pulse. I had a personal meeting with the inventor of one such machine and also had an experience of Nadi Pariskha with one such device.

This machine is making inroads into the clinics of Ayurveda doctors and they plan to capture major market share with their aggressive marketing team.

What’s in it for an Ayurveda Doctor?

Well, the machine gives you an impressive graphical representation of the pulse. Its evaluation is an averaging of patient data that’s been collected before. I wouldn’t say it’s a conclusive evidence of a diagnosis! It’s just a gross representation. A doctor must still use his or her intellect to ascertain the correctness of the diagnosis by their own methods.

The inventor of the pulse diagnosing machine shared that his marketing team is first targeting those BAMS doctors who are weak in their diagnosis. This way, the inventor believes he is serving a purpose. The truth is that such doctors may make a quick buck by showcasing this machine and care little about their patients. The charts they’ll show their patients may add some glamour to their business.

However, its not the machine we’re talking about. The problem is elsewhere. The machines are making a headway only because of the faulty system.

Firstly, the doctors study Ayurveda shastras for 5 years. Then, they end up interning in a modern medical hospital diagnosing according to modern diagnostic methods and prescribing English medicines.

When they come out after their internship, they’ve almost forgotten everything of what they learnt about Ayurvedic Medical Sciences in the 5 years.

In short, the system doesn’t infuse value in its own practitioners. The system depletes self worth of BAMS graduates.

By thrusting this machine into the hands of the Ayurvedic doctors, the inventor hopes to increase the patient inflow of the practicing doctors thereby increasing their monthly revenues.

What do these Ayurvedic doctors stand to lose?

In the long run, these doctors are bound to forget how to evaluate the results according to Ayurveda and instead will work like lab technicians, printing computer generated reports.

A study conducted in the year 2000 evaluates how modern medical practice improved in technology and deteriorated in terms of evaluating the results causing a dent in doctors, accurately diagnosing symptoms. Here is a paragraph from the document. The whole document can be accessed from here.

Modern medical practice makes extensive use of laboratory tests, radiological imaging, and other technologies in decision-making regarding diagnosis, prognosis, monitoring, screening, and risk assessment. Despite remarkable technical testing methods and continuous improvement in analytical accuracy and precision of tests, the evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of new tests often has received only modest attention. Thus, available tests may be analytically accurate but not provide reliable clinical information for diagnosis, risk stratification, and other clinical matters.

The best way forward is that doctors learn Nadi Pariskha so that any machine invented becomes an optional tool for a Vaidya to add in their clinic or hospital. It’s like having a laptop on your desk. It’s a luxury. Not a necessity.

I proposed to the inventor that all doctors purchasing the machine must undertake training in traditional Ayurvedic Nadi Pariskha. We’re keen to train these doctors.

In conclusion, if machines make a headway, which the inventor says, is inevitable, and doctors don’t learn Nadi Pariskha, there’s a threat that they’ll replace ancient and intrinsically Ayurvedic diagnostic techniques. This may cause irreparable damage to the entire medical stream and may transform the way Ayurveda is practiced.

Medical tourism market is estimated to be valued at $ 4 billion

Foreigners come to India for tourism of 3 kinds…

Medical, Healthcare and Wellness.

#Medicaltourism has to do mainly with modern medical hospitals offering globally comparative low cost medical treatment and facility.

#Healthcare and #Wellness Tourism are main attractions of alternative medicine such as Ayurveda.

With #Ayurveda centres opening worldwide, what is it India can offer that is native and traditional. And that is #NadiPariksha.

Chinese and Tibetan medicine practitioners have scored an edge with their pulse diagnosis technique so well that they are an a select breed of practitioners today who command a market share.

Ayurveda Doctors are still battling it out after internship in modern medical hospitals. When they are fresh in the market, they’re mostly lost between Ayurveda and Modern Medicine.

Nadi Chikitsa Wellness Pvt Ltd has taken a serious initiative to train Ayurveda Doctors in Nadi Pariksha. The future holds many bright opportunities for us to capitalise on, says #MaheshKrishnamurthy, Director of #NadiChikitsa Wellness Pvt Ltd. Visit http://nadichikitsa.com/

#Healthcare and #Wellness Tourism is under-utilised by Ayurveda Doctors. With Ayurveda’s traditional diagnostic technique #NadiPariksha, we can have an edge over other countries offering Ayurvedic Treatments and Therapies that are on the common ground.

She was running 5k every morning when this happened to her

She had suffered a severe bout of migraine. A friend of her’s, who had just called her realised something was wrong and directed her call my office and schedule a consultation.

When she walked in, I saw a very fit and trim woman introduce herself. She was an avid golfer and a marathoner. She’d never had a migraine before and when it occurred, she didn’t know what was happening to her. Her vision went blur and she couldn’t hold herself together.

So, I seated her and performed her Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis). What I found didn’t surprise me, but I saw somethings happening in her body which made me enquire about her running.

She told me that she had recently developed pain in her knees. So, she visited an orthopaedic. The doctor told her that her knees were wearing out because she was running on uneven ground and that her problem aggravated with the thin sole shoes she was wearing on her runs. Her knees had begun to arrest her running. So, the doctor advised her to run on even ground and also wear thick soles shoes. She was uncomfortable with both of these suggestions. She didn’t know what to do.

I found this hard to believe. Let us infuse some hard truths into our brains. We’re a species called homo-erectus. This means, we’re a species that are meant to stand straight and running is one of the natural given abilities. And we have a pelvis (hip bone) which tilts and balances the body while the body is running through uneven ground. So, technically what the doctor said couldn’t be scientifically appropriate.

My diagnosis revealed that she was short tempered, had had challenges in her relationships. She was a go getter and very stubborn. Her sense of discipline and etiquette were high on priority. And she was angry because of her unfulfilled desires.

A verse in Ayurveda texts reads;

When a desire is left unfulfilled, feelings of unhappiness, apprehension and fear begin to manifest in the mind. These feelings cause anger and frustration which manifest as symptoms in the body.

So, I enquired about her past and she said that it all started when she was handling her second pregnancy. She didn’t have her husband’s support. He was traveling. She felt all alone. This made her feel very sad. She then wondered, what if she couldn’t resume her career soon enough. She began to demand time from her husband and this led them to quarrel frequently. Her anger and frustration increased. She got back to her career. She was successful. But her bosses gave her repetitive feedback that she was very aggressive. She couldn’t understand how. Now she had stiffness in her knee’s ligaments and tendons which created pain. Even her migraines happened for the same reason.

In my opinion, it had nothing to do with her running on uneven ground.

So, I suggested that she work on releasing her anger and also I performed Marma Chikitsa ( An superfast ayurvedic therapy to remedy aches and pains in the body and restore health) on her to improve her quality of sleep and restore her knees.

She took the therapies and treatments without delay. On day 3, she ran with her thin sole shoes and on uneven ground. Not only did she not have knee pain, she clocked the best time ever on a 5km run.

Never assume that your doctor knows it all. You must consult a Vaidya (knowledgeable healer) who knows how to find out what your body is going through and also suggests appropriate remedies. And such diagnosis is only available in Ayurveda.

His life was straight out of a movie

The other day, a principal of a reputed school called me seeking help for one of her students, a boy of 13 years. She said the boy’s parents were crying for help and that they were sitting in front of her. So, I slotted an appointment for them to come and see me the same afternoon.

The family came in. As usual the boy’s parents began complaining how their son was absenting himself from school.

I spoke to the boy in front of them. His answers were in whispers which at times I could barely hear. After about 15 minutes, I asked his parents to sit outside and had a one-to-one conversation with the boy. At first, he was hesitant. When I assured him that I don’t judge people, he began interacting.

From the hour long interaction I had with him, I realised that the boy feels unloved by his parents. He feels his parents didn’t want him. He also shared with me that he was in a hostel for two years. His story made me feel that his life was straight out of the Tare Zameen Par movie.

My interaction with the boy was almost over. I asked him to sit outside and asked for his parents to come in. When I asked his parents what they thought about their son, the father said, he wanted his son to become a doctor.

The principal had mentioned that the boy was an intelligent child and scored very well. So, I didn’t know where the problem was. And I asked the boy’s parents to continue telling me about their son. When the husband and wife started sharing information sometimes individually and sometimes together, I pieced the information together. That’s when I realised what was happening with the boy.

To make their son more studious, the parents consciously neglected him. They shared with him pictures of them with their relatives children only to get their son to be even more studious. What his parents did frustrated the boy and his mind became restless. He didn’t know where to turn to for help. He began locking himself up in his room and slept all day.

He created his comfort space. He realised he needn’t get out of his room and face the world. So, he slept all day. At night, he’d stay awake watching movies.

His parents simply didn’t get it. The father pursued his desire to make his son a doctor and put him in boarding. The first year went by. At the end of the second year, the boy refused to go back to boarding. So, they put him into this school.

I asked the boy’s mother what she felt about putting the boy into boarding and she said, she wasn’t even asked. Decision was taken by her husband.

Now that he wasn’t attending school, the father was contemplating on putting him back in boarding.

I spoke to the boy’s parents and asked them whether they were ready to lose their son! Further, I asked them what difference does it make to them with what he grew up to become! Their son was studious and responsible. I helped them see a different perspective, a different way to address the situation on hand. They saw a new possibility.

As a matter of chance I asked them, how many times have you taken your child on a holiday! They said… never.

To me, this boy was on the brink of depression. The principal had saved him in the nick of time by getting help to him.

I suggested that they first restore their love for their son and then take their son out on a picnic.

In the evening the family came and this time their daughter was also present. The father came to show himself. I performed his Nadi Pariksha. After the diagnosis, I asked him, how important is others opinion of you to you? In different words he said that was all that mattered. We had nailed the root cause of the boy’s condition.

My work with the boy’s father took more time that what I took with the boy. My work with the boy was accomplished and work with his father has just begun.

Two days later I called the principal to give an update. She answered my phone call and said I’ve done a miracle. I asked her to clarify her statement. She said, the boy has resumed school. She also mentioned that the way he wishes her a good morning reassured her that the boy was okay.

Many a time, we as parents assume that we know it all and take action which at times backfires on our children. How much do we really know? I’d like to answer this question for you… actually we know nothing. Give your children a chance. Listen to your children patiently. If you can’t do that, find someone who can help you listen to your children and also get your children back on track.

You are the best example your children can find in this world. So, be the best parent they can ever find.
