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.

What would you do if your room did not have windows?

Very recently, a client of mine planned her holiday to Singapore. Before she left, she visited me seeking help to improve her digestion so that she can eat everything she wanted to and asked me to help her in a way that she’d not have any symptoms after she had satisfied her taste buds. It was a rather unusual request.

Well, I helped her with Marmayoga Chikitsa, a process to help harmonise flow of Prana so that the body develops more resilience and tolerant. However, I cautioned her from abusing her body.

She reached Singapore and there were frantic messages from her saying that she was feeling claustrophobic because the rooms allotted to her didn’t have windows.

What would one do in a room without windows?

Some people find it a huge challenge. It’s almost a feeling of chocking to death.

Marmayoga Chikitsa is a lifesaver. Here’s a practice you can do so that your lungs can absorb more oxygen instantly and help you breathe easy.

Place your right hand with fingers extended on your left chest and your left hand on your right chest. Now, press applying moderate pressure and rotate outward 9 times on both sides at the same time. Now reverse the rotation to onwards 9 times. That’s it.

Doing this practice will help you develop your self confidence. The more self confidence you have, the less your dependence on medication.

Within a few days, your body and mind will heal and you won’t ever feel claustrophobic and you’ll definitely not need medication.

In all your future holidays, you’ll feel free. Breathe easy.

Happy holidaying

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

nadi-pariksha-hand

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.

When fear grips you and your doctor screw it up further

A previous client of mine brought with him his brother-in-law for consultation.

I performed his Nadi Pariksha (The Sacred Science of Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis). I found that he had indigestion.

This means he wasn’t able to pass stools after he woke up. Further, there are several associated symptoms that symptom creates, such as palpitations, lethargy, boredom, fullness of mind, etc,. I explained to him what led him to be the way he is. I explained how he would worry and begin eating. And how he would think to himself; if I didn’t eat, I’ll die of starvation. And so, he ate everyday.

This led to a partial obstruction in his small intestines. Gas in the intestines moved upward into his abdomen and his chest. He developed discomfort, pain and bloating. He had palpitations. He was afraid. So, he approached and searched the most wide database of information, “Google”. He identified with the worst that could possibly happen to him.

Then, retaining all that information in his head, he went to a doctor and narrated his symptoms and the associated medical terms. The doctor wrote a prescription for my client which included a medicine to reduce his blood pressure, another one to maintain his heart and the third to reduce his palpitations.

When my client heard my diagnosis, he was aghast. He thought to himself; how is it possible that I’ve such a simple answer to my symptoms and I’m having to take such complex medications!

He wasn’t convinced but he accepted the fact that he was experiencing all the symptoms I had mentioned just then. After explaining that his symptoms need not be grave at all, he calmed down. The truth was that he did not even have a heart problem.

How often have you come across a situation when you’ll have the liberty to choose between what’s appropriate and what’s convenient?

when I’m teaching others, I tell the doctors who come to learn this sacred science Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis; Always make the better choice when the given options are root cause diagnosis and treatment Vs symptomatic diagnosis.

if you’re a doctor you can register for our upcoming course to Learn Nadi Pariksha

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.

He healed others but this happened to him

Man thinking

A person in his 50’s came to me for a consultation. He saw how his wife recovered in my clinic from body pains and so, he sought a consultation for himself.

I performed his Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis). I found that he had low self worth, insecurities and as a result, he had digestive issues and disturbed sleep.

When I narrated these, he agreed in totality. He told me that he was a healer himself and that he had several subconscious and spiritual tools that he used on several people and they healed most people of their problems.

The problem he faced was that, all of the therapies he used worked on anyone and his clients get wonderful results. But when he applied these tools on himself, it wouldn’t work. He was perplexed and didn’t seem to realise where the problem was.

The process of diagnosis I use is one of the best in the world and beats most of the other diagnostic techniques.

I’ve had experience of picking up functional abnormalities in the heart due to a drug reaction In a patient in the ICU of a Bangalore based hospital. The heart machine itself picked up this abnormality some 48 hours after Nadi Pariksha revealed it.

Looking at the diagnosis, I was able to show him the cause of his insecurity and his inability to believe in the therapies he practices because, they did not produce tangible and measurable results. And he was always using his analytical skills to measure the outcomes. And when that didn’t happen, he lost faith.

The reason the therapies worked on others was because of their faith in my client.

This understanding brought a new wave of clarity on him and my client now is coming to resolve his core issues that prevent him from being the best at what he does.

Every successful person goes through his highs and lows and what’s important is that they too need healing sometimes that can help them bounce back and take charge of their life once again.

He feared the worst when his mother went breathless

I received a call from a man in his early 50’s. He spoke from another city and so he requested me to see his mother who was staying in Bangalore.

She was a little over 80 he said. He also mentioned that she seemed fit and healthy. However, when she walked on an up-gradient, she would go tired and breathless.

He feared a possible heart related issue and had got her checked. All reports were normal. He was clueless.

So, he took an appointment and arranged her transportation so she could come for the consultation.

When she came in, she looked cheerful and didn’t seem her age. She looked ten years or more younger than her age.

I performed her Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis) and realised that her heart was fine. But, bronchi in her lungs were constricted and they weren’t absorbing enough oxygen and that, probably caused her to become tired and breathless.

So, to put my diagnosis to test, I performed Marma Chikitsa on her and she felt relief even while standing. Her condition improved immediately. She has been walking since and without much strain.

Cure can sometimes be a simple and effective practice such as Marma Chikitsa. Cure without medicine became possible for her.

When we give into fear, we think only of the worst. We let go of common sense.

His mother cried when she was told this

A boy of 19 years was brought by his mother for a consultation. He was only 6 years of age when he began complaining of discomfort in his abdomen. Doctors diagnosed his condition as appendicitis and operated on him body and removed his appendix.

It was only when his pain resumed that his parents realised that his appendix wasn’t the issue at all.

Unable to bear his abdominal pain he’d roll on the bed. His parents were seeking help and they came in for a consultation which, for them, was one more try.

After performing his Nadi Pariksha, which happened during my Nadi Pariksha Coaching Programme at Ludhiana, my students who are Ayurveda Doctors and me discussed his case.

His mother cried when she cane to know that he didn’t need another surgery.

Watch the video to know how Nadi Pariksha reveals the root cause of this boy’s health condition.

Embrace happiness before you lose it to illness

Embrace your happiness before you lose it to an illness

I see people everyday. Many of the people who come to consult with me are facing high fasting blood sugar levels, high blood pressure, body pains, lack of sound sleep and several other symptoms that seem to have erupted out of thin air. They have a good job that pays them handsomely, their families are happy and yet, they suffer.

He one thing thats common amongst all these people is that they are in the wanting to do what they love doing. They look so tired from doing their mundane jobs that only finance their lifestyle but doesn’t fire their passion that they fail to understand what’s wrong and where. And how can they come out of this suffering.

One such person came to me for a consultation. He looked okay but he wasn’t cheerful. So, I performed his Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis that can also reveal redundant habits, mental patterns, attitudes and your dysfunctional parts of your personality). The diagnosis revealed that he was agitated, frustrated and he was losing sleep. He also had stiffness in his neck, increasing fasting blood sugar levels and high blood pressure.

When I discussed my diagnosis with him, he wasn’t surprised. He knew why his body was throwing out these symptoms, but he wasn’t prepared to do what he so much wanted to.

He loved teaching but, he knew it would pay him only a fraction of what his current job was paying. So, he very meticulous planned for years so that he could get to living his passion. He had achieved financial independence so that his lifestyle will not fluctuate even if he failed in his assignment. Yet, his thoughts were messing up his mornings and he would sometimes be awake in the night thinking “how am I going to do this?”

Look at yourself. Have you also been hanging in such a situation and for long?

I was recently watching a video my friend made. She made a profound statement.. The how about everything is a trap. It just keeps you hanging in that space.

It’s so true. We just keep thinking how we are going to do without actually getting up and doing what we need to. The how, is such a waste of time.

Isn’t it your fear about how your future will turn out to be that stops you from doing and keeps you in the how? It’s such a powerful habit that stops you from being you.

We are all so outcome focussed because that’s what we are taught in elementary school, in business school, literally everywhere.

Instead of focusing on life by way of measuring outcomes, if you can re-orient your approach towards life to become action centric, then the results will just turn out to be not just fine but, you’ll actually begin enjoying life.

When I assist people to take that most important step, they feel it’s a free fall. They fear. They so much want to hold onto their old habits that kept them stuck. And, when they have no choice but to face their new challenges, an inner strength comes forth which takes over their pessimism and fuels their present with a new energy. They feel liberated from their shackles of unnecessary thinking. They begin to act spontaneously. In their spontaneity, healing happens.

When life happens, the body heals and supports your every step.

It’s such a wonderful feeling. Life is never for-giving. Life is for living.

Isn’t it time you took the next step?
