With the advent of Nadi Pariksha Machines, is learning Nadi Pariksha still relevant?

From the days of my research in Ayurveda and Yoga shastras from 2002, Several Sanskrit Pundits and Intellectuals have been in many discussion with me and suggesting to me that I must explore the possibilities of creating a machine that can Diagnose patients with Nadi Pariksha.

I was exploring the depths of our ability to diagnose and check patients with Nadi Pariksha. My journey inward continues even today.

Two years ago, an innovator of a Nadi Pariksha machine approached me asking whether I can share how I do Nadi Pariksha and how I record my data. He was then in the process of creating his machine which, he said, would replace Nadi Pariksha.

I shared my data, and today, we see this machine making inroads rapidly into the market and into every doctor’s table.

I was also told by a very senior person in the department of AYUSH that I must use this machine along side my traditional diagnostic methods.

I have a few questions very important here;

Have the research scholars studied what happens to the patient when a Vaidya performs traditional Nadi Pariksha? What effects take place in the patient? How is it different from performing a machine diagnosis? What spiritual practices does a Vaidya undertake that boosts a patient’s confidence in the Vaidya? What does the environment of the Vaidya do to the patient?

Without involving in a wholesome study of traditional practices, one must not assume and create shortcuts. A few people can destroy traditional ways of healing only because they believe that there is a smarter way of going about it.

Recently, I was in a meeting with the same innovator and he said; “Don’t be idealistic. I have offers from people who want to invest in the project and I can’t tell you how many zeros are there. I am still counting.”

It was a very shallow statement that he made. Is it all about money? Is that all? And he also said; I am first approaching those Ayurveda doctors who do not know Ayurveda. These are the people who will buy my machines and that is my entry point. I am also increasing their financial position. They can earn a little more with Nadi Pariksha.

The western world is researching the effects of traditional Indian practices on the body-mind-emotion whereas, the Indian research fraternity is moving in the opposite direction.

Madness in innovation mustn’t fool people into believing that they will replace human intellect.

I like to quote an experience I had with a patient several years ago.

A woman called me and asked me whether I would be willing to come over to her house to diagnose her condition. She had a hole in her dura and her CSF was leaking. She had been advised surgery.

I went there to see her. During the process of performing Nadi Pariksha, I was mentally chanting Gayatri Mantra. Something happened to my patient which she noticed, but did not mention to me while I was there.

I suggested her the remedies and came away.

I teach doctors to chant the Gayatri Mantra. This is one of the Mantras that gives us the timeline to measure the health of the pulse.

Four hours later, the woman called me and said that while undergoing Nadi Pariksha, her CSF leak had stopped. It never recurred since. She is still doing fine and without having to undergo any surgical procedures.

Can machine diagnosis do this?

Nadi Pariksha is a divine science of diagnosis and evaluation of our body, mind and emotion. You can learn Nadi Pariksha.

Metaphorically speaking, practicing Ayurveda is like summiting Mount Everest. Science is the base camp. Science needs to grow so it can accommodate Ayurveda and its procedures. It mustn’t pull Ayurveda down and reduce its procedures to a mere mechanical process or some machine diagnosis.

It will be our foolishness to surrender to a machine and forget how our traditional practices inspire us to be an effective instrument of the divine in healing the ailing population.

I hope, by reading this blog post, the Ayurveda Doctors wake up to be Vaidyas of a higher Order and learn Nadi Pariksha, than being mere machine operators who produce some kind of data which neither they nor the patients understand.

She thought her husband wasn’t in love with her and then she discovered this

Attachment

The other day, a lady came to me for a consultation. She told me; I love my husband so much but he simply doesn’t love me or care about me. He is the best dad to our children. But, there is a distance between the two of us.

She had come alone. It was evident there was a gap. His absence showcased it.

I performed her Nadi Pariksha to understand her mental patterns and her subconscious thoughts and feelings. After briefly discussing with her, I suggested some remedial therapies to her.

She came for a followup appointment within two days. This time, her husband was with her. He seemed very gentlemanly. From there conversation, it seemed to me that she was searching for her father figure in him. I discussed with her husband and told her what I felt in her Nadi. We discussed and he got the message. She left soon after the appointment.

When she came for the third appointment, she was all glee. I was eager to know the reason. She told me that when she left after her appointment the previous time, her husband ushered her into their car and told her; let’s go out for lunch, just you and me! Let the kids be at home.

His surprise to her couldn’t contain her joy for an entire week. She was all of a sudden so much in love with him.

That’s when she discovered; that the thought of her husband’s gesture kept coming back to her and she just was more in love. Her love just multiplied. She couldn’t contain her smile.

When you learn Nadi Pariksha, you learn how you can study thoughts, emotions, feelings, subconscious patterns and its effect on the body. The connections between root cause and symptoms are revealed to you.

I have been teaching this ancient science for over 10 years and the rewards have been encouraging. I’ve seen doctors shunning their stethoscopes and using only Nadi Pariksha to diagnose their patients’ ailments and some doctors, for the very first time, have used a combination of marma chikitsa and medicines to remove doshas they have discovered through Nadi Pariksha and have been rewarded with excellent results.

What if I told you that your thinking is influenced?

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.
