pulse diagnosis


Pulse reading is traditionally taken at the right wrist of a man, and the left of a woman. The index finger reads Vata, the middle, Pitta, and the ring, Kapha. Each pulse reader has developed his or her own way of reading pulse. Some divide the five sub-divisions of the doshas into each finger, others read the warmth, thickness, and speed of the pulse, and others see the length of the body in the pulse. Vata’s pulse is thin and snake-like, Pitta’s is like a frog, medium, and warm, and Kapha’s pulse is slow like a swan, thick, and broad. The tongues tip represents the throat, the root represents the perineum, and the body maps out the human body. Examination of faecal matter consists of looking for undigested food, viewing the consistency, colour, and sensing the odour. The colour, temperature, and froth indicate which dosha predominates in urine.
