Pulse Diagnosis

What is pulse diagnosis?

Ayurveda is based on two fundamental theories, the Pancha Mahabhuttas and Tridosha theories. Ayurvedic philosophy believes that everything in the universe is made up of five elements. When the Pancha Mahabhuttas or five elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth) is balanced, the body is healthy and when they are imbalanced, there is disease. These elements manifest into life forces and make each of us unique, physically and mentally. The elements combine into three Doshas (life forces) – Vata, Pitta and Kapha . The combination of the three Doshas influence our mental, emotional and physical tendencies.

Ayurveda’s primary focus is the avoidance of illness by proactively leading a healthy way of life. It seeks to balance and restore health through wholesome food, exercise, meditation, relaxation and cleansing.


Nadi Pariksha or pulse diagnosis is an ancient technique in ayurvedic practice where the individual’s pulse is felt by an expert to acknowledge the status of doshas . The physical and psychological imbalances can be inferred with pulse diagnosis. Once the state of imbalance is identified, suggestions about balancing the diet and lifestyle along with detox programs and stress management methods can be implemented to re-establish the harmony of the self.

When to do ?

You can do a pulse diagnosis anytime in spite of feeling healthy or unhealthy as the state of dosha always changes in an individual. When you have decided to get a pulse diagnosis done, ensure the following:


1) An empty stomach/fasting for 3 hours before the appointment.

2) Restrict drinking any fluids before one hour of appointment.
