Because Ayurveda emphasizes balance in all areas of your life, examination can consist of examination of the body, extensive personal and medical history, including questions about daily diet, profession, working conditions, exercise routines, relationships, sleep, dreams, thoughts and mental health.This thorough intake process helps the practitioner identify key symptoms and potential causes of imbalance and determine suitable treatment options.
Ayurvedic examinations generally consist of three parts:
Observation (Darshan): Evaluation of physical health by observation of patient, movements, body contour, body, hair, skin, joints, eyes, nose, tongue, lips, nails, , colour, facial lines and ridges, shape of the nose etc.
Touch (Sparsha): This includes palpation of body parts, listening for sounds made by the internal organs (shrvanaa), and percussion or tapping (akotana). There is special focus on the patient's pulse, tongue, nails, and speech.
Questions (Prashna): This is inquiring and finding signs and symptoms as well as the duration of discomfort and disease progression. The practitioner also inquires about mental and psychological conditions.
An Ayurvedic diagnosis, and subsequent treatments, is made not only on the disease level (called roga), but also on the patient level (called rogi). The exhaustive examination helps not only diagnose the disorder, but individualize or tailor treatments for each patient. To make a diagnosis, the Ayurvedic practitioner uses a method called rogi-roga pareeksha, which combines disease analysis with deep examination of each individual considering the physical, psychological, mental, spiritual, financial, environmental, social, emotional and intellectual dimension of health. The Ayurvedic practitioner considers the whole human being, believing that people have within them the required energy to bring the body back to a healthy, or balanced, state. According to Ayurveda, diseases are due to a doshic imbalance. Determining the patient's dosha, and then identifying the root cause of a disease, requires precise training. BOOK HERE
