The Nadi, an index of heart rate and mirror of our body and mind is of great importance. According to ancient Ayurveda science, various Nadi patterns are indicators of the mind and body and their internal health components.
Nadi Pariksha i.e. pulse examination comes under 8-fold assessment tools described by Ayurveda.
Perception of Nadi and health diagnosis:
According to Ayurveda, Nadi Pariksha is essential for the assessment of many health parameters and underlying pathophysiology parameters.
- Nadi Gati (Manda, Vegavati)
- Nadi Guna
- Dosha avastha (predominant dosha)
- Updosha avastha (Sub-Dosha vitiation)
- Prakruti (Vikruti assessment)
- Agni (metabolic health-related complaints associated with a dominant Dosha)
- Bala (immunity/strength of person)
- Dhatu-Gata avastha (underlying Doshik predominance and its effects on various systems or probable pathophysiology)
- Hetu dnyana (predictive causative factors, very similar in properties with prominent Guna and Dosha reflected by Nadi)
- Manas Bhav- Bhay, Chinta, Kaam, Krodh, and so on.
Nadi Pariksha is one of the traditional methods of performing health assessment in a non-invasive way. It is an extraordinary assessment tool and a boon in the field of the healthcare sector.
Sharangdhar Samhita, Bhavprakash, Yog Ratnakar, Ravan-Krut Nadi, and Nadi Tarangini are some old textbooks of Ayurveda that describe every single aspect of Nadi Pariksha. This assessment system is key for understanding Doshik imbalances, underlying pathophysiology, and even causative factors.
Based on Nadi analysis, Vaidya/ Ayurveda Physician emphasizes lifestyle modifications in terms of diet, water intake, exercise, and yoga in view of Prakruti, Vikruti, Ayurveda Aahar shastra, Aahar vidhi vishesh aayatane, Aahar nirman vidhi, Anna sanskar and Modern Science of Nutrition as Ayurveda states that every individual is different by their Prakruti, hence the Doshik configurations are also different inside their body.
Evidence-based practice is the need of time for the Ayurveda and wellness sector as digital Nadi Pariksha can focus on personalized lifestyle corrections.
Digitalisation of Nadi Pariksha techniques will help wellness sector to
- Standardization of Nadi analysis
- Evidence based practice
- Quick analysis
- Visualization of Nadi graphs
- Printed Nadi pariksha report card
- Comparison of different Nadi pariksha visits.
Nadi Pariksha graphs and their analysis in the terminology of Ayurveda are now possible with the help of Nadi Tarangini.
Ancient science of Nadi pariksha which is studied, practiced and encouraged by Ayurveda vaidyas and Nadi pariksha experts gave their inputs and knowledge to transform nadi graphs calculated in the form of energy, volume, speed, rhythm, and stiffness into Ayurveda parameters of Agni, Bala, Guna, etc. It is useful for Ayurveda practitioners to diagnose and analyze the Nadi patterns of the patients to understand their inner health. In this fast-paced world where everything has to be ultra-efficient, Nadi Tarangini is an unparalleled technological advancement, providing systematic healthcare management. Nadi Tarangini auscultates subtle changes in overall health parameters based on Vata, Pitta, and Kapha (Tridosha) by analyzing Nadi.
As per classical texts, qualities or properties of Nadi / pulse such as pulse movement (Gati), speed of the pulse (Vega), stability of the pulse (Sthiratva), and hardness of the artery (Kathinya) play a major role in Nadi Pariksha. The classical texts emphasize the significance of Gati, a unique quality of the Nadi as part of Nadi Pariksha. As per texts, Gati plays an essential role in disease diagnosis. Sarpa, Manduk, and Hansagati for Vata, Pitta, and Kapha respectively are assessed through digital Nadi Pariksha too.
All these aspects of Nadi Pariksha are being considered, monitored, and analyzed digitally using Sensor-based technology by Atreya Innovations. A report mentioning all minute parameters is generated which is a unique individual-specific health assessment card. The report can be assessed and co-related with associated complaints and it could be used for follow-up too. It is a simple, non-invasive technology that enables us to reach the root cause of health issues in a personalized manner and not just address the symptoms. This is a perfect blend of ancient Ayurveda wisdom and technology that focuses on good QoL- Quality of life for everyone’s well-being.
