Revolutionizing Nutrition with Technology with Nadi Tarangini!!


In today’s fast-paced world, harnessing the power of technology to optimize our health and well-being has become a priority for many. The fusion of ancient wisdom with modern innovations has given rise to groundbreaking approaches, and one such innovation is the Nadi Tarangini: A Pulse Diagnosis system. This ancient Indian practice, now empowered by technology, is shedding new light on the concept of Wellness helping to empower the new age Health programs through personalized Ayurveda and Nutrition insights.

Nadi Tarangini: A Journey through Ancient Wisdom:

While Taking Nadi through Nadi Tarangini

Nadi Pariksha, rooted in Ayurveda, is a traditional method of pulse diagnosis that has been practiced for thousands of years. It involves assessing the subtle pulses in the wrist to gain insights into one’s physical and mental health. Practitioners skilled in this art can detect imbalances and health issues, offering holistic solutions for well-being.

The Marriage of Tradition and Technology:

Technology has found its way into this age-old practice in recent years, making it more accessible and precise. Pulse diagnosis systems equipped with sensors and advanced algorithms can now accurately capture and analyze pulse data. This innovation has opened up exciting possibilities in the realm of both Ayurveda and nutrition. Considering the seasonal change, geographical location, and changes in surroundings we can now have an extremely diverse and unique way of providing Holistic & comprehensive insights.

Unlocking Nutritional Insights:

The Nadi Tarangini Pulse Diagnosis system, powered by technology, offers several key benefits in the field of nutrition:

  • Personalized Nutrition Plans: By analyzing an individual’s pulse data, this system can determine their unique constitution (Prakruti) and any existing imbalances (Vikruti). With this information, personalized nutrition plans can be created to address specific dietary needs and imbalances.
Diet Recommendations
Diet Plan
  • Real-Time Monitoring: Technology enables continuous monitoring of an individual’s pulse, allowing for adjustments to their nutrition plan as their health evolves. This real-time feedback loop ensures that nutritional recommendations remain relevant and practical.
Nadi Graphs
  • Dietary Modifications: The system can recommend dietary modifications and food choices that align with an individual’s body constitution and inner health imbalances. For example, it may suggest specific foods, spices, or herbs to enhance digestion or address deficiencies. It also can provide region-specific diet plans, and personalized dos and don’ts for what to eat and what not to eat as per season, geography & body imbalances.
Dietary Modifications
  • Stress Management: The Nadi Tarangini technology can detect stress levels by monitoring pulse patterns. Stress-reduction techniques, including dietary suggestions, can be incorporated into the person-specific, region-specific, likes and dislikes-based Nutrition Plan to promote overall well-being.
  • Preventive Health: By identifying the inner health imbalances before they manifest as symptoms, the system supports the preventive health aspect. Nutritional adjustments can help individuals maintain balance and prevent the onset of chronic health conditions from progressing.

A Holistic Approach to Wellness:

The integration of Nadi Tarangini Pulse Diagnosis with technology represents a holistic approach to the “New-age Wellness Concept”. It recognizes that nutrition is not just about the food we eat but also about how well our bodies can digest, absorb, assimilate, and utilize nutrients, based on your nadi pariksha insights, Prakruti (body type), and Vikruti (current imbalance). By considering an individual’s unique constitution and health status, this approach goes beyond one-size-fits-all Nutrition do’s & don’ts plans.


In the pursuit of optimal health, technology has become an invaluable ally. The fusion of ancient wisdom and modern innovation, exemplified by the Nadi Tarangini Ecosystem, holds immense promise for a personalized nutrition care program in the coming years. By harnessing the power of technology, we can embark on a journey towards holistic well-being, where nutrition is not merely a matter of sustenance but a path to vibrant health and vitality. Embracing this synergy of technology and tradition can truly revolutionize the way we nourish our bodies and nurture our health.

Digital Nadi-Pariksha and its Tracking

Science of Nadi Pariksha

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.

  1. Nadi Gati (Manda, Vegavati)
  2. Nadi Guna
  3. Dosha avastha (predominant dosha)
  4. Updosha avastha (Sub-Dosha vitiation)
  5. Prakruti (Vikruti assessment)
  6. Agni (metabolic health-related complaints associated with a dominant Dosha)
  7. Bala (immunity/strength of person)
  8. Dhatu-Gata avastha (underlying Doshik predominance and its effects on various systems or probable pathophysiology)
  9. Hetu dnyana (predictive causative factors, very similar in properties with prominent Guna and Dosha reflected by Nadi)
  10. Manas Bhav- Bhay, Chinta, Kaam, Krodh, and so on.
Digital Nadi Pariksha

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.

An evidence-based Tech-Digital Nadi Pariksha

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

  1. Standardization of Nadi analysis
  2. Evidence based practice
  3. Quick analysis
  4. Visualization of Nadi graphs
  5. Printed Nadi pariksha report card
  6. Comparison of different Nadi pariksha visits.
Ayurveda and data science

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.

Nadi Pariksha

The analysis using Nadi-Tarangini Tech

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.

Monitoring and Tracking of Nadi graphs and their properties:

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.

Ganesh Archana – “Patri Puja”

Significance of 21 Patri-leaves used in Ganesh Archana – An Ayurveda Perspective.

देवाची करणी नारळात पाणी… असे का आहे नारळाचे महत्व

श्रावण महिना हा सणांचा महिना म्हणून ओळखला जातो. नागपंचमी, श्रावणी शुक्रवार, मंगळागौर, दहीहंडी असे विविध रंगी आणि विविध परंपरांनी युक्त सण श्रावणात साजरे केले जातात. या सणांच्या दिवशीकेल्या जाणाऱ्या वैशिष्ट्यपूर्ण पदार्थांचा, पूजेचा अविभाज्य भाग म्हणून नारळाचा वापर केला जातो. नारळी पौर्णिमेदिवशीही वरुणदेवतेप्रीत्यर्थ समुद्राची पूजा करून त्याला नारळ अर्पण करतात आणि नारळापासून बनवलेल्या गोड पदार्थांचे सेवन करतात.

आयुर्वेदामध्ये नारळाच्या झाडाला कल्पवृक्ष मानले आहे कारण या झाडाच्या सर्वांगाचा उपयोग विविध प्रकारे केला जातो. श्रीफळ आणि कल्पवृक्ष ही नारळाची प्रमुख दोन नावे आहेत. नारळ, या सर्वाधिक टिकणाऱ्या फळाचे अनेक उपयोग आयुर्वेदात सांगितलेले आहेत. चरक संहितेमध्ये फलवर्गामध्ये नारळाचे उपयोग सांगितलेले आहेत. त्याचबरोबर अपक्व नारळ (शहाळ), मलई, ओले खोबरे, सुके खोबरे, नारळाचे पाणी, खोबरेल तेल याचेही गुणधर्म आयुर्वेदात सांगितलेले आहेत. चला तर मग, शुभकार्यासाठी वापरला जाणारा नारळ ते सणावारातील पदार्थांचा अविभाज्य घटक असलेला नारळ याचे आयुर्वेदानुसार गुणधर्म बघू.

भारतामधील प्रत्येक राज्यामध्ये विविध पदार्थांसाठी नारळाचा -खोबऱ्याचा वापर केला जातो. नारळाच्या उपलब्धीप्रमाणे काही प्रांतात ओले तर काही प्रांतात सुके खोबरे वापरले जाते. मोदकासारखे गोड पदार्थ असो किंवा मिसळीसारखे झणझणीत तिखट पदार्थ, यात खोबऱ्याचा वापर अविभाज्य ठरतो. सणाच्या दिवशी महाराष्ट्रात केले जाणारे उकडीचे मोदक, नारळी पौर्णिमेचा नारळी भात, साउथ इंडियन कोकोनट राईस, नारळाची बर्फी या मिश्रणात नारळाचा प्रामुख्याने वापर होतोच पण याशिवाय नारळाची चटणी, खोबऱ्याचं वाटण याशिवाय अनेक तिखट रेसिपीही खोबऱ्याशिवाय अपूर्णच राहतात. पोहे, उपीट,बटाट्याची भाजी आणि अनेक पदार्थांवर खोबरे ड्रेसिंगसाठी वापरले जाते. खोबऱ्याच्या या बहुआयामी वापराचा विचार केल्यास नक्कीच त्याचे पोटाशी आणि आरोग्याशी जोडलेले नाते लक्षात येते. आयुर्वेदाच्या दृष्टिकोनातून याचे गुणधर्म जाणून घेतल्यास नारळ या आहारीय द्रव्याचा वापर आरोग्याचे संतुलन उत्तम राखण्यासाठी करता येईल.

नारळ हे मधुर रसाचे, मधुर विपाकाचे आणि शीत वीर्याचे फळ आहे. ते स्निग्ध गुणाचे असले तरीही पचण्यास हलके आहे. नारळाचे पाणी हे उत्तम इलेक्ट्रोलाईट आहे. त्यामुळे आबाल वृद्धांसाठी खोबरे, नारळाचे पाणी हे बल्य,पोषक सांगितलेले आहे.

श्रावण महिना हा सणांचा राजा म्हणून ओळखला जातो पण वर्षा ऋतूत येणाऱ्या या महिन्यात अग्नि कमकुवत व पचनशक्ती मंदावलेली असते.आयुर्वेदानुसार हा वाताच्या प्रकोपाचा काळ आणि पित्ताच्या संचयाचा काळ असतो. अशावेळी पुरणपोळी, दुधाच्या गोड व पचायला जड पदार्थांपेक्षा खोबऱ्यापासून बनवलेले गोड पदार्थ आरोग्यासाठी उत्तम ठरताना दिसतात. नारळापासून बनलेले हे गोड पदार्थ शरीरातील वात कमी करतातच पण पित्ताचा संचय ही होऊ देत नाहीत. पचायला हलके असल्यामुळे अग्नि संतुलित ठेवतात. त्यामुळे अशा गोड पदार्थांचा पोटाला त्रास होत नाही. 

तिखट, मसालेदार पदार्थात वापरले जाणारे खोबरे हे त्यातील उष्ण, तीक्ष्ण गुणांना कमी करून शरीरातील पित्त वाढू देत नाही. पोहे,बटाट्याच्या भाजीत वरून घातलेले खोबरेही जड पदार्थांचे पचनसुलभ करते. ओल्या खोबऱ्याच्या तुलनेत सुक्या खोबऱ्यातील स्निग्धता कमी असते पण वातपित्ताचे नियमन याद्वारे सांभाळले जातेच.

वर्षा ऋतूतील या सणांच्या काळात पोटांच्या अनेक तक्रारी अचानक उद्भवलेल्या दिसतात. अपचन,भूक मंदावणे, पोटात आग पडणे,अम्लपित्त, डोकेदुखी,चक्कर येणे याशिवाय कॉलरा, गॅस्ट्रोसारखे साथीचे आजारही या काळात बळवलेले असतात. नारळ पाणी किंवा जेवणातील खोबऱ्याच्या नियमित वापरामुळे वरील अनेक तक्रारींना दूर ठेवता येते. अनेक विटामिन्स आणि मिनरल्स यांनी परिपूर्ण असणारे खोबरे व त्याचे पदार्थ लहान मुलांमध्ये वजन वाढीसाठीही उपयुक्त ठरताना दिसतात. गर्भिणींसाठी,वृद्धांसाठी, दीर्घकालीन आजारानंतर नारळापासून बनलेले पदार्थ हे टॉनिक सारखे काम करताना दिसतात. यात अळीव खोबऱ्याचे लाडू, नारळाची वडी, खोबऱ्याची चिक्की, कोहळा नारळवडी यांचा समावेश होतो.

सणवार, ओटी, शुभ कार्यक्रम अशा प्रत्येक ठिकाणी नारळाचा वापर होताना दिसतो कारण नारळ हे फळ शुभसूचक आणि सर्जनशक्‍तीचेही प्रतीक मानले जाते. सणानुसार हिंदू संस्कृतीत सांगितलेल्या सांगितलेल्या परंपरा व प्रथा या वेगळ्या, वैशिष्ट्यपूर्ण आणि आरोग्यदायी ठरणाऱ्या आहेत. निसर्ग देवतेचे पूजन आणि त्याप्रती कृतज्ञता व उत्तम आरोग्याचेजतन या पैलूंचा विचार सण साजरा करताना केला गेला पाहिजे.

सणाच्या निमित्ताने सांगितलेली एखादी पाककृती व त्यातील प्रमुख घटक हा त्या सणापुरता मर्यादित नसून त्या काळातील ऋतुचर्येचा भाग म्हणून स्वीकारला पाहिजे. अशा पद्धतीने आहारामध्ये बदल केल्यास ऋतूबदलामुळे शरीरावर होणाऱ्या दुष्परिणामांपासून सहजरित्या बचाव केला जाऊ शकतो. नारळी पौर्णिमेच्या निमित्ताने प्रामुख्याने नारळापासून केले जाणारे मिष्टान्नसेवन जसे करंज्या, नारळी भात यामुळे शरीरांतर्गत दोषाचे नियमन आणि संतुलन राखले जाते. यामागचा आरोग्यदायी उद्देश समजून घेतला व आहारात असा बदल केला तर नक्कीच आपले आरोग्य उत्तम राहू शकते.तुम्ही सुद्धा या बहुआयामी, बहुगुणी नारळाचा वापर जरूर तुमच्यास्वयंपाकात करा.

नारळी पौर्णिमेच्या हार्दिक शुभेच्छा

Stay fit at home with Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is an ancient science of life. In the Ayurvedic science of life, health (Aarogya) is considered the most vital aspect for the accomplishment of Purusharth Chatushya (Four aims and objectives of life).

In the present era of wealth and technology people are living their life only to earn money in pursuit of prosperity to live a responsible family life but they have left their physical activity, dietary schedule, sleep pattern, etc. which leads them to suffer from lifestyle diseases. Ayurveda being a holistic health science emphasizes the importance of a healthy lifestyle for the prevention of lifestyle diseases. In earlier days, life was not so hectic. It was quite simple and free of too many challenges with a healthy environment in comparison to these days. People were healthy as they had to perform all the daily routine activities on their own. But now, in the era of wealth and technology, life has become comfortable, but it has also become hectic and unhealthy because of competition. Nowadays, because of unhealthy lifestyles, people become less active at both physical and mental levels which leads to loss of health.

It is better to prevent disease rather than try to cure disease after they occur. So, in order to maintain good health and disease-free life, a vast description of the daily regimen (Dincharya) is mentioned in Ayurveda. Various aspects of dincharya and their applications in the present scenario are described below:

1. Bramhamuhurta Jagrana (Time of getting up in Brahmamuhurta) –

In Ayurveda, it is advisable to wake up during brahmamuhurta (early in the morning i.e., 90 min before sunrise). Brahma means knowledge; this time is also favorable for reading as well as satva guna is also dominant in the human body at this time. Nascent oxygen in the atmosphere at that time easily and readily mixes up with hemoglobin to form oxyhemoglobin which nourishes the remote tissue rapidly. Exposure to bright light in the early morning causes the release of serotonin (neurotransmitter) which contributes to the feeling of well-being and happiness and keeps the person happy and alert. Because of fresh air, lower air pollution, and lower noise pollution, it is advised one should practice Yoga, Pranayama, and Meditation in brahmamuhrta.


2. Ushapan (Intake of water early in the morning) –

Drink a glass of lukewarm water after waking up. A person who drinks water at the time of sunrise daily can live for a period of hundred years, without any disease and fear of old age. He also can prevent following diseases like Arsha (Haemorrhoids), Sotha (oedema), Grahani (sprue), Jwara (fever), old age, skin disorders, and obesity-related diseases. This water should be kept overnight in a copper vessel. Copper has many benefits for good health.

3. Shauchkarma –

After ushapan daily evacuate the body waste (stool and urine) in toilets. Never suppress nor forcefully void the natural urges. Vegvidharna (suppression) can lead to many diseases.

4. Dantdhavan (Cleaning of teeth) –

It is directed to clean the teeth in the morning and after taking meals. It stimulates taste perception and increases salivation. According to Ayurveda teeth should be cleaned by chewing twigs of certain medicinal plants like neem, khadir, etc. which makes gums stronger and is also a good exercise for facial muscles.

5. Jivha nirlekhan (tongue cleaning) –

The tongue should be cleaned daily. This practice of oral health promotes overall physical and mental health by removing the coating and stimulating the tongue, this helps to balance the heavy and dull qualities of Kapha dosha.

6. Anjana (application of collyrium in eyes) –

In today’s time, excessive work on computers results in dry eye or computer vision syndrome. So daily application of Anjana removes Kapha dosha from the eyes and improves eye health. It removes dirt from the eye and subsides the burning sensation, itching, and pain of the eyes.

7. Nasya (oily nasal drops) –

Put two drops of sesame oil/mustard oil/ghee or Anu taila (Ayurvedic preparation) in both nostrils. It strengthens the sense organs, prevents premature greying of hair, and baldness, and ensures good sleep.

8. Gandusha (Mouth wash) –

Filling the mouth with Gandusha Dravya and retaining it for some time is called Gandush. It is rejuvenation and preventive therapy which enhances the senses, brings about a feeling of freshness, and invigorates the mind. This technique can also benefit from bad breath, dry face, dull senses, anorexia, loss of taste, impaired vision, etc.

9. Abhyanga (oil massage) –

Abhyanga, mentioned in dinacharya, is an ancient ayurvedic approach adopted for healing, relaxation, and treating various types of vataj disease. It should be performed daily. Especially oil should be applied to the head, ears, and feet. Abhyanga delays aging. It works on Manas Bhav and hence reduces stress and helps in attaining good and sound sleep.

10. Vyayam (Exercising Yoga) –

The aim of Vyayam is to promote the harmonious development of the whole body. Simple exercises and yoga can be practiced daily at home. Daily vyayam helps in physical development, luster, compactness of body parts, stimulation of digestive power, firmness, lightness, tolerance to fatigue, cold, and heat, and provides immunity. Ardhashakti (half of the strength) vyayam is indicated in sheeta and Vasant kala only, as vyayam practiced beyond the capability of the body can be harmful. Kapha prakruti person has a strong constitution and immunity so they can get involved in a faster-paced regimen that will help them to get the blood pumping and their body moving, like aerobics, Zumba, belly dancing, and water exercises.

The best exercises for pitta types are medium in intensity and will avoid overheating the body and mind. Avoid exercising especially at mid-day when the sun and the pitta are at their strongest point.

Vata dosha is made up of air and space. Vata types tend to be smaller, more fragile, and lower weight by nature. So vata types must remember to keep pace slowly and the intensity low, gentle, and non-weight bearing exercises.

11. Snana (Bath) –

Daily bathing improves agni (digestive power), longevity, and enhances sexual desire, provides health, energy, and strength. It removes kandu (itching), mala, ashram (fatigue), sweda (sweat), lethargy, Trishna (thirst),daha (burning sensation), and ill feeling. Ayurveda suggests that having a very hot water bath is bad for eyes and hair. Always use cold or lukewarm water. Bathing in very cold water in the winter season vitiates Kapha and Vata, likewise bathing in very hot water in the hot season vitiates Pitta and Rakta. Also, it is said in Ayurveda that taking a bath right after eating food is harmful because it leads to indigestion, nausea, and abdominal discomfort. These daily regimen procedures have beneficial effects on the proper functioning of the body thereby maintaining a state of equilibrium of three doshas (vata, pitta, kapha), seven dhatu, three mala, and power of digestion along with pleasant mind, soul, and sense organs, which in turn helps to attain positive health.
