In traditional Indian tribal herbal medicine, diagnosis is often done by examining the patient’s pulse. This is because the pulse is believed to be a reflection of the overall health and balance of the body. An experienced doctor can detect subtle changes in the pulse that can indicate underlying imbalances or illnesses.
Tribal doctor Laxman Raju Guruji, practice traditional medicine that has been passed down through generations in their respective communities. Their treatments often involve the use of natural remedies, such as herbs, roots, and other plant-based medicines.
To perform a pulse diagnosis, the doctor will typically place their fingers on the patient’s wrist or neck and feel for the pulse. They will then assess the strength, rhythm, and quality of the pulse, as well as its location on the wrist or neck.
Based on their observations, the doctor may be able to identify imbalances in the body’s energy or doshas (the three fundamental energies that govern all biological processes in the body according to Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine). They may then prescribe a combination of herbal remedies, dietary changes, and lifestyle modifications to restore balance and promote healing.
It’s important to note that pulse diagnosis is just one tool in the traditional Indian tribal herbal medicine practitioner’s toolkit. Other diagnostic techniques may include examining the patient’s tongue, eyes, and overall physical appearance, as well as asking detailed questions about their symptoms and medical history.
