Pulse Examination

 

Ayurvedic Medicine

Prakriti / Constitution

Ayurvedic Medicine

Basics

From times immemorial the practitioners of Ayurveda have correctly diagnosed and treated ailments without the help of any tests except that of the pulse. The radial pulse is usually chosen as the site to examine the pulse. It reveals the characteristics of imbalances, the nature of the disease and expected prognosis.

Gati

Moves like a cobra

Moves like a frog

Moves like a swimming swan

1) Fast, Narrow, Feeble, Cool, Irregular
Rate is 80-100 beats per minute The placement of the index finger denotes the pulse of Vata. When this pulse predominates, the index finger feels the throbbing more strongly. And the pulse feels like the movement of a snake, quick and slithery.

2) Jumping, Excite, Prominent, Hot, Moderate, Regular Rate is 70-80 beats per minute. The placement of the middle finger denotes the pulse of Pitta. When this pulse predominates, the middle finger gets a stronger feel; it is active and jumpy like the movement of a frog.

3) Slow, Strong, Steady, Soft, Broad, Regular, Warm


Rate is 60 -70 beats per minute. The placement of the ring finger denotes the pulse of Kapha. When this pulse predominates, the ring finger feels the strongest effect. This pulse is slow and resembles the floating of a swan.
