AWC 12: Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis

Course Description

The Ayurvedic traditional art and science of pulse reading is one of the most powerful means of diagnosing the many imbalances of the body-mind, the degree to which those imbalances are doing harm, and ultimately, what treatments are most effective at restoring balance. Join Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar as he presents this ancient diagnostic art form in a way that easy to learn and implement. Learn to feel and “hear” the inner intelligence of the body as it speaks through the subtle qualities of the pulse. Pulse diagnostics also allows the Ayurveda counselor to detect imbalances early before they manifest as disease. Reading the pulse offers insights that can be used to assess where the imbalance is located (dhatu, subdosha, agni, ama, ojas, etc) and what changes the client will need to restore balance.
