Diagnosis according to Ayurveda - Dr Kirti Paik

CATEGORY: Dr. Kirti's



Hello everybody today I am going to talk to you about diagnosis according to Ayurveda.
Now this is not a boring clinical lecture in fact today I am going to share a secret of Ayurveda with you.

One of the important features of Ayurveda is detecting the disease even before it transforms into a clinical pathology. An Ayurveda Doctor gives uttermost importance to the clinical symptoms because they create imbalances in the patient's daily life and eventually causing an ailment. Symptom is experienced and reported by the patient, while a sign is discovered by the physician during examination of the patient.

In Ayurveda, symptoms that are significant can be further examined with urine diagnosis, pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis with a more detailed history and addressed with lifestyle rebalancing techniques before pathology manifests.

Modern medicine recognizes two stages in disease formation. The first is the stage of detection, where clearly distinguishable symptoms have begun to manifest. Complication is the second stage, where disease is so advanced that it affects other areas of the body and is basically irreversible.

Ayurveda, however, elaborates a six-stage process of disease manifestation, called shat kriya kal. The 1st stage is of pathogenesis accumulation (sanchaya), provocation (prakopa) spread or migration (prasara), deposition or augmentation (sthana samshaya), manifestation (vyakti) and the differentiation (bheda). Ayurveda alerts you of the different stages before a illness developed.

In the flowing videos I will elaborate more on each of the stage, which will help you to find out about your health.

On our next video I will elaborate more on the disease manifestation covering the first two stages sanchaya and prakopa.
