Ayurvedic Assessment & Pulse Diagnosis

Discover the ancient science of Ayurvedic Assessment methodologies including Pulse Diagnosis to detect an individual’s mind-body constitution and state of imbalance. Classical Ayurvedic texts clearly explain how to identify the subtle disease conditions which a physical examination or other assessment techniques are unable to recognize.
