Thousands of years ago, Ayurveda described multiple levels of the radial pulse that could be used to interpret the status of the organs and systems of the body as well as the mental and physical constitution of the individual. This ancient art provides a method by which imbalances and potential disease can be detected in their early stages, giving one the opportunity to correct them before they affect the quality of life.
Through Pulse reading prakruti, vikruti, doshic disorders, other subtle observations and even prognosis of disease can be assessed. Pulse is a subtle manifestation of universal consciousness pulsating through a person's constitution. The pulsation of the blood through the body carries nutrients to the cellular level. There is a continuous flow of communication between cells and this flow of communication is intelligence. Pulse can revel cellular intelligence through a person's constitution.
