Product description

Vasant Lad is one of the great Ayurvedic teachers and prepares this ancient science in a form that is understandable for today's students. In the second volume of his series of textbooks, he conveys the essential elements of clinical assessment in Ayurveda. The human body speaks a logical language. A good Ayurvedic therapist must train all the tools of perception and discernment to know exactly where the patient is in the disease process in order to choose the most effective treatment. Vasant Lad explains in detail and in a practical way how a well-founded investigation should take place. This includes the five clinical barometers such as research into the causes and previous signs, the phases of the course of the disease, the three categories of examination such as observation and palpation, the eight methods such as pulse, urine and stool diagnosis, the assessment of constitution type, the assessment of the digestive fire Agni and the metabolic waste Ama. In addition, detailed information is given on the disorders of the basic types (doshas), the various tissues such as muscle and fat, the three body essences prana, tejas and ojas and the body channels (including digestion). Forms for a complete patient examination can be found in the appendix. With its illustrations, diagrams, questionnaires and practical examples, this book gives learners a unique introduction to the secrets of Ayurvedic examination. Dr. Vasant Lad is director of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque and is active worldwide in imparting Ayurvedic knowledge.
