The Philosophical and Fundamental Principles of Ayurveda
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 constitutions of the individual. As the first text on pulse diagnosis for the Western student, this book provides a method by which anyone can learn to read his own pulse. Imbalances and potential disease states can be detected in their early stages, giving one the opportunity to correct them before they affect the quality of life. With practice and guidance, one can acquire the proficiency to use this knowledge to heal self and others.
This new edition contains revisions and expanded descriptions that developed in response to the questions and feedback of the many students and teachers who use this book in Ayurveda schools and clinics around the world.
2nd Edition, 172 pp. $20.00
“Secrets of the Pulse offers practical teachings on pulse analysis that Vasant Lad, MASc, received from his guru. It describes a unique assessment method that enhances a practitioner’s sensitivity and awareness and helps to cultivate the ability to directly perceive fundamental issues affecting the body.”
