Pulse Reading for Clinical Assessment and Herbal Protocol
Dr. Vasant Lad BAM&S, MAScJune 17th, 2011
Below is full lecture outline (Friday lectures are just an Introduction)
The pulse is a doorway the physician passes through to reach the inner state of a person's mental and physical health and well-being. Prana (life force) flows through the nadis from the deepest organs and inner pathways to the skin, revealing under each of the three fingers the doors leading into this inner world so that one can be in tune with the individual's prana. Reading the pulse is both an art and a science.
Vasant Lad, Ayurvedic Physician, gives his unique skill of reading the pulse. Students will apply this simple clinical barometer to their own practice. This information will be used to create herbal formulas to address the imbalances in the doshas, organs, tissues, appropriate to the stage of disease and an individual's state of mind.
This seminar is clinically oriented and directed toward practitioners and students of health disciplines.
