A nadi vaidya is a person who just by mere touch of the nadi of the patient by his fingers is able to diagnose and analyse the condition of health and disease in the body and mind of the patient. Nadi pariksha is thus not a magical art form instead it’s a science and a nadi vaidya is a scientist who is expert of this science.
Our diet, lifestyle and thoughts affect even the minute to minutest parts of our body. This effect then circulates along with blood in our vessels. At certain specific spots in our body this circulating information in the form of special waves can be read. In present times, through nadi besides knowing the status of vata pitta kapha and other Ayurvedic diagnosis several other modern allopathic diagnosis can be drawn like increase in cholesterol, increased serum uric acid, etc.
