How the diagnosis is done in Ayurveda?

Diagnosis is regarded as one of the most crucial facets of Ayurvedic treatment. To put it simply, diagnosis is a way of finding out the root cause of an illness. Ayurveda believes in not just treating the physical facet of the illness but eliminating the disease entirely. In order to provide complete relief, the root cause of the disorder must be eradicated. The diagnostic techniques in Ayurveda are divided into two categories. The first diagnostic technique intends to establish the condition and nature of pathology which suggests the checkup of the patient while making diverse examinations to diagnose the disease entity. Here, the key method of physical examination is inspection, palpation, percussion, and interrogation. The second diagnostic technique targets at deciding the method of treatment to be applied by evaluating the strength and physical status of the individual. To execute this specific examination, Prakriti (Body Consumption), Saar (Tissue Quality), Samhnan (Physique), Satva (Mental Strength), Aaharshakti (Diet Intake Capacity), Satamya (Specifically Adaptability), Vyayaam Shakti (Exercise Capacity), and Vaya (Age) is carried out. As a result of this examination, the Pravar Bal (Excellent Strength), Madhyam Bal (Moderate Strength), and Heen Bal (Low Strength) of an individual are determined.
