DIAGNOSIS & TREATMENT

by
Eliot Tokar


DIAGNOSIS

Interview

To put theory into practice we have specific diagnostic tools. As taught to me by my teacher Dr. Trogawa Rinpoche, we should first speak to the patient and find out their medical history as well as pertinent aspects of their personal history.

Urine

We then look at a urine sample. In the urinalysis we observe such things as the color of the specimen and its odor and then after vigorous stirring the size, color, amount, and persistence of bubbles, and any deposits. From this we can begin to confirm the nature of the illness, the presence of infection and the localization of the illness among other things

Pulse

Next we feel the twelve pulses. There are six distinct pulses at the radial artery of each wrist. We feel for such things as the width, depth, strength, speed and quality of the pulse. Each of those factors when understood properly allow us to clearly define the illness, its location, hidden complications and its etiology.

 

Additional Diagnostic Techniques

To further confirm the diagnosis we can look at the color, shape and coatings of the tongue, the sclera of the eye and we may look for sensitivity at certain pressure points on the body.
