The Importance of Nadi Pariksha - Ayurveda...

Often we think, why should we go for Ayurveda and Nadi Pariksha when we can easily get rid of any discomfort of disease by Allopathy?

Definition of the disease is, "any deviation from or interruption of the normal structure or function of any body part, organ, or system that is manifested by a characteristic set of symptoms and signs and whose etiology, pathology, and prognosis may be known or unknown."

We, as a life system, are made up of five elements, i.e. Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. The food that we eat, once it is digested, it gets mixed up in the body as various nutrients which is nothing but these five elements. The entire Universe is made up of these basic elements. 

When the condition of disease or interruption begins in our system, it first enters into the space element, which is our aura. Aura is all surrounding the body, the energy field body. Then, it enters into the Air element, which is visible as disturbed breathing patterns. If we are sharp observers we won't miss this phenomenon related to breath. The third stage of interruption is into Fire element, which is associated with our mind. The mind is made up of thoughts and emotions mainly. So, we feel so much of mood swings (emotional turbulence) as well as continuous thoughts. Then it enters into the water element, where it affects our blood, urine and all those systems which is associated with water in the body. The last stage is the Earth element, which is our visibly gross body. 

Allopathy can only detect any disease once it has come to the level of water element or earth element. Whereas, Ayurveda can detect it from any of these five levels. Not only can it detect which level the interruption has entered, but also it can say up to what extent it has disturbed the system there. Therefore, one must go through Nadi Pariksha once a month. Once you know what is wrong with your over all life system then you can take measures in due time. Prevention is better than cure. Allopathy can only cure a disease once it has happened, whereas Ayurveda can prevent it from happening on your gross body.
