* Pillars of Ayurvedic Clinical Assessment: * [[Nadi]] (pulse): The doctor asked the patient is she had depression, and she answered yes. This was indicated by the [[Kapha]] in the heart. Since her pulse showed Pitta primary, feeling a Kapha [[proximal]] pulse on one finger indicates an abnormality and a doshic imbalance in one of the organs. Since it was felt in the index finger when placed deep in the left wrist it indicated Kapha in the heart. [[Vata]] in the heart would indicate anxiety. The pulse of both wrists was felt at the same time to see the comparative strength of each organ. - [[Jiva]] (tongue) - [[Shabda]] (listening to the patient) - [[Sparsha]] (touch, ask the patient about pain anywhere). - [[Drig]] (look at her eyes): The patient has [[Pitta]] eyes, a bit reddish (P), intensity in the eyes (P), also eyes reveal a [[Vata]] mind (looks to the side when trying to remember and while talking). - [[Kruti]] (form): Pitta form and bones structure [[Mesomorph]]. - [[Mutra]] (urination): the first morning urine is the most accurate and reveals the true condition of the body. The patient has clear urine early in the morning. This indicates a [[Vata]] disturbance. The urine in the morning is usually yellow. If it was dark yellow then it indicates [[Pitta]]. If it was turbid or cloudy it indicates [[Kapha]]. * Also the patient is dehydrated due to the lack of water intake, and this manifests as [[Vata]] disturbance. She needs to increase her water intake because she is active. Also deep seated fear can disturb the Kidneys and aggravate Vata. * To treat the Kidneys the patient must drink 8 oz – 16 oz warm water upon awakening 1/2-1 hr before herbs or breakfast to flush out the system and kidneys.\\ \\
