Diagnostic procedures employed by a Tibetan medicine practitioner is simple, easy and yet exceptionally accurate. The complete diagnosis of a problem is accomplished in less than an hour. Unlike western medical diagnostic procedures, the patient is free from any complications and irritations of having to go for various laboratory examinations. As a general procedure, Tibetan medical practitioner employs three main diagnostic methods. They are: visual assessment, examination by touch and questioning. Visual examination involves observing all the objects of seeing such as physical complexion, tongue and urine sample of the patients. Examination by touch involves using physician’s hands to check for any abnormalities, feeling body temperature and particularly feeling the radial pulse of the patient.

Feeling the radial pulse is one of the most commonly used and in fact, most important and useful method employed by Tibetan medical practitioners to identify a disorder. Tibetan medicine practitioners examine the pulse of a patient to determine the nature of the disorder. It is examined on the radial artery of a patient, which provides clear information relating to the healthy and unhealthy state of a person and the biological functions of an organ and its components. Based on various beating characteristics of a pulse, the physician with single pointed concentration reads the pulse very carefully and then identifies the nature of the disorder. Though it may seem fairly easy, but to become an expert in pulse reading, one needs to go through lot of arduous and complicated training under a competent teacher over a long period of time.

Examination of a urine sample is like looking to the reflection on a mirror. The hot and cold nature of a disorder is clearly visible in the urine provided the sample is collected appropriately. An appropriate time and means of collecting the urine sample must be followed in order to obtain correct diagnosis. Physician looks to the color, vapor, sediment formation, bubbles, the consistency of the urine, its thickness and smell.

The main aspect of questioning involves asking question with regard to the dietary and lifestyle factors. Questions such as what diet and lifestyle condition one is usually used to, how does the problem appears, where and when does the pain occurs and which part of the body is affected are some of the questions that is being asked to the patient. Subsequently, the physician gets an idea of the cause and condition related to the problem and accordingly with the help of other diagnostic methods, the true nature of disorder is identified. It is important to employ all the three diagnostic method properly and carefully one after another to identify each and every disorder with accuracy and contentment.
