What is Pulse Diagnosis?
Pulse diagnosis is a method of detecting and identifying present and underlying health conditions. If symptoms are already present, pulse diagnosis is used to identify the optimal treatment, or combination of treatments, for the patient’s unique situation. If no symptoms are present, the pulse can guide preventative and wellness treatment according to an individual's constitution.
What are the Benefits of Pulse Diagnosis?
Pulse diagnosis is a window into how each unique person can maintain optimal energy, health and vitality. If there are latent conditions, pulse diagnosis allows them to be addressed before symptoms occur. By avoiding or reducing future treatment costs, the patient also saves time and money. If symptoms are already present, pulse diagnosis can be used to create a customized treatment plan tailored to the individual.
