Introduction: Pulse is one of the most important diagnostic tools used from ancient times, which needs accuracy and focus. Unlike any other faculty of medicine, this age old science of alternative healing is a study of energy which neither can be measured nor be seen. It can only be palpated at the wrist. Palpation and its interpretation bring forth the detail analysis of energy and its patterns and thus further can be accurately diagnose the exact illness or disorder. This is called a pulse diagnosis because of the need of going deeper into my own understanding and knowledge, I started researching and studying this subject intensely and got some extraordinary results. Following is the brief summary of my findings so far as my research is going on at present. The Pulse & Diagnosis Patterns: The Pulse has dynamism, fluidity and changeability. It is multi-dimensional in depth, rate, rhythm, strength, shape etc., reflecting the overall wellbeing in person, identifying the state of mental, emotional and spiritual health. Findings: The pulse study of around 1,00,000 patients so far, has shown me a clear, multi- layered and textured picture of these dimensions. This led me go deeper into analyzing it further to finally find approximately 100 definite patterns, proving as the most effective guiding tool in diagnosing the complete ill and/or otherwise condition of patients and help to understand the line of treatment and prognosis of the disease.
