AN OVERVIEW OF PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH USE OF MODERN INVESTIGATORY TECHNIQUES FOR DIAGNOSIS OF DISEASES IN AYURVEDA
Āyurveda science has a very scientific methodology for diagnosing disease but the skill to adopt that methodology is vanishing day by day. Though various modern diagnostic techniques are evolved in modern medical science, all of them cannot be directly adopted for diagnosis in Āyurveda. In this article, problems associated with use of modern investigatory techniques for diagnosis of diseases in Āyurveda has been discussed. Physiology and Pathology of Āyurvedaare quite different from that of modern medical science. In diagnosing pathologies associated with anatomical abnormalities, these modern investigatory techniques can be adopted easily but the diagnostic tools based on biochemical changes in body cannot be adopted in Āyurveda unless one has proper understanding of basic principles of Āyurveda.
