The clinical perspective in Ayurveda: Holistic understanding beyond medical diagnostics

Sascha Kriese BA Hons (Ayu) (UK)

The Ayurvedic Clinical Gaze: Holistic Understanding beyond Medical Diagnostics

Clinical terms are linguistic symbols that form the basis of any medical language; however, as semantic abstractions they also distinctly impact the clinical gaze and the subsequent therapeutic approach. To put it differently: medical words along with their underlying viewpoints have a tremendous influence on professional perception in the clinical context and, consequently, also on the therapeutic as well as personal interaction with patients. With reference to the symposium theme “Pariksha”, this talk will offer a detailed consideration of the semantic content and the conceptual foundation of the terms pariksha and diagnosis in the context of a holistic clinical approach. What exactly differentiates modern diagnostics from Ayurvedic examination strategies? What kind of impact do these distinct approaches have on the professional relationship with patients and the overall therapeutic process? And what are crucial aspects that Ayurvedic practitioners need to consider in order to justify the bold claim of having a holistic understanding in clinical practice?
