Based on the basic principles diagnostic criteria were developed for centuries. The diagnostics is aimed from the patients (with his temperament) and his illness (with her temperament) atrecognising. The individual and detailed consideration of the patient is decisive for the success of the therapy basing onit. In the following the most important diagnosis methods:
As in the modern medicine a thorough anamnesis is the heart of the diagnostics. Nevertheless, here more far-reaching aspects take an important position. Among the rest, the anamnesis contains:
illness-related aspects (kind, beginning, duration, intensivity, already occurred therapies …)
psychic activities (aggressiveness, joy, depressive disgruntlements, outburstsof rage …)
social factors (sphere, activities, family anamnesis …)
releasing causes or risk factors
Traits (actively, cautiously, communicatively, introverted, extrovert, patiently, creatively …)
Body qualities (build, hair, nails, skin temperature and state …)
Well-being and also indisposition with certain influence (weather, temperature, certain food, situations …)
Digestion (appetite, thirst, chair frequency and uric frequency, preferential food …)
According to patient and illness other factors can be complemented to the anamnesis. From the answers a general allocation is already to certain temperaments (the patient, as well asthe illness) possibly.
To the other verification of the temperament of the patient and the illness the pulse diagnosis is an important aid.

He pays attention with the investigation, among the rest, on:
Height / depth
By virtue of / weakness
Fullness / emptiness
Uric diagnostics and chair diagnostics
The digestion is a determining factor to the healthy preservation of the person. With the help of the bowel movementand the urine conclusions on illnessesare to be led. Here one pays attention on
This traditional diagnostics can be extended by modern methods, like labinvestigations, ultrasound, CT. etc. These confirm as a rule the findings (forexample, raised liver values by liver disturbance). The temperament of the illness can be also verified by means of modern apparativer diagnostics (forexample, congestive hepathopathy with too much humidity).
On account of this complicated diagnostics a first conversation is very time-consuming. However, this is the base for the therapy success.
