The diagnosis of illness is commonly done through a pulse reading. The color of the patient's tongue, the patient's general physical conditions, and the color of the eyes are also used as indicators to determine the problem.
The concept of sard (cold) and garni (hot) is a common feature to explain the patient's illness. This idea shows that a healthy person is balanced in between sard and garni and illnesses have the ability to take on sard or garni forms in an ill person, which are described through pulse reading and other diagnostic techniques. Prescriptions follow a balancing effect: sard medicines and diet for garni conditions and garni medicines and diet for sard conditions. Change in diet, specific diets, and other social prescriptions are given along with medicinal plant remedies.
