There are nine systems including Respiratory,Digestive,Excretory systems. they are very useful in making correct diagnose.
6.tail-bindu pariksha (an curability test for diseases)-

If we made an correct diagnose , we could confirmly treat the disease. Making an correct diagnose is by excellence of experience
Through rules of Ayurveda
when we talks about Ayurveda or an Ayurvedic Doctor, the image of a doctor who takes an look on patient, reads naadi (pulse) and gives medication only. but actually that is not complete Ayurveda. complete Ayurveda is medication with change of diet,lifestyle,daily regimen, seasonal regimen. medication comes third at priority of treatment techniques.
