From years we have been seeing people predicting futures and fortunes from the impressions of the dermis of the palm. What if i say these can be used to predict or even estimate the outcomes of health by those????
Well, anatomically, these palmar impressions are the joining or the union of underlying deep fascia with the superficial fascia (skin). The art of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of the palm, also known as palm reading (palmistry), or chirology (chiromancy or cheiromancy). The practice is found all over the world, with numerous cultural variations.Palms have lines, ridges, and deeper lines (shape of hands) that reflect characteristics of a person. When reading a palm we can identify and diagnose the diseases according to the characters.Palmistry is based upon the interpretation of the general characteristics of one's hands, together with the study of the lines, their patterns and other formations and marks, which appear on the palms and fingers.Although the general nature of one's hands does not change, the lines, patterns and formations do. Palmistry may relate to the physical state, emotional, mental and health condition, tendencies and modes of interaction with others.Palmistry is a marvelous edifice today. It borrows its stones from the ancient civilizations of all lands. Your palm is your personality. Very few people realize that they are carrying around a full-scope map of their character and potentialities. Besides being a fascinating study, palmistry can help in vocational guidance, health and psychological diagnosis, partnership compatibility, etc.
The art and science of hand - reading originated in India. The ancient monuments of India take us back to the prehistoric period of the Aryan civilization. Among the Hindu sages who propagated this art include Garga, Gautama, Bharadwaja, Agastya, Bhrigu, Atri and Kashyapa. It is mentioned in the Puranas that the divine sage, Narada, practised this art. Maharshi Valmiki is reported to have written a book entitled “The Teachings of Valmiki Maharshi on Male Palmistry, comprising 567 stanzas, about 4,000 to 5,000 years ago.From India, the art of hand - reading spread to China, Tibet, Egypt, Persia and to other countries in Europe. Palmistry came to China about 3,000 years before the birth of Christ. It progressed well in Greece where Anaxagoras practiced it. According to Hindu philosophy; a person takes birth according to his / her past actions (karmas). As Human beings differ in shape, features, constitution, etc., so do the lines on the hands so that the redges on the thumb and papillary lines on the fingers and the thumb do not agree with those on any other thumb and fingers even from amongst billon people.
Medical Palmistry in Practice is an excellent guide to diagnosis of different physical and psychological disorders through analysis of nails, fingers, palm and different lines and signs of the hand. The link between palmistry and health is an established fact. The hand is indeed an indicator of health problems.

A medical palmist can predict both the existing and advancing health problems, a person is facing or likely to face. Anything beyond normal is abnormal is the logic used after providing a criterion for normal hand.
