Space scientist talks about Palm Reading

Kumar, 42, is a scientist at the Indian Space Research Organization in Bangalore, India. Twelve years ago, a palm reader told him by looking at the palm of his hand that he would become a palm reader himself.

It was a prediction that really embarrassed Kumar, he said in an e-mail, but that ended up igniting his interest in palm reading reading. He spent years reading books and learning about this science and ended up opening his own practice.There, Kumar said, he observed many hands and was able to detect similarities in the palm linese of people living with certain type of diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease. This led to his visit to the Regional Cancer Center where he studied the palm lines of about 160 patients with cancer. According to Kumar’s observations, most of them had the same lines.”It made me think of another matter”, said Kumar. “If this disease is detected in the primary stage itself, it is quite curable. Then why can’t we get precaution against this fatal disease through finding the palm line symptoms? Really, this notion opened before me the endless and eventful vista of medical palm reading.”

Medical Palm Reading around the world

The general definition of palm reading is the study of the hand lines to predict the future, assess personalities and provide counseling. Medical palm reading on the other hand, looks at the hand’s lines, shape and texture to detect abnormalities that will help diagnose physical and mental diseases.

For centuries, Chinese and Indian medicine has recognized the link between palmistry and good health. Abnormalities such as vertical ridges on the fingernails, or a life line that’s faint in color, can represent a diagnosis for all sorts of illnesses from intestinal problems to heart disease. The Catholic Church, for its part, has always branded palm reading as devil worship and forced it underground.

So far however, this science is still far from being accepted in the West. According to Kenneth Lagerstrom, a professional palmist and founder of a website on the human hand, in North America “the palms of the hands are sometimes called ‘no man’s land’ because it’s expected that no self-respecting medical professional will deal with palmistry.”

Another reason for the West’s reluctance to recognize medical palm reading as a reliable diagnosis tool is the lack of belief in what is considered by many here as an “occult science,” Lagerstrom said. In addition, he blames his fellow practitioners themselves for all the uncertainties still surrounding medical palm reading.

“In my opinion,” he said, “more than 95 percent of them are either dangerously incompetent or outright fraudulent. Very few seek details that can be scientifically or medically verified, preferring instead to make their readings either fortune-telling or ‘spiritual.’”
