Traditional Tibetan medicine is the ancient Buddhist medical system that applies a complex approach to diagnosis, incorporating techniques such as pulse diagnosis, urinalysis, tongue diagnosis and analytical diagnosis. To heal disease, the system applies dietary and behavioural factors, external therapies as well as medicines compounded from natural ingredients, mainly herbs and minerals.
Tibetan medicine is effective in all kinds of illness. It has proved particularly beneficial in the treatment of chronic diseases such as rheumatism, arthritis, ulcers, chronic digestive problems, asthma, hepatitis, eczema, liver problems, skin diseases, sinus problems, anxiety and problems connected with the nervous system, to name but a few.
The basic principle of Tibetan medicine is to maintain or restore the balance of the three subtle energies of the body. The long-term causative factors of these three energies are the three afflictive emotions of attachment, hatred and closed-minded ignorance. These establish the physical/energetic basis upon which good health and sickness are experienced.
