Tibetan medicine is a centuries-old traditional system encompassing spiritual,medical science and social behavior in the paradigm of holistic health. Disease or imbalance is diagnosed mainly through pulse analysis, urinalysis and healthy interrogation and understanding of one’s dietary and life style factors. Herbo-mineral formulations in the form of pills, powders, decoctions etc and several accessory therapies are used to treat illness. Proper diet and lifestyle changes along with healthy mental attitude will be strongly emphasized. The Tibetan medical system is based upon a synthesis of Ayurveda, Unani, Greek, indigenous Tibetan, and Chinese medical systems. It is practiced in Tibet, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Ladakh, Siberia, China and Mongolia, and more recently in parts of Europe and North America. It embraces the traditional Buddhist belief that all illness ultimately results from the "three poisons" of the mind: ignorance, attachment and aversion. Therefore, the mind, body and spirits play very crucial role in understanding and the treatment of disease as a whole. The Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959 and the notorious Cultural Revolution that took place from 1966 to 1976 virtually destroyed all the precious cultural heritage of Tibet and Tibetan people including its ancient medical system. How ever, the efforts of the Government in Exile headed by HH the Dalai Lama has established in 1962, the Men Tsee-Khang (House of Medicine and Astrology) at Dharamsala in Himacahl Pradesh which now has 55 Branch clinics all over India and Nepal. Dr Dorjee Rapten Neshar and his medical team cover the health services through Tibetan Medicine in Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and other south Indian cities and towns.
