      Tibetan Medicine is a healing system that is several centuries old and is the principal medical system practiced in Tibet, Mongolia, Bhutan, Siberia, India and several other Asian countries. It has its origin since 657 BC prior to the advent of Buddhism into Tibet from India. It is a unique holistic healing system which takes into account the physical, mental, spiritual and environmental conditions contributing to symptoms and disorders.
​      When you are in an imbalance or in a dis-eased state, Tibetan holistic therapies can bring you back into alignment and support you by offering diet and lifestyle suggestions specific to your individual needs, providing spiritual insight, physical therapies and when added support is needed the Tibetan botanical supplements may be suggested. The famous Tibetan botanical pill and special Tibetan Jewel Pill supplements are designed to be effective for many different kinds of illnesses and chronic health issues.

Distant Healing

Tibetan lamas are available to perform special spiritual practices (pujas) that generates healing specific to the request. These prayer puja’s are offered for the benefit of individuals who are ill, have certain troubles and for those recently deceased. A donation is traditionally offered to cover the cost of the materials (incense, many types of offerings etc.) used in the blessing prayer puja’s. Additional funds to support the work of the lamas are also always welcome; in the Tibetan tradition it is believed that such donations add to the energetic cohesive effectiveness of the blessing ceremony for whom it is offered and for the person making the request and sending the donation.

Following are some resources for the study of Tibetan Medicine from the ITM library that are in the English language.  There are numerous other small books available from the same publishers.  Most of the Tibetan medical books published in English began to appear in the mid-1970’s, shortly after Tibetans began to tour the major Western cities to describe their dilemma.  Several of the books are now out of print, but may still be found in stores that specialize in used books.  Four authors have produced many of the titles: Tsarong, Dash, Donden, and Rapgay; their books are listed first, and they have produced other books as well that are not in the ITM library.
