How to prepare yourself for a visit or consultation
with a Physician at a Tibetan Medical Clinic

Because Western patients most often have a history of unsuccessful allopathic treatment, years of suffering and disappointing experiences with Western modes of treatment, they turn to alternate healing systems. Not knowing the holistic approach of Tibetan medical treatment, many patients expect a miraculous cure; exchanging their allopathic tablets with Tibetan herbal pills without making any diet or lifestyle modifications.

Tibetan medical treatment requires the patient to participate, to take responsibility for their life force and make the necessary diet and behavior modifications needed. Not wanting to take such responsibilities for one’s health may lead to further disappointment and misinterpretation of the Tibetan medical culture.

More and more patients from different cultures world wide are seeking appointments with Tibetan trained physicians. and generally do not know the basic principles of holistic medicine and specially Tibetan medicine at the time of their appointment. Because consultations usually last 30 to 50 minutes, precious time should not be wasted with questions such as “What is WIND, BILE and PHLEGM?” That information and more will be provided to the patient if they do not have it already.

Removing the obstacles to healing is a good first approach and obstacles can be recognized as psychological, physical or both, but whatever the obstacle, it can be recognized and removed. Where the issues are psychological, it may be necessary to revise subconscious scripts. On the physical side, often diet and lifestyle regimes need to be revised, healing internal organ energy issues and the balance within the three humours may need to be addressed. In nearly every instance, once the obstacle is addressed, healing proceeds swiftly and failure to eliminate the obstacle diminishes the effectiveness of whatever treatment is used. The Tanaduk clinic provides individual and affective healing protocols that can be easily understood.

A tip on how to prolong life from Amchi Thubten Lekshe

“There is a really good method to prolong life and that is by saving life, by saving the life of many beings in danger you are working to remove obstacles that may hinder your long life. For example, by buying and the letting free or finding homes for animals that are going to be killed or are suffering. In India people go to fishermen, buy many fish and let them free. Saving the life of living beings is the best method to prolong ones own life. This behavior is followed both by Buddhists and by Hindus. There are also several Tibetan pills that are helpful like the Nagpo Gutup Pill, which is made of 9 substances and contains many blessings and from the point of view of Tibetan Medicine “it has the potency of prolonging life, protects against illness and makes us more happy.”
