Principles of Tibetan Medicine: The Only Introduction You'll Ever Need
"As people increasingly seek for alternatives to modern medicine, interest is growing in the ancient system of Tibetan medicine, which has been practised for over 2,500 years. Known as 'gSo-ba-Rig-pa', or 'the science of healing', it is based on Buddhist philosophical principles, astrology and the close relationship between body and spirit. This simple introduction includes: theory and practice of Tibetan medicine; historical background; diagnosis, treatments and therapies; and tips for healthy diet and lifestyle."--Publisher's description.
