"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.
