Tibetan medicine is one of the greatest legacies of Tibetan Buddhist civilisation. It is a system that can contribute substantially to maintaining a healthy mind and a healthy body. Like the traditional Indian and Chinese systems, Tibeatn medicine views health as a question of balance. A variety of circumstances such as diet, lifestyle, seasonal and mental conditions can disturb this natural balance, which gives rise to different kinds of disorders.
As living beings we all wish to achieve happiness and avoid suffering. Our desire for health, for complete physical and mental well being,is an expression of this,for everyone wants to be well and no one wishes to be sick. Consequently health is not a matter of merely personal interest, but a universal concern for which we all share some responsibility. This is why the ideal physician is one who combines sound medical understanding with a strong realization of wisdom and compassion.
The Dalai Lama

BKS Iyengar:
Yoga is a philosophy, a science and an art. It is also a therapy. BKS Iyengar has not sacrificed the purity of the original teachings and has developed them,making an immense contribution to the knowledge and understanding of Yoga. He has systematized over two hundred asana and pranayama techniques and discovered the anatomical principles on which they are based. He shows how, in the asanas, the various parts of the body have to be positioned in their correct places,so that each individual part as well as their various physiological systems may function to their best potential.
This makes Yoga a challenge to the intelligence. Body, mind and breath are made to act in unison.
“We think we are so intelligent but we have no intelligence of the body”
BKS Iyenga

Dr. Passang Thopchen - B.T.M.S., D.T.C.M., M.D.

Dr. Passang Thopchen was born in Tibet he is third lineage of Namwed Kegal Tsang. Namwed Kegal who ruled Song choo area in east Tibet. Dr. Passang graduated in both Tibetan and Chinese medicines, in Tibet and China.

He practices a unique fusion of both disciplines and so is able to complement the administration of herbal medicine with acupuncture. He is totally dedicated to the ancient medical sciences and is constantly engaged in research. Tibetan medicine takes the whole person into account considering all aspects: lifestyle, diet, morality, and most important, the emotions. If unbalanced, these weaken the immune system and so are perceived as being the root cause of all sickness.

Prevention is better then cures. Doctor Passang cures through diet, moral behaviour, medicines and therapy (internal and external therapy) to treat the patient. Dr. Passang left Tibet in 1995 and has been practicing on the international community in Dharamsala and Pune, India. He has treated more then 100.000 patients in that time, and so has gained unprecedented insights into the national emotional characteristics he has encountered. Treatment always involves the patients in their own recovery.

Dr. Passang offers counseling and visualization as techniques to balance the mind, by changing the diet, morality. He has been successful in treating a wide spectrum of ailments, from drug addiction to the common cold. Perhaps it is because he comes from a medical back-ground (his mother is a qualified western medical doctor, she also used acupuncture).

But Dr. Passang accesses his ancestral intuition in both diagnosis and treatment. He conducts acupuncture and Tibetan medicine course. He never fails to hit his target and has had invariably positive feedback

Traditional Tibetan Medicine is a science and an art of living, dating back to antiquity. Although it has some superficial similarities with both Indian Ayurvedic medicine and traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Tibetan Medicine actually has a genesis, history, and development of its own - rooted in the Tibetan landscape, the indigenous culture, and the spirit of the Tibetan people.

One of the unique features of Traditional Tibetan Medicine is that it although it is generally practiced alongside of the Bon and Buddhist philosophy, Traditional Tibetan Medicine contains a comprehensive philosophy, cosmology, and system of subtle anatomy with associated spiritual and physical practices, in its own right. In addition, Traditional Tibetan Medicine encompasses a wealth of knowledge on anatomy and physiology, embryology, pathology, methods of diagnosis and cure and health care. The science of Traditional Tibetan Medicine includes a huge herbal pharmacopoeia, as well as a large body of external therapies including like, kun-ye (body massage), Acupuncture , Moxa, Cupping Etc., which are little-known in the Western world.

Traditional Tibetan Medicine is a holistic system, meaning that it addresses the individual’s needs as a whole – body, mind and spirit – in an integrated way. This includes the individual’s internal environment, as well as the way that the individual interacts with the external environment. A medical system, if not being practiced in the context of the Western world, simply becomes a museum-piece; an interesting but fossilised artifact with little modern relevance. Traditional Tibetan Medicine has the capacity be of great benefit to all in the current economic and social climate.

Traditional Tibetan Medicine focuses on the understanding of the body/mind and its relationship to the environment, and uses diagnostic techniques based on the insight, skills and compassion of the medical practitioner.
