What does Tibetan Medicine implie?

Tibetan medicine is based on a very systematic and logical framework that shows a complete understanding of the body – and its relation to the environment – displaying a holistic approach when looking for the causes of the illnesses.

Tibetan medicine pills are hand-made of pure herbs and minerals, produced
in highly protected environments using very effective and recognized formulae.

Tibetan dietary and lifestyle arrangements that are advised to complement the pills are very effective in treating chronic disorders, such as: arthritis, asthmas, bronchitis, high blood pressure, rheumatism, gastric acidities, hormone imbalance, low immune system, depression and mental illnesses.
Its aim is to balance the fundamental energies and to help people attain a better quality of life. Amchi Bhutia has more than fifteen years of experience in this field and has proven to be highly succesful.

Tibetan medicine is a science, art and philosophy that provide a holistic approach to health care. It is a science because its principles are enumerated in a systematic and logical framework based on an understanding of the body and its relationship to the environment. It is an art because it uses diagnostic techniques based on the creativity, insight, subtlety and compassion of the medical practitioner.
And it is a philosophy because it embraces the key Buddhist principles of altruism, karma and ethics. Buddhist philosophy states that everything in the universe is ina constant state of flux – that all phenomenons are characterised by impermanence, and that the only permanent feature is impermanence itself. As Buddha said, "No matter whether perfect beings arise or not, it remains a fact, and a hard necessity of existence, that all creations are transitory." It is this impermanence that causes each and every being to suffer at one stage or another. Suffering is thus not accidental but springs from a specific cause, whether from this life or a previous life. Only through proper learning and the genuine practice of Dharma one can liberate from the vicious cycle of suffering.

Tibetan medical theory states that everything in the universe is made up of the five proto-elements:

1. Sa (Earth)
2. Chu (Water)
3. Mei (Fire)
4. rlong (Wind)
5. Nam-kha (Space)

Although all five proto-elements are responsible for the formation of each tissue cell, each element has a specific influence:

1. sa (earth) exerts a greater influence over the formation of muscle cells, bones, the nose and the sense of smell
2. Chu (water) is responsible for the formation of blood, body fluids, tongue and the sense of taste
3. mei (fire) is responsible for body temperature, complexion, the eyes and the sense of sight
4. rLong (wind) is responsible for breathing, skin and the sense of touch and
5. nam-mkha (space) is responsible for body cavities, the ears and the sense of hearing

The Three Principle Energies:

1. rLung (wind) is one of the three principle energies of the body and mind which manifests the nature of Air element.
It is characterised by rough, light, cold, subtle, hard and mobile. It is responsible for the physical and mental activities such as respiration, expulsion of urine, faeces, foetus, menstruation, and spitting, burping, speech, gives clarity to sense organs, sustains life by means of acting as a medium between mind and body. Specialy our immune system, blood circulation, respiration, hormone systems, function of the five sensory organs, it is particularly associated with our organs such as heart, lung, intestine, large intestine, brain and consiousness.There are five more long energies which are life supporting, pervasive, fire accompanying, and downward clearing wind.

2. mKhris-pa (Bile) basically has the nature of fire. It is characteris ed by oily, sharp, hot, light, fetid, purgative and fluidity. mKhris-pa is responsible for hunger, thirst, digestion and assimilation, promotes bodily heat, gives lustre to body complexion and provides courage and determination. Specialy with our metabolism system, vascular system. It is particularly associated with our organs such as Liver, Gall bladder, stomach and spleen.

3. Bad-kan (Phlegm) is cold in nature and is characterised by oily, cool, heavy, blunt, smooth, firm and sticky. Bad-kan is responsible for firmness of the body, stability of mind, induces sleep, connects bodily joints, generates tolerance and lubricates the body. Our lymphatic system, central nerves system, is particularly associated with our organs such as kidney, urinary blader, pancreas and male female reproductive organs.

A Healthy Body:

Sowa rigpa (the art and science of healing or traditional Tibetan medicine, astronomy and astrology) involves the proper alignment of these divisions i.e. the 3 humours, 7 bodily constituents and 3 excretions, into a state of equilibrium. If this is accomplished, then the body is said to be in a state of health or free from psycho-physiological disorders; whereas disequilibrium in any of these energies constitutes a state of disorder or ill-health.
