"The best work on Tibetan medicine ever to appear in English" (Dr. Barry Clark). Dr. Yeshi Donden served for over two decades as the personal physician to H.H. the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India, where he also reestablished the Tibetan Medical Center.

The fascinating Tibetan medical system has never been so clearly explained as in this collection of oustanding lectures presented at the University of Virginia in 1980. Tibetan medicine restores and maintains balance among the three humors of the body through a variety of treatments, diet and behaviour modification as well as the use of medicine and accessory theraphy. The basic system has been enhanced by the practical findings of Tibetan physicians who have used the system for more than a thousand years. Dr. Donden holistically considers factors of personality, season, age, climatic condition, diet, behaviour, and physical surroundings in addressing the means for restoring health. The great strength of tibetan medicine is that it is delicately responsive to patients, complete symptom pattern--no complaint being disregarded--and its wide variety of curative techniques are described in this book.

The fascinating Tibetan medical system clearly explained by the former personal physician to the Dalai Lama. Tibetan medicine restores and maintains balance among the three humors of the body through a variety of treatments - diet and behaviour modification as well as accessory therapy. The basic system has been enhanced by the practical findings of Tibetan physicians who have used the system for more than a thousand years. Dr. Dhonden holistically considers factors of personality, season, age, climatic condition, diet, behaviour, and physical surroundings in addressing the means of restoring health. The great strength of Tibetan medicine is that it is delicately responsive to patients complete sympton pattern - no complaint being disregarded - and it`s wide variety of curative techniques are described in this book.

About the Author:

Donden, the Dalai Lama's personal physician for some 20 years, fled to India during the 1959 Chinese invasion of his homeland and founded the Tibetan Medical Center at Dharmsala. There, and in private practice, he has built a reputation for successfully treating Indians of all ranks with a holistic system of medicine derived from ancient Buddhist principles. Although that system, detailed in these accessible Univ. of Virginia lectures, emphasizes the integrative treatment certain Western physicians are rediscovering, its tenets on the preordained spiritual aspects of disease remain foreign to our culture. Nonetheless, Donden intriguingly fits together parts of the complex puzzle called health.

Reviews:

"Dr.Dhonden is totally attuned to everything that is going on. He uses all his senses as his medical instrument. Our patients have been very impressed." - Dr.Geral Goldstein, University of Virginia.

"I Think this book is going to be the best work on Tibetan medicine ever to appear in English." - Dr. Barry Clark

"Supported by appendices, a bibliography, technical notes and index the translator has taken great pains to make the book appeal to an international audience, particularly to critical scholars from others systems of medicine." - Uma Krishnaswamy

"...it can be said that here is an interesting book which gives good information regarding Buddhist medical practices." - Dr.B.R. Modak

The book will be of interest to those who wish to know, in some detail, the principles of the Tibetan health-care system. - Kamala S. Jaya Rao
