Tibetan Medicine is a complex, enormously powerful science that is attracting more and more attention. This is largely because despite its ancient origins it seems to be able to provide answers to modern health problems for which western medicine has found no solution. Patients from all over the world make their way to the medical centre founded by exiled Tibetans in Dharamsala, in search of 'precious pills' prepared according to ancient recipes. These unique, miraculous remedies, made from gold, silver and precious stones ground down with plants and herbs, can cure cancers, heart disease and chronic illnesses which other medical systems would considers hopeless. In the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, patients suffering from radiation sick ness were able to leave hospital after taking Tibetan remedies. And those whose problems are rooted in emotional or spiritual imbalances find a new sense of optimism and fulfillment from the renowned consciousness-raising exercises promoted by Tibetan Lamas. Tibetan Medicine is very exact and comprehensive: illnesses are strictly categorized and treated with combinations of remedies that help the body to regain its overall balance. The most skilled practitioners can diagnose every weakness and malfunction simply by taking the patient's pulse, and their recommendations will cover diet, lifestyle and spiritual values, as well as herbal and other remedies. Tibetan Medicine is a beautifully illustrated, comprehensive and fascinating insight into an ancient healing system that provides highly effective remedies for all illnesses of the modern age.
