Tibetan Medication

Traditional Tibetan medicine (Sowa-Rigpa medicine) is defined in simple terms as the old traditional medical system which practices complex techniques that are used for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of illness. The techniques include pulse analysis and urinalysis which uses medicines composed of natural materials such as herbs and minerals, physical therapies which include the Tibetan acupuncture, moxibustion. This medical system is a combination of the Indian, Persian, Greek, the indigenous Tibetan, and ancient Traditional Chinese Medical systems.

The Four Tantras (Root Tantra, Exegetical Tantra, Instructional Tantra, Subsequent Tantra) are native Tibetan texts that are incorporated in various systems such as Indian, Chinese and Greco-Arab medical systems. The Four Tantras are the basis of Tibetan medical practice. It is the common name for the text of the Secret Tantra Instruction on the Eight Branches, the Immortality Elixir essence.
