- Usage of Tibetan medicine
- The consultation with a Tibetan physician
- Some Tibetan physicians begin with the questioning of the patient, others apply first different diagnostic methods and ask afterwards questions about the complaints and their previous history. It is meaningful to bring along notes to the complaints, and the questions which one has to the physician.
The Tibetan physician can apply different diagnosis procedures. The most important is the pulse diagnosis. Here the physician feels the energy flow of the different organs with his fingertips. In addition he receives much information from the analysis of the urine. Additionally to the treatment with medicine, the physician can give statements for the nutrition and life-style. Sometimes the thermal treatment (Moxa) or Acupuncture is used also.
