Do you feel that something is wrong in your body, but you don’t know what? You check with the doctor, but find no particular pathology. We often get into the trap of putting all our trust into doctors, instead of trusting ourselves. What makes you think the doctor will know you better than you? Who but you knows how you feel, what stresses you most? What life situation you have been through? What food makes you feel better or worse?
In the summer I was visiting Tibet again, with a group of enthusiastic therapists from the Sorig Khang Interantional. In China (Tibet), traditional Tibetan medicine hospitals in Tibet function parallel to Western and traditional Chinese medicine hospitals. The patients choose where they want to be treated.
Stressed, exhausted and burned out? Insomnia, anxiety, depression, difficulties with concentration? Or just need support to relax and rest? Try the Genghis Khan's favourite therapy - Horme, or Mongolian moxibustion.
Are your a type of Fire, Wind or Phlegm? If you think there is one universal diet, treatment or healthy lifestyle that is suitable for everyone, you are in big mistake. We are all different, and what suits one, can be harmful for another. Traditional Tibetan medicine has classified different types of people according to the prevalence of Five elements. It is crucial to know and understand oneself, and Tibetan medicine is very helpful here.
