Published by etokar
This article provides a description of traditional Tibetan medical diagnosis, and explains how a Tibetan physician perceives and analyzes a presenting illness. It discusses the spiritual, psychological and physical aspects of the Tibetan medical approach to diagnosis. The diagnostic procedure is the method by which a person's medical condition is interpreted into the conceptual framework and language of medical science. To make use of an ancient traditional medical system we must first be able to comprehend the singular concepts and language it utilizes to understand and describe health and illness. By doing so we can understand what is unique about this system of alternative medicine and how it can inform other models of medical practice.
