Tibetan Medicine

In the Tibetan traditional medicine system, the utilization of herbal formulas in spiritual practices is not uncommon. Some yogis who have attained supernatural abilities through their meditative practices are capable of subsisting on herbal pills alone. 

In the framework of Tibetan medicine the constitutional disorders and psycho-pathological disorders are treated with a holistic view by specific methods of treatment: diet, behavior or lifestyle, medicinal treatments and external therapies.
