2/23/2013: Tibetan Medicine 3 – Diagnosis


Today was the third installment of our fascinating series on Tibetan Medicine. We had the good fortune to have Dr. Tenzin Namdul join us to explore Diagnosis and Treatment options offered through Tibetan Medicine. Tenzin Namdul was born and raised in India. He graduated from and served as a doctor of traditional Tibetan Medicine, faculty member, and Director of Clinical Research at the Men-Tsee-Khang (MTK), the Tibetan Medical Institute of H.H. the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India.

Pulse Reading

Prior to the show, Laurie Beth Fitz had a consultation with Dr. Tenzin and part of the show included reflections on her personal experience of the process of collecting health information and suggestions for her well being and health. We encourage you to listen to this show and learn about the specific types of diagnosis and treatment options that can be offered through Tibetan Medicine.

Dr. Tenzin Namdul provides consultations at the Bhakti Wellness Center and will be doing so through August 2013. In August Dr. Namdul will be leaving to pursue his PhD at Emory University. If you are interested in having a consultation, you may schedule an appointment with Dr. Namdul online or through a phone call listed on the Bhakti website.

To learn more about your “individual constitution” you may take a free online Constitutional Self-Assessment Tool (CSAT) that provides you with a broad analysis of your constitution and supports your health and well being by providing some specific lifestyle and behavior suggestions to enhance your health and well being.

Our next Tibetan Medicine radio show will continue to explore treatment options as well as the potential for integrated care with our health care system, be sure to check back here or on our Facebook page for more information about upcoming shows.
